Winners: Fournicopia & Jill Shalvis

Friday, August 3

Well my Musings friends, I think this will be the last Winners post I do for a while.  No, I'm not going to close the blog, or stop doing giveaways....just the way that I have been doing them.

Selecting winners has always been somewhat of a chore, not to mention keeping track of the ones that have longer cutoff dates, and hoping not to forget one.  Then there is the sad fact that some winners never claim their prizes.

Recently I tried out the Rafflecopter widget on a whim, since I had seen it all over the web I was curious.  I was also skeptical about it, and I really didn't want to add anything else to possibly make the posts load slower, but decided to give it a try a few times.  I have to admit that it's easy, and it's a huge time saver for me. It will keep track of the entries, select the winner using, and you can even email the winner direct from the their site with a push of a button.  It's seductively simple, and I like that...I need to streamline where I can and this is a no brainer.

So from this point forward, when possible, a Rafflecopter widget will be added to the giveaways.  Winners will be emailed via Rafflecopter, and displayed on the widget on the actual giveaway, eliminating the need for these "Winner" posts.  How do you feel about this change?  Do you like the Rafflecopter entries?


To celebrate the release of Fournicopia, Delilah Devlin offered to giveaway a digital book from her backlist to lucky Musings follower...

(Delilah has already emailed the winner, 
so there's no need to contact me)

To celebrate the release of At Last and Forever and a Day, Jill's publisher Forever Romance, would like to giveway a both books to lucky Musings follower...

Congratulations!   As always, you can click on any of the links or the book covers found on this blog to purchase the books you are dying to read...even if you didn't win them.  If you didn't win one of these, don't lose heart because I'll have some new ones for you soon!

If however,  you've been lucky enough to have already won these book(s) in another giveaway please let me know so that alternate winner(s) can be selected.  The winner(s) will have until Sunday 5th to contact me with your mailing address, otherwise the prize will be forfeited, and an alternate winner may be selected.

Hey Carin,

Thanks for the heads up that I forgot to put the name in there for Delilah's giveaway!

I've put it in there now :)

Rafflecopter is good because you know if you've entered a contest or not versus google or scrolling through (possibly) many comments to make sure you haven't already left a comment.

The bad part is that the two computers I use sometimes have issues and don't work well with rafflecopter.

I like Rafflecopter as long as the entry requirements are not a mile long and/or start out with following or liking someone on Twitter. Some folks need to remember the KISS theory! And, I think if something can keep it simple for the person handling the giveaway...well, that's a good thing!

Rafflecopter is fine as long as you are going to email the winners. The widget doesn't display in google reader, so the only way to see the winner is to go back to that post and check it. Unless you notified us that a winner was selected, we'd never know when to do that.

I loved Rafflecopter in the beginning but it has become so tedious for me because it constantly times out when I lave to fulfill a request and I have to re-enter and start over. It's always like this for me. But of course it's whatever makes it easier for you. I don't think this happens to anyone else. :)

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
