Last week on The Sunday Spotlight, I featured the new issue of Hunger Mountain, No. 20 Edges and offered a free copy to be given away, chosen from those who left a comment on the post. As promised, I’m posting the winner today. But first I want to mention that only two people (!) entered the giveaway by commenting on that blog post, so it was a 50/50 chance of winning. Way better odds than playing the lottery! And I also want to note that both those people are friends of mine, so just to be clear that I did not play favorites and this was a bona fide blind giveaway, this is how it went:
I wrote the two names on pieces of paper, folded them, placed them behind my back and mixed them up. My husband chose which hand (my right), and the winner is… Susanna Donato!
I’ve got three more giveaways planned. The next one is up tomorrow for a free (new and unused) copy of Family Trouble: Memoirists on the Hazards and Rewards of Revealing Family, edited by Joy Castro. Also planned for the near future are new copies of two books by Sue William Silverman, Love Sick and The Pat Boone Fan Club: My Life As a White Anglo Saxon Jew, and Jodi Paloni’s linked stories collection They Could Live with Themselves, newly released by Press 53. So keep an eye out to enter these giveaways.
