This past Saturday, I conducted the drawing for the winner of Bargain with the Devil by Enid Wilson (she guest posted last Thursday). I wrote down all the names of those who commented except for Enid herself (I’m excited to say that I commented 5 times. Woo-woo, five entries! Just kidding.)
Each name went on a separate piece of paper. Then I put a doggie treat on the kitchen floor, mounded the names over the treat and directed Ruffles, my miniature Schnauzer to the pile.
I should point out that Ruffles is 15 years old, nearly blind, mostly deaf, has to be carried up the steps -- but at mealtimes or treat times, you’d think she was still a pup.
Once she got the smell of the treat, she bounded and shoved aside pieces of paper until she had the treat. There was only one piece of paper near by and it was stuck under her left hind paw. The winner.
The winner is Laura Eno.
Laura writes the blog, A Shift in Dimensions. I noticed she has an email link on her Profile, so I’ll be emailing her today to get a snail mailing address.
This is the first time I’ve gotten to give away a visiting author’s book. It was fun. And Ruffles appreciated the unexpected treat.
As for the necklace and coasters, keep checking Enid’s blog. She’ll be giving those away from there.
