Seven Little Australians and Counting. Erin and I have been "talking" via our blogs for some time now, and it is my pleasure to gift her with a signed copy of Finding Grace--particularly because I believe she has some kids who might be just the right age to enjoy it. (But I hope you'll enjoy it, too, Erin! Although it is categorized as "teen/young adult" fiction'" it is also considered "women's inspirational Christian fiction.")
I wrote the names of everyone who left me comments--whether on this original post announcing the giveaway, or on this reminder post, or on any post that's appeared on this blog from the time the contest started until last night at midnight--on little slips of paper. Then I put those papers in my husband's leather cowboy hat (which makes him look like an Australian rancher, in my opinion--so perhaps it was in the cards for Erin to win!). I made my rancher wanna-be shut his eyes and pick the winner for me. And there you have it.
This is my third book giveaway here at "String of Pearls," and I had more names in the hat for this drawing than I did either of the other times! Thanks to everyone who played along.
Have a beautiful Sunday, and God bless you and yours throughout this beautiful season of Advent.
