Congratulations, Mary! I've already sent over an email so be sure to get back to me ASAP! And a huge thank you to everyone who entered!
Just a reminder to those who do enter my giveaways, if I require you to do something in order to enter, say follow a blog, that means it's a REQUIREMENT. Not an option. If I give you a yes or no option, the no option being facetious since it's a requirement and I expect entrants to actually comply with requirements, you need to select yes (or otherwise comply with the requirement). If you select no IT WILL KICK YOU OUT OF THE GIVEAWAY. While my no option may be facetious I will not consider your answer of a joking manner. I'll take it as no, you didn't comply with the requirement and yet entered anyway and I'll delete your entry from the form list. I don't believe this is all that difficult.
Hell, YOU CAN LIE TO ME. I don't actually confirm the winners are followers. I work on the honor system out of no other reason than I'm far too lazy to follow through on that. I'm comfortable in the knowledge that people may be humoring me. If I give you a silly answer option and that's what you pick I'll default it to you complying. If you tell me yes I'll take your word for it. Tell me no and I'll roll my eyes and delete your entry.
Bottom line - DON'T ANSWER IN THE NEGATIVE. It seriously boggles my mind how many people do. That just shows me that 1) you didn't read the directions, 2) you blatantly ignored the directions and/or 3) you figured I wouldn't care either way and I wasn't really being serious about the requirements. None of these things are good.
Am I asking for too much? I don't think so. I'm giving you a chance to win something for nothing out of your pocket except a few seconds of your time. Some people think that's too much for me to be asking. Those people can blow me. For me to get in a position to be able to give these books away was a basket of dicks in work so forgive me for wanting a modicum of return on that. Silly, Donna, I know.
