Thank you author mamas for participating in The Writer Mama Every-Day-In-May Book Giveaway!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the resurrection of our giveaway for 2011! 🙂

I have listed all of our generous authors below. What a bunch of wonderfully hard-working and generous authors! Please help me thank them!

Thank you to everyone who came by and commented. Congratulations to our winners! (I think we had double winners this year, but no triple winners.) Even if you did not win, I hope you benefited from participating. I appreciate your support and hope you will return for my big book-launch party on December 6th. 🙂

Hosting the giveaway has really served as a great reminder for me of just how many talented, successful mom authors there are in the world. Let’s support them as much as we can. We don’t exactly live in a world that encourages professional strides in creative moms, so I hope that the giveaway has helped inspire you to find the inner strength and great determination it takes to champion your writing career in the long run.

    This was great and I had LOADS of fun getting up and seeing what was on the agenda for the day!  As you mentioned, I cannot imagine the work that YOU put into it, but I (as I am sure, all of us) thank you for introducing us to some great author mamas and helping us hash out what we want from our own writing in the process!

    Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway all month long! It was fun “meeting” all these authors!

    It was fun “meeting” new authors, reading all the blog comments, and revisiting my own personal writing goals after a break of more than a year. Even without winning any books this time, I feel like a winner! Thanks again, Christina!

    Christina, thanks so much for doing this giveaway. I know it’s tons of work to administer. What a wonderful way to connect writer mamas and reader mamas. I really enjoyed participating.
