Yeah, you know the Cynthia Roberts Tour with the 5 grand prizes where I was supposed to pick 5 finalists? Well due to a computer issue this morning, I was unable to submit my finalists and missed the cutoff time , which to be honest I thought I had till the end of the day to send in. I did go to the library after I lost my internet here, but they now block blog postings on their computers, so anyways, I will pick one winner tomorrow and they can pick from my list of read books as a consolation prize. In the future, I will no longer participate in these types of giveaways unless I am certain I have 24 hours to submit my winners. I thought the contest ended at midnight my time (Pacific) and since I am way behind the rest of the country, it is just too hard for me to get all of my stuff together by a central or east coast deadlines. This wasn't intentional on my part, but things happen and this isn't something I get paid for. I don't know of any of the book bloggers who actually make a profit on their blog. I do this for fun and to meet other book lovers. This is so not fun and I feel really bad about not being able to submit my finalists. I know no one wants to hear excuses, but electronics and me aren't exactly agreeing lately. And there, I have officially ranted myself out, something I rarely do in public.
I will have the rest of the winners posted for all of the contests that ended yesterday up as well...sorry for the delay.
On the bright side, my son now has a new laptop with a working internet port and screen! TGIF!
So, here is what is coming up tomorrow:
Winners for Top Commentator and September Mystery Books!
A Nice post about Sunday's OC Children's Book Fest.
And more ROCKTOBER!
Oh, Susan, if you are reading this out in the middle of nowhere, I can post on win a book tomorrow.
