Winners of the "Get LOVE SAVES THE DAY Out the Door with a Bang" Contest!
Many, many thanks to everyone who purchased a copy of LOVE SAVES THE DAY last week and entered the "Get LOVE SAVES THE DAY Out the Door with a Bang!" contest. I'm thrilled to be able to announce the following winners:
Third Prize: Autographed copies of LOVE SAVES THE DAY and Homer's Odyssey, plus one of the original photos of Homer (also autographed!) used to create the artwork for Homer's Odyssey, goes to Lynn Warry. Con-cat-ulations, Lynn! Homer and I are thrilled to have pawtographed books and a photo on their way to you now.
Second Prize: A portrait of your own cat, dog, horse, parrot, or any animal you call friend, by Sue Hains, the incredibly talented animal portrait artist who painted an absolutely stunning portrait of Homer, goes to Patricia Johnson. Patricia, I know you're going to be absolutely delighted with Sue's work. She has a real knack for capturing the inner spirit of an animal on the canvas.
And, finally, the Grand Prize Winner of an in-person visit from me plus a $500 to the animal-related charity of her choice is (drum roll please): Lisbeth Erikson of South Carolina! Hooray for Lisbeth! :D
Lisbeth has already graciously offered to donate her prize--both the donation and the visit from me--to the SPCA Albrect Center for Animal Welfare in Aiken. Which makes the SPCA the first officially-announced stop on my LOVE SAVES THE DAY tour, commencing this spring. The rest of my tour stops will be announced right here on GwenCooper.com on Thursday, February 14th! LOVE SAVES THE DAY this Valentine's Day, so stay tuned!
Many thanks again to everybody who entered, and if you weren't one of the contest winners, fear not! There will be plenty more contests in the weeks and months to come, plus a 15-city tour (and possibly more, because it's getting darn near impossible to choose among these shelters), during which I hope to meet many, many of you in purr-son.
Thank you again!
