Big Giveaway, Big Wins

So, I had this great idea about how to choose the winners of my Big Poetry Giveaway...imagine numbered dog biscuits strewn across the floor, winners chosen by which one George eats first. Amazing, right? I was going to take pictures and document the whole, crazy process. It was going to be so cool.

Alas, that didn't happen. I woke up yesterday, went to work like usual, signed in at my desktop and realized that, yikes, it was the 2nd and I hadn't picked winners! So boring old numbers went into a boring old cardboard box. So sad.

But the good news: two winners were (finally) chosen. Congratulations to Big Nine 7, who gets a copy of A Classic Game of Murder, and Sandy Longhorn, who will receive Mary Oliver's fabulous American Primitive. Thank you, everyone who stopped by and entered. I hope you visit again soon.

By the way, Sandy is now giving all proceeds of her poetry collection Blood Almanac, to tornado disaster relief. Visit her site for more information.

And if you are feeling those post-NPM-blues, consider participating in Deborah Ager's poetic recipe swap.
