Lucky Winner of Fried Green Zombies

"A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on you and remains a friend." - Author Unknown

Some lucky soul is winning a friend today. I know this isn’t my ‘usual’ posting day but it is July 1, and time to announce the winner of a signed copy of Fried Green Zombies, by John Allen. I didn’t want to keep you in suspense a moment longer.

I’d show actual pictures of the drawing but it is early in the morning and, well…I look like I just rolled out of bed. It’s not a pretty sight! So I’ll take you through it step by step.

All entries from June 1 to midnight June 30 are in the basket. I have my hand in the basket making sure they are thoroughly stirred. Hey, this is fun. I give them another toss or two.

Now, my husband, an impartial drawee, has reached into the basket and his hand is scurrying around selecting a random entry.

And, the winner is…a drum roll please…

Congratulations Galen Kindley! The chosen entry is from a comment you left on June 10. If you e-mail me ( your mailing address, I will drop your signed copy in the mail.

For those who didn’t win, you can still purchase a copy of Fried Green Zombies on or on John’s website. And in case you missed John Allen’s interviews you can find them here, here and here.

I want to thank all of you who left comments and became followers in June. I really enjoyed hearing from you all and appreciate your support. Because, I had so much fun doing this, I am going to do it again.

For the month of July, when you leave a comment and/or become a follower you’ll be entered for a chance to win a signed copy of Tina Murray’s, A Chance to Say Yes. This is another book, I thoroughly enjoyed. In fact, my blurb made the jacket cover. I interviewed Tina in June of 2008. You can find out more about Tina, A Chance to Say Yes, and the sequel by visiting her lovely new website.

And on a different subject, I’d like to announce that The Ride was reviewed by Linda Fasulo on WGCU Public Media radio. If you’re interested, you can listen to it by going to WGCU. Click on the "Arts" link and then "FL Book Pages."

Thanks for stopping by.

Congrats to Galen!

Jane, I still look like I rolled out of the bed and it's nearly 11. Sighhhh.

Well, I want all to know I worked very hard for this prize. I hired a spam-bot to send in hundreds upon hundreds of nonsensical comments. Of course, these are identical to my in-person, "well thought out" comments. Ergo, if you flood the ballot box, you win. You know my motto: win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat.

Thanks, Jane, I'm humbled and lucky.

Best regards, Galen

You have been busy! Especially for a girl just rolling out of bed.

Congratulations Galen, but I must point out that he admitted to cheating.

And congrats to you, too, Jane, on the radio review of The Ride! That's fabulous.
