Okay, as folks can tell from reading my twitter updates, it is now 23 minutes after midnight and I have been counting entries since 9:00 p.m.
First of all, I am incredibly humbled by all of you guys. If I'd known the contest was going to be this big, I may have come up with a better way to keep track of entries instead of counting them all at the end. If i'd known it was going to be this big, my head probably would've exploded. A huge, huge, huge thank you to everyone who's done this. I know it's a really great honor to have my book cover displayed on your blogs and facebooks and I really, really appreciate that.
So . . . just how many entries were there, you want to know? Well, between this blog and the mirrored version on livejournal, there were 2,892 entries.
Yeah, I know.
I had 64 pages of a word document with everyone's entries. And of course you guys want to know who won. And, um, I sort of want to go to bed. :)
So, without further ado, the winners of the LINGER ARCs (7 U.S./ Canada and 2 international)(if you recognize your username, email me with your address!)
