What a fantastic turnout for Spank or Treat 2013! Thank you to the authors, ambassadors, readers, and the publishers and companies who sponsored the event. Each time we do one of these activities, we get to meet new friends and form new connections. I also hear that book sales have spiked over the weekend, so apparently we’ve all been very
naughty busy enjoying the wealth and diversity of talent.
Who knew spanking fiction could be so fun?
For my individual blog contest, I chose three winners. One from all of the participants who commented on my blog, one for an ambassador, and one for a participating author. Each recipient will get to choose one book from my backlist that includes The Vengeance of Mrs. Claus, Desire in Any Language, Editorial Board, The Way Home, Lighting the Way, Coming to Terms, and Love’s Reprise.
Participating author: Casey McKay
Ambassador: Kelly Adams
Congratulations to all of you! Please email me, subject line “Spank or Treat prize,” and tell me which book you would like to receive. Thank you so much for making this event great.
For the grand prizes, we have some wonderful treats. The generosity of Blushing, LazyDay, Decadent, Stormy, Blondie’s Place, and Discipline and Desire is truly stunning. All participants received up to 22 entries toward the prize drawing (1 per comment on each author’s blog, 3 for VIP status, 5 for completion, and 1 for ambassadorship). All prize winners were randomly chosen from this pool.
Wizards in Publishing, a consultation service owned by Kate Richards and Valerie Mann, offered a pre-publication consultation for an author’s manuscript of up to 15K. The lucky winner of this prize is none other than Normandie Alleman! Best of luck in your writing and publishing, Normandie! I hope you’ll enjoy your prize.
Decadent Publishing offered an ebook bundle, details determined after the prize is awarded. Our very own Rogue, aka the wielder of the paddle, will get to enjoy some new spicy books…and perhaps get some new ideas. 🙂
Discipline and Desire, a subscription site that offers a wealth of M/F spanking stories, offered a six-month membership. Our lucky winner is none other than Autumn who delighted us with her fan fiction last week. Now you’ll get some new ideas for your spanking fun!
Blondie’s Paddles, a husband-and-wife online shop, offered a custom-made paddle to Mary McCoy! Blondie will talk with you to help decide what kind of paddle you would like.
Stormy Nights, a publisher of spanking fiction, offered a $20 Amazon gift certificate to Spanking101, our loyal fan of all things spanking. Many happy spanking stories lie in your future!
Blushing Books, one of the oldest publishers of spanking fiction, offered a $50 gift certificate to their online bookstore. The lucky winner is Angieia Kroemer. If you don’t have a Blushing account yet, let Blushing know and they will help you set it up.
LazyDay Publishing, a publisher that takes all genres and pairings of spanking fiction, offered a $100 gift certificate to their online bookstore. Traveling Gal will have the pleasure of browsing through the book listings. M/F, F/F, M/M…it’s all there!
Blushing Books also donated an ereader, to be chosen by the winner between a Kindle Fire and Nook HD. This is a fabulous prize and will make it easier for TL Bucko to download all of the free spanking stories available..Congratulations, everyone! You will be contacted about the details of your prize, so please respond promptly. If you do not respond by Sunday, a new winner will be chosen for your prize.
All of our participants were wonderful. Authors have been excited to read your feedback and hear your engagement with the stories. The “best of the best” comments will be featured next week on Wednesday, right here at Governing Ana. We had some insightful, witty, and laugh-out-loud comments that have been re-read and treasured by the authors.
Don’t forget to come back for the Advent Calendar from December 1st to December 25th! Look for details in a post mid-November.
Also, save the date for Love Spanks 2014! February 7-9 will be a weekend filled with spanky stories, more prizes, and fun!
