A few things to take away from this photo:
1. I should really try not to wear my glasses on top of my head all the time.
2. Blondie is still and always more awesome than I will ever be.
3. The lovely Elease was the winner of the RT Expo Elements raffle extravaganza and is now the (hopefully) proud owner of all the Elements swag that has ever existed, signed copies of the first two books, and lots of Elements-inspired goodies.
4. She chose the mountain lion, so the otter is still available. I repeat: the otter is still available.
Yes, the play-along-at-home version of the giveaway is still in effect, partly because I was so distracted by the RT Convention (and subsequent RT Convention recovery) and partly because I’m a doofus who forgot to put an end date on the giveaway.
Signed books, Aidan Brook water bottle, Shifting Selves tote bag, snowflake ice cube trays, black cat greeting cards, hibiscus-scented candles, an Emerald Bay ornament made by local Truckee artists, the ever-elusive Elements charm bracelet, and, of course, the otter.
Same rules apply: giveaway is international, though non-North American peeps will need to be patient. I have a highly efficient giveaway system that involves drawing a slip of paper from a bowl. Said drawing will be witnessed by my cats, who will confirm there was no funny business involved in the process. You can enter up to three times by liking my page on Facebook, following me on Twitter (and posting a subsequent “no I’m not a bot and actually want to win this giveaway” tweet @miamarshalled), and subscribing to the newsletter (via widget in the sidebar, to the right of this post).
And good luck to everyone!
