Best of 2012 Giveaway - Winner Annoucement!

The Best of 2012 Giveaway is over and it is time to see which book you all voted for! Also one lucky person has won a copy of the winning book! Make sure you check the widget below to see if your name has been picked!

Actually, scratch that! I just saw the results and seeing as TWO books won I am going to pick TWO winners! So check for your name to see if you are one of the winners and choose one of the winning books as your prize!

A huge thanks to everyone who voted and entered! I hope you will all come back for more monthly giveaways! Also make sure you check the sidebar ---> for all the current author contests that are running!

So now onto the results!

Bloodstone by Nancy Holzner came in last! I hope this means you have all read it already! This is a great series and I expected it to get more than 1% of the vote.

Three books all got a score of 4%. I guess all of these books have already been bought and loved? Croak by Gina Damico, Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones and Evil Dark by Justin Gustainis are amazing reads and if you haven't tried them yet I hope you will!

6% gets Care & Feeding of Stray Vampires by Molly Harper the next place in the results. Molly Harper is a funny writer and I love her style. Make sure you check her books out if you are in the mood for a few giggles.

Also another book managed 6%! Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig, has by far, one of the most beautiful covers ever. With 6% of the vote it doesn't look like you guys wanted it that bad. Hopefully it is on a lot of wishlists!

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues by Diana Rowland is an absolute must read! Only 7% of you wanted a copy! Once again I hope it is because you all read this one already!

Next in joint third place, with 10% of the votes each, are two well known authors. 13 by Kelley Armstrong marked the end of the Women of the Otherworld Series and Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris sees the Sookie Stackhouse series ready to come to an end. Must reads!

Precinct 13 by Tate Hallaway is the last book from the author. With no new contracts it looks like there will be no sequel to this spectacular book. 12% wasn't enough to win the Best of 2012 Giveaway but it does mean second place!

So that means we have a joint first place! Two books made it to the top of the vote! Congratulations to :

Angel's Ink by Jocelynn Drake


Widow's Web by Jennifer Estep
