And the winner is....
Congratulations, Rinah!! Your name was randomly selected from among the 77 entries I received for the contest.
I just sent you an email requesting your mailing address, and how you would like Diana to inscribe your copy of the 20th Anniversary Edition. Please send me an email back as soon as possible so I can put the order in to the Poisoned Pen bookstore in Arizona.
Many, many thanks to all of you who took the time to send in contest entries!! I know that wasn't easy!
I have begun putting the collection of essays together. It's a substantial collection, 77 individual essays (well, 78, counting my own contribution <g>), covering more than 60 pages. Some of them are funny, some are moving, but all of them are heartfelt, and I'm sure that Diana will appreciate your stories very much. (I certainly do!)
I received essays from fans all over the world, including countries as far away as Latvia, Finland, and Australia.
I plan to put the package in the mail to Diana in the next few days. She is traveling at the moment and won't be back home until July 10, so I don't expect to hear her reaction until then.
