ARC Winners!

Sugar Creek: Destiny Book 2Thanks to everyone who entered the Sugar Creek ARC contest. It was so exciting to see the outpouring of interest and support in email and on Facebook, Goodreads, and Twitter. In fact, we had so many more entries than we anticipated that we managed to rustle up a couple extra ARCs so we could give away FOUR books instead of two. Congratulations to our randomly drawn winners: JoJosBookCorner KarLynP Kim Bales Stella Ex Libris

Thanks again to all the other entrants and feel free to console yourselves by rereading the excerpt on the Sugar Creek page. Thankfully, it's only a few more weeks until everyone will be able to enjoy the book - mark your calendars (or sign up for a book release reminder) for May 25th!
