And the winners are ...

Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter my contest, either by posting my book blog tour schedule on their own blog, or by leaving a comment here. I separated the entries into 2 groups -- those who posted the tour, and those who don't have blogs, but left comments. I'm pleased to announce our 2 winners are --

Kim Kasch and Hilary Pinski

Both will receive an 8x10 framed wildlife photograph taken by me. The photographs feature black bears that have been seen in my yard. Both pictures are different bears. I'll take a picture of the prizes and post it later. Congratulations, ladies! I just need addresses now, so I can ship them out.

ALSO -- Today is the first stop in my book blog tour for A New Job for Dilly. Sherrie Petersen will be our host for today over at her blog, Write About Now. Since today is Father's Day, I imagine things will be a little slow, but hopefully they'll pick up as the week and tour progresses. Click here for the complete tour schedule. To be entered in the drawing to win an autographed copy of A New Job for Dilly, please leave at least FOUR comments throughout the 7 tour stops. I hope you will join us for all 7 days of the tour because we have a lot of fun stuff planned. I've got some very creative hosts helping me with this tour, so you won't want to miss it. If you already have the book and/or your kids have read it, they might want to follow the tour as well. Thanks to all of my hosts for helping me spread the word about my first picture book being out -- A New Job for Dilly!


  1. Congratulations to the winner. I missed it:(

  2. YIPEE!!! I'm so excited. Rena, you take such beautiful photos. And I can't wait to pick up my own little Dilly. I will definitely have a blog review of your book up soon. I'm going to try to make it to B&N or Borders in the next couple of days.

    Now, I'm off to check out your tour. Call me a groupie. ;) It's soooo fun to be a winner!

  3. Thanks, Kim. It's mostly online sales now, but Borders and B&N will be able to order it for you. Just get the ISBN number off my website. Or if you want to get it from me, I have extras and can sign one for you.

    Still waiting for Sherrie to put up the first tour stop. She's on PST, so it's still early for her. Congrats again!

  4. Yay to the winners!

    Your interview over at Write About Now is great. Nice work! : )

  5. Oh I missed out on all the fun while I was away but congrats to those who won.
