And the winner is ...

I've taken all the names of those who entered my book giveaway and put them in a hat. Well, it was more like a bowl because I'm just not a hat person. I look silly in hats. Anyway, the winner is ...

Congratulations, Niki! I know you said not to worry about the contest because of shipping to New Zealand, but I was a rebel and entered you anyway. I actually picked your name twice. The first time was when I was putting the names into the bowl and yours got stuck to my finger. I didn't know if I should count that, so I mixed them all up again really good and picked yours again. So -- it was meant to be! I hope you will enjoy Lemur Troops & Critter Groups. Please tell your friends about the book. I'm honored to be sending it all the way to New Zealand!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter. I appreciate all the entries as well as those of you who were able to post my book information on your blogs. I am so blessed to have such great friends as well as be working with three great illustrators. Nikki Shoemaker is doing the Critter Series and seems to be having a lot of fun with it. Lisa Oakman is working on the other two books in the Dilly series. Stephen Macquignon has illustrated my next book, The Marshmallow Man, which is due to come out next. I don't have a release date yet, but I'm really looking forward to this book. Congratulations again, Niki, and thanks to everyone who entered!


  1. Congrats to Niki!!! It was fun to play along.

  2. Yea Niki! And Rena...I hear you're going to have a Critter visit. Won't THAT be a blast?!

  3. This is wonderful Rena. Thank you so much. :o)) The kids were jumping up and down with excitement. (I was too! hehe) Will send an email later today. I have my 'gaggle' of geese leaving soon :o( H.G has put his foot down and said some feathers have to go. Sadly I had to choose the geese.

    Thanks again :o)

  4. Congrats to Nikki!

    P.S. I think you'd look great in a hat!
