Debut Authorpalooza Winners Part Two

I apologize for the lack of activity around here the last week or so. I'm on a work trip and for some reason I have a hard time writing when I'm not in my own work space. And even worse, I have a hard time laying out blog posts. Who knows? In any case, here are the rest of the winners for Debut Authorpalooza. I want to thank the authors again for their awesome posts, and more importantly, their awesome novels. Thanks also to everyone who participated!

Here are the winners:

Miserere: An Autumn Tale by Teresa Frohock



Mieneke van der Salm, Netherlands


The Emperor's Knife by Mazarkis Williams



Mia C., Elmhurst, New York
Ken F., Flagstaff, Arizona


The Winds of Khalakovo and The Straits of Galahesh 

by Bradley P. Beaulieu



Sandino S., Bulgaria


The Alchemist of Souls by Anne Lyle



Doug S., Chandler, Arizona
Elias C., Spain


GRAND PRIZE WINNER


Sharon R., Davenport, Iowa

I'm sure Sharon is wondering what she's won exactly. I'm going to try to summarize what she'll receive. I reserve the right for it to be incomplete.

Signed Hardcover of King of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
Signed ARC of Rapture by Kameron Hurley
Signed ARC of Tainted City by Courtney Schafer
Signed ARC or Finished Copy of Knifesworn by Mazarkis Williams
Signed copy of Among Thieves by Douglas Hulick
ARC of Merchant of Dreams by Anne Lyle
6,700 word critique of any story by Teresa Frohock
Signed copy of and Blues Skies from Pain by Stina Leicht
Signed copy of Trinity Rising by Elspeth Cooper
Signed copy of something by Bradley P. Beaulieu (I can't find the e-mail!)

and.....

I'm sending her a dozen books from my own shelves, just because.

Let this be a lesson to you readers! When I run a giveaway that mentions GRAND PRIZE, you should enter. I fully plan to run a Debut Authorpalooza 2013 next year, sooo... if you have a favorite debut author from 2012 let me know and I'll force them to participate.

AH, I almost screamed at work, haha. (In a library; slightly frowned upon.) Thank you so much!

Also, I'd like to strongly suggest Anthony Ryan for next year's Debut Authorpalooza.

And good thing Sharon works in a library - she'll need one!

I'm just about finished with that book (~97%) and I absolutely loved it. Just an amazing epic fantasy novel. Also, congrats!
