Congrats to my YAmazing and MGnificent winners!!

I want to thank everybody who entered the YAmazing Race, as well as my secondary contest for a Powells.com giftcard. Thank you for your cover love, for complimenting my laser-eyed iguanas (because if you're going to blog, you might as well have a little fun with it, right?), and for your interest in VENOM. It's so weird, guys. I have written three other manuscripts since I finished VENOM, so she was feeling far away, like a kid who left home and went out in the world on her own. Thank you for bringing her back to me :)

The YAmazing Race winners will be announced on the Apocalypsies blog on 5/9/12, but I promised to announce today, and I am a woman of my word, so I fired up the random-generator-picker-thingie and:

1st place:  Samandlysander--you have won a $30.00 e-giftcard!

2nd place: Hwa Sun--you have won a $20.00 e-giftcard!

CONGRATZ to my winners!!!!!!! But if you didn't win, no worries. I have, like, this disease where I love to give stuff away. I would totally be one of those penniliess Lotto winners you hear about on the news if I ever won the lottery. But I wouldn't give it to con artists and greedy people. I'd give it to charities and cool people like YOU, so that's okay, right? Right??? *convinces self*

Anyway, with that in mind, another round of

the internet's most excellent virtual scavenger hunt will be starting soon. As always, the assistants and I know you have a choice with blog contests, and we thank you for choosing Fiona Paul Books. Keep reading, and keep spreading your happiness around the web. We writers, bloggers, humans, (even my pet laser-eyed iguanas) appreciate it, even if we don't always remember to say so.

Muchas gracias from me and my eyeballz of deth.


  1. Congrats to the winners! :D You get save $15 of that to buy Venom in October. ;)

    Ah! I love your posts and this time I will sacrifice food, sleep, and sanity to win WITWIV. Thanks for the laser-eyed iguanas! More pictures, please? Don't worry, Fiona! I am greedy (and generous sometimes) so I guess none of that lotto money will be mine, right? :D

  2. M-

    You are the cutest. You can have 10 dollars of my Lotto money, but only if you give 5 bucks to charity. *makes note to buy Lotto ticket*

    No need to sacrifice food, sleep, or sanity! Plenty of books to read between now and October. For example, I just got a shiny, untouched copy of Insurgent from the library.

  3. I promise! :) I'll probably sacrifice sleep though ...and I know. I have been reading book after book lately. Seems like I'm on roll :D And LUCKY! I'm still waiting for my copy. Happy reading!! :)
