And the Winner Is (Are)---

Or course I'm talking about the winner of my recent blog tour for River Spirits, the latest mystery in my Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery series.

As the tour continued, I had an good idea who really wanted to win the prize and be a character in my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery.

When I'd responded to the last one to comment on the very last blog of my tour, it was very clear who would have a character using her name:: Linda Thorne.

She left a comment on at least 20 blog posts--sometimes two.

Congratulations, Linda.

There were others who commented on many of the blog posts, but the close follow-up was Nancy Li Petri. I'll give her the opportunity to choose one of the earlier books in the series as a reward for her efforts.

Over 80 people left comments on posts. Some commented on several, just one or two.

I recognized about 60% of the names, others were new to me.

Doing a blog tour is a lot of work--but it's also fun or I wouldn't bother.

Following your book tour was a learning experience. It is something I will need to do when I have my book(s) published. Reading your book at the same time I was following your tour, added to the experience.
Thank you for the contest win of naming one of your future characters after me.
