A big THANK YOU from Scott Nicholson, Aiden James, H.T. Night, and J.R. Rain.for making the Epic Kindle Giveaway such a huge success! We are still tallying downloads and book blogger contest entries, but because you guys blew the Epic Kindle Giveaway out of the sky when we expected it to be a small event, we went Mega-Epic on our budget as well, doubling it to give out $400 as well as the EIGHT FREE KINDLE FIRES. As you guys grew and showed your support, we dug deeper to match your awesomeness, and we are truly humbled and grateful.
Eight Kindle Fire winners will be announced here Tuesday after selection using random.org by the Watauga County (NC) Public Library staff. We will make every reasonable effort to contact the winners, but it is your responsibility to claim your prize within three days or it will be awarded to runner-ups.
