What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Restorer WINNER and SECOND RUNNER UP!

Right, well I shall be good and spare you the tale of misery, woe, sinus infections, and Fire Marshall visits to the store cast myself upon your mercies, and most importantly, post who won the lovely book!

ABBIE

with a total, rather astronomical number of  39,000 points scoops up the slot for first place AND the lovely signed copy of the Restorer!

BARIE

with a total, also astronomical number of 31, 000 points scoops up the slot for second place  AND the unannounced second prize a copy of  THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM which is an awesome documentary on one of most spectacular extra-Biblical proofs of the Christmas Story. I watch it several times a year, and am amazed every time I see it. There's a lovely tie-in for Easter too, Barie so don't wait for NEXT Christmas to watch the DVD.

Send your snail-mail addresses to my e-mail if you would please, winners, and I will get them in the mail this week!
