Austen Admirers - and the winners are...

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!

Today, it is all about winners.  Last week, Jakki from Leatherbound Reviews hosted the updated list of giveaways for the Austen Admirers Kickstarter Campaign. I'm so grateful to everyone for donating prizes and supporting this effort. Janeites rule! Note: the following winners are from the giveaways only, and does not take away any rewards you may have earned by donating at various levels.

How were the winners chosen? Kickstarter assigns each person a consecutive number based on when they pledged to donate. The numbers ran from #1 - #84. I then went to Random.Org and placed those numbers in the Random Number Generator. The first number chosen that corresponded with the correct pledge level won the prize.

The winners of a set of Jane Austen Royal Stamps, donated by author Cassandra Grafton are:

#45 - Maria Grace
#48 - Debra Anne Watson
#51 - Marianne S. Barstad
#80 - Sally Smith O'Rourke
(Note:  Cassandra is sending these from England, and it may take a bit longer to get them to you!)

The winners of a special edition Pride and Prejudice 200th Anniversary Calendar, donated by artist Janet B. Taylor are:

#36 - Katie Parkin
#12 - Lisa Mieth

The winners of an eBook copy of "Jane and the Ghosts,' donated by author D. W. Wilkin are:

#10 - Carole Pico
#11 - Pam Rothrock Hunter
#16 - Cassandra Grafton

The winners of anthologies, "The Road to Pemberley, and "Pride Revisited," donated by author Tess Quinn are:

#54 - Virginia C. Tharrington

Congratulations to the winners! I'll be working this week contacting the recipients of level prizes. Kickstarter takes 14 days to process donations, so I hope to have everyone's levels to them by the end of the month.

Join me at BooksHugBack.com on Friday for a post tying up all of the loose ends from the Austen Admirers Kickstarter Campaign.  A big thank you to Candy for graciously letting me guest post on her blog, and thank you again for supporting Austen Admirers!
