And the winner is...!

The winner of the "Mother May I?" gift basket is . . .

kerribookwriter!

Congratulations, kerribookwriter! You are the winner of May's gift basket filled with autographed romances by Deanna Raybourn, Catherine Kean, Tera Lynn Childs, Monica McCarty, and me, TJ Bennett, as well as a $20 gift certificate to Barnes & Nobles and the earring and necklace set from BlackDogWhiteDog Jewelry. (This time I'll put a copy of THE PROMISE in the basket.)
You have until June 5, 2009, to contact me at my e-mail, tjb @ tjbennett . com (no spaces). If I don't hear from you by then, I'll select another winner from all eligible participants.

This has been a great contest, folks. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. If you loved this contest but didn't win, I'll have another one starting up on June 3. In the meantime, if you are interested in hearing about events here, be sure to sign up for my newsletter at the top of the page. I'll notify you of contests, new releases, reviews, or booksignings that might be of interest to you.

What's coming up in June, you ask? Well, June is the "Weddings & Beginnings" gift basket giveaway. This month, my host authors will be discussing, you guessed it, weddings and, yes, beginnings. Several of their books actually feature a wedding, so this should be lots of fun. And we’ll have a pretty little gift basket filled with autographed books and a $20 gift card for Target! Well, you know, there is a Target store nearly everywhere, and if you are going to a wedding or graduation ceremony in June (and who isn’t), you can re-gift it, or use it to buy something nice for the giftee. I’ll also be including a beautiful silk floral spray to spruce up your basket or your wedding bouquet.

As usual, guests will be visiting IMHO every Wednesday beginning June 3 and continuing throughout the month. They will place their autographed books in the “Weddings & Beginnings” gift basket for one lucky person to win. And we’ll have a special bonus guest on Monday, June 22, an Eppie award-winning e-published author with a dynamite book you’ve just got to read. She’ll be putting her contact information in the gift basket for the lucky winner to send for a free download of her book.

Of course, I'll also put a signed copy of my historical romance, THE PROMISE (see reviews here) in the basket as well.

So if you didn't win the "Mother May I?" gift basket from my May contest, be sure to visit often and comment for a chance to be the one lucky winner of my "Weddings & Beginnings" gift basket.

And who will be IMHO's guests in June, you ask? I shall tell you:

June 3 Bestselling Christy-winner and two-time RITA® nominated author Deeanne Gist.

June 10 Harlequin Historical author of American set romances and former Golden Heart nominee Kathryn Albright.

June 17 Bestselling author of the High Heels romantic mystery series, Golden Heart winner, and twice-nominated RITA® finalist Gemma Halliday.

June 22 (Bonus Guest), Eppie Award winning paranormal/romantic suspense author Teri Thackston.

June 24 Award winning Medallion Press author and humorist Kathryn Carmichael.

Details of how to win will be posted on my contest page soon. In the meantime, see you Wednesday!

Hey T.J.:
I just popped in to say thanks. I love to find new writers and picked up a copy of Monica McCarty's, Highland Scoundrel, after her guest appearance on your blog. It makes me smile because it's written about the Grant clan and years ago I went to Scotland and researched my heritage. Visited Grant Castle and many others mentioned in the book. She's certainly done her homework, plus it's an interesting romance. I'll comment on her website or blog when I'm finished reading.

Congrats! to the winner of the basket.

Thanks for popping in and letting me know that, Robena! I know the authors always appreciate it when someone knew gets interested in their work.

Kerri has claimed her books, folks! So stay tuned for June's guest hosts and be sure to try again if you didn't win.

And come back in July when I will offer 10 opportunities to win a tote bag full of wonderful books instead of my usual 1! (Plans, I'm making plans...which I'll announce in a bit more detail soon.)

Congratulations to your May winner. Your have a great line-up for June guests. Their books will make a lovely basket. Does being a June bride (37 years ago) give us extra chances?
Have a great month!
