And the winner of the Christmas-theme tote is...

JANE L!! (Please note there was more than one Jane commenting on the site this month; this is JANE L.)

JANE L, you are the winner of December's tote filled with autographed books from all of this month's guest, a copy of my historical romance THE LEGACY, and the $20 gift certificate from! JANE L., you must contact me at my e-mail tjb @ tjbennett DOT com in order to claim your prize by December 31, 2009 (that's a shorter deadline, so don't delay) or I will have to give the prize to another eligible winner.

Well, this has been a great run, folks. We've had some amazing guests on this year--authors I have admired and enjoyed getting to know as much as you have, and had special events such as our summer RITA Extravaganza whereby nearly 50 RITA nominees gave away their books on my blog and told us why they were happy to be nominated for this prestigious award. We also gave away a big basket of looove and found out what our guest authors were thankful for this year.

I hope in the near future to bring you other special events here at IMHO, but the weekly Wednesday guest blogs are going on indefinite hiatus. I'll still introduce you to great authors you should know on an occasional basis, so be sure to bookmark this site, become a follower of the blog, and/or sign up for my newsletter if you want to be in the know and get a chance to win free books and other prizes. And this summer, I plan to travel to the RWA national conference (God willing and the creek don't rise) so you'll get to be a part of the action there. I know I'll meet plenty of wonderful authors and get great books that I can pass along to you as random freebies, hint hint.

In the meantime, I'm going to be focusing on a few other areas of my life that are demanding attention now, and I hope to be able to get back to the regular guest author posts soon. Feel free to browse the archives beginning with Jan 2009 to discover new authors you should know, and check back here periodically to see what's happening.

For now, I'll say, "So Long, Farewell"....
