The Randomness of random

Congratulations to Dale Harcombe WINNER of a Sally Odgers e-book for her comment on Bushland Lullaby.

It’s an odd juxtaposition awarding Dale the prize considering I won a like e-book for posting a comment on Dale’s post with Sally on her  Read and Write with Dale blog. Still I can assure that there has been no nepotism or favouritism. In fact, I wondered how to draw the winner and was about to pull names from a hat (really a coffee cup) when I surfed the net for more inventive ideas and chanced across the website. You simply input the number of entries i.e. comments between one and however many and it randomly selects your winner. Number three was Dale’s comment and VOILA… she wins one of Sally’s e-books on either Writing a Picture Book Text; Finding Farholt Or Writing Metrical Verse. 

For the record, I’m excited to have won Sally’s writing picture book ebook. I love the picture book format, and have had a couple published, but I do struggle with the economy of words.

Please let me know in a comment, Dale, which book you’d like for your prize and it will be on its way instantly. Such is a the bonus in ebook delivery. No waiting for the printing, packing, posting.
