It's been a long and hard road, friends and supporters.
Yesterday, with no particular thought behind it, I announced a contest on Facebook to help keep buzz growing for my upcoming gay nightlife novel, Gulliver Travels (coming out May 17!).
The response was MASSIVE, with over 200 total responses across all the places I posted it. Needless to say, my original plan to give THREE prizes quickly proved silly.
So I changed it up, and increased the prizes.
There are NINE total prizes (and winners).
FOUR GRAND PRIZE WINNERS will be turned into characters IN the story. Immortalized within the pages of this hopefully soon-to-be-best-seller. They, of course, will also receive an uber-advanced digital copy of the book, over a month and a half before it comes out for sale.
FIVE RUNNERS UP will also receive the uber-advanced digital copy. I also gave them a briefer, cameo appearance in the book. Not as major as the grand prize winners... but they're still in there!
It was tough to pick the winners (mostly because I don't own a hat and had to find SOMEWHERE to throw the names to randomly draw from).
But HERE THEY ARE:
GRAND PRIZE WINNERS:
AND THE RUNNERS-UP
Note: While you didn't become full characters, I've given you EACH a cameo in the book... keep an eye out for yourselves :)

Thanks to EVERYONE for participating! As soon as I get your emails, I'll send you the uber-advanced digital copy of the book, complete with you in a starring or cameo role!
And remember: GULLIVER TRAVELS comes out May 17... tell EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
