alternative hero winners!

For the second half of December, we held a contest with Knopf to give away copies of Tim Thornton‘s The Alternative Hero. Tim had been kind enough to make us a mixtape, and it serves as a companion to the book. People could enter by commenting and/or retweeting contest messages on Twitter. Here are the four lucky winners!

For Twitter, each RT got an entry, competing for one book. I put all the retweets in a list, then randomized it at www.random.org. Then, the winner was picked using the integer generator:

Congrats, @tylerlawman!

At M|H, each individual comment got an entry. They too went in a list and got randomized, then I had the integer generator pick three:

Hooray for Rick, Lindsay, and Matt!

To sweeten the deal, I promised one winner a yet-to-be-posted mixtape. Same deal, random list, integer winner:

Lindsay is our grand prize winner!

I’ll be contacting winners to coordinate getting them their prizes. Thanks to all who entered, and be sure to check out The Alternative Hero even if you didn’t win!
