I apologize for the lack of activity around here the last week or so. I’m on a work trip and for some reason I have a hard time writing when I’m not in my own work space. And even worse, I have a hard time laying out blog posts. Who knows? In any case, here are the rest of the winners for Debut Authorpalooza. I want to thank the authors again for their awesome posts, and more importantly, their awesome novels. Thanks also to everyone who participated!
Here are the winners:

Let this be a lesson to you readers! When I run a giveaway that mentions GRAND PRIZE, you should enter. I fully plan to run a Debut Authorpalooza 2013 next year, sooo… if you have a favorite debut author from 2012 let me know and I’ll force them to participate.
