Congratulations winners, especially you, Debra Marvin!

Tina, thanks for a wonderful WE. The pics were fun, and Carol should definitely get a double award: the creativity award and the DQ (that's "Drama Queen", not to be mistaken with Dairy Queen).

October was such a fun month. I'm looking forward to November. Thank you ladies, for all you do!

Helen Gray said...

Wowee!!! That's a hunkin' buncha prizes!!!

Yay, Debra Marvin! Lucky, lucky, you.

And loved your photo strip Carol!

Debra E. Marvin said...

Wait a minute. What? Me? Did you know my laptop is on its way out, doesn't work half the time and freezes up on me? I didn't even want to hope for such a thing!

Okay, so last year I won the Kindle and now a laptop?
ARe you giving away a new car next year?

well, i'm in shock right now. so let me go and try to sleep and work on Nano and try to wrap my head around this!

you are all so wonderful and God is Good! I lost my job last year and there was no way I could afford a new computer!

I love sharing my birthday month with Seekerville~ Thank you all so very much and to all my fellow Villagers for your kindness. I'm blessed to hang out here with you all!

Ink in the Book said...

Tina Radcliffe said...

You all are pretty amusing.

Someone who shall remain nameless emailed to mention THEY won four weeks in a row.

Was that a complaint?

Talk to God about it.

Julie Steele said...

Such a great time.

Okay, Carol beat us all. A pile of books AND a Kindle? I am wondering how many books are in said Kindle.

Blessings on the year ahead, Seekerville!

Peace, Julie who is back to NaNoWriMo.

Nancy Kimball said...

Oh that was EXCELLENT!!! =)
I (heart) Seekerville!
Those pics were awesome and Carol cracked me up. And I won something this week to boot. YAY!
Now, to lock myself off the internet for two hours and get some word count done...

CONGRATS AGAIN ALL!!! and thanks for another great WE. =)

Ruth Logan Herne said...

Oh my stars, Carol's pictures are the coolest thing since sliced bread, LOL! And I love that she lives a normal life, the life of a busy young mother but takes time to have fun with us, laugh with us, cry with us...

Carol Moncado, you rock. Seriously.

Oh my stars, what a great WE!!!

DEB MARVIN!!!!!! Oh my stars, fellow upstater, congratulations!!!!

Whoot!! Whooot!!!! Whooooot!!!!

AND A SECRET FIRST SALE PARTY....

Oh my stars, I remember those first moments, of getting The Call, of uncertainty, of waiting 'til things were fairly certain before announcing...

OH. YOWZA. WE ARE SO PROUD O' YOUSE GUYS!!!!!!

I'm with Nancy, I've got to get a little work done and then come back whilst you all wipe sleepy sand from your eyes!

What a blessing you guys are, to each and every one of us, and I just want you to know that I absolutely delight in telling folks about you... Your dedication. Your industry, the work ethic. The perseverance.

You bless us. Every day.

Rose said...

First Congratulations to the winners!

I'm excited to win Julie's Christmas book. It's about that time of the year that I start reading Christmas stories.

Love, Love, Love all the pictures of Seekervillager's reading Seeker books.

Ganise said...

Hey...Debra won the Kindle last year.
Who do you know on the inside, Debra?

You definitely need to purchase a lifetime membership to Seekerville.

Piper Huguley said...

Good Morning, Seekerville!

C.E. Hart said...

Congratulations to the winners! And thanks Seekers, for a fun birthday celebration. :)

Love the Drama Queen. lol

Have a lovely weekend, everybody. And happy NaNo-ing to all those participating.

Sandra Leesmith said...

Oh those photos are a scream. I love all of them. So fun to see our Seekerville friends. whoot whoot.

And Carol, The reason we all LOVE LOVE LOVE that series of photos is because we have all been there. The TBR pile. Love it. ROFLOL

Congrats all you winners. We love giving away prizes as you can tell. It is so fun to see and hear about all of your smiles.

And a first party sale. woo hooo. I'm ready. Hey Captain Jack are you coming????

Pam Hillman said...

Wow!!! What a party! And so many prizes. Woo-hoo!

Congrats to the winners...DEBRA!!! A new laptop! Yay girl! Snoopy dancing for you!

Love seeing the pics of everyone reading seeker books. Carol, lol'ing at you. Tina's right. You are such a drama queen! ROFLOL!

But ... Drama Queens are embraced and loved in Seekerville especially if they come bearing chocolate chip cookies!

Pam Hillman said...

Wait, Carol did a photo strip?????

Where????

Carol Moncado said...

LOL! So glad you guys liked those pics!!! I tried to have one of each Seeker being read in the pics but couldn't find my [brand new] Sandra book or any Myra books :(. I know I have at least one Myra book though. Maybe I didn't check my Heartsong stack closely enough.

My now-11yo took the pics ;).

I'd planned like a month long thing - different book, different clothes each day - etc. But instead those were all FINALLY taken last minute...

Now I have to put them all away /sigh/. I *think* I've read almost all of them [I know I'm behind a couple of LI/LIH/LISs].

So, right. Rest of the post ;).

SUPER CONGRATS to all the winners!!!!!

Someone won all four weeks?

I don't *think* I won at all so it balances out ;).

[I'd have to double check though...]

Debra - go you! Two big prizes in two years! I'd ask if they were giving a car away too ;).

Can't wait for the first sale party. I have a possibility in mind but dunno if I'm right.

And now, like Julie, I have to get back to NaNo.

pol said...

Loved seeing the village people pics, congrats to all the winners and what a bunch there was.....
Next week looks great too, I will see ya there.
Happy weekend one and all.....

Julie Lessman said...

Oh, WOW, what a month!! SUPER CONGRATS to all the winners!!

ESPECIALLY DEB MARVIN!!! Holy cow, girl, you paying people to pray and say novenas for you each year in this Seekerville Birthday Bash giveaway??? Gosh, girl, I don't gamble, but even I would be tempted to go out and buy a lottery ticket after this ... ;)

And MEGA hugs to Eva Maria, Virginia an Carol for including my books in their pix -- SOOO cute!!

And, Carol, your photo collection is flat-out ADORABLE and made me laugh out loud, darlin'!!

GREAT WE, TEENSTER!!!

Hugs,
Julie

Susan Anne Mason said...

Good morning. Congrats to all the winners and thank you for the book! A new author to try - how fun!

What an amazing amount of prizes - and an amazing amount of visitors to Seekerville! Wow. And all the countries that visited. Awesome!

Loved all the pics!

Good luck to all the NaNo's! I'm doing the anti-NaNo. LOL. I have to chop 2,000 words from my ms. Every time I delete a scene, I think of a new scene that needs to go in. Getting there though!

Have a great weekend!

Cheers,
Sue

Donna said...

Debra, wow! Sounds like you really needed that laptop! Congratulations!

Carol, too cute! Please tell your 11 yr old how impressed we all are of his/her photography skills.

October was so much fun! Thank you, ladies for all the hard work and wonderful prizes!

Great WE. Thanks Tina. I enjoyed the NaNoWriMo tips. Especially the Lulu Title scorer. Happy NaNoIng!

Tina Radcliffe said...

Debra won the Kindle LAST year. A weekly prize. Last year our big prize was a NetBook and the winner was Patty Wysong.

Nancy C said...

Oh that is so not fair! We have to wait for Tuesday to find out who the surprise first sale party is for? This is a lesson in patience, isn't it? Sigh.

Debra! "Congratulations" seems a puny word for such a super prize ... and apparently a much-needed one, too. Yeehaw!

Melanie, thank you for the IOU ... I look forward to collecting :-)

Ten countries and 33,000 'hits' a day? Seeker generosity reaches wide and often. Congrats, ladies.

Congrats to ALL those winners, too.

I bookmarked the link about writing an e-book in 30 days. Parts of it are a good guide for any writing project. And the next time I feel a bout of 'poor me' approaching (you know ... a judge who didn't recognize my brilliant writing, for example) I will reread Liz Kreger's post. What a reminder to focus on the positive.

Carol, a fun series of photos. I'd offer to help you reshelve all those books but ... :-)

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend.

Nancy C

Anonymous said...

Okay, okay, that's 33,000 page views a MONTH. I knew that. I was just seeing if anyone was paying attention. Ahem.

Nancy C

Kav said...

Thanks for the great birthday bash and your generosity, Seekerville. When they publish the next edition of the Oxford Dictionary the definition of Generous is going to read "Seekerville." :-)

Excited for the week coming up too. Uber excited for Tuesday 'cause I love surprises and I'm dying to know who it's about! And Wednesday because I loved No Safe Harbor and who can resist an author who speaks dog (or daschund)?! Not me!

Kav said...

Joanne Sher said...

I was gonna say that Pepper's picture was my fave - until I got to the Carol montage!! Love you BOTH.

What a FABULOUS month it was - and this week looks AMAZING. Can hardly wait!

Woowoo to ALL the winners!

Vince said...

A Wonderful WE – As Always!

In the spirit of brevity, I want to offer my condolences to the one person who didn’t win anything this last month! If there was one.

Pictures: They Say More Than Words!

I just love Carol’s depiction of the first romance OD ever recorded as it happened. If it was a video it would now be going viral. It’s a virtual avalanche of HEAs. The side effect of too much happiness.

I also think it is inspirational how Eva Maria shows us how romance can improve our posture. I’ve heard of wearing your heart on your sleeve but not of carrying your TBR pile on your head. (Try that with ebooks!)

Oh, and Pepper’s expression: does the ‘cat who ate the canary’ come to mind? I know that book and even that page: it’s where we learn for the first time that my favorite character was found dead. (Mary shoots people but Ruth just killed a dog!!! OMG…I couldn’t get to sleep last night.)

And Virginia has taken ‘framing a story’ to a new level. And to think it’s a book I’m in. I'm going to order a pile of them to give as Christmas gifts! : )

And then there’s Jennifer who is smiling with Tina’s books and I’d be smiling, too. Look at that bargain price! Where do you buy your books!

TINA: Thanks for the link to my guest appearance on “My Story My Way”. People should know that they are picking on Ruth over there. Friends might want to visit and give Ruth some support.

Reading this was so much fun I forgot for a few minutes that I am already behind in my NaNo quotas. (Back to work.)

Vince

Pepper said...

Vince! You are sUCH a mind-reader!!!
:-)

Pepper said...

LOVED Eva Marie's picture! SO CUTE!!!

Mary Connealy said...

Carol, sorry about the avalanche getting you there in the last picture. LOL
I'm sending a St. Bernard to save you RIGHT NOW with a little whiskey keg around it's neck.

Mary Connealy said...

CAROL!!!! You didn't win all month???
AN INJUSTICE HAS BEEN DONE!!!!

I'm emailing you right now. I'll send you a copy of Candlelight Christmas.

(it's an ebook, so you shouldn't be overly buried by it, girl)

Casey said...

ROFLOL!!

Carol's pics had me cracking up. Oh that is just TOO FUNNY!

Pat Jeanne Davis said...

Congratulations to all the winners especially Debra. Love the pics. An exciting birthday month. thank you, Tina, for contest update and weekend edition. More wonderful blogs ahead next week.
Pat

Ruth Ann Dell said...

Congratulations to all the winners!

Thank you Seekerville and your guests for a wonderful month. I'll definitely be nominating Seekerville for the Writer's Digest Best 101 Websites.

Please add South Africa to your list of stats- I did leave several commnents during the month.

Donna said...

I am looking forward to Tuesday!
You all are awfully good at keeping secrets! If I ever get published I'm going to have to get someone to hogtie me and duct tape my fingers! : P

Carol Moncado said...

Mary - I definitely feel like a winner now!!! :D

I did see my name in one Weekend Edition and that was for the Read Me Contest :D. That'll work!

I went back to make sure it wasn't just my headache talking and it wasn't. I did win Glynna's Look Alike Lawman at the end of September... ;) I should probably email Tina about that because I don't think I did...

Renee (SteelerGirl83) said...

Bahaha Carol I absolutely love your pics! Between us two gals alone we could probably fill a library with Seeker books. :-)

Congrats to Debra and all the winners (SQUEE! I'm excited I won Fairest Beauty!) enjoy all your wonderful prizes! Thank you again Seekers for always being so kind and generous. xoxoxoxo

Kav said...

I have a downloading Kindle question that maybe someone can help me with. Okay -- really, I have two downloading kindle questions.

I'm wanting to download kindle for pc books. When I click on the book I want though, I keep getting the option to download the kindle to pc program. I've done that but whenever I try to download a book (so far I've only tried free ones as an experiment) I only get the option to download the actual kindle to pc program. Never the book. What am I doing wrong?

Oh - and if I want to do a giveaway of an ebook -- how do I do that?

Carol Moncado said...

Kav - download the program. Once you have the program attached to your account, it'll give you the option of where to send it [if you have more than one location - like a phone or multiple computers etc]. Or you can pick from the program what you want to download to your computer. For a giveaway, you have to have the account email for the person you're sending it to and then there's a 'send as gift' option on the page. The person on the other end has to 'accept gift' via email then it'll load into their account.

Hope that helps :).

Cindy W. said...

Congratulations to all the winners this month. It has been so much fun! Thank you Seekers for sharing this special time with all of us. We are all winners every day as you bring us words of wisdom. Thank you so very much. I always get inspired when I stop by here.

Smiles & Blessings to you all!

Cindy W.

Myra Johnson said...

What a great month-long birthday party we've had!!! Congrats to DEBRA for being our grand prize winner, and thanks to everyone for helping us celebrate!

Love-love-love the Seekervillager pix with Seeker books!!! Carol, yours are so fun!

I can't believe I get to be a part of this great group!!! You are all amazing!!!

Annie Rains said...

Congrats to all the winners! Love the pictures! And Carol, not only did you final in the READ ME contest, but you won the picture award, too, right? That is if you can climb out from under that mountain of books to claim it :)

Natalie Monk said...

Good gravy! What a bunch of prizes!!! Nowhere but Seekervile could you find such a party!

EEEEIIKK!!! Saw my name on a copy of a Melanie Dickerson book! Thank you!!! So excited! (!) There. Had to add at least one more. :P


! (or two)

Lots of people Nano-ing I see. Happy writing! Thank you for the tips, Tina!! Great WE!

Tina Radcliffe said...

That's exactly right Carol Diva.

You have to download the program to your puter first.

For a gift you just click the gift option.

Tina Radcliffe said...

Ruth Ann Dell! Isn't it odd that Blogger didn't pick up that you were posting from South Africa?


Are you able to order from Amazon in South Africa?

Carol Moncado said...

Annie - you're right, I did final. :D

Walt, Jennifer, Pepper, Eva and Virginia were the Villager winners [at least as I read it].

I think Tina took pity on me and the obvious lack-of-meaningful-life-outside-Seekerville apparent with those pictures ;).

Christina said...

LOL, Carol! I'm not sure she took pity on you, I think you won top prize with that montage.

Jill Weatherholt said...

Congratulations to all of the winners, especially the big winner, Debra! Yay!!! Congrats to you, Cindy Wilson. :) Thank you for an exciting month. This is why Seekerville will make Writer's Digest Best 101 Websites for Writers ~ it should be at the top!

Melanie Dickerson said...

I'm so excited Deb Marvin won the laptop!!! How cool. :-)
And I won a gift card! Yay me! :-)
Congrats to all the winners!

KC Frantzen and May the K9 Spy said...

WOWWWEEEE - look at all the winners!
congratulations!

Love the Seekervillagers too - What fun this has been.
Just grand!

My 2nd book is now off to press, due in around Thanksgiving. YAY!
Hopefully I can focus on a few more things now. Wshew.

Just finished a show today - sold some books, met some fans (some who were jumping up and down inquring after book 2 - THAT was fun!) - all is well.

bye for now!

Tina Radcliffe said...

Oh, you're all winners. No matter what.

CatMom said...

WOW!! Awesome Weekend Edition Tina, and CONGRATS to all the winners!!

Hugs, Patti Jo

Debra E. Marvin said...

Thank you all for sharing in my snoopy dancing! I have been out all day and appreciate the notes. I'm feeling very blessed indeed!

Cara Lynn James said...

Love all the pictures! Thanks for coming to Seekerville's 5th birthday bash. It would be lonely without all of you!

Tina, thanks for the articles. They're so helpful. I always wonder how you have time to keep up with things.

Eva Maria Hamilton said...

I won! Yay! Thank you Seekerville!

And congratulations to all the winners! I just loved seeing everyone's photos!! And as always, the comments are too funny!

Hope everyone has a great writing weekend!

Mary Cline said...

I didn't expect to win since I hardly commented but I just checked back and I won Mary Curry's book Stealing Jake on week three. Thank you sososososo much!

Tina Radcliffe said...

I am thinking you mean Pam Hillman's book, Mary.

But Mary Curry is probably one of our next first sales.

Debby Giusti said...

Congrats to all our winners.

Thank you, dear Seekerville friends, for being with us this month! Hasn't it been a fun party? Without you, we wouldn't have had nearly as much to celebrate!

Love you all!
Hugs!

Jamie Adams said...

Congratulations to all the winners! What a great birthday party, thanks Seekerville.

Carrie Fancett Pagels said...

SEEKERVILLE--thanks so much for the WONDERFUL Harry and David package--am still enjoying the chocolate cherries which I have hidden and the crackers, which I let the boys have, lol! One yummy pear left! My daughter Cassandra is ECSTATIC over the Keurig K-Cups and the assortment coffee pack and I posted a pic on FB tonight! Thanks so much and many blessings!
