Some winners, some news, and another contest

Sid the Car would like to send his thanks to you all for enteruing the Valentine's Day Contest. He found there were a satisfactory number of entries and he was happy with the task of choosing the winners. In the end there were some more answers from UK readers so he had plenty to choose from there too.

So to announce some winners - I have to wait for one last winner as you'll see in a moment.
So far the winners are:
Jacqueline Lewis from London who wins a book of vouchers - they're on their way to you Jacqueline

Jane Cheung from New York who wins a calendar, centenary bookmark and a copy of The Greek Tycoon's Unwilling Wife which is in the mail today
Doaa Younis -
Now there's where I'm waiting to hear . I suspect that Doaa is not in the UK, but she might be so I have to wait until I hear from her and get her mailing adress to be sure. The I can get Sid back to work on picking the last winner when I know if he's picking from the UK entries or the international ones.
Then I can contact the final winner and announce it here.
The question for this contest was - which book has it's cover on the November page of the Centenary Calendar?
And the answer, as so many of you got right - is No Holding Back which was published in the UK in 1995 and in America in 1997
Now for the news - I have some great news about my book - The 12 Point Guide To Writing Romance. (well - it's great news for me! If you've been looking for a copy, it might not be quite so great for you.)
I heard from my publisher last week and this book is now officially SOLD OUT. He shipped the very last copies from the wharehouse and there are none left. There might be some around on or B&N .com - but not many! ( A quick check shows me that has some in stock - but I don't know how many. is out of stock.

But if you want a chance to win a copy of this book, I gave Lee Hyat two copies of it to offer as a prize and she has just set up a contest over on My Tote Bag Contest Page
There's one simple question to answer and you could be in the running to win this award winning guide to writing romance.

NB Please send your entries to Lee ( marking your entry Kate Walker Contest - not to me as I'm not handling this contest myself.
I am still accepting entries for the Here Come the Grooms Contest though, and that is still open until the end of the month - the winners will be selected on March 1st. Details can be found here

Finally, seeing as people are always talking about the Modern/Presents titles and often laugh at them, here's the 2008 shortlist for the Bookseller/Diagram Prize for the Oddest Title of the Year announced yesterday.
The titles are:
Are Women Human? And Other International Dialogues;
How to Write a How to Write Book;
Cheese Problems Solved;
If You Want Closure in Your Relationships, Start With Your Legs;
People Who Mattered in Southend and Beyond: From King Canute to Dr Feelgood
I Was Tortured by the Pygmy Love Queen.
Perhaps I should buy How To Write a How To Write Book now that I have to work on the 2nd edition of the 12 Point Guide! The comments on Amazon make it sound like a lot of fun.
