A week ago, we announced a new book giveaway contest, the prizes being four copies of Delta Blues, an anthology of short stories--all of them rooted in America’s Mississippi Delta region--that was edited by Carolyn Haines. To be entered in that competition, Rap Sheet readers had only to send us an e-mail note containing their snail-mail addresses.
Well, the response was quick and impressive. We received more than 80 entries from across the United States. And today we bring you the names of the four winners, chosen at random. They are:
• Seth Forstater of Excelsior, Minnesota
• Deanna Stillings of Carlisle, Massachusetts
• Jenni Oglesby of Louisville, Kentucky
• Stan Lanier of Waycross, Georgia
Congratulations to these Rap Sheet readers. Copies of Delta Blues should be sent to you right away, directly from publisher Tyrus Books.
And if you didn’t win a free book this time around, don’t fret: We’ll have another such competition coming up very soon.
