Winner of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope and Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey

Sorry for this delayed announcement.

Since starting National Novel Writing Month I haven't posted on my blog or visited other blogs as often as I'd like.

Thanks to everyone who left comments for the drawing for Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope and Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey, featuring Alice Muschany's true story "Hats Off to Betty with Love."

Special thanks to Alice for her generous donation of the book.

The winner is  BOOKIE

So, if you will send me an e-mail at dvolkenannt (at) (please replace the (at) with the at sign--I didn't want to put my entire e-mail address so I don't get Viagra ads). Be sure to include your snail mail address so I can mail the book to you next week.

Congratulations, Bookie, and thanks again to everyone else.

Now, back to my novel-in-progress. I hope to post my word count early next week.


  1. Congratulations to Bookie! Since you obviously haven't quit NaNo yet, you're already doing better than I usually do. Best of luck!

  2. Thanks, Tammy. I'm hanging in there. Taking small breaks for Facebook and visiting blogs seems to help when I get stuck.

  3. Congrats to Bookie on her win. And good luck to you with NaNo!

  4. Thanks, Donna, (and Alice) will do!

  5. Congrats to Bookie!

    Keep on plugging away, Donna. NaNo is like running a marathon...painful along the way, but it feels so good when you cross the finish line!

  6. Congrats to Bookie - I'm sure she'll enjoy Alice's story.
