Winners of Leslie Parrish Pseudonym Giveaway

Thanks to Leslie Parrish, whose real name, as I revealed in the contest announcement is Bestselling Powerhouseauthor Withfabulousshoes (or, “Bes”), we have teh winnahs of our ARC giveaway.

The following three entries were picked as winners – hooray!

Shirin Dubbin’s Martha Goose Saint-Helsing

Author of the Tumbling After series, the trying tales of zombie-resurrectionist and private investigators Jack and Jill as they battle dominant vampire [read bloodsucking top] Humpty Dumpty – climaxing ever closer to exposing Nursery Rhymes for the bottom-feeders they are and riding them straight to hell.

Buy all three pulse-pounding volumes: La Petite Mort In The Cathedral, The Agnostic and the Ecstasy and, the triumphant finale, Requiem For An Orgasm

Tina C’s Mary-Katherine O’Conavent writes mysteries set in an all-girls’ Catholic school in South Boston.  The series follows former police detective Maggie Malone, who, after seeing too much on the hard streets, hung up her shield and took her vows.  Sister Margaret (as she is now known) now teaches PE at Saint Agnes Catholic High School and, due to her previous experience and contacts, solves any crimes that place on campus.  Surprisingly for a school full of nuns and teen-aged girls, the high school has an incredibly high crime rate as evidenced by the 10 books in the series.

Leslie says this last one wins the final spot in the winner’s circle because “I really want to read about the Schlamazal Tycoon’s very nice cousin from New Jersey. I think it has Harlequin Presents written all the hell over it!”

Anony Miss’ Shprintze Christianson’s series on love, religious identity, bagels in a manger and travels through ancient Arabia, “Ayatolla Once, Ayatolla Twice, Put That Veil Away,” its sequel “The Shlamazal Tycoon’s Very Nice Cousin from New Jersey,” and the thrilling conclusion, “Shmaltz.” (cover caption – He liked her chicken soup, but would the oily broth be enough to loosen the shackles of love?)

Sarah asks: shackles, or shekels?! HA!

So, folks, email me (sarah @ smartbitchestrashybooks.com) with your mailing address (please put in subject line “Parrish Prize Winner”), and ARCs will be on their way to you. Happy reading and thanks for playing.

    Thanks again to everyone who entered. Those were so much fun to read and it was really hard narrowing it down to my favorites.

    And Tina, this sentence:
    >>Surprisingly for a school full of nuns and teen-aged girls, the high school has an incredibly high crime rate as evidenced by the 10 books in the series. < <

    just cracked me up. Immediately reminded me of Murder She Wrote, when I’d always wonder how this small town could have SO many murder cases to solve.

    And Silver, thank you so much, I just saw the incredible review you wrote for Pitch Black. That was really nice of you and I genuinely appreciate it!

    Ok, so I was doing the nerd thing—googling myself, *shame induced head-hanging*—when I saw this. It’s such a cool surprise, especially when you read the other two winning entries. Thank you!

    I agree with the comments. Both “Surprisingly for a school full of nuns and teen-aged girls, the high school has an incredibly high crime rate as evidenced by the 10 books in the series.” (tres clever) and “The Shlamazal Tycoon’s Very Nice Cousin from New Jersey,” (I’d be all over that in a bookstore) gave me the giggles when I read them.

    Thanks again. You should see the grin on my face!
