Steve and I solicited the help of our local independent bookseller, Ellen Richmond, owner-operator of the Children’s Book Cellar in Waterville, Maine, to draw the names of the thirty-six winners of the ebook edition of The Dragon Variation, containing Liaden Universe® novels Local Custom, Scout’s Progress, and Conflict of Honors.
Here’s a picture of Ellen, showing off the entries, just before she gets down to the tough job:
Here are the results of her labors; the thirty-six winners:

After Ellen went to the back to soak her wrists, we called on local artist and framemaker Amy Cyrway to draw the blogger winner. Here she is, caught in mid-deed:
The fruit of her labor is: Lissa Davies!

Congratulations to all the winners!
Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter the contest, and to all the news sites, bloggers, individual readers, and friends of the Liaden Universe® who helped to boost the signal!
This was fun! Let’s do it again sometime!
Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
