we have a winner!

We are pleased to announce that we have a winner in the Iva Honeysuckle Discovers the World giveaway!

After the most recent fiasco, Mr. Random Integer Generator decided he needed some time off in the south of France, where he is, at this very moment, nibbling on Salade Nicoise and sipping L’Estandon. He was only too pleased to pass le bâton to Monsieur Cornelius, who then acted with the utmost discretion to avoid any jealousy in the ranks.

M. Cornelius made sure no one could impersonate Mr. Generator by securing all stray mustaches. No monkey business this time.

After reading Iva Honeysuckle for the fourteenth time, he channeled his favorite main character by cutting a fresh Y-shaped branch from a willow tree. Though this was his first experience with dozing dowsing divining, Cornelius held steady and employed enviable powers of concentration.

After a mere 3 minutes and 24 seconds, his dowsing rod twitched and dipped and pointed to one lucky commenter.

*drum roll, please*

Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of a brand new, signed copy of Iva Honeysuckle Discovers the World by Candice Ransom is:


Please send your snail mail address to: readermail (at) jamakimrattigan (dot) com, so we can get your prize out to you zippity quick!

BIG THANKS to everyone for all your great comments (please have some unsweetened cherry Kool-Aid). We hope you all discover wonderful new worlds in your summer reading!


See, things went swimmingly this time. No monkey business. No monkey business at all.

  1. Jama, I laughed and laughed at the Groucho nose glasses! Those were exactly the ones I imagined!

    Congrats Jane and enjoy the book!


    1. You realize it’s all your fault, don’t you? Now those rascals won’t take their Groucho glasses off. They do fog up when slurping soup . . .


      1. My apologies…soup is normally well-strained through those mustaches! Gazpacho will preclude fogging.


  2. Congratulations, Jane. This book looks like a gem. 🙂 I love how you deliver your winners with such flair and panache, Jama. Only you can make something as drawing a winner sound soooo exciting.
