Congratulations Joe-anne Corwin!

Winner of the great give-away contest week 8, including the Witch’s series audio books I and II.

Check your Facebook messages, Joe-anne, for codes and instructions on how to redeem your free Books.

For everyone else, I just want to say thanks for participated in the 8 drawings held this summer on Books by Dana E. Donovan. I’m sorry you all couldn’t win, but you will still have a chance later this fall when book three in the Detective Marcella series comes out.

Actor/Producer Eric A. Shelman is nearly finished narrating it now, so it won’t be long.

For those who hope to win book three in the audio series, now would be a good time to get caught up on books one & two on Amazon or here at Audible.com.


Happy listening, and thanks again to all!

        Week 7 audio book give-away:

For your chance to win this week's book, "Eye of the Witch", all you need to do is become a fan of this page (if you’re not already) and click LIKE on this post. Remember, once your name is in the cauldron, it’s there for all subsequent drawings as well. Of course, you increase your chances of winning every time you LIKE a new give-away announcement, so check back weekly and enter as often as you like.
Thank you all, and good luck to everyone!

               Sorry again Charlie, but...

Congratulations Susan Wilkinson, this week’s winner of ‘The Witch’s Ladder” audio book give-away!

To everyone who played, I want to say thank you all for participating. Susan, like last week’s winner, was one of many who participated in multiple audio book drawings. Her name went into the cauldron each time and she increased her chances of winning. I’m not saying that’s why she won, but 4 of the last 5 winners have entered at least twice before. Just saying.

In any case, it is a totally random drawing. If you entered any of the 6 drawings even once already, you’re still in to win. So good luck all, and as always, thank you so much for your love and support.


By the way, ladies, I noticed that women make up approximately 99% of the Witch’s books fan base. I love you all, you know that, but come on, don’t any of you have husbands, brothers or boyfriends that might want to get to know Lilith or Ursula? Turn them on already! You know the
y’ll like it. Besides, they can enter to win, too, which means a win-win for you

For your chance to win next time, follow Books by Dana E. Donovan on Facebook.

We Have A Winner!

Congratulations to this week's audio book give-a-way contest winner, Sara Jacobs!

Participation in the contest was overwhelming, and I wish you all could have won. You all do still have another chance, however, as your names will go back into the witch’s cauldron for next week’s drawing. Look for tomorrow’s Facebook post (Not This One) announcing the second give-a-way and if you click LIKE on that post, you will have twice the opportunity to win. Sharing the post is much appreciated, but alas, will not increase your chances of winning, only my undying affection for you.
Good Luck everyone!
