Anyway, I have noticed that quite a few of readers in that time have not come forward for their booty—way more than usual, it seems—which makes Randy very sad (see how sad Randy looks over there leaning so fetchingly on the free books that are left by their lonesome?).
I am not sure why this is; you have interest enough to put your name into the hat (many of you daily!), yet some of you either never check the next day or two, or forget to email me, or go on a secret mission into the jungles of Peru for your secret-spy job. Or something. In all fairness, I must to take into account that we suffered three+ weeks of tech hell with the site in October/early November, though that does not say what is going on the rest of the time, nor why folks didn’t check once we were back up and running. Whatever the cause, it makes me, Randy, Wave and the offerer (publisher/author) have frowny faces because we want you to get your freebies!
What I’ve decided to do with this list is, based on recommendations of the cool ladies around the lunch table of the recent Bay Area M/M Reader’s Group monthly get-together, is anyone who does NOT contact me in response this post by email within ten days doesn’t get the book they won. I will take the group of leftover unclaimed reads and offer them up in a batch, then Randy can have a field-day picking names for the remainders.
Please find below a list of those who never contacted me from August through November (yes, I know the last week of November winners is a bit quick for this list, but I thought I’d get through the month):

If you see your name on this list, please email me — Aunt Lynn — at freebooks [at] reviewsbyjessewave.com so that I can forward your information (including format of choice) to the publisher (and put a smile on Randy’s face). If it is a DSP title, I’ll need the email addy associated with your account. Also, if you did contact me and either we fulfilled or I missed your email, apologies.
And lastly, get the word out! If you know someone on this list, tell them to get their butt over here to see how to get their book.
