Today I’ll announce the winners of our Kristina McMorris Contest!

But first…

for those who missed the interview last week and for those who didn’t win…do go out and buy this book…it’s romance at its best. Here is a blurb From Kristina's website

Chicago, 1944. Liz Stephens has little interest in attending a USO club dance with her friends Betty and Julia. She doesn't need a flirtation with a lonely serviceman when she's set to marry her childhood sweetheart. Yet something happens the moment Liz glimpses Morgan McClain. They share only a brief conversation - cut short by the soldier's evident interest in Betty - but Liz can't forget him. Thus, when Betty asks her to ghostwrite a letter to Morgan, stationed overseas, Liz reluctantly agrees.

Thousands of miles away, Morgan struggles to adjust to the brutality of war. His letters from "Betty" are a comfort, their soul-baring correspondence a revelation to them both. While Liz is torn by her feelings for a man who doesn't know her true identity, Betty and Julia each become immersed in their own romantic entanglements. And as the war draws to a close, all three will face heart-wrenching choices, painful losses, and the bittersweet joy of new beginnings.

Just so you know what you’ll be missing if you don’t go buy this book…TRUST ME… LETTERS FROM HOME is a book you’ll keep on the bookshelves forever to read over and over again.

Letters From Home was released in trade paperback from Kensington Books on Feb 22, 2011 in the U.S.. Yes, it just came out this past Tuesday! Avon/HarperCollins will release it for sale on May 5, 2011 in the U.K. Book club rights have been sold to Reader's Digest and Doubleday, and the film rights are represented by the prestigious Creative Artists Agency of Los Angeles. A portion of Kristina's sales proceeds will benefit United Through Reading®, a nonprofit organization that video records deployed U.S. military personnel reading bedtime stories for their children. See side panel for other places to buy the book.

Now for our WINNERS!
