Congrats to all the winners!!!!!!
Winners were determined as follows:
You chose a number between 1 and 50. I then used this formula to convert to 12 sided die (since we had 11 entrants):
43/50 = x/12
I then rolled in order of the listing on the prize post. Items for which I rolled 12 were skipped and will be given away separately because everyone won something before I got back to them.

Urban Fantasy Month Contest!
So, it’s October and there’s only two weeks left until the highest of holy holidays for lovers of the arcane everywhere–Halloween. I got thinking about how Halloween is also the perfect holiday for lovers of urban fantasy. These two thoughts collided into an idea so epic, so awesome that my brain exploded.
I am hereby declaring October International Urban Fantasy Month!
Yes, yes, we only have two weeks left. But I think we put our evil minds to it, we can really blow this out. Naturally, my first thought was to hold a contest to celebrate. But I didn’t want to do just any contest. I wanted to do something that celebrates the genre but also brings new fans into the fold.
Here’s where you come in. Everyone who writes a love letter to Urban Fantasy on their own blogs (be sure to track back to this one so you’re counted) or here in comments if you don’t have a blog of your own, will be entered for a chance to win an epic prize pack of Urban Fantasy novels (with a couple of paranormal romances thrown in for spice).
So what constitutes an urban fantasy love letter? Talk about your favorite books or characters. Talk about what you love about the genre in general. Write a snarky haiku, romantic sonnet or dirty limerick. Anything goes as long as its about UF and how awesome it is.
So what will the winners get?
Brace yourselves. This big, bad collection of tricks and treats is so awesome its scary!
