Mother of Dragons! I won :)

A couple of weeks ago I was playing on Pinterest and came across this little guy

made by GirlsSewingStuffs on Etsy, and then at the bottom of the listing was this:

*****FREE OFFER****

Do you love our plushes but can’t afford to collect them all? Once a month we give away a plush for FREE to one lucky nerd lover who can answer our book trivia questions from our blog ( Check it out weekly, hunt to find which video we’ve hidden the giveaway in, and be the first to answer; then we’ll sew it, wrap it, and mail it to you all free of charge, no matter where you are! Plus if you write an Amazon review for the book we’re covering, you’ll also get a free autographed hard copy! Happy hunting!

I always like a good contest so I headed over to their blog and watched a couple of videos. The one that had the quiz in it was the Bob's Espresso Bar post and the questions was "What is Ivory's mothers name in F.M. Sherril's book Ivory?" Faith Sherril is the author of the blog and one of the "girls" sewing stuffs and she is very cleverly marketing her book. So I dowloaded a sample from Amazon to my Kindle and started reading. It's a really cool sci-fi fantasy book and I was more than happy to write a review (and answer the question! - Mother's name is Helena).

Then I sent them an email and yesterday my prize arrived in the mail!

Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, Queen of the Andals, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons

and a signed copy of Ivory: 

So fun! I love a good win :)
(And yes, for those who know me well... I was hoping it would be the Doctor, but Daenerys is pretty sweet too)

A good win is always fun! Sean's team name is the Dragon's (Baseball) so I was confused at first when I saw the post title - haha!
