And the winner is…

Hey, thanks for everyone who visited and those who played Pick Your Favorite Dragon in my Appreciate a Dragon Day contest & giveaway!  Diana was the obvious favorite, although the Medieval Mars dragon got a vote and my son wanted to vote for Duck’s friend Dragon if I had let him enter the drawing, which I didn’t.  He has all of my books already. 🙂  Anyway, I used a Random Number Generator from Google and it chose the number 2, which means that the second commenter (Lori) is the winner!  Congratulations and thanks again everyone who played!
