|I am normally not Grinchy at all, but this year...|
Most years, the inside of my house is decorated all but the tree itself a week or so before Thanksgiving. I try to hold out, I really do, but always give in. I start with multiple Nativity scenes, one of which is hand-painted by me, then go on to my nutcracker collection. A smattering of miscellaneous figurines and wreaths get spread around. Then the very day after Thanksgiving, the tree and outside lights go up.
|My daughter IS this cute, or the decorations might still not be up!|
Why am I telling you this?
Well, I need to do something to get me feeling Christmas-y. I thought maybe giving some books away might help.
So, I am going to run a contest for one copy each of four books. As in, if you win, you get all four.
They are as follows:
Angel doesn't remember her magical heritage...but it remembers her.
Magic and science collide when she embarks on a journey to her true home, and to herself.
Angel lives with a loving foster family, but dreams of a land that exists only in the pages of a fantasy novel. Until she meets Gregor, whose magic Talent saves her life and revives lost memories.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Preteens, which contains my story "Armored and Dangerous" (a tale about the time I found strength in a very odd place when faced by a bully).
Aquasynthesis, the anthology featuring short stories by all the Splashdown Books authors. Three of my stories are found inside.
Odd Little Miracles by Fred Warren. It is a collection of his short stories, which are what made me buy his book, The Muse, which is what got me interested in Splashdown Books as a potential publisher because I *adore* his writing.
These are all brand-new, unread copies, that I bought to sell. So, if you enter but happen to have one of the titles already, think "gift." :D
Now, how to enter.
I hate trying to track these things, to be honest. I want to make it easy on you, and on me. Each of the following gives you one entry:
- Leave a comment here, on THIS POST. (If you comment any-ole-where on the blog it makes it very hard for me to track it down.)
- Leave a comment on my Facebook wall or in a message.
- Leave a comment on my Facebook Author Page wall or in a message.
- Friend me and/or become a "fan" on Goodreads and send me a message.
*Make sure your comment or message states that you are interested in the giveaway, please!*
I will contact the winner on December 13th, so if you are giving one or more titles away they'll reach you before Christmas. (I hope.) (I really should have thought of this earlier...)
