DAY 10 of the 12 Day Holiday Hootenanny!

Taylor the Wonder Dog and six gnomes (one of them was the Travelocity one) picked the winners tonight. It was, indeed, a thing to behold. Especially when the Travelocity gnome jumped into the canvas bag and did a rave. Freaky.

But regardless, the deed is done and here we go!

1. Anne Laughlin, “Veritas”–Florence

2. Marianne Martin, “Legacy of Love”–Kathy Aydin

3. Jeanine Hoffman, “Strength in Numbers”–Ze

4. Lynn Ames, Winner’s Choice–Anita Bradshaw

5. Barbara Clanton, “Out of Left Field”–Lynn Glover

Dang, Ze. The gnome picked you third. But I know Lynn was having a big sale recently…so maybe stop by her site and see what’s up? Regardless, a free book! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!

And don’t forget! TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY!!!!!! WOOOOOO! 5 MORE TITLES!!!!! The Hootenanny CONTINUES!!!!!

1. Anne Laughlin, Veritas

source: Bold Strokes Books
Lambda Literary-recognized and Goldie-winning author Laughlin brings us a story about academic infighting, murder, and an unexpected attraction between a professor and a homicide detective. Because tenure, my friends, is bloody business.

2. Marianne Martin, Legacy of Love

source: Marianne K. Martin
When Marianne’s not helping run Bywater Books publishing house, she’s a bestselling lesfic author. Here, Sage Bristo is the woman everyone wants. But Sage only wants one woman, and that’s the one she just can’t get. Or can she? Find out if you win!

3. Jeanine Hoffman, Strength in Numbers

source: Jeanine Hoffman
L-Book author Hoffman brings you a story about four women, each facing demons from the past or issues in the present. How will they fare when a crisis hits one of them? And can they find strength in numbers? Hope you win to see…

4. Lynn Ames, Winnerโ€™s Choice
Cover of Lynn’s latest, Eyes on the Stars

source: Lynn Ames
OMG, people! Goldie winner Lynn (and publisher at Phoenix Rising Press) is offering a choice. Whichever of her books you want. Will it be something from the Kate and Jay series? (The Price of Fame, The Cost of Commitment, the Value of Valor) Or will it be one of her standalones? One-Love, Heartsong, or her just-released WWII fiction, Eyes on the Stars? Oh, my goodness. You won’t go wrong with any of ’em.

5. Barb Clanton, Out of Left Field

source: Regal Crest Enterprises
Barb’s back for another round. Yeah! In this, her debut young adult novel, high school junior Marlee is a pitcher on her upstate New York high school softball team. She wants the All County pitching title, but she and her Cougers have to overcome their arch-rivals, the Panthers. While watching one of their rivals’ games, Marlee is strangely drawn to a Panther player, and that’s when things start to unwind.


  1. Please, please, please Father Christmas – I’ve been a (very, very) good girl (depending on your interpretation of “good” *g*) can I have Lynn for Christmas…

    Lynn’s book I mean of course.

    I believe in Father Christmas, I believe in the Israelite, I believe in fairies – I believe!! Alleluia I believe.

    Can I has now??

    (apologies to Greg Lake and J M Barrie)


  2. Count me in w/ Andi inspecting Santa’s sleigh. Does he have a license? And, do the reindeer have poop bags on them? It will be a long night.


  3. I have only missed one day because I had all the books and didn’t think it fair to try and win something I already had but here I go again. I’m in.


  4. Wow, can’t believe it is almost over… but here’s hoping for a win today ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck everyone ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. Throwing my hat into the ring here, cliche, I know, but still going for it. Wish me luck ๐Ÿ˜‰



  6. Just love the way you intro these, Andi! Always so inventive and festive! Please include my name in the drawing but I have recently won Jeanine’s in an auction for an author so don’t need that one and I own Marianne’s (fabulous book)…so obviously the same. I just wanted to be fair and let you know if somehow my name came up on one of those two, please choose another! Thanks for all the hard work this has taken! good luck to all and big hugs, kfemme


  7. We’re having our kitchen retiled and it’s really making the holidays crazy. Maybe one of these lovely books would relax me!


  8. I have some of the books on that page such as the great Legacy of love. But always up to discover other books.

    So count me on that new draw… ๐Ÿ™‚
