Woo! We got some winners up in here! Their names are posted next to their new book. I love the Holiday Hootenanny!
Hi, there! Starting today an hour early cuz we had to get Santa’s sleigh into the shop.
Every time a Women and Words merry elf sings “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” a tiny woodland fairy gets her wings. Fortunately for us, they all have pretty good voices, but even if they didn’t, who are we to stand in the way of wings and woodland fairies? Or even merry elves and Xmas carols?
Exactly. Shout-out to the generous authors and BSB for offering up a cornucopia o’ books for your holiday cheer, friends! Grab yerself some egg nog — PRANCER! Put that flask away! That’s the un-spiked nog! — and a cookie and join us for more merriment!
Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a lot of books in here!
So if you put your name down
we hope to hook you up, no fear!
Today’s offerings are listed below, in the order they’ll be given away. So the first name we draw will win Connie Wilkins’s book, the second will win Natania Barron’s book, and so on.
To enter today’s drawing, leave a comment on this blog entry. Include your email address at the comment prompt (it won’t be seen publicly). To avoid spam-bots, don’t include your email in the body of your comment. You have until 10 PM EST US (world clock link) to enter. At that point, we’re doing the drawing and we’ll post the winners here, on the Day 9 entry.
And authors, if you’re up today, you know the drill. Please don’t sign up for the drawing because it would be sort of un-holiday-ish if you won your own book. I mean, you’ve probably already read it. . . 🙂
Have fun and good luck!

Andi Marquette, winner’s choice of Friends in High Places or A Matter of Blood (Bedazzled Ink) WINNER – TIFFANY BERRY
Outlaw Torri Rendego can’t shake her past, in the form of her Academy bunkmate, Kai Tinsdale, an officer in the hated Coalition ranks. Torri thinks the Coalition is up to no good on the Tinsdale family holdings. Risking herself, her crew, and a tenuous tie to a shared history, Torri goes deep into Coalition territory to uncover a secret with far-reaching consequences for a distant and ancient culture. The stakes of this venture may prove way too high, even for a gambler like Torri. (Pick this one or the first, “Friends in High Places”)
D. Jordan Redhawk, Orphan Maker (Bella Books) WINNER – JOANNA PAYNE
From the author of the Sanguire series: In a world devastated by plague, a ragged group of newcomers seeks relief and protection in Lindsay Crossing.
