You made it, did you? Here we are, friends! The last BLOWOUT day of this awesomely massive holiday book giveaway. THANK YOU to all the authors and publishing houses who were more than happy to provide books for this event! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for making this an awesome holiday and for of course helping the reindeer and elves outdo themselves in terms of parties while giving all these books away.
And they always have a blast doing it. ALWAYS!
Today’s offerings are listed below. If you want in on the drawing, leave a comment on this blog. Please, one entry per person, friends. Let’s share the luv. Make sure you provide a valid email address in the comment fill-out form. Nobody sees it except us in the back. 🙂 Do NOT put your email address in the body of the comment because the dark and scary bureau of anti-holiday fun has sent its minions of nasty little spam-bots across the interwebz, and they gather up email addresses for their nefarious spamotic purposes. We’re trying to help you, here, folks.
The drawing closes at 10 PM EST US (world clock linkie dinkie). We do the drawing right after we close it, and then we pass the winners’ contact info along to the authors, who will contact you directly. We also post the winners’ names on this blog. So give the author a little bit of lag time to contact you. If you win a publisher’s book, we here at Women and Words contact the winners to get information to submit to the publisher.
And authors, if your book is offered today, please refrain from the drawing because how freaking weird would it be to win your own book? Yeah. Pretty weird.
So thanks, everybody, for the awesome-ness. Thanks for joining us during the past 12 days, and here’s hoping you have a great holiday season.
Have yourself a groovy little Christmas
Hope your reading’s bright
And for a while your troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a funky little Christmas
Make your yuletide GAY (OH SO GAY!)
Kick your troubles in the butt so they go away
Here we are on the last of twelve days
Happy Hootenanny days of yore
Faithful folks who are dear to us
And post comments with us once more
And this year we’re all here together
Cuz the fates allowed
Fling your tinsel on the highest bough
And have yourself an awesome little Christmas now
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, everybody!
