Hootenanny 2016 – Day 12

day-12

You made it! This is Day 12 of the 2016 Women and Words Hootenanny. Thank you all for joining us on this wild n’ crazy ride. We hope that you had fun, that you met some folks, learned about some new authors, and won some books or other swag-ness. We also hope you had some fun with the antics that go on here and that you ran around singing Hootenanny songs all the time. And we hope that we were able to spread some luv.

Even though it’s the last day of the giveaway, the elves and reindeer generally don’t calm down for a couple more days yet, but they do help with cleanup (they’re magic). Right now, however, they’re teaching the neighbors’ grandparents the Electric Slide. As a tip, you can also do that dance to Janet Jackson’s “Nasty” (srsly — try it), but right now, they’re using Marcia Balls’ original. You have not lived until you see a bunch of merry elves in the middle of the street doing the Electric Slide. People, it is a sight to behold. Truly. And the neighbors are totally loving it. Heh. Oh, look! The pizza delivery folks are doing it, too! With pizza boxes! I’m telling you, when the elves are dancing, it’s infectious. You can’t not join in because it’s just too much fun.

We bailed Tucker out of the Over-Merriment Center earlier today. Sometimes 12 days of eggnog can get you into trouble...
We bailed Tucker out of the Over-Merriment Center earlier today. Sometimes 12 days of eggnog can get you into trouble…

You’ll be glad to know that the Imperial cruiser out back was destroyed by the rebels, who successfully got the plans to the rebel base (translation: they got the candy canes safely to the house). They did decide to take the tree back out to the tinsel-laden death star and put it back on top, which is fine. It’s oddly pretty. There are no doubt going to be several more impromptu dance parties throughout the rest of the day, because that’s how we do here. That’s what the Hootenanny is all about. Fun, festivities, community. We hope you found some of that with us.

And yeah, after we defeated the Imperial cruiser, we had to go get Tucker out of the Over-Merriment Center. They get really uptight there and Tucker might have had extra eggnog and might’ve been dancing around with a few reindeer and might’ve been flinging tinsel around with abandon, but seriously? It’s the Hootenanny, after all. Anyway, they let him go with a lecture about running down the street with reindeer, but we did take advantage of the photo op.

And a final THANK YOU and shout-out to all the authors and publishers who participated this year — we are staggered by your generosity. Thanks for all you do because without you, we certainly wouldn’t be able to put on this event. And we certainly wouldn’t be doing this without YOU, the readers, who support us not just during this event, but throughout the year. Thank you. Thanks to all of you. And thank you Jove, for the awesome banners! LOVE!

Oh, and hey, one of the merry elves suggested that if you won a book here at the Hootenanny or you learned about an author’s book here and you bought it, it would be a cool thing for you to leave a review at Amazon or Goodreads or some other review site, to help spread the word about that author’s work. Hopefully, you enjoyed the book…LOL

OKAY! To get in on today’s delicious-ness, leave a comment below. One entry per person per day. Please do feel free to comment more than once if you’re chatting, but keep in mind we’re only counting one comment. Make sure you include your email address in the comment fill-out form (not in the comment body) so you’re not exposing yourself to creepy spambots on the interwebz. We lock that info up in the back, so you’re all good.

We close the blog at 10 PM EST US time (world clock link) and then we get right to the drawing. We give prizes in the order they appear here. So the first person drawn gets the first thing on the list, the second the second, and so on. Helps us in the back to do it that way, believe me. We also email winners as soon as we know who they are and we post the name of the winner next to the book/swag won. So if you see your name on the list but you don’t have an email from us, CHECK YOUR SPAM FILTER. If there’s no email in there, drop us a line at our Contact page so we can hopefully get it all figured out.

And authors, if you have a book in the line-up today, please don’t enter the drawing. Cuz that’d just be wrong, to win your own book.

[HINT: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas“]

Hope you have a merry little bookfest
let the eggnog flow
fill your glass
and raise it cuz we all know

That we had a merry little bookfest
kept the Yuletide GAY (so gayyyyyy)
here’s some ‘nog
and more goofy songs to play

Here we are with all these books
many books to read, it’s true
and all our friends so dear to us
hang around with us, our crew

Through the years
we’ll do it all again
if the elves allowwwwww
hang a ton of tinsel on the highest bough
and have yourself…a merry little bookfest…nowwwwwwww

  10. Awww… even though I’ll be sad to see Tucker and his friends go, I’m really happy that I took part in the Hootenanny this year 🙂 This was my first time participating and it was a blast! I want to thank all of the authors and publishers for giving so generously because as an avid reader I really appreciated winning some of the wonderful I received. A big thank you to Jove Belle and Andi Marquette for crafting the daily humor by portraying Tucker in his numerous escapades of mischief and the coordination of the Hootenanny event, you both have made it really enjoyable and I will post reviews online on amazon and good reads about the books I’ve had the pleasure of winning. Reviews matter a lot because other people should know about an author’s talent and we the readers need to spread the word. By the way I really need to see Tucker in all of his glory doing the electric slide with his friends! Hahahaha!
    Woohoo for the Hootenanny!!!
    Happy holidays to everyone!!!

  50. Hip, hip, hip, hourray! We finally made it through the Hootenanny 2016.
    And it’s been a really good one for everybody, both writers and readers.
    Hugs and kisses to all of you; see you next year (hope so…) we never know!
