Hootenanny 2017 – Day 12

YOU MADE IT! Yay! Here we are on the last day of Hootenanny 2017 and we just want to thank you for joining us and engaging with us and your fellow readers, writers, and publishers and we hope that in spite of all the icky stuff going on out there that you found safe haven and some holiday joy and spirit here. Carry that forth, friends. We need it.

THANK YOU — A MILLION JILLION THANK YOUS — to all the authors and publishers who graciously provided books for this event, and THANK YOU, dear readers, for all your support over the years of this community. We couldn’t do this event without any of you, and we are always humbled and blown away by the generosity we’re shown.

And yes, this place is…omg. It looks like a tinsel tornado went through here. There are lights hanging from the ceiling fans and Rudolph had to come in to get some help taking the popcorn strings off his antlers and legs. Several of the elves have been trying to re-decorate, to ensure that the lights are up and functional for Santa and all his helpers who join him this time of year spreading good holiday ju-ju and Solstice greetings around the globe wherever they can.

Okay, so…Super Tucker may not be the best at re-decorating.

A bunch of the elves and reindeer have been caroling around the neighborhood (imagine Alvin and the Chipmunks singing with lovely bass grunts from the reindeer) and giving out cookies from their baking “competition” (everybody won) yesterday and a few are inviting people over for hot apple cider and more singing. I have no plans on sleeping tonight, but thanks for asking. LOL

The elves have now seen the new Star Wars movie five times. It might be their favorite so far and they’re looking forward to the next one. Tucker is planning on having viewings of it every weekend until next Hootenanny. He stays busy in the off-season too, friends. Honing his entertainment skills and Super Tucker awesome-ness. 🙂

We also have the big-screen TV showing all kinds of holiday movies. They’re on perpetual loop, a mix of animated and non-animated. I’m glad to see that Die Hard and The Long Kiss Goodnight are in perpetual play. Those are two of my faves. Which probably should tell you a bit about how I feel about the holidays. Heh. Not sure what it means that the elves like those, too. Hmm.

And the neighbors brought a bunch of donuts by because they figured Jove and I would be up all night on this, the final day of festivities. So we are SET, people! Snacks, dancing, caroling, and BOOKS! Happy Day 12!

Refresher: to enter today’s drawing, leave a comment below. DONE! Please include your email address in the comment fill-out form (not in the comment body because YIKES! Spambots!). We close the day’s drawing at 10 PM EST US (here’s your world clock) and then we immediately do the drawings and notify winners. We also post the names of the winners on the blog, so if you see your name but haven’t gotten an email, check your spam filter. If you still don’t see one, drop us a line at the Contact page here at Women and Words and we will figure it all out. It may take us a minute, given our sugar crashes and generalized Hootenanny-induced exhaustion, but we will make it happen!

Prizes are given out in the order in which they appear. So the first name drawn gets the first prize listed, the second the second, and so on. This helps things run smoothly and believe me, that is definitely something you want to happen.

One entry per person. We like it if you chit-chat back and forth with fellow travelers on the blog, and we will only count one of those comments as your entry.

Authors, if you have a book listed today, please don’t enter the drawing. Because that’s just no fun, to win your own book. You’ve read that one at least once, amirite?

And now,

(Hint: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas“)

Hope you had a merry little bookfest
Hope your heart is light
From now on
Your reading will be out of sight
Hope you had a merry little bookfest
Keep the Yule-tide GAY (SO GAY!!!!)
From now on
Your reading will bring smiles all day

Here we are on these crazy days
Happy bookfest days, they’re yours
Many friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we’ll read it all together
If the elves allow
Hang a light saber upon the highest bough
And hope you had a merry little bookfest now.

    I’m going to miss not having this to check every day but it was fabulous while it lasted and I’m already looking forward to next year!

    Thanks again to all the authors and publishers who donated and make this possible! But mostly, thanks and huge hugs to Andi and Jove for doing this year after year ! You two are the best!

    • GREETINGS! You found us now, so just keep in mind we Hootenanny Dec. 12-23! And we also do lots of book giveaways the rest of the year, because lots of authors stop by to blog and give a copy or two away of their works. WOOOO!


      • Good to know. Always looking for new recs for books. We have a few favorite authors, and then plenty of others over 100 authors on our shelves currently, but there are so many more. So, thank you for introducing us to more, besides yourselves (yes, you are on our shelf already!). I am bookmarking the page, she has signed up for the newsletter, and we will never miss another!

  16. Omg I’ve seen Long Kiss Goodnight many times. I rewatch movies and series, and reread books often. I can never understand people who don’t. How can you not want to revisit old favourites?

    I would like to thank Andi and Jove for always making the daily Hootenanny emails so much fun. We never knew what Tucker and the elves would get up to with the reindeer and neighbours. And of course to the generous authors and publishers. It’s been great fun.

  17. It would appear that time really DOES fly! Here we are, at the last day. It has been fun, as always. Tucker has been epic, and I marvel at the literary, and artistic talent of Andi, Jove, and anyone involved in the HOOTENANNY endeavor!
    One of these days, a young nonconformist is going to come across these archives and know the kind of the fun loving, giving, caring, reading lesbians that we are! What are Legacy!

    Thank you Women and Words. Someone who may not have been able to get a book, or a t-shirt, or even just have a smile this year, has been rewarded by just participating in the hootenanny.

    You know what? I think, every time the hootenanny ends, SURELY a lesbian somewhere gets their wings! Right? Love you all much. ❤

  22. The rescue elves are excited, their Hot wheels track sliding board is currently acting more as a slip and slide as the rain is coming down at a steady pace. We may get snow tomorrow, but for now, they are belly flopping into a hug mud hole that’s formed at the bottom. The wife was not amused and had the hazmat minions set up decontamination showers just outside the basement door. What a mess…and pile of laundry. All the packages have been wrapped and the elves are excited for Santa. Shhh, keep the magic of Christmas alive for them a little while longer. The truck company trolls are due to arrive tomorrow night to lay out a landing pattern for the big guy on the roof. They’ve been busy helping string Christmas lights all over town with their 100 ft bucket truck. So until next year when we do it all again…..THANK YOU TO ALL who put this together! Merry Christmas and Happy Hootenanny!

  40. Day 12 at last! And here, because you asked (no you didnt), is the thrilling conclusion to Hootenanny Hijinks 2017! You’ll have to go to yesterday’s post to see the beginning.

    Hootenanny Hijinks – 2017 cont.

    The elves invited him inside
    He was the jolliest of jolly
    And right off the bat
    he mistook mistletoe for holly

    Perhaps he’d already started
    on cheer and libations
    But if that was the case
    could he still fly nation to nation

    Andi and Jove did some thinking
    Which was harder than a coin toss
    how could Christmas still happen
    If Santa had been hitting the sauce

    They quickly gathered the elves
    While Santa beer-bonged eggnog
    The poor reindeer milled around
    lost and in a burnt pizza fog

    Before they could come up
    with a solution to their plight
    Tucker arrived at the house
    The sleigh loaded with toys and lights

    Put him in the back
    Tucker said with a sure grin
    I stopped drinking hours ago
    even the tonic and gin

    And that was how xmas was saved
    By Tucker, one strange little elf
    On xmas eve, he made Santa a success
    The next morning he was back on the shelf

  60. Hmm, can’t find my comment from an hour ago. Want to be sure you get my entry as well as my note of gratitude. Thank you Jove and Andi for Hootenanny 2017. Authors & publishers, thank you for sharing your work with us. What a great new list of reading for the upcoming year!!!


  61. and so, like all great things, we come to an ending. But it’s been fun 🙂
    Just one thing though – I need to grab my cudgel and talk sense into those elves as I’m firmly in the dislike camp for the new Star Wars movie. And why wasn’t there more Phasma!


  62. Bummer! I loved it. Saw it twice in a row. Oh, well. The movie can’t be all things to all people. I do agree, though, that there needs to be more Phasma. Speaking of, I highly recommend Delilah Dawson’s Phasma.


  63. I would like to send massive love to the admins, authors, and publishers who make this possible every year. Virtual group hug! And Happy Holidays to the entire lesfic community.


  64. This has been such a fun time. Thanks for doing this. Thanks to all authors, publishers and donors. Merry Christmas to all.
