12 Days of Christmas Extravaganza sign up

Next Wednesday, December 14th I will be kicking off my 12 Days of Christmas Extravaganza!!! Over the course of the 12 Days of Christmas, I will be having multiple giveaways, posting excerpts from at least 3 different WIPs, trivia, holiday short stories and much much more. There are nine wonderful authors participating, in addition to myself.

So far, the prizes I have lined up are

  • Piper Vaughn's Zombie Wonderland
  • Lily Sawyers's Love on the East End
  • Megan Derr's The Christmas Package
  • Taylor V. Donovan's Southern Winterland
  • Kaje Harper's Unacceptable Risk
  • Lissa Kasey's Inheritance and Reclamation
  • Either Xara X. Xanakas' Snakeskin Boots OR Crazy Wind 
  • A Friday First Kiss with characters you create OR a follow up ficbit written with any two characters I have already created
  • $10 gift card to the online bookseller of your choice
  • Mystery Trivia Prize

Other posts you can look forward to are

  • M.J. O'Shea's Christmas cooking fun with Snowflake cookies
  • excerpts from WIPs or other posts from Lily Sawyer, Kaje Harper, Pia Veleno, Xara X. Xanakas, and Summer Michaels
  • A Christmas story featuring Chaz and Job from Broken
  • Author Trivia (for a prize, of course)

I am working on getting a few more things together as well so it should be a ton of fun.

So now, what you are really waiting to sign up!

There are three ways to get entries into the main giveaways:
  1. comment below with valid e-mail address for one entry
  2. become a follower of this blog for a second entry
  3. Pimp this event on facebook, goodreads, twitter, etc and post the link in your comment for a third entry
Entries for this portion of the giveaways will be open until 7:00 pm, EST on December 14th and winners will posted throughout the event. You will have 48 hours to get back to me or I will draw a new winner.

To be entered to win the Trivia prize, find the answer to each daily trivia question on the featured author's blog or website and e-mail it to me at with "Trivia - Author's Name" as the subject line. DO NOT post your trivia answers as a comment or you will give it away. =)

And finally, I will give away the $10 giftcard on Christmas day, if and only if, I have reached 50 followers before Midnight, EST on Christmas Eve. I will draw a winner from everyone who is a follower. Each person gets only one entry.

So sign up and tell everyone about it and get ready to have a great time while we wait for Christmas!!!!

  27. I am very much loving this contest and the posted authors right now. I would be ecstatic to join. I am now following the blog as well. The holiday time is the best. I would post under my name but for some reason it is not allowing me to log in under google. Not being tech savvy, I am anonymous.

    I have also become a "follower"! (sounds almost sinister, doesn't it?)
