Holiday Giveaway

As the holiday gets near, my bells are jingling. There’s even snow on the ground to make the season bright. And that means it’s time for a holiday giveaway!

From now until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, December 23rd I will be taking names and checking lists. I didn’t join a holiday blog hop this year, so this giveaway is a quiet holiday thank you.

I will draw three winners, who can choose one of the following items (it’s not a problem if all three winners choose the same one):

  1. A signed paperback copy of Thick as Thieves.
  2. A signed paperback copy of Captive Heart.
  3. A swag bag that includes a Thick as Thieves notebook, coin purse, unicorn horn soap, and other goodies.
  4. A free ebook of your choice from my list.
And if you are a follower of my blog, or would be so kind as to follow my blog, you will be entered into a separate drawing for my special “Extra Nice” prize:

  • A $10 gift card, winner’s choice from Amazon, AllRomance, or Dreamspinner

How do you enter? 

~ Leave a comment on this post. Tell me your favorite holiday song. Mine is “Let it Snow”. People want to smack me when I sing it, but I love it anyway. J

~ Include your email. I need the email so I can notify you if you win and you can choose your prize.

~ And yes, I ship internationallyJ

My loving poodle and I will draw winners at random on the morning of Tuesday, December 24th. It’s that easy!

    1. Some of my favorites are German, because my Grandmother played and sang them when I was a girl. :) I love them all, to be honest.

  3. Trans-Siberian Orchestra- Carol of the Bells. As far as I'm concerned, it's not Christmas without that song.

    1. That is so you! This is great. I can hear my own kids singing Rudolph, and they're all grown up now. :) Happy Holidays!

  7. We'll... I'm jumping on the bandwagon and picking Carol of the Bells by TSO :-) It's my ringtone on my cellphone for crying out loud. Lol!!! But I love so many others too. But I'm a stickler for the originals. Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Gene Autry, Johnny Mathis, Jose Feliciano... Etc etc! You get the idea. I just can't listen to updated versions of some songs. It's the tradition of it I think :)

    I'm super geeks about this giveaway! You rock!!! Merry Christmas ;)

    1. Oh gosh, yes. I have a playlist that's just Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, Andy Williams and Harry Connick, Jr. (who sings a great classic). And what a great holiday ringtone. I am so going to do that right now!

    1. Hi Debbie! You and Ms. Morrigan should meet. :) Jingle Bells is one of my favorites, too. It goes perfectly with "Let it Snow".

  9. The Boar's Head is a pretty obscure Christmas carol that I've always loved. I also have fond memories of Good King Wenceslas. I hope you have a very wonderful December!

    1. Gosh, I almost forgot about Smokey! My Mom has his LP, Christmas with the Miracles, and we play it every year. Still sounds great, too! :) Merry Christmas!

  11. I love Aaron Neville's Soulful Christmas album. His version of Silent Night gives me chills and Louisiana Christmas Day is a toe-tapper. I follow you by email and this is a great group of gifts you have lined up.

    1. I was wondering if a new song would pop up, and here it is! Louisiana Christmas Day is one I've never heard of. I'm looking that up on iTunes. :) Thanks for following by email, too. I always kind of wonder if anyone is doing that. Don't know how to check! Merry Christmas!

  12. I have so many favorite songs, but I guess I will go with one no one has mentioned Hark The herald Angles Sing.
    I follow per email too.

    1. I'm finding out so many people I see in comments and on Twitter follow by email. That's really great to know. :) That's such a great carol, too, and keeps the spirit of the season. Have a great holiday!

  13. I have to go with one I participated in - another Carol of the Bells but with my high school chorus, good memories!

    1. Carol of the Bells wins! *laugh* But I can relate to that memory, because that song is one of the best for school groups. So much fun! Have a happy holiday!

    1. I don't know if any other carol captures the peace of a snowy evening and the religious overtones of the holiday as perfectly as Silent Night. It's so classic and beautiful. Merry Christmas, Sherry!

  15. My personal favorite is Santa Baby, by Ms. Eartha Kitt. I always sing along when I hear that song.
    And I check your blog out every day but have no way to show it, except that we've talked to each other before.

    1. Have no fear, Kathy. I pretty much know who pops in regularly on comments. :) My main reason for the follower thing is I want someone who actually visits on occasion to win the gift card. New friends are always welcome, of course! But that's also why I'm not publicizing this giveaway all over the internet. This one's for my readers and friends. :D

  16. I love so many Christmas carols and songs, so it's hard for me to choose. One of my favorites that has not been named is Angels We Have Heard On High.
    I follow by email.

    2. Oh, I love that song! It's so beautiful and haunting. Thanks! It's added to the playlist (which I will be playing today on the way to the family celebration of the holiday). :)

  17. Before anything I hope you enjoy all the blessings the holidays can bring you and your loved ones. Oh the holidays... I love 'Baby It's Cold Outside'. Gotta listen to it quite a few times before the end of the year. Oh, there is also one called J.I.N.G.L.E Bells that I like. And the original Santa Baby, not any of this Madonna or Britney Spears stuff. Gotta go for the classics.

    2. That's my favorite version, too. Such a great song. I'm looking up that J.I.N.G.L.E Bells one, too. :)

  18. It just doesn't feel like Christmas if I don't hear Boney M.'s Mary's Boy Child (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lv8RTNWUmmQ), but my favorite to sing is Carol of the Bells, and I have the same experience of Sara. That arrangement has never left my head since all the practicing in high school, and it probably has more to do with my fixation each Christmas to be part of a bell-playing group. Still hasn't happened yet, but a girl can dream. ;-)

    Even though you want to thank us for being extra nice, big thank yous to you for giving your readers your talent and time. It's such a gift!

    Merry Christmas, Tali, and may you have a spectacular new year!

    1. That's so sweet of you, and you're welcome. I get so much joy out of writing and being able to share my work with others. Maybe some day I'll explain why in a blog post. :D But I value every reader I have, every single one, and this holiday just brings that out in me. Have a great holiday!
