Holiday Gifts of Love are Hopping

It's a Happy Holiday from your favorite Authors and Bloggers. While we know everyone celebrates a different way, we wanted to make sure that you guys knew how much we treasure you all. So from Dec 14th to Dec 17th, all 200 or so of us will be blogging about the holidays and what they mean to us. We may talk about our favorite holiday traditions, recipes, gifts, reads, heroes, and so much more. We want to hear about what you do for the holidays, what you read, and who you'll spend it with. We hope to see you here and happy hopping!

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways, so be sure to hop around in the spirit of the season.

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!

Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $200 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!

So, for my part, I'm giving away an eBook copy of one of my four books.  None are about the holidays, so I'm offering a reader's choice for the holiday season.  For more information about a particular book, just click on the title listed below.  But don't worry if you don't have time now to browse, I'll be sure to provide more information when I select my winner.

Want to know how you can join in on the fun?  It's easy.  Just leave a comment below, on this blog, telling us what you like most about this time of year.  For me it's the magic of the season and the good fellowship that abounds.  Even while shopping in stores among harried, busy shoppers, I find myself smiling.  Life is too short not to laugh and enjoy it at its fullest.

Share what you enjoy, and don't forget to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you when the hop is over.

Happy Holidays to all! 


  1. I enjoy giving my loved ones gifts and the challenge of finding the perfect gift for each person. :)

  2. Since I only read m/m books these days, I'd like to withdraw myself from your book prizes to give others a better chance. However, I'd love to be included in the draws for the Grand Prizes.

    Happy holidays :)

  8. Thanks for joining this fabulous hop!

    Hmm I love watching my 3 year old get excited about all of the Christmas lights. He's learning more & more each year so it's exciting to see how something that didn't really get his attention last year excites him this year.
