Okay, it’s official. It’s finally December, which means that I can go around humming “Silver Bells” with impunity for the next 25 days, and Sailor Boy can get peeved (because he claims it’s his least favorite of all the Christmas Carols, while it is in my top three, easy) and in retaliation, sings the Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York,” which has these heartwarming lyrics:
You’re a bum
You’re a punk
You’re an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God its our last
Nice, huh? I tell you, I adore that man.
ANYWAY, the point of this post is that in honor of this fabulous holiday season, I am holding a month of giveaways. Let’s call it the NINETEEN DAYS OF XMAS — that’s right, every (week) day, from now until December 25th, I’ll be doing a giveaway here on the blog! And it’s all kind of different fun stuff, too. A sampling:
- Signed Books
- Boxes (yes, whole boxes!) of mystery books in a variety of genres
- My books
- And other special prizes!
And there’s a special prize on December 15th for fans of the Secret Society Girl series — one that everyone is eligible to receive just by signing up for my newsletter. (Please note: you do NOT have to be a member of Yahoo to sign up for the newsletter. There is a “mailing list” option.) Sign up before December 15 to be eligible!
Today’s giveaway is a signed copy of the National Book Award finalist, THE RULES OF SURVIVAL, by Nancy Werlin. Oooh…. Aaaaaaah.
Comment now to enter! Come back tomorrow for more prizes! Yay, December!
In other news, check out the auction going on right now to benefit author Jo Leigh, who lost her husband to cancer earlier this year. Leigh is an extraordinary author and woman, and some of the items up for auction would make fantastic Xmas presents. Go now and bid! (I already have.)
