Monday Mayhem: My Longest Post...Don't Miss It!


Welcome! I hope your holiday season is going well.

I've been doing some major Christmas shopping and Santa's sleigh was quite full so I'm hoping when the list is checked off that I'm almost finished. Fingers crossed. And last night we wrapped gifts, watched a Christmas movie and drank hot cocoa with marshmallows. It was a wonderful evening.

This week there are lots of things happening around Romanceland from reviews to contests and a few things in between. And did I mention fabulous prizes to win???  :-)

It's a rather long list so I'll just start posting the information with links in no particular order. I hope you find something of interest.


This month Chick Lit Aficionado aka Alicia Williams is reading and reviewing a Yuletide Romance each day of December. And this week she's reviewing SNOWBOUND WITH THE SOLDIER. *bites nails* If you want to follow along with her yuletide reviews, you can join in HERE.


I was also notified that the SNOWBOUND WITH THE SOLDIER book trailer has been selected by You Gotta Read for their monthly contest.

The book trailer is being featured today. And... 

Voting in December will be between December 21 and December 26.


And don't miss your chance to win this hand-crafted sterling silver snowball necklace. I found this at an art's fair and I fell in love with it. The only problem is I got so excited that I forgot to get one for myself. So make sure you enter to win. It also comes with an autographed edition of SNOWBOUND WITH THE SOLDIER plus swag. ;-)

The contest is going on until December 16th on Fresh Fiction. Click HERE to enter.

And good luck!

And on The Chocolate Box (a group author blog) there is an on-going contest ~ THE 12 DAYS OF CHOCOLATE. The grand prize is a Kindle Paperwhite.

There's lots of fun to be had and prizes to win. :-)

Sprinkling some chocolate chips for you to follow to THE CHOCOLATE BOX.


Today kicks off Harlequin's Annual Community Open House. It's always great fun. I can't even tell you how many years I participated as a reader and now I'm thrilled to be participating as a Harlequin author. 

Harlequin Romance won't be highlighted until Thursday, the 12th. This is when a copy of SNOWBOUND WITH THE SOLDIER will be given away. It should be lots of fun and lots to win by various Harlequin lines. I hope you'll have a chance to stop by and share a cyber cup of cheer. :-)

You can find the week long party HERE.


Right now I'm participating in a 2013 Debut Author Giveaway Hop. And since I'm a 2013 debut author, it makes it doubly fun for me. I'm offering up a copy of RANCHER TO THE RESCUE. So if you haven't read it yet, this is your chance to win a copy. 

Plus there's a whole host of other blogs with debut books being offered up for prizes. So if you are looking for some new-to-you authors, please join in the hop. It's lots of fun. :-)

You can start HERE.


Now I believe that is my longest post to date. LOL. But what can I say? There's a lot going on this month and I didn't want you to miss out on any special events.

But that's not all. Keep checking back as I have some more special events planned.

And if you haven't signed up for my newsletter yet, you might want to. I'm planning to give away an Autographed Advanced Reader Copy of my next release, SAFE IN THE TYCOON'S ARMS to one lucky subscriber.

Until next time, happy reading!
