I'm a December baby so this month is especially special to me. Sometimes people wonder if I'm unhappy to have a holiday birthday, since you often get fewer presents. I'd have to say no. I may get fewer presents but I have a whole month of celebrating to do! Heck, I even get carols to serenade me wherever I go! Plus in my neck of the woods it snows and snows and snows this time of year, though I always wish for rain on my birthday. We get upwards of 100 inches of snow per winter here - a little rain in December makes a nice change of pace!
I love so much about Christmas. The first snowfall, listening to Christmas carols, buying gifts...sometimes I even like braving the crowds at the mall! But this year I like something even better! I'm here participating in my first ever 30 Days of Decadence event because my first Decadent Publishing release, VIRGIN TERRITORY, will be out in not too long! I'm super excited to be part of this amazing team and so I'm giving away prezzies! Sounds good to me!
For folks in the United States, if you'd like a chance to win that ginormous basket of stuff you see pictured just tell me what you adore most about Christmas. If it's your annual reviewing of Charlie Brown's Christmas, hey, that counts...and I agree!
So what's in the basket? It's Christmas-tastic, with a signed Christmas Harlequin Blaze by my good friend Samantha Hunter, a copy of the anthology for writers, How To Write Hot Sex - feel free to share with a friend if you're not a writer - cocoa, chocolates, a booklight, candles, lotion, ornaments and a $10 Amazon Gift card, among other goodies! The thing's pretty hefty!
For the international commenters, I'll pick a winner to win a $10 Gift Card to either Amazon or Barnes and Noble and I will email it to you. I don't want anyone to feel left out at this rockin' Christmas party!
So please, tell me what you like about Christmas, leave a way for me to contact you, and tell me which prize you'd like to be entered for, either the US or international version. And happy holidays!
