{friday five} Fun Stuff Galore!

Welcome to the first Friday Five of December! It’s been a very special week. My new Christmas book, Yuletide Redemption, is available in stores, and the digital book released yesterday. I’ve been blessed to take part in some really cool promotions, and I want to make sure you get the scoop!

Friday Five: Fun Stuff Galore!

1. “When Your Calling Flatlines” on Seekerville.

I’m sharing encouragement for aspiring and published writers who wonder if it’s time to give up (12/01/16). If you’re not familiar with Seekerville, it’s an amazing blog formed by thirteen Christian authors who kept finaling in the same contests when they were unpublished. In the nine years since the blog was formed, ALL of them have gone on to be published. These ladies are so generous with writing advice, and they have terrific readers! Check the comments out every day–I learn from both the posts and the comments.

2. “Friday Fun: Cozy Christmas Reads!” on The Pink Heart Society.

I’m sharing favorite Christmas books I read growing up. (Hint: Sweet Valley High makes the list.) Stop by–I’d love to know what yours were!

3. “#12DaysofChristmas” was the spectacular idea of Liz Johnson’s, and she kicked off this mega-contest yesterday!

Eleven authors, including myself, are giving away oodles of books, bookmarks and even one $25 Amazon gift card. There’s a winner every day, and the prizes snowball as the days wear on. Go to Liz’s blog and check it out! My post will be on December 8, right here!

4. #CategoriesForChristmas sponsored by #1 New York Bestselling author, Susan Mallery, is another huge contest where one winner will over 20 category novels (including one of mine) and a cute Harlequin tote bag!

Simply sign up for Susan Mallery’s newsletter (linked), and after you confirm the subscription, you can go to her “Members” tab, click on “Contests” and enter your information in the form at the bottom of the page. Easy!

5. Chapter Four of A Cradle for Christmas is live!

My FREE novella on Harlequin’s Online Reads releases one chapter at a time every Monday. You can read it on your phone or tablet or print it out!

What fun stuff have you enjoyed lately?

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you have a very lovely weekend.
