Enter to Win Prizes at a Facebook Party

I’m participating in the 12 Days of Ebook Cheer promotion December 1-12, and we’re having a Facebook party today! I’ve never done one of those before, have you?

So this is what happens – most of our authors are going to be stopping by this page sometime between Noon and 3pm Pacific (3pm-6pm Eastern). We’ll be posting funny questions or telling you a little about our books (all 12 are on sale for 99c through Friday night!), and then we’ll be randomly drawing winners to give prizes to!

You can go to Facebook right now and join the party by hitting the Join button near the top right. I think that’s how you get Facebook to remind you when the party starts. Then go read and comment and have fun! Hope to see you there!

We’ve got some more fun prizes for you to win in addition to what happens at the Facebook party. There’s a Book Cover Contest (you know who I’d love to win!), you can buy or gift any or all of the twelve books on sale, and you can answer fun questions for a chance to win Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift cards! You only have through Saturday, December 13 to get in on this action. So click on the picture below to learn more about the fun!

Please share this post using the social media buttons below and let all your friends know. 🙂

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you have a beautiful and blessed day and week. John and I are doing all sorts of fun and family and relaxing and ridiculous things this week. There’s going to be a lot of baking and eating, Xbox and movies, reading and playing games. It’s going to be great!

I hope you have some fun and relaxing things to do this Christmas and New Year’s, too. Whether you are in winter or summer or some weather in between, I pray you are safe and healthy and grateful for all the good things in your life.

God bless you! 😀

Netflix Picks: Christmas Movies by Andrea Nasfell

Christmas with Cap CThere are lots of Christmas movies out there, but it can be difficult to find ones you like. It just so happens I have an inside track on Christmas movies this year! My friend Andrea Nasfell has two out – on Netflix and in Redbox, as well.

The first one I watched is from last year, Christmas with a Capital C. I liked the whole thing – all the actors, the story, the whole movie. But I particularly loved the interaction between the two brothers. They were so funny and interesting and believable that I wouldn’t be surprised to hear they are really brothers! LOL!

Now just to warn you, if you couldn’t tell by the title, this is a movie about Christ and Christmas. Very cool. Not over the top. Just showing a group of people with different opinions trying to figure out how to enjoy the holidays together.

I liked it so much, I think I’ll watch it again next Christmas!

My rating is 5 stars (Loved It, per Netflix ratings system)

Christmas AngelChristmas Angel is the movie Andrea wrote that came out this year around Thanksgiving. I love several of the actors in this one, too. Della Reese is one of my all-time favorites, and she even sang in this movie! Ah, happy Kitty. 🙂

I really liked the story a lot – Christmas wishes and angels and miracles and love – awesome! But there were some bits where I thought the acting wasn’t great and that kicked me out of the story a bit.

Overall, it was worth the time and made me feel like Christmas is in the air.

My rating is 4 stars (Really Liked It)

Andrea, if you’re reading this, thanks for making my Christmas that much more fun! 🙂

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Netflix Picks: Christmas Movies

It’s about that time of year when I can’t get enough Christmas movies and Christmas-themed books. Here are some fun picks from Netflix.

Fireplace for Your Home
John found this and turned it on one night to surprise me. It was sweet to cuddle in front of the fire and talk while listening to the digital popping of logs on the fire. And no cleanup!

Definitely 5 stars (Loved It, per the Netflix ratings system)

The Lamp
I wasn’t so sure about this one at first. It’s got a sad, slow start. But as I tried to keep working while I watched it, I kept getting more and more involved. Before long, I was completely engrossed in the story. By the end, I’d soaked a tissue. But it was great because it had a happy ending. It’s not really a Christmas movie, but it’s perfect for the season.

4 stars (Really Liked It)

Desperately Seeking Santa
I turned this one on because I hoped I could enjoy a little Christmas fun and work on my laptop at the same time. There were times when I was rolling my eyes at the heroine of the story, who wasn’t very likable for a while. But Christmas can be about finding your better self, and she did, so that redeemed her. 🙂 The hero was cute, if not predictable, but his wider circle of friends and family made him more interesting, too. In the end, I wasn’t disappointed. A little bit of Christmas fun.

Win a Free Book!

 

Look at this fun event one of my fellow Romance Writers of America chapter mates is doing! She’s hosting a whole month of book giveaways and Little Miss Lovesick is on the list!

This next Sunday, December 9, my book and a couple of others will be listed on Lex’s 30 Days of Christmas. If you comment on that post (not this one) before midnight Pacific Time that day, you could win a copy of each of those books! Sweet!

Because romance is such a wide genre, Lex has grouped the authors/books so that you can check out her site on the days she is giving away the kind of books you like. For instance, the days that will feature books about male/female romances are Dec 6, 8, 9 (that’s me!), 11, 13, 14, 19, 23, 24, 27, 29, and 30. The other days will have a variety of other types of romances.

The heat level (amount of sex, etc. if you’re not a big romance reader) will vary. I know the authors on my day and their books are probably closer to the “sweeter” side like Little Miss Lovesick as opposed to say, erotica or erotic romance. (Again for non-romance readers, my book has “sensual” scenes but no sex scenes.)

So check out Lex’s 30 Days of Christmas – especially on the 9th! – and you might win some free books for your ereader!

Don’t have an ereader? You can order a print copy of my book here! And later this month, I will have a buy link here on my web site so that you can purchase autographed copies of Little Miss Lovesick for yourself or to give as gifts! Yay!
