Holidaze (& a Contest)

It’s hard to believe next week is Thanksgiving (for those of us in the U.S). Seems like just yesterday we were ringing in 2011, now we’re about to ring in 2012. The years rush by so fast, it’s enough to make your head spin, ala Linda Blair in the Exorcist but on speed.  I’d barely grabbed the candy off the shelves for Halloween when the stockers started pushing me aside to make room for the Christmas displays!  Even the local radio station has started its round-the-clock holiday music….which doesn’t quite help with the Christmas spirit when it’s still 80 degrees outside. And, the department stores, along with the grocery stores are a mad house…almost makes me want to lock myself away until it’s all over…almost. 

Okay, I confess, I’m not really complaining too much. I--like 99% of the world--love the end of year holidays, because it means lots and lots of great food and sweets! My kitchen is going to be a wonderland in itself because of all the baking my kids and I will do.  In fact, I’m planning to include some fresh baked treats in two baskets I’m giving away in a contest.
From now until December 15th, I’m having a contest to help promote my novel Forget Me Not. You don't have to go to my blog but if you want to enter the contest you just have to email me the answer to this question:  

In the story Forget Me Not, Casey is on the phone with her sister-in-law. With Scott on the extension, Casey says something in Spanish to Jennifer. What does she say?

 Again, email me the answer at TerriMo2 @ yahoo.com (remove the spaces) and you'll be placed into the drawing to win one of two gift baskets. Basket one will contain a Kindle, some chocolate and the yummy baked snacks and Basket two will contain a $25 VISA gift card, a mouse pad, chocolate, and some yummy home-baked snacks. ;-)
The drawing will be midnight, December 15th and the baskets will be mailed by the 18th to arrive by Christmas....hopefully.
If you haven’t picked up your copy of Forget Me Not, you can order it here: http://www.decadentpublishing.com/product_info.php?products_id=361&osCsid=3ef4da97661f7125bf680f5f9fb4e060

Have a wonderful and joyous holiday season!!

Hi Terri,

Mmmmm...fresh-baked holiday ggodies! What a great giveaway idea!

And I want to read Forget Me Not anyway, so I'm off to the virtual book store!

What a great post, Terri - and great promotional idea. This is an incentive to figure out how to download non-Kobo bookstore books to my Kobo (it can be done, I just need to learn how). To give you a clue, I have problems downloading even from the Kobo bookstore (LOL).

Thank you Sarah. One of the baked goods we make every year is actually a no-bake cookie...so it's not even baked haha...but oh so good!

Judith, I have no idea what a Kobo is. ;-o

Terri the year end does seem to come quicker each year. I love the holidays starting with Halloween through New Years! It does seem as if the stores are putting out the holiday items earlier and earlier each year. Happy Holidays!!!!
