So, there will be five lucky winners. This contest will run from Nov. 30 to Thursday, December 11, ending at 6 PM MT. No entries will be valid after 6 PM on Dec. 11, so I can provide Hatchette with the list of winners on Dec. 12, and they can get the books in the mail.

This special December Holiday Giveaway has a few rules. Hatchette Book Group restricts winners to the U.S. and Canada only. No P.O. Boxes. (Sorry!) You can enter once for each holiday, if you so choose.

To enter the contest, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: Pick the holiday books you'd like to receive. Your subject line should read, either, Win "Christmas" or Win "Hanukkah" or Win "Kwanzaa". Your message should include your name and mailing address.

The contest will close at Dec. 11 at 6 PM MT when Jim draws five names. Hatchette will then send the set of books to the five winners.

Thank you to Hatchette! Their website is
