This special Holiday Entertaining Book Contest will last a little longer, until Thursday, Nov. 20 at 6 PM MT. This contest has a few rules. Hatchette Book Group restricts winners to the U.S. and Canada only. No P.O. Boxes. (Sorry!) One entry per person, please.

To enter the contest, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: Your subject line should read, Win "Holiday Entertaining". Your message should include your name and mailing address.

The contest will close at Nov. 20 at 6 PM MT when Jim draws five names. Hatchette will then send the set of books to the five winners.
