Winners and the Last Christmas Contest

Congratulations to the winners of the Christmas romances.  Lisa Kleypas' Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor will go to Rob K. in Kalaheo, HI.  He's my first winner from Hawaii!  And Cheryl K. from Gilberts, IL won 'Twas the Night.  The books will go out in the mail this afternoon on my way to work.
This week's contest will be the last contest of 2010, so the books will all arrive before Christmas.  I have two last Christmas books to give away.  Donna VanLiere's The Christmas Journey takes a different look at Mary and Joseph's trip to Bethlehem.  It takes the gloss off a difficult journey and birth, while actually making it even more beautiful.   The publicist will be sending a copy of this book to the winner.






Or, you could win A Piggly Wiggly Christmas by Robert Dalby, the story of a small Southern town's Christmas tragedy and triumph.  The people of Second Creek, Mississippi always have an unusual view of life.  But, when a fire burns down many of the historic buildings on the town's square a week before Christmas, they have to find a way to bring joy and community back to the town.  

Would you like to win The Christmas Journey or A Piggly Wiggly Christmas?
You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at lholstine@yahoo.com. Your subject line should read either "Win Christmas Journey" or "Win Piggly Wiggly." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.

This contest will end a little sooner, since I'm going on Christmas vacation next week.  The contest ends Tuesday night, Dec. 14 at 6 PM MT.  The winners will be selected by random number generator. I'll notify the winners and mail the books the next day. Good luck!

And, I'll be kicking off 2011's contest year on Thursday night, January 6th, when I announce the first mysteries to be given away then.  Watch for the new giveaway!

Hope you have a happy upcoming Christmas vacation, Lesa! I know you'll have some good books to take with you. :)

Oh, I have tons of good books, Elizabeth. Actually, my mother is coming in to spend the holiday with me.

Thank you, Lesa, for all you do to inform many of us in the mystery blogosphere, and also to bring good cheer to our days.

Best wishes to you for the holidays, hope that it goes well for you, and that the Holstine cat family brings you good cheer, too.

Lesa said...

You're welcome, kathy. And, just because I'm going on vacation doesn't mean there won't be blogs to read. You need to continue to come back.

Best wishes to you, as well. This holiday may be a little rough, but, with my mother and those wonderful cats, I should find a great deal of cheer.

Lesa, hold your mother and cats closely, and remember the good memories and the love that you shared, and remember that you are cared about by many people, who wish you only the best.

Lesa said...

Thank you, Leevan. I hope you emailed me at lholstine@yahoo.com with your name and mailing address to enter the contests.

Lesa said...

Thank you, kathy. I will remember all the love, and your kind note. Happy holidays to you, and all those you love.

Happy New Year, Lesa. I enjoyed by book win from you and just posted by review of Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor. Here's the link.
