Know what I love? December! It’s my favorite month of the year. Why? The semester ends, which means I have more writing time (yay!), plus it usually snows, plus it’s Christmas and my birthday, and lots of other family members’ birthdays too (8 of us total), and there are Christmas cookies, A Charlie Brown Christmas (and the Vince Guaraldi soundtrack), and PRESENTS! Who doesn’t love presents??
Imagine that house up there is labeled “being a YA author.” Aside from my kid, being a YA writer is the best present I’ve ever been given, a house-sized giftie full of all the great things I’ll tell you about in the 12 Days of YA (and there will be no partridges or pears, though both are lovely). I could go on and on about all this crazy amazing life I love, so I thought I’d share the joy with you, just for fun. PLUS, in the spirit of giving, I’m going to give *you* gifts. And that matters even more!
I’ll give away six sets of my books (one copy each of SKY and BEAUTIFUL MUSIC) plus I will *also* give away six of my favorite YA novels—titles to follow, because I’m still choosing—one (set of) book(s) for each day of the 12 Gifts. How to enter? Comment on any of the 12 posts. The posts will run December 3-7, December 10-14, and December 17-18. Winners will be selected at random, so please put your e-mail address in your comment so I know where to find you if you win. If I hear back from you once you’re chosen, I’ll mail your book(s) before the world ends on December 21. If I don’t hear from you, books will be mailed after the world starts again, but it will be in the new year, once I’m back from my holiday travels.
Come back on Monday for the first of the 12 gifts of YA (in no particular order). Can’t wait!
