Free Book Holiday: Wish Upon A Star


It’s my blogiversary! I started my blog two years ago this month, and getting to know so many of you has been the best part about it.

I’m going away for Christmas, so to celebrate the holidays and my blogiversary, I’m hosting an end-of-year blowout wishfest for the new year!

Prize: $10 Amazon gift certificate, PAX mug, or an autographed book of your choice from my backlist! There will be three winners (each winner may choose one of the prize options listed above). How to play? Post your wish for the new year! Maybe magic will happen….

I’ll start.

I wish………
–there would be a great big blizzard so that I wouldn’t have to go anywhere for a week (and I would, of course, be stocked up on all necessities at the time).
–there would be no more wars, anywhere.
–my parents’ health was better.
–I could go to England again, and that when I got there, they would be driving on the right side of the road.
–my children grow up healthy and happy.
–I would sell lots of books this year!!
–I had sheep………

Post as many wishes as you want, but only one wish per day. I’ll be back Monday, January 1st, with the winners! So c’mon, wish upon a star with me! :mrgreen:
