Holiday Shopping Giveaway!

Kelly and I have long been proponents of books as holiday gifts for friends and family of all ages, which not only helps support the publishing industry, but enriches minds and sometimes draws in new readers.

Last year, some of you may remember, my 2009 release, The ABC’s of Kissing Boys, made’s “Great Gifts for Teens” List.

Well, this year we are excited to report that Kelly’s 2007 release, Graffiti Girl, has been earmarked by for a
bargain price just in time for the holidays of only $3.98.

In celebration of the season, and hoping that you will consider books for your gifts, too, we will be giving one commenter a $10.00 gift card. All you have to do to be entered is tell us a book that you’re either planning to purchase as a gift or hope you receive!

Best wishes to all who enter...and check back on Monday, December 9th to see the winner!

I love giving books as gifts. I have purchased Let It Snow by L. Myracle, J. Green, and M. Johnson. I hope to receive Matched as a gift. Everyone seems to love it and I want to see what it is all about.

Wow - great contest!

And I agree with it - I think giving books as gifts is really smart - it's the gift that keeps on giving, you know? I try and get my goddaughter books as much as possible, but she is very difficult to sit down and read ... sigh.

For Christmas, I want the UK covers of the Entire Vampire Academy Series! That would be awesome! :)

Thanks for the contest! :)

I'm giving A Soldier's Night Before Christmas by Trisha Holland and Christine Ford to my nephew who is missing his uncle while he's away in the Army. I couldn't help but get teary eyed when I read it and know it will make my nephew feel good to know his uncle gets Christmas too, no matter where he may be.
