My Christmas Contest - from Kate Walker

Okay so I'm going to let myself mention the C word. After all, it is only . . . eeek - five weeks + to the day. So today I'm announcing my big Christmas Contest - and your chance to win a

Christmas Stocking Stuffed with Books

Would you like a special romance readers’ Christmas Stocking stuffed full of books written by some of your favourite authors — or authors new to you that might become new favourites in the coming year?That’s the prize I have on offer in my special Christmas Contest!I have two prizes of Christmas stockings stuffed full of books to give away to then winners of this contest — so far the stockings contain signed copies of:
Christmas, Kids and Kisses, the Christmas 3 in 1 By Request in which my novel The Christmas Baby’s Gift is reprinted
Accepting the Boss’s Proposal by Natasha Oakley
The Italian Doctor’s Bride by Margaret McDonagh
White-Hot by Trish Wylie

And I’m adding new titles all the time — I won’t stop till the stockings are full. Friends and fellow authors are donating books all the time, right up until the closing date.
If you want to know more about the books I’m adding to the stockings, keep checking my blog to find out what’s happening.

So how do you win this great Christmas reading stocking?It's easy - just check out the Contest page on my web site, find the two easy trivia questions and hunt down the answers to them - the answers are on my site somewhere.
Then send your answers to me - email links are on my site too - with CHRISTMAS STOCKING CONTEST in your email subject line.
There are no runners’ up prizes in this contest. But if you want more chances to win, then why not join my Newsletter mailing list where you will have twelve more chances to win in the 12 Days of Christmas Contest that starts in December. My newsletter members already know about this - so if like them you want to be the first to know what's happening and have chances to win the special prizes I have just for my mailing list members - then there's a link to the group in the sidebar of my blog or you can find it on most pages on my web site.

So what's the cat doing here? Well, for those of you who don't already - Sid's the guy who makes you a winner! When a contest comes to an end, I put the names of all the entrants with the correct answer on to separate pieces of paper - and then I add a cat crunchie to each name. Then Sid goes to work! The first name he eats a crunchie from is the winner - and the next . . .
Of course Sid is looking forward to there being plenty of entries to these contests, so why not make a cat very happy? Good luck!

That cat turns up everywhere! And work? Eating crunchies? Nice work if you can get it, Sid!

Count on a book for the contest, Kate. I'll post one to you.

Cute cat. The contest sounds great and I'm going to make sure I enter! We could all use more books to curl up with in winter.

Thank you Anne! I wasn't going to ask you as you contributed last time. I'm aiming for some new authors - but a brand new Anne McAllister title is always welcome in anyone's stocking!

Hi diva - yes he is cute and he knows it! Though he would prefer that you described him as handsome ;-) I hope you do enter the contest - I already have some more titles to add to the ones I posted so if you check out my blog you'll see how the prize is growing

Great contest! Also, the cat is adorable! Sid is a great name! I did enter your contest and the books you have already included in the stockings look fantastic!

Happy holidays to you! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
