Journey into the Lives of Women, One Story at a Time

The Christmas Wedding Quilt Giveaway

GiveawayThis past week I mailed out more than 8,000 newsletters with links to a new Shenandoah Album Christmas story, Nine Patch Christmas. If you received one of them, I hope you enjoyed the story. I loved catching up with Helen, family and friends. If you didn’t receive it, it’s not too late to sign up for my mailing list. I’m sending the newsletter to new subscribers every few days to be sure they can read the story, too. Nine Patch Christmas goes away on January 6th to return some day in the future.

This week, I’m still feeling the Christmas spirit. I hope you are, too, as this unexpectedly warm December threatens a white Christmas for many who have their fingers crossed for snow. So to compensate for the lack of fluffy white stuff? This week I’m giving away ten copies of The Christmas Wedding Quilt,* an anthology with three novellas that I did for Christmas 2013 with authors Janice Kay Johnson and Sarah Mayberry. My novella? Let It Snow.

You see the connection, right? I’ll pause while you sing or at least hum the tune for a moment.

This giveaway is only open to readers with a U.S. address.  I apologize to my U.K. and Canadian readers, but mailing a print book means filling out complex custom forms and triple postage out of country, and this time of year, that’s just not possible. I hope that very soon both Amazon UK and Amazon.ca will allow us to gift an ebook through their stores. That would make giveaways so much more fun for everyone. But right now, that option doesn’t exist. I’ll keep my eyes open and the moment it does? I will have an international giveaway just for you.

To enter for your copy, tell me the best gift you’re giving this holiday season. Giving! Your homemade Christmas cookies? An hour of babysitting? A smile for the Ebenezer Scrooge next door who needs one every day? Something a grandchild is hoping for? Please email your response here, and next week I’ll list the winners and some of your responses–without names attached. The winners will be chosen by my old buddy random.org, because honestly, how could I possibly choose without random’s impartial help?

Please be sure to include your address. I’ll delete entries and addresses after the giveaway ends, and you won’t be added to any lists. I hate it when that happens. Comments are great, too, but don’t forget, I’ll only be choosing winners from the emails I receive at the above address since I’ll need your email address to notify you.

T’is the season of giving and I am delighted to share copies with my lucky readers. Meantime?

Let It Snow! (But not here in Florida, please.)

    I’m giving pillows to All neices and nephews this Christmas

      Sandra, I am sure they’ll be delighted. Make sure you also email this to the address in my blog along with your own address so you’ll be eligible for the drawing.

        can’t get the link to work

        • Emilie on December 17, 2015 at 8:14 pm

          I’m sorry. Some browsers seem to be blocking the link. To prevent spamming. The email is giveaway (at sign) and then my first and last names.com Unfortunately if I write it correctly here, that gets picked up by spammers, too. If that’s not clear, just go to my website under contact and use that form for your response. That will work, too.

    I am giving homemade bread inreusable ceramic bread pans to the neighbors in our complex.

    • Emilie Richards on December 16, 2015 at 6:58 am

      Thanks for that great idea. I bet your neighbors will love this. Now, make sure you email this response to the address I gave in my blog ([email protected] etc.) so that you’ll be included in the drawing.

    I love to give books. Until you asked, I hadn’t realized that I’m giving several people books this year. It’s fun to match the book to the person.

    • Emilie on December 16, 2015 at 12:07 pm

      Connie, of course an author loves it when people give books. I hope you’ll email this response so you can enter the contest. The right email address is in the blog.

    I got that book, when it first came out. I am sure the winners will enjoy it.
    I have been making pillowcases to wrap my gifts in. Quick, easy, and appreciated by young and old!

    • Emilie on December 16, 2015 at 12:08 pm

      Pillowcases! Fantastic idea. And a great way to use up scraps, right? Especially fat quarters.

    I’m giving the gift of love. My sister just passed away and I promised her I would look after her two sons and grandchildren. It will be a sad Christmas, but I will try to share as many memories growing up with their mother as I can.

    • Emilie Richards on December 23, 2015 at 4:28 pm

      Pam, that will be the best gift you could give, but I’m so sorry about your sister.

    I gave some friends an evening of shopping alone. I watched their six children (ages 6 months to 10 years) and made them Swedish pancakes. I think I enjoyed it as much as they did…great kids (although a little noisy at time)…got in some coloring and story telling time. 🙂

    • Emilie on December 17, 2015 at 8:15 pm

      I love all the gifts you’ve thought of. This is a creative bunch.

  7. Linda Snider on December 17, 2015 at 11:26 am

    I am giving a sewing machine to my granddaughter who recently asked me to teach her to see. Right up my alley since she is already an avid reader thanks to me.

    Flannel pillowcases for my nieces in Michigan. (I already own a copy of The Christmas Wedding Quilt, so I’m not entering the drawing, but thanks for the opportunity!)
