What Twelve Books of Christmas Giveaway?

Those of you who subscribe to my “almost monthly” newsletter know that yesterday was the final day to submit an entry for the Twelve Books of Christmas Giveaway.

Random.org selected winners today and now the books on on their way to the post office via Proman.

All winners have been notified by email. Congratulations to them and thanks to everyone who took the time to enter or just to check in and tell me their favorite holidays.

The results were not surprising. The giveaway required readers to give their address and tell me their favorite holiday. Can you guess which happy day came out on top?

Yep, Christmas, with 154 people choosing it as their favorite holiday.

But which holiday came out second? Can you guess?

Let’s make this the Thirteen Books of Christmas Giveaway, shall we? Make a guess which holiday took second place, and I’ll let random.org choose one more winner. Your answer doesn’t have to be right, you just have to make a guess.

And you do NOT need to add your mailing address with your comment. We don’t want those Grinchy spy bots adding you to their coal-in-your-stocking lists. I’ll contact the winner privately for their address.

A few rules:

  1. You must have a North American address, which you will send me if you’re the winner.
  2. You must make a guess, even a wrong one, for which holiday was #2 of all the entries I received.
  3. One winner will receive a copy of Let There Be Suspects, set at Christmas time and the second book in my Ministry is Murder series. These copies are new, but they were published awhile ago, so they are showing their age.
  4. Random.org will choose a winner on Saturday after 5 PM.

Just one more thing. Everyone who enters must have a happy holiday.

    July 4th because it’s the first real holiday of the summer.

    Easter

  14. Margie Shaw on December 17, 2019 at 1:44 pm

    I’m going to guess and say Halloween is the 2nd favorite holiday just because I know a lot of people enjoy it. I’m not one of them.

  15. Susan Heim on December 17, 2019 at 9:19 pm

    My guess is Valentine’s Day!

  16. Nancy C Lepri on December 18, 2019 at 11:46 am

    I would guess Mardi Gras for some of your books are set in Louisiana, but my second choice would be Valentine’s Day, if you accept second choices!

    Wishing you and Proman a very blessed Christmas and a happy, healthy 2020. Thank you for giving me the pleasure of reading and reviewing your novels!

      Have a wonderful Christmas, Nancy. And thanks for your kind words.

    I would think Thanksgiving. But, I bet it’s Halloween.

  18. Kate C on December 22, 2019 at 7:39 am

    I guess that the answer would be Thanksgiving, but I like Easter, and the end of snow and cold weather!
    I hope your Christmas is a wonder filled time for you and yours.
