The authors over at the Chick Lit Chat HQ Facebook group are giving away some MASSIVE prizes just in time for the holidays! Head over to the group before Dec 9th for your chance to win one of 5 huge prizes valued at over $500!

I’ll have 2 lucky winners – One from my Newsletter (so YOU are already entered) and One from my Facebook Author page!

SNAG ANOTHER ENTRY FOR MY PRIZE HERE!

And in Other News…

The damn elves haven’t shown up so I’ll have to clean, cook, shop, wrap, and plan again this year. Seriously, elves? WTF?

In preparation for the holidays, I got a new hairdo and had my eyebrows done – SCARY  and slightly painful, to be honest. At one point, I had tears in my eyes and for some reason, I started salivating…weird, right?

But I made the best of it and sent a wickedly funny pic to my husband with no text attached while I was at the appointment. You know, to make him panic a little, like the good wife I am. 😉

Here are the during and after pics…

So that’s it for this lady for today. We’re expecting a deliciously big snowstorm this weekend, and in my opinion, it’s about time. It’ll finally look a lot like Christmas.

More to come later this month. Make sure you take care of yourselves during this busy season, my friends. Have some laughs, have some wine, see some friends, and get some sleep!

Okay, I’ll stop bossing you now.

Warmest wishes,

Melanie

The Royal Delivery is Here!

Hello All!

I’m pleased to announce that yesterday, at exactly 12:00 am, a healthy baby book was born, and so far, things are going really well.

In fact, this happened…March 7th

Very few things are as exciting for a writer as seeing the ‘orange tag’ on your new book. 🙂

Anyway, to celebrate, I’m giving away a Book Lover’s Prize Pack!

The prize includes: 

  • one fun book-loving throw pillow
  • A book of teas from around the world
  • possibly the coolest bookmark ever.

Click on the image below before March 21st for your chance to win. It’s SUPER easy – once you’re on my Facebook Author Page, you just need to comment, like, and/or share the matching post to be entered. 
Royal Delivery Giveaway

So, that’s it for me today. I’m off to get started on my next book. Cause, you know, I’m crazy like that.

HUGE thank yous to everyone who has read, reviewed, and told your friends about Tessa & Arthur! Without you, instead of being called an author, I’d be ‘that crazy lady who sits around all day in her pajamas talking to imaginary people.’

Happy reading!

Melanie

Wishing you Love, Peace, and Happiness!

And by Happiness, I mean a $100 Amazon Gift Card…

Click on the link below to go to my Facebook page. Comment, like, and share the matching image pinned to the top of the page for your chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card!

Contest open worldwide & ends January 1st (so you can buy yourself that gift you didn’t get that you REALLY wanted).

I Have One Quick and Easy Favour to Ask of You…

My dear friend, the VERY talented Kelly Collins, is working on a new series, set in a cozy, mountain town of Aspen Cove, Colorado. I’ve had the pleasure of reading the books as she’s writing them, and as far as I’m concerned, she can’t write them fast enough. I crave my escape to Aspen Cove like Homer Simpson craves beer.

She’s got the first book, One Hundred Reasons, in the Kindle Scout Program and needs your vote so Amazon will publish the story. If she wins, everyone who votes gets a free copy of this beautifully told page turner. Trust me, you do NOT want to miss out on this.

Click here to vote now (It takes about 20 seconds and you can cross ‘good deed’ off your to-do list today).

VOTE HERE5b3b7f7d907ffab03cf4c44c31e5ae69faf324ae

That’s it for me today. I have TWO big announcements coming soon, so don’t forget to check back here!

Happy holidays!

Melanie
