Win a Kindle!! Jingle Bell Book Hop & Giveaways!

Thursday, December 18, 2014


Welcome to the Jingle Bell Book Hop! I'm pleased to take part in this UNIQUE event with some amazing authors! The great part about this hop? Everyone gets a book AND you get a chance to win a Kindle Fire HD 6!

I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida about five years ago and it's really taken me some time to adjust to the holiday season here: shopping in shorts, Christmas at the beach, running the AC while opening gifts . . . but now I wouldn't have it any other way! No more white Christmases for me!



In our family, we started a little tradition to visit the beach every Christmas and make a sand Christmas tree kind of like this one by Coastal Inspirations. It's fun to include these little traditions that the kids love!


Now, the good stuff! Bring on the prizes:

Giveaway 1:

  5. Melanie! Thank you so much for being a part of our hop! I hope you get a good turn out. I adore your Christmas beach memories. I've spent most of my life in the mountains, so I'm always like, "What do others do for Christmas when it's warm?" haha I love the pictures you shared. So awesome!
    I'd love to try the first in your steampunk series. I've been itching to read some steampunk of late. Thank you again for being here!

  7. Merry Christmas, Melanie! I can totally relate to you changing from snow to sand. I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia and moved to the States when I married. So I went from beaches to now cold weather and snow. I always look forward to making a snowman, no matter how tiny it is! I'm still a kid at heart <3

    Hmmm, your books all look good. I think I'd love to try the first in your steampunk series. Thanks!

  11. So jealous! I would love to have a winterless winter...I'm in Georgia and even though our winters are no where near as cold as the North's I always feel like I'm going to freeze to death. I would love to read Lady Macbeth, Daughter of Ravens.

    Thank you!
