This is one of those crazy weeks where I hop from one thing to the next, trying frantically to get everything done on time. I'm hyper, scattered, drinking cup after cup of tea... but it's all good. :~)

Why am I so hyped? Well, mostly it's because of the Harlequin Historical Holiday Giveaway. This is such a great contest -- eighteen days of giveaways, a different author each day, and at the end there's a Grand Prize of a Kindle Fire. My day is December 11th, but I urge you to enter every day -- lots of prizes to win, and the more often you enter, the better your chance of winning the Kindle Fire. To get to a calendar with live links to the author sites, click on the calendar or the link above. To read the official rules, go here.

What else? Well, the Fall In Love All Over Again Giveaway Hop from Reading Romances is open for two more days -- today and tomorrow. Hop on over there for a chance at tons of prizes. As part of the hop, some Harlequin Historical authors are doing their own giveaway. To hop on over and enter that as well, go here.

Then there's the Community Open House from December 10th - 14th. This is a week-long party with (guess what?) lots of prizes! I don't have specific info yet, but the Harlequin Historical authors will have a chat sometime on the 11th.

Whew. Busy, busy, busy. I hope you will have a chance to stop by some or all of these events. :)

    I'm chiming in late, but I'm sure the Historical giveaway was a big success.
