Attention, Bloggers, Writers, People Who Love Free Books, and People Who Like Christmas and The Holidays In General, Plus Everybody Else.

So that means you.

It may seem a bit early for holiday-related thingamajiggery, but Thanksgiving is only 13 days away as I write this and that means Christmas is... well, Christmas is already here, judging by the ads on TV and the fact that the rich mall near our house already has the big Christmas tree up in the faux town square they've set up across from the fancy chocolatier's. 

Which is all a way of introducing the...


The Merry Christmas To All 
(e)Book A Day 
Traveling 
Blogathon 
(of Doom!)
 

NOTE: I added the "of Doom!" part to make it more dramatic.  It's not really going to doom anyone.  Hopefully.  I don't know.

Here's how it works:

1.  It begins on 11/23, and continues every weekday until December 24th.

2.  Bloggers who want to take part pick a day or day(s) and post on that day; participating bloggers who don't have a post scheduled that day will mention the Merry Christmas... etc. (of Doom!) on their blog. (You can do this simply by putting up a badge and the schedule in your link box, if you want. No need to post every day!)

3.  The theme of all posts is "Something to do with the holidays."

4.  Participating bloggers will give away one free (e)book to a randomly-chosen commenter on their post on the day they post.

5.  All participating bloggers will be listed at the end of each post with (A) a thumbnail of their book, (B) a link to where readers can buy the book.

As for me:  I will be taking any days that are not taken by other bloggers, and posting my (now)-annual Christmas story, a "Nick and Other Sexy Cop" adventure I'm calling:

"Twas The Fight Before Christmas,  
or, A Visit From Ain't Nick."

Featuring the return of...

 You know who...

(That's
Sexy Cop, in case you didn't know who.)


 That'll begin on the 23rd.

Which means, I will be giving away a free ebook almost every day from 11/23 to 12/24, so check back here a lot.

I always leave Fridays free, so I'd prefer 11/30, 12/7, 12/14, or 12/31. Not all those days, but whichever one no one else wants.

Briane P said...

I'll put you down for 11/30.

Sandra Almazan said...

Can people who don't post every day or have some days blocked off for other topics still participate?

Andrew Leon said...

Hey, what about me? I said yes.

Cindy said...

Put me down for Dec 3rd. One e-copy of Vallar.

Michael Offutt, Speculative Fiction Author said...
