It's time again to make a submission call for a few holiday festivities here on my blog.
Coming Soon: October 30, 2012: "It Was The Scariest Thing" Megapost
December 4 and 6, 2012: Holiday Showcase I & IIThese two days, I will be posting spotlights for holiday-related books (featuring Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, New Years, Boxing Day, etc), of any genre or format.
Each book will have its own post and comments field, so you can feel free to do a giveaway if you want, which you will administer. I will post one an hour or two (or every half hour, if I get a lot of submissions) each day, from 8am until about 6-8pm (first come, first served). (Giveaways should run until 11.59pm that night, regardless of post time, with winners announced the next day.)
If you'd like to participate, email me, including your book's blurb and cover along with your pic and bio, and all the links you want - particularly a buy link. If you want to do a giveaway of any form (the book in question, a different book, a giftcard, whatever), you should include that, as well.
You can also include an excerpt of about 300-800 words (max, please), if you wish, but nothing too explicit, please. (Aim for about PG-13, though your links, etc, don't have to be.)
I'd really like to punch the heck out of this to get the December season off to a bang, so the more books the merrier, I think. Please, send me any holiday/winter related books, and I will start scheduling them as they come in.
Email me at anneholly2010 (at) gmail (dot) com by December 1 or 2, please.
As usual, these shots are open to all genres, all forms of publishing, etc. It is open to both authors and publishers. As usual, these posts will be promoted on my social media, etc, and may involve some extra Facebook elements. Please feel free to share this offer with anyone who might be interested. All are welcome!
Also: BOLO in 2013 for calls for Valentine's Day and St Patrick's Day showcases, as well.
