Welcome Holiday Hoppers!!!

Welcome to the Holiday Blog Hop!

I’ve never done a blog hop before, so this is just as exciting for me as it is for all of you. I hope you enjoy this little stop-over. First – how about my cool theme – great colors, don’t you think? Next, check out a few posts in ‘Babble’. The good news is that I don’t post often – only about once a month – so if you do want to subscribe, you won’t be bombarded with e-mails from me.

Now comes the fun part. Read a few samples of my book, Better Off Without Him. Maybe you won’t like what you read – that’s okay. Really. I won’t even send anyone after you to extract revenge. Chick Lit is not for everyone. So if you’re a sci-fi or horror fan, just skip off to the next blog and we’ll call it even.
However – if you like what you’ve read, you can buy a copy to download or as a paperback and you can start enjoying Mona’s exploits right away. If you’d rather take a chance on winning a little something for the holidays, then you’re in luck. I’ll be giving away three digital copies (international) and one signed trade paperback (US only) to some lucky winners.

Now the big question. How do you BECOME a lucky winner? Well, here’s the thing. I’m not just a writer. I’m a reader as well, and I love finding great stories with characters I can laugh along with. So, to enter my giveaway, go to the Comment section and tell me the name of your favorite Chick Lit character and the title of the book she’s in. Also let me know if you want digital or paper (if you don’t tell me your preference, you’ll get thrown into the digital pile automatically).

See? Pretty easy, yes? And I’ll have lots of good suggestions for what to read in the long winter months ahead.

Not only that, but all of you winners will then be eligible to win a free Kindle Fire!

I don’t know how I’m going to pick a winner. Seriously. I haven’t a clue. I assume there’s a giant cyber-hat I can throw all the names in that will pick out winners a random. Not to worry – I’ll figure it out.

As for winning the Kindle Fire – the very efficient person who organized this Hop is in charge of that, so I’m sure she’ll have it all covered.

Okay – off you go. Enjoy the rest of your hopping and have a safe and happy whatever holiday you prefer!

    The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, that’s a good one. I can’t take Nicholas Sparks either, too sad.

    I like a lot, but I’m going to have to go with Lacey Terwilliger from Molly Harper’s book And One Last Thing. Absolutely hilarious! I also have to mention Heather Wells from Meg Cabot’s Heather Wells series just because I love it.

    Thanks for the the chance to win!

    Hi! My favorite chick-lit character is still Bridget Jones by a mile.

    I have to admit to having read the Twilight books but I hated Bella. The only female character I cared for was Alice and she’s not in the story as much as I’d like. I had to read them to decide that I didn’t like them though because that’s only fair.

    I’m not a fan of Nicholas Sparks because he ALWAYS makes me cry. He writes well and the stories are amazing but I hate to cry so we have a love hate relationship.

    I LOVE the Sookie Stackhouse books. Sookie is a sweetheart but I like Pam better. Though I have to say in the later books when Sookie starts telling someone to take a hike and actually doing things for herself that I love. Don’t want to ruin anything so check them out. The books beat the hell out of the tv show too.

    Charline Harris has another series too that’s just as good if not better. I love the character Lily Bard. She is AMAZING! She wins as my favorite chick lit character.

    Off for more hopping. a_breen87@yahoodotcom

    Oh, gosh, I’ve been reading the Sex and the City author, Candace What’s-her-name on and off for years, but I really like more driven heroines, than the fluff I sometimes see. And of course a good steamy sex scene is always a plus!

    Have a great Holiday Season!

    Only chick lit book I’ve read was Bridget Jones’s Diary and I really liked the quirky character Bridget (of course). Digital copy please, and thank you for participating in this wonderful contest.

    Hi Dee! Lately I’ve been liking short stories by Lisa Scott. Her stories are classified as romances, but she has some great, spunky main characters. Have fun with the blog hop and Happy Holidays!

    I don’t think it’s really chick lit but my favorite female hero is Stephanie Plum!

    I think I’d have to go with Lauren Dane’s, Erin Brown. Laid Bare is the name of the book that tells her story (book 1)…but she appears in the other Brown sibling series books too.

    Love the blog hop. Hmmm, I think my favorite chick-lit character would have to be Elizabeth Bennett. She was the model for all those underdog girls to come. Go Jane!

    Dee, Awesome post!

    I can’t narrow it down. I really like the four sister-friends in Nora Roberts Bride Quartet series, Parker, Emma, Laurel, and Mac. I’ve shared this post on FB. I’m on my way to tweet, and I’ve subscribed by e-mail so I can tweet in the future!

    The blog is really beautiful!
