  1. Happy Holiday Hopping, Sarah! I'd love to win #4!!
    As for a big present, I hope Santa brings me news that one (or more) of my books has become a bestseller, which in turn brings loads money, which in turn brings me into my boss' office with my resignation in hand.

    Come on, Santa. I've HAVE been a pretty good girl. :)

  2. Because I've left it on a few others and I can't seem to help myself Hoppy Holidays to you Sarah! #4 would be really great.

    So holiday gift I want but am 100% sure I'm not getting: plane tickets back home for the holidays for me, the husband and the pet.


  3. Blog hoppinh and id like santa to give me (but i know he won't) and iPad2 i'd like to try and win "friendship on fire" you can reach me at

  4. I would really like a diamond and topaz ring but I KNOW my hubby...I mean Santa...won't bring it.

    Please enter me into pack 1 and 2.

    Are you editor for a book/ebook company or are you independent? Wish I was to the point where I could give you something to read but I am a good year or so out. Am taking writing classes and am learning a lot!

  5. The Runaway looks like a great read. I'll have to put it on my Goodreads list. I would so love a new sewing machine with all the embroidery bells and whistles but alas I don't think Santa will be able to fit it on his sleigh.

  6. I wish I would get some new clothes and boots for Christmas. But some new nooks would also be nice.

  7. I'd liek to try for prize pack 2.

    I'd like an IPad but I don't think I'll get one.

  8. Cool contest. I'll go for prize 3 or 4.

    My big holiday wish is for world peace...wait. No, I mean to be world emporer. Yeah, that's it.

    Come on, Santa! Bring me that crown. :-p

  9. I would surely like a bigger house! Hmmm...hope Santa is listening :)
    And I would LOVE #4!!
    Cool idea Sarah--great contest.

  10. Hope you get a bunch of views--wishing you success with the hop! :)

  11. For some Scavenger hunt fun, follow me to my Holiday Hop!
    Come on! Let's have some hoppin' good fun!

  12. Throw my name in the hat for #2 & #4, please!

    My holiday wish would be for a jacuzzi tub, or even one of those mat thingies that you can put into any tub to make it bubbly. I only mentioned that to my hubby once, so very doubtful that I'll get it!

  13. I'm interested in 3) Edwina Ray thriller ebook pack. The Runaway really sounds interesting. My holiday wish would be to get my own personal writing room built in my back yard :)

  14. Prize pack number 4 please. Editing is valuable to me :).

    I would love a iPad/Smart Phone.

    But doubt I will get one until I save up myself

  15. I would love to win #1. Sounds like a great story! What I am wanting for Christmas but doubting I will get is a Gift Card for more books! I love to read and just blast through books and then read them over and over again. :-)

  16. I would like to enter to win #1 or #2. What I'd like for Christmas, but unfortunately won't get, is a lot of time with my family.

  17. I would like personal driver. I can't drive due to health reasons and it would make getting my kids and my self around so much easier.
    I would like to win #1 or 2. Thank you & happy holidays

  18. Please enter me for prize #1. As for that big gift -- I need two million dollars, tax free. I promise to use it responsibly.

  19. Well, I secretly wish for an IPad, but I know for sure I'm not getting it because I'm known for my love of the real book, not the e-version of it. I'm one of those people that prefers to pay a few extra bucks for the paperback, just to feel the book between my hands, smell the ink and the rustling sound of turned pages. I actually want to see how long I resist without an electronic reading device AND without a twitter account, which I resist with all my being.
    Happy Holidays, Sarah!

  20. Hi, Sarah, I'd love to win #2 or #4. The big gift: I'd like an indoor saline swimming pool with a house to go with it.

    Happy holidays to you!

  21. Hi, Sarah, I'd love to win #2 or #4. The big gift: I'd like an indoor saline swimming pool with a house to go with it.

    Happy Holidays

    I want my mentally retarded brother, (I am his legal guardian) to become a mentally functioning person who doesn't have to live in a group home or take medication, or spend Christmas in some pysche ward, like this year). Ain't never gonna happen, but miracles do happen sometimes...Happy Holidays, Sarah!

  24. #1 and #2 would be my choice.

    I would love for my best friend to become a Christian.


  25. Thank you for the excellent giveaway. I hope you have a joyous and safe holiday season. I would love to be entered for #1 or #2

    My big holiday wish would be for my granddaughter to get her trach and stomach tube taken out early. She had major throat surgery eight weeks ago and is doing great, but the trach is causing her problems. She's 2 1/2. And if my daughter and her family could find a home that would be great too. Her and I both lost our homes in the EF5 tornado that went through our hometown in May.

  29. Well...I would love it if Santa would load up some of his elves come to my house and build a library edition onto my house. But somehow I don't think there is a tree big enough for that to fit under!

    And I would love to win prize pack 3 or 1. Thanks for the chance!

  39. Thank you for sharing in this wonderful holiday hop. I am a reader and all of these books and authors are new to me so 1, 2, or 3 ebooks would be just dandy to me. I would love to receive a Kindle Fire, but unless the god's of random have my number I do not expect one; but hey, a girl can dream :) Have a joyous and happy holiday.

  40. I am a book aholic so any of the books will do 1 2 or3. I would love you to edit my book...but I haven't gotten around to writing it yet. Just can't seem to get it from my head to my hands.

    What would I love for Christmas... A tiny house in the Mountains with a blazing fire in the wood stove, and Jack by my side watching the snowfall.
