Warm Up Your Winter…with a giveaway!

So here we are, stuck in the middle of winter with no end in sight. I don’t know about you, but around this time of year, I begin to wonder what we’ll do if spring doesn’t arrive. Can you imagine perpetual snow and ice?  Me, neither.


Actually, scratch that. Thanks to that overactive writer’s streak I possess, I can imagine it all too well…and it ain’t pretty. shudder

Anyway, my point is this: about all we can do to get through these cold, bleak months is hunker down, try to stay as warm as we can, and find something to help us pass the time…amIright? So to help you on all those fronts, I’ve put together a little care package for a lucky winner:


There’s a pair of slippers crocheted by moi, a tin of my new favourite tea (a flavoured yerba mate…mmmm!), some chocolate, some swag, and a signed copy of Sins of the Angels (the first book in my Grigori Legacy series)–everything you could possibly need to keep warm and occupied for at least a couple of evenings! And no, you don’t have to live in a wintry place to win…this one’s open to anyone in the world. 😉

So what are you waiting for? Enter now using the Rafflecopter form below…and good luck! 🙂

P.S. Remember to share the warmth and let your friends know about the giveaway, too! 

Terms & conditions: One random winner to be drawn at close of giveaway. Open internationally. Must be 18 or older to enter.

    My favourite winter activity is really just staying inside, under a blanket, and relaxing. I don’t much like the cold at all!

    I really like winter time because there’s no flying bugs/bee’s. lol It’s cool outside and we might even have a few overcast/rainy/cloudy days. I love winter even though we don’t get snow and have very little rain here in Las Vegas.

    I like winter, I just wish the daylight was longer. Not going to happen. My favorite activity is getting to use the oven to bake, as in the summer it heats up the house too much.

    I hate driving in the snow and ice, so staying indoors and spending my time absorbed in a good book is the best thing ever.

  13. nicholskathy Avatar

    A perfect winters day treat! Thx so much for the great opportunity!!! I just really, really love winter my favorite thing to do during the winter is to “snow watch” watching the wonderful white stuff floating, drifting or whipping around. Since I became disabled watching is about all I can anymore.

    So far winter hasn’t really come but in the form of two bad wind storms and two way before christmas that tried to drown us, or was us down the hill across the valley and thru the delta to the Pacific. So we will see if Feb, March or April bring snow, or at least some more rain to help with the drought.
    Thanks for putting together another fun give away.

    Always depends on the weather…
    Taking long walks with my dog is definitely my favorite for every season. During winter i love to stay inside and read good books or watch a good movie.
    And during summer my activities change but most of the time I have to stay at home since I can’t afford to travel that much…

    I love winter! I love sledding and building snowmen with the kids. When I was a kid, the neighborhood I grew up in was filled with kids of all ages. All of our yards were connected and we would start at one end of the street and roll until we couldn’t roll anymore. The dad’s and older boys would then finish up the base and we would start the next. Our snowmen were huge.

    We don’t really have strong winters here in The Netherlands. Or real strong Summers. Still. When it is cold outside I like to enjoy a good hardy soup. Split Pea soup. It’s a dutch tradition to eat when its cold outside.

    I am very happy to watch the snowfall from inside. It’s nice and peaceful, barring blizzards, but I prefer seeing it behind glass, holding a fuzzy cat.

    I guess my favorite winter activity is to wait for it to pass… a warm blanket, a tender cuddle and some dark urban fantasy. Welcome additions, but necessary, inclus

    Your giveaway is the perfect winter escape. The weather here in NOLA has been bouncing up and down the thermostat but the last few weeks have been mostly cold. *shivers* I’ve been staying indoors as much as possible and making a dent in my TBR list. 🙂

    Sitting on my bed or love seat reading, crocheting or watching a movie with my kids…………I DISLIKE winter and will stay inside as much as I can, not to mention I’m almost terrified to drive when there’s snow on the ground thanks to other people on the road and previous accidents they have caused me

    I am not a winter person so I like to curl up the couch with a cat or two and read or watch a movie.

    My favorite part of winter is watching the snow falling while drinking hot chocolate and reading a book (you have to read a chapter and look at the snow after that for bit. I haven’t mastered watching the snow and reading at the same time. I’m not that good yet!). Although I’m not fond of the extreme cold, I do like a good snowy winter.

    Happy winter everyone wherever you are! Thank you for the chance to enter the giveaway 😀

    Winter here in Ireland – your freezing one moment, soaked the next, or it’s mild & sunny. 4 seasons in 1 day.

    I actually really love the winter. I’m weird. I know. I love to go snow-shoeing in the woods and coming back to a fire and hot chocolate. I love sitting with a cup of tea and watching the snow fall. I love the quite nights and the crisp mornings…. It’s my second favourite season ever.

    Tea and chocolate, I couldn’t imagine a better way to spent the rest of the winter 🙂

    Oh for the winter I enjoy cozying up in front of the fire place with a bright blazing fire. My girls (2 german shepards) usually curl up with me (they love fires). And we watch tv or read. 🙂
