Stacey Joy Netzel Interviews ME... Plus a Special Giveaway!

Howdy marvelous readers!

Stacey Joy Netzel, one of my best author-blogger buddies (remember my reviews for Shattered Trust and Lost in Italy?—those were from her!), was kind enough to interview me at her blog today! Stacey's an absolute doll—SUCH a nice and beautiful person in general—and her books, with spunky and equally heartfelt characters and toe-warming romance, are some of my favorites, too.

Don't miss out!

Wanna read about Books à la Mode's genesis and development, my super-secret approach to reviewing (ok not really), and the world's cutest puppy??? Check that all out by clicking here.

A Special Request

On that note, in spirit of the holiday season, Stacey is generously offering to donate 100% of her royalties of her Christmas romance, Mistletoe Magic, to Happily Ever After Animal Sanctuary, a Wisconsin no-kill animal shelter local to the author's home. Is this woman amazing or what?

This eBook is only $2.99 at select retailers, which isn't really a lot if you put it into perspective; you can get a great hot-chocolate-and-hot-kisses holiday read for less than a cup of coffee AND donate to a great animal charity. As a dog owner myself (seriously, you need to look at his itsy bitsy baby pics here), I wholeheartedly encourage y'all to spread the word and contribute to the cause :)

The offer lasts only until the end of December, so get your books a'buyin'!

Here's a fun blurb:
Christmas recipe for love—combine a matchmaking Santa, lots of mistletoe, one iron-clad rule, fated hearts; mix and stir. The Riley siblings don't stand a chance.

Major Mark Riley plays Court Jester to Janelle Walsh's Snow Queen at the Christmas Parade and is instantly captivated by the cute redhead whose grandpa just happens to be Santa. When Mark learns she's the tenant he evicted from his newly purchased property, it's going to take a little bit of Santa's mistletoe magic to save their romance.


It gets better, you guys. Help spread the word about Stacey's donation drive and you'll be entered to WIN copies of Mistletoe Magic and Mistletoe Mischief (the preceding book in the Romancing Wisconsin series)—on me. If you buy your own copy to support Happily Ever After, not only do you earn extra entries, but I'll also gift your prize to a friend for you. Unless you want two copies of the book......that's fine too. Sound peachy? Peachy.

To enter the giveaway, tell your friends, your family, your blog readers—whomever—about the through Twitter, Facebook, and/or your blog, and then fill out the Rafflecopter form below.

Remember, the offer ends when the month ends, so enter away! I will be drawing one winner (they take home both books) on New Year's day. {quick rant: Can you believe we've less than a month left in 2012? Ahhhh!} ANYONE can enter this giveaway, including my pretty international readers! Yayyyy!
