Top 100

Woo-hoooooo! North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus just hit one THOUSAND entries in my Goodreads giveaway!

* * * * *

* * * * *

Wow! Thank you all sooo much, especially the 600+ fans who put my book on their to-read shelves. You're the best!

Wizard the Elf did the math for me. He says North Pole High is now the 89th most-requested book out of more than 1,800 currently open giveaways. That puts it in the top 5%. For a Christmas book. In October. Take that, Halloween!

There's still one day left. If you want better odds, enter my other giveaway right here. Fewer players. More prizes. It's easier than voting! LOL.

Twelve Days of October Giveaway

Hiiiiii! I'm having so much fun on my blog tour. Now I know what it's like when my dad goes on his mall tour every year.

And I've reached ONE THOUSAND Twitter followers!!!

To celebrate, I'm launching a new GIVEAWAY!

This time I've decided to have some fun with it. In addition to a SIGNED ARC of my book, the Grand Prize Package includes a hand-picked selection of DVDs that I think you'll love, along with exclusive North Pole High stickers and bookmarks!

Plus, the Kindle edition of North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus will go to ten lucky second-place winners!

As you know, giving presents is in my genes. Here are the DVDs included in this prize package:

The original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, because it's all about making candy, and who doesn't love candy?

Four Nicholas Sparks movies, because who doesn't love romance? Well, boys maybe. But maybe a boy will win these and change his mind? Includes The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, and Nights in Rodanthe.

Happy Feet! Okay, this one was Chefy's choice. Cuz it's about Penguins! Nuff said.

And finally, JUSTIN BIEBER, because who doesn't love the Biebs? I mean, I've seen the letters you write to my dad. He's the most requested Christmas present by far. But if you are one of the haters, I can always give this disc to Jessy, my cover designer. She's a true Belieber!

Contest begins Saturday, October 13, at 12:01am EST. Ready, set, ENTER!

This month may be all about Halloween for most of you, but it's Christmastime for me!

I can't believe October 2nd is finally here!!!! My book is out there for the whole world to see!!! I'm now in print in six countries (United States, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain) and in digital print ALL OVER THE WORLD. And if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can read North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus for FREE!

You can find Amazon links to buy the book on my brand new North Pole High Shopping Page, along with a way to get your ebook digitally autographed by yours truly. :) You can also order the official "Property of North Pole High" hoodie. This is the first time our NPH sportswear has ever been sold below the Arctic Circle!

If you get a chance to love my book, please help spread the word with glowing reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, blogs, and wherever. It'll be like spreading joy to the world, which is what Christmas is all about. LOL.
