Reminder, you have until tomorrow night to go back and read and comment on each day’s post to be entered to win ALL THE THINGS! 12 winners who will each receive one day’s worth of prize packages…one grand prize winner who will win a $300 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

One more day and then all our friends will be heading off to fancy parties and New Year celebrations, and the Xmas elf will be here, humming Xmas carols and wiping tears from her eyes as she cleans up after the celebration. But we’ll always have Xmas, won’t we? Hey, remember that time Crystal Jordan wrote in haiku? Remember that time the Book Tart and Jennifer Kasey sang? *sniffle* No crying yet! We still have tomorrow!

    Good evening Smutkeeters

    I have to admit that all the authors today are new to me.
    But I sure enjoyed reading about Lauren Dane, Anne Calhoun, Rhian Cahill, Elizabeth Gayle, N J Walters, Crystal Jordan and her cute poem, Vivian Arend with her vacation wishes. And, luckily for me, my vacation started Wednesday and I won’t have to go back until Monday, January 6th. And, I love to read.
    I thank all you authors for your generosity of your books, ebooks, gift cards and time.
    May I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

  126. 126

    I have had such a great 2013! I met some fabulous authors on a Facebook party for the release of Midnight Ink…to all of the Smutketeers and friends out there, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
