On the 4th Day of Christmas...CONTEST!
Welcome to those of you that found your way here from my post at the HEA blog. Sorry my post is up late...it's been one of those days!
Charlie Brown and Snoopy are enduring favorites from my childhood. Some might even say I have an unnatural love of all things Snoopy-related, though I would argue vigorously with those people. At both Halloween and Christmas, I tune in to watch the Charlie Brown specials on TV, though I've seen each hundreds of times. The added bonus of the Christmas special is that it usually falls near my birthday, so I also associate it with that.
Charlie Brown's Christmas special brings with it the iconic image of that small, sparse tree that's barely hardy enough to hold a few ornaments. A co-worker at my old job had one he brought in every year and it was always good for a few laughs. Add in the caroling and the Christmas play, and A Charlie Brown Christmas truly is a feel-good relic of the past that is still relevant and appreciated today.
I'll admit to being a sucker for Christmas stories, both in books and in movies. That's part of the reason I chose to write my upcoming holiday release, No Romance Required, book three in the Love Required series, coming this winter from Entangled Publishing. I don't have a cover to show off yet, but I've seen the mock-up and whew! *fans face*
Christmas was the perfect backdrop for No Romance Required because the heroine, Vicky, experienced some traumatic events in her life around the holidays and they've colored her life ever since. Add in a sometimes Scrooge-y hero, Cory, who actually loves Christmas, and lots of sparks and voila, you definitely have the makings of a holiday to remember!
No Flowers Required.
Today I'm giving away four Christmas goodies, including one featuring Snoopy!
