Winners Announced and THE BOOK TRAILER

I'd like to think that I woke up at 4 AM because I was so excited about today's post and not because my dog was barking to be let outside. UGH. So let's just say I was so excited I couldn't sleep, like on Christmas Eve . . . when you're a kid. *looks around*

First, I'd like to thank everyone again for spreading the word about Of Grace and Chocolate and all these contests. Self-promotion is not something I'm all that comfortable with and you are helping to make it fun. So THANK YOU.

Second, congrats to the winners of my latest contest! Janine Jensen will be getting a 2 lb. bag of my favorite chocolate-covered gummy bears! ENJOY! And Emily Clausen (@EGClausen on Twitter) will receive a copy of EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton. Gotta love authors whose books are coming out in January 2012.

Third, I'd like to thank my son, Braeden, for helping me put together this next project. Without him, all I'd have is a bunch of creative commons images, a song, and some words, sitting in a file on my laptop. Because of his know-how, talent, and iMovie, I am now very happy to present the new book trailer for Of Grace and Chocolate. I hope you like it.

I'll be hosting another contest very soon! Stay tuned . . .

December Grace and Chocolate Countdown Celebration, Part 1

It is December! I can't believe it. The Christmas tree is up, the lights are on the house, it's 17 degrees outside and it is time for another Grace and Chocolate Countdown Celebration giveaway! Hooray!

First, I have some FANTASTIC news: I will be sharing the BOOK LAUNCH of Of Grace and Chocolate with none other than the unstoppable SARAH M. EDEN and the launch of her next title, Friends and Foes! She and I will be celebrating the release of our books with a party and signing for all of you, so start spreading the word! So far, the launch will take place during the 2nd week of January, 2012, and it will be somewhere in the Salt Lake City area. It's going to be EPIC. I can't wait!

To celebrate, I'm giving away another 2 lb. bag of chocolate-covered cinnamon bears!!! Yayyyy!

I'm also giving away a copy of . . . EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton! This one is definitely on my wish list! But just so you know, it isn't out until January 24, 2012. Don't worry! It will be worth the wait.

Everneath is a unique re-telling of the Persephone and Hades myth. Go see the trailer here. You must. It gives me goosebumps.

To enter, please leave a comment below listing one of your favorite Christmas traditions, then "like" my Facebook page! That's it! You must do both to be entered once. To enter again, share this contest on Facebook, Twitter, your blog, etc. There will be two winners drawn, one for the chocolate, and one for the book! Exclamation points galore!

Contest open until midnight, Wednesday, December 7th.

We're getting closer, people! I can almost taste it!

It tastes like chocolate.
