This time of year always feels like a mad rush, doesn’t it?  So with the holidays almost upon us, the Jaunty Quills want to play Santa and give our readers a little incentive to take a break—with books, of course! Each day from December 15th until Christmas Eve we’ll be posting one particular kind of holiday cookie on our facebook page, a favorite of one of the Jaunty Quills.  Just match the Quill to the cookie and post her name in the comment thread for a chance to win one of that author’s books (don’t worry—we’ll be giving you hints). 

In addition to the daily wins, we’ll be awarding a grand prize of a $50 Amazon gift card on December 25th!  All you have to do to win books is visit our facebook page and answer the daily question.  The grand prize will be drawn from the entrants on the daily posts.

We’ll also be posting some of our favorite cookie recipes for the holidays, and we encourage you to share your favorites on our facebook page, too.


But hold those cookie recipes for the contest!  For now, just tell us what you’re most looking forward to this holiday season.
