Happy Holidays

I have no idea what to give away for my stocking stuffer this year. Should my giveaway be print or ebook? An old title or new? I'm afraid I'm one of those people who agonize over choosing just the right gift during the holidays.

So... I'm leaving the gift up to my giftee. (<-- Is that even a word?) Whomever is selected can have any books they like, in any format they desire.

At midnight tonight, random.org will do me the honor of picking my winner and I'll announce it here. All you have to do is leave a comment. Say hello, tell me a joke, give me your Nana's recipe for fruitcake -- it doesn't matter. Just put your little digital X in the comment box and you'll be entered to win a book of your choosing.

I love that line from Johny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Such a wonderful movie.

The best win would be if someone could tell me where to find "Furtive Ache" in Mobi format. Love your art!

Amanda Young said...

You all are a hoot. Thanks to everyone whose entered so far. I'll be announcing the winner later tonight.

Dizzyduo - Furtive Ache is only available in print. However, the two novellas it contains (Precious Ache & Furtive Liaison) are available directly from the publisher (and lots of other places)in PRC format. You can find them here: http://www.amberquill.com/AmberAllure/bio_Young.html

Hey Amanda,
Here's a recipe I'm going to attempt in a few days...I've been really wanting to try out a homemade fudge recipe and I got this off of an author's site/loop.
Enjoy!

Quick nut fudge
1 pound confectioner’s (icing) sugar
½ cup cocoa
¼ tsp salt
6 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup of chopped nuts (optional)
Combine all except nuts in a double boiler.  Stir until smooth.  Add nuts. Spread in a buttered 9 x 5 pan and cool.  Cut into squares.

Happy Holidays
