There are presents inside this blog post

Since Christmas is right around the corner, regular readers may be tuning in expecting to find pictures of the boys putting up the tree and otherwise preparing themselves for an onslaught of joy.

Well, no.

Don’t get me wrong; we put up the tree and we are girding our loins for the wave of unbridled glee, and the boys will be getting their fair share of presents on the 25th. But, I’ve decided to make this post include a present for you (well, two of you, anyway.)

Through December 27, I’m running an Amazon Giveaway of my latest book. It’s the first time I’ve ever done an Amazon Giveaway, so bear with me as I learn the process. The bottom line is this: two winners will get a copy of this book shipped to them from absolutely free.

That’s right: FREE! I’ve already paid for the books and shipping from Amazon.

For a chance to win a book, just follow these easy steps:*

  1. Click the book cover or link below to go to the Giveaway.
  2. Sign into your account (if not already signed in).
  3. Click the button that says “Enter.”

That’s it! You’re entered.



Anders sacrificed his own promising future to save the life of child. Now he must decide whether to cling to the unlikely hope of regaining his old status, or spend his time making the most of the life fate dealt him. Though difficult to let go of rewards once promised, perhaps the greatest rewards are those earned by building new hope from the bits and pieces of wrecked dreams. A Housefly in Autumn is a historical novel intended for Young Adults and up.

After December 27, Amazon will draw two random winners from the pool of entrants and ship the books directly to them.

Here’s the really cool part. I’ve made the Giveaway private, so only people who follow the link can enter. Since I’d like visitors to my blog to have a good chance to win, this is the only place I’m posting the link. You can share the link, or this entire post, or keep it to yourself. That’s up to you.

*The not so really cool part is that according Amazon’s rules, this Giveaway is limited to U.S. entrants. I apologize to my international friends. I would love to be able to include everyone, but apparently doesn’t cover the globe quite like Santa does.

Merry Christmas and good luck.

Now, if you really just wanted to see a picture of us putting up the tree, I’ve got you covered too.

Happy Holidays!

    Didn’t know you’d written a book–go, you!! I’m in, sounds like my kind of story. Nice pic of the boys decking the halls. Glad you didn’t post any of “girding your loins.” Not sure I want to know what that looks like. Have yourselves a Merry Little Christmas. 🙂

    • I’ve written a few of them. They are listed under the “This Guy Should Write a Book” tab at the top of the page. We put all the loin-girding photos into a special album that we bring out at holidays. Merry Christmas and good luck – so far, your odds of winning are pretty good.

    I’d enter just to show support, but I don’t want to deprive someone else the pleasure of your book for free. It’s a great read!

    Hey, Canadians…I’ll enter for you, collectively! If i win, I will have a lottery drawing at Hmmm, Scott i hope this does not violate some international trade law. Sure don’t want you excommunicated to or from the Amazon!
