Speaking of trees, this our 2012 tree.
Anyway, back to the Christmas giveaway here at "String of Pearls": I thought I'd send one lucky reader a signed copy of my novel, Finding Grace (see link above right). It might make a good gift, particularly for a special young adult in your life.
To enter, just leave me a short comment today. I will write down the names of each person who does so, put them in a bowl, and draw out the name of the winner. I'll announce the winner in tomorrow's blog post, and then I'll need to figure out a way for you to contact me with your address (if I don't already know you!). I can have the book in the mail almost immediately. You should really enter this contest--judging by the number of comments my blog posts usually get, your odds of winning are about 1 in 3 or better!
Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!
