Holiday Wishes

It seems the Publishing Fairy is in town for the holidays, and she just called to say she's going to stop by Casa PBW tonight to deliver some early copies of this:



Since I have no more room under the tree, I thought you all might be nice enough to take them off my hands. So if you're interested in helping out, in comments to this post make a holiday wish (or if you're wish-undecided, just toss your name in the hat) by midnight EST tonight, December 24, 2010. I will draw five names at random from everyone who participates, and send the winners a signed copy of Frostfire by Lynn Viehl. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.

  1. I wish for a real sunshiney, warm California Christmas! I came down from Alaska to torrential rain and damp cold. Somebody messed up my order.

  2. I wish for all those travelling this season to arrive safely... and chocolate. I wish for chocolate, too!

  3. What a fantastic gift offer!=)

    My holiday wish is simple. I want to borrow one of Santa's elves to help me wrap up my last minute gifts.
    Unwrapping is so much better then wrapping.


    Happy Holiday wishes to you and everyone else.

    @ Jessica- lol. Here is Hawaii has been pretty wet the past several days. Where's my sun?

    @ Jaye- Yes, travel safely everyone. Whether arriving or departing be safe. And, yes, chocolate would be a sweet and welcomed treat=)

  7. Please don't enter me, as I'm getting a review copy and don't want to be selfish. I just wanted to stop by and wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or good weekend, depending on your celebration of choice.

  13. Um... ME ME ME ME ME ME ME! uh...sorry. Got carried away.

    My wish? It's not overly holiday-ish, but hey, we're lucky-jobs, healthy, family is all together. So, hmmm. Well, a project that I thought wasn't going to get interest actually caught a nibble the other day.

    I want that nibble to turn into a full-fledged chomp so I can get an exciting, "SHILOH, THEY WANT IT, WHEN CAN YOU BE DONE!" call from my agent in about ten days...

  17. I wish that I would be able to have a turkey dinner on Christmas. I will be visiting in-laws and so far no one has invited us for turkey dinner. :(

    ReplyDelete
  18. I wish for a relaxing, semi-tearless Christmas with my family as it is our first without parental supervision. A nice shiny copy of Frostfire would be a wonderful prezzie. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. The first actual christmas I've had off for along time, not sure what to wish. Lots of snow? Well stocked homeless shelters to deal with the snow? Being a child was easier.

    ReplyDelete
  20. snow, a rise in environmental consciousness, and a new graphics card.

    I wish for a friendly, compassionate alien being/time-travelling human to pop open a portal in front of me and offer to transplant my brain/consciousness into a spiffy new robot body. free of charge, no strings attached, of course!

    think of all the things I could do if I didn't have to spend time eating & sleeping!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wish for true love, a white Christmas, and a clean house. Oh well, the 2 out of 3 that I'll have isn't bad!!

    My wishes and prays go out to all the UK and US servicemen and their families that they have a Happy Christmas.

    On a my own behalf I wish that the new washing machine gets delivered soon rather than later(old one died on Wednesday).

    Plus that over Christmas no matter how much you eat chocolate doesn't make you fat - HaHa

    And books are alway it there somewhere

    Lastly - Wishing you all a Joyous Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year

    My holiday wish is for my kids to have a wonderful christmas, and for everyone to be healthy and happy. Pretty ordinary, but its what's important to me

    ReplyDelete
  33. I was going to wish for a white Christmas, but we got a nice blanket of snow last night. So my wish is for safe travel for my family as they come and go from my house.

  34. My holiday wish is that my dog, Trouble gets better. She's a 13 yr-old greyhound, who up until recently was still racing her heart out (even if it was only against slow-poke me). Within the past month she's developed severe arthritis and can barely walk. A few days ago she was in so much pain she could barely move. She's on a new medicin now, but since she's sensitive to medicine it's hard to keep her on anything long-term. I hope & pray that one will work and she'll be able to walk without her legs collapsing. She's a sweet dog & tougher than me!

    My wish would be for a new bookcase, because my old ones are overfilled.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  36. My holiday wish is for my dad. Ages ago while he was in the army he broke his leg; it wasn't splinted correctly and his ankle was allowed to heal bone-on-bone. He's lived with a constant pain and limp until this year when he had a surgery to fuse the bones and replace a large amount of bone with metal rods, pins and grafted bone. It's been a painful process, but we're hoping that when it's all said and done he will once again be able to ride horses, team rope and mess with his cattle without the use of pain killers or braces. I want him to have a happy, pain free Christmas for the first time in years.

  37. I wish for a friend and co-worker to get past his current health issues to be able to enjoy life again.

  38. I wish happiness and joy to everyone for the holiday season and beyond!

  42. I wish I could visit my older sister and niece, and my best friend and her daughter. They live in New Mexico and I live in Wisconsin. I also wish all my debt would go away, not surprising. I have enjoyed everything you've written and would love to add this to that collection.

    My Christmas wish is to be officially published sooner rather than later. Things keep getting held up and it's depressing. :)

    Merry Christmas everybody!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I read through some of the comments, and hell, I wish for everyone else to get their wishes. I've got stress, but it's the kind of stress that comes from too many people loving each other too much. I can't wouldn't wish that away for the world.
