Want To Win An E-Reader?

The Samhellion is giving away Sony and Kindle e-readers during the month of December, and I'm part of the second round! The contest rules are posted at All you have to do is go to my website,, and try to find the "present" I've been asked to hide by the Samhellion. Once you find it, write down the location and go looking for the next present at the next author's site. After you've found them all, head on over to the Samhellion and enter the contest for a chance to win!

Good luck!

Contest 2 - Holiday Presents

The Samhellions have been burning up the credit cards shopping like mad to get ready for the holidays and they've bought way too much. Our house is packed with shopping bags from the basement to the rafters!

Can you help us track down some misplaced holiday gifts? We're thinking a few of the rowdier Samhellions (not that we're naming names mind you...) have been sneaking off with the swag. Even though we have the tree up, it looks naked without some presents underneath it.
