Secret Santa 2010!


It’s that time again. The Queen of Everything *coughkriscough* has decreed it Secret Santa time. Last year’s was a great success, considerably more people signed up than I was expecting so I agreed to host this again. Last year everyone was incredibly generous, which is not necessary again, and just participating is really a wonderful gift. Like last year, I’m going to be offering 2 or more gift certificates to ARe for random participants again. The more people that sign up, the more gift certificates that get thrown into the mix. Last year I sent out 3 gift certificates to participants.

The basics!

What is the Secret Santa?

Gifting! You buy someone an eBook of his or her choice and you get one in return. This way you’re giving gifts while getting some too. It’s such a fun concept and I personally think it’s fun to buy for friends. You can buy the eBook in any way you feel comfortable. I personally recommend using All Romance Ebooks which sends a download link to the person’s email when you a buy a book for someone. You can also buy someone ebucks for ARe or other retailers so the person can buy their book of choice. It’s up to you!

How to sign up?

It’s easy! Just comment here, in email (penelopes.smut@gmail.com), Direct Message, or on Kris’ blog (when she puts up her pimp post, though she doesn’t know it yet). When signing up please include the following information:

• Your email or way to contact you.

• Your #1 choice for eBook. This way you’re sure to get what you want!

• Your #2 choice for eBook. It’s always smart to have a backup.

In one week on next weds, I’ll make a master list of everyone participating and send out the name of your Secret Santa the same day. You’ll have until Christmas to send and get your gift.  I’ll also send emails after Christmas revealing the Secret Santa identities so you can thank (or curse) your gifter.

This is open to anyone! Readers, authors, even those weird m/f romance fans .. anyone can participate.

Any questions?

Sign up!

  1. I’m in but I have to think about the book. There was just something I read a review for and thought “I want to get that book, why haven’t I?” and now …. phhhhttt. Gone. So let me click around and see what it was and I’ll get back with my list.

      • I know now. I went through Lily’s list of new books coming and I found a few actually. πŸ™‚
        I’m refusing to put them in an order because I want to be surprised. I’ll be thrilled to get any one of these and they are from a few different publishers so whatever is easier for the buyer is fine with me. Hopefully they are all at ARe, I have no clue though.
        In alphabetical order by title:
        Black Cat Ink by Nicole Kimberling – Loose Id
        MIA Case Files: Blood Relations by KC Burn – Loose Id
        Pricks & Pragmatism by JL Merrow – Samhain
        The Sweet One by Andi Anderson – Silver Publishing
        Thanks Kassa for doing this.

        • Email sent! Please let me know if you don’t get it/have questions/problems/want more books because you’re greedy or require cookies to be a santa. Thanks for participating!
