Holiday Hullabaloo Day Eleven


Today is the Day ELEVEN of the Holiday Hullabaloo! Fourteen authors are joining together to give away 154 prizes in eleven days– with the final prize of a $200 Amazon of Barnes & Noble gift card on Day Twelve!!!

How awesome is THAT????

Every day, each author is giving away a different prize. Just go to each blog and enter to win.


Enter MY giveaway for today: an annotated, bound copy of a manuscript–your choice– of ANY ONE of my books. The Chosen series (Chosen, Hunted, Sacrifice, Redemption) Rose Gardner Mysteries (Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes or Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons) or On the Otherside series– (Here, or There)

The book will be double spaced and professionally bound by Kinkos. I will hand write– as neatly as possible!!!– notes and behind the scenes looks at characters, what I was thinking when I wrote a scene, music I listened too, why I had a character do something, etc.

Things you’ll find out :

  • Muffy was a spur of the moment add-in in Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes— why did I add her? And why did she have a flatulence problem?
  • What was I doing when I wrote the front porch, lessons in drinking scene in Twenty-Eight?
  • One scene in Chosen was originally written in two POVs. Why did I pick the one I used? What was my original idea for the story of Chosen?
  • The original version of the first draft of HERE was completely different for about 1/3 of the book. What was the original verision? And what was HERE”S first TWO titles?
You’ll get lots of inside info that no one else will know. And the best part is that it’s personalized to YOU. You pick the book. I’m writing notes to YOU.
**Winner must allow me time to have the manuscript bound and annotated.  The manuscript will probably not be sent until the end of January so that I have time to give enough time and attention to the annotations.**

Oooh so tough. Probably Chosen because I want to know so much more about the characters and how your thought process works! This is too cool


I would choose Here

Leslie Miner

How exciting!! Would love the manuscript of Chosen!!

Desiree DeOrto

hmmmm….. I really dont know which one I’d choose…. probably Twenty-eight and a half wishes.


Would love “Twenty-eight and a Half Wishes”

Mandi Massey

I would be so excited to have a copy of Chosen. It is one of my favorite series!

Paola Bell

I would probably either choose Chosen or Twenty-eight and a Half Wishes.


I would choose Here, I love science fiction!


The Holiday hullabaloo is how I discovered you, so I would be super excited to just win any of them because they all look so good. If I had to pick on just based on blurbs, I would pick Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes.

casie hartley

I think I would pick 28 and a half wishes.


Twenty eight and half wishes! That is my favorite books so far.


Hmmmm. . . .so hard to choose. HERE or THERE? Probably THERE. . . ..


Ummmmmm…..i don’t know. Tough choice. Twenty eight and a half wishes is my gut choice….or maybe Everywhere your continuationof Jo and Reeces story (i know thisisn’ta real title but it is my continued hint that I’d love to read a third book in that series :))

Pam Robertson

OMG! I don’t know which one! I love all your books and I’m not just saying that. Probably Chosen.


I LOVE all of your books, but I would definitely want to have a manuscript of HERE….I think it would be the most intriguing and have the BEST notes in the margins!


I think I would pick Chosen.

Erin Patterson

I would pick Chosen. It was the first Denise Grover Swank book I read :) And my fave!!

Kim S

I would pick Hunted

Kimberly Belden

Wow- what an amazing gift to offer up! I can’t even imagine the time it would take to put together an annotated copy of a book (I’ve seen a few and they’ve always blown me away)- thank you for your time and generosity!
My choice would be Chosen- good luck everyone! Happy Holidays!

Jenny Nagel

It would be such a hard choice. I like them all. I would let you pick what you would like to tell about.

Annette Guerriero

Wow, only one!! I think I would probably take THERE since it was the last one that I read :)


Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes

Kelly McCurdy

I just don’t know which one I’ll pick… Probably Chosen!

Arthur Frymyer

Definitely Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes

Crystal Young

I would chose Here

Sheila Taylor

definitely Redemption

Samantha Althoff

ooooohhhhhh that is so tough. i think i would most likely choose one from the Chosen series…but then again lol decisions decisions

Mary Anne

I would pick HERE,it’s a great book and has such an amazingly interesting and original concept! I can’t wait til THERE comes out!

Aimee Morton

Hmmm I think I would choose Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes!

Marlena Fein

I THINK I would pick HERE as there seems to be more in-depth things going on than in Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes which would be my second choice. When going to look at all the choices, I discovered I won Twenty Eight and a Half wishes so I am very excited!

Happy Holidays and thanks so much for the amazing! twelve days,

Marlena Fein

*own! Not *won! I must have a premonition about this one!
