12/2: The Poll will go live at midnight for the Reader's Choice Award
12/2: Decided to increase the deadline for all the giveaways to the day before Christmas Eve, so all the lucky winners will be informed of their prizes the night before Christmas!! Plus, some giveaways are just beginning a day or two before the cut off, and it wouldn't be fair to have some giveaways ended prematurely.
12/7: Some of the post that were on the same day as special guest posts have been rescheduled for later in the month. Spreading the fun for the month ;)
12/10: Decided to make the Collection of Christmas-Themed Reads a yearly thing. Editions (or Parts) to the collection will be made every Christmas! Send in your suggestions and it might make the collection next year!
12/15: Another Author has been added to the Christmas With the Novelist week!! Her post will go up Sunday!
12/15: There will be no X-mas Eve facebook chat this year since I will be working the overnight shift at my real-life job. =( sorry! The Winner Announcments for all the giveaways WILL be made, though!


  1. Yay I can't wait :) You'd better have good recipes for me for Ms. Rita

  2. Wow, what a lineup! Very impressive, look forward to checking it out!

  3. @Carsen, thanks for all your help over the month's with getting this together. You are the unsung hero of this event. And there will be plenty of good recipes posted! Pick one and I'll make it for you as a thank you (except the big Ham in Rum Glaze...I'll just set the hour on fire with that one!)

    @Allison, I am glad you like! Hope to see you around often this month for all the festivities.
