On The First Day Of Christmas...Rebecca York

Today is December 1, and that means a couple of things. First of all, it means The Rancher's Runaway Princess is available at and, in both print and e-book formats. I notice on the M&B site if you buy now you're guaranteed delivery before Christmas. I assume the same is true for Harlequin in North America. Why not treat yourself or grab as a stocking stuffer? :-)

Anyway, enough of promo-ing myself. The other exciting thing happening today is the launch of my 12 Days of Christmas Contest!

Here's what you do. You have a gander at today's featured author, and you find the holiday clue. Then you e-mail me at with the subject line of "12 Days of Christmas" with the day's clue. One entry per e-mail address per day only. You can come back all 12 days and enter again! And on December 14, I'll be announcing the prize winner.

We're kicking it all off with Day 1 - not a partridge in a pear tree but a New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly best-selling and award-winning author, REBECCA YORK!

I had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca this past October in Calgary at the Calgary RWA chapter fall workshop. We participated in a group signing and I left with three wonderful books for my 12 Days contest.

A bit about Rebecca:

Ever since she can remember, Rebecca York has loved making up stories full of adventure, romance, and suspense. As a child she corralled her friends into adventure games or acted out romantic suspense stories with a cast of dolls. But she never assumed she could be an author because she couldn't spell. Her life changed dramatically with the invention of the word processor and spelling checker--and the help of her husband, Norman Glick, who spots spelling errors from fifty paces away.

She and her husband live in Columbia, Maryland. They have two grown children, Elissa (a librarian) and Ethan (a Foreign Service Officer), and two grandsons, Jesse and Leo. Rebecca holds a B. A. in American Thought and Civilization from The George Washington University and an M. A. in American Studies from The University of Maryland. She heads the Columbia Writers Workshop. She is profiled in Who's Who in America, Contemporary Authors, and Who's Who of American Women.

Rebecca's books in this package are:

Christmas Spirit

Ghost Moon (Part of the Moon Series)

Beyond Fearless
