A Season of Thanksgiving

Okay, so November is one of my favorite months ever. It's not really because of Thanksgiving, but I do have a lot to be thankful for this year. My first book got published. I visited more cities this year (Phoenix, New York, Las Vegas, New Orleans, San Diego, and Denver) than I have in the past decade. No lie.

In addition to a few other big moments in my life, I signed with my agent in November.

Yeah, November is a great month.

And I've decided that you all get to benefit from my November love-fest. So, each Friday from now until the end of the year (skipping some holiday Fridays), I will be giving something away. Could be a book, or a piece of jewelry, or whatever.

Today's prize is a bar code ring and a bar code bracelet.


If you've read Possession, you know where these bar coded things come from. If you haven't read Possession, well, you should get on that. ;)

For the duration of this Thankful Giveaway, there's only one way to enter: through the Possession Facebook fanpage. You do NOT have to like the page to be entered (but I would love it if you'd like the page), but there will be activities associated with each giveaway.

To participate this time around, all you need to do is comment on the fanpage wall about what you're most thankful for right now. (Open from now until next Thursday night.) That's it. Then I'll know that you want to be entered to win the bar code jewelry.

Then, stay tuned to the fanpage for more happenings--every day, with giveaway announcements on Fridays.

Oh! And I'm giving away a signed hardcover of CROSSED. Click here to enter to win that.

So...what are you most thankful for right now?

It's always good to be grateful. Thanks for reminding us.

I'm grateful my husband is healthy, my daughter is doing awesome in high school, and I'm hanging in there given my job uncertainties. Not bad.

November certainly has been good to you Elana. I am thankful for family; especially proud of our kids adjusting to life in school.

I am thankful that I won your page critique. No, I havent emailed you anything yet. I should do that! Still tweaking.

Abby Fowers said...

At this very second I am thankful for your success and your plan to do giveaways on Fridays until the end of the year! I love giveaways! And I already "like" your page so I'm off to enter!

Right now I'm most thankful for the job I'll be starting next week. I've waited a long time for this sort of thing and I'm stoked.

Though it's tempered by the fact that I don't use Facebook anymore so I can't enter any of these giveaways.

J.R. Johansson said...

I'm a big fan of November also, but I think I have less reasons for it than you do. Who knows? Maybe this month will change that? ;-)

Christina Lee said...

Hey I recognize that cool a** bracelet--NIIIIIICE!:D

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Not entering to win (and sorry no Facebook) but I'm thankful for what's happened with my book, however long it took to do it. And grateful for my wife's constant believe that it was a best seller.

Krispy said...

November's a cool month, I have to agree. I'm thankful for the holidays coming up. I seriously need the break!

Christa said...

You are so generous and sweet with the giveaways. How do you pull off all the postage? (And the annoying trips to the post office!)

Taffy said...

I'm thankful for my critique group who helps me keep my story on track!
You have awesomesauce giveaways, Elana!

Miriam Forster said...

I'm thankful that my first round edits are DONE!

*falls over*

And that I get to follow such cool authors and see how they do it. :)

Angela Brown said...

I'm thankful for so many things, getting to meet such wonderful writers in the blogosphere is just one of them.

My chipmunk and my writing and though life is not perfect, I'm thankful for the chance to change my fortunes with hard work. Some luck will be required because I've read some excellent writing from some extremely unknown writers.

Christine Fonseca said...

I love your gratitude fest!

Leslie Rose said...

I'm grateful that being a writer has no expiration date.

Heather said...

I'm most thankful for my writing community friends because they got me through a tough, complicated week and kept me smiling!

Theresa Milstein said...

What a nice idea. I'm thankful for my happy and healthy family. I love spending time with my husband and kids. It's a happy place.

Paul Greci said...

Very nice, Elana!! And generous. :-)

Alice said...

No wonder you love November. I would too if that's when I got an agent or my book came out!

Lisa and Laura said...

I'm thankful for YOU! XOXO
