A Gift for Readers ~ @oddlynn3 #rndrobin1220 #LynnCrain


Hi everyone!

Welcome to another Round Robin event. This month we’ve taken on a little bit different type of post. This month, it’s all about you the reader. Each one in the blog list will be giving away something to their readers. And since this is the Christmas season, I’ve decided to give a few things away.

I love Christmas and it’s my favorite season in Vienna. There are Christkindlmarkts and tons of fun things to do. This year is a little different as the weather is not normal. Normally, it’s cold with a promise of snow. Of course, that’s if it hasn’t already happened. This year, it’s sunny and warm and so unlike the Christmas season. So, in light of that, I wanted to bring a little bit more of the season into my place.

I’m doing a Christmas giveaway for five awesome prizes. 

The first prize is an Italian leather wallet in the shape of a heart. For those of you who don’t know me, I love hearts. And I try to give as many out as I can. After all, I do write romance and even if some is odd or weird, there’s still a relationship at the center. And it all begins with the heart.

Next we have this wonderful Murano glass necklace and earrings. Yes, they are from Italy, specifically Venice, which I visited this year.

Then we have some awesome Christmas ornaments from right here in Vienna. All are made of wood and laser carved locally. I love looking for these because so many are made elsewhere.

So what do you have to do to win these awesome prizes? It’s really simple and you have a variety of ways that you can enter. First, do one of these five things:

1 ~ Follow me here via email or subscribe to this blog.
2 ~ Like my author page on Facebook at
3 ~ Subscribe to my mailing list on my author blog This will enable you to keep up with my latest news, books and more.
4 ~ Tell me what book is highlighted at my author blog
5 ~ Follow me on Twitter at
6 ~BONUS ENTRY: Follow my author blog

Once you’ve done one of those, let me know in the comments section here and tell me what one you’ve done. You can get one entry for each item you do, for a total of six entries. If you already do any or all of these, let me know as well and you’ll still get an entry for that item. REMEMBER to leave me your email address so that I can contact you privately should you be a winner. If you don't want to leave your email in a comment, email me privately at with your entry. This giveaway will run through January 11th, 2015 when winners will be drawn at random and posted. 

Thanks for being supportive of me during the year. Each of you hold a special place in my heart and it’s only right that I try to give back to you, my awesome readers, at least once a year. 

Don’t forget to go to each of the authors in the list below. Each of them is offering something very special this holiday season for their readers.

Here’s wishing each of you a very, very happy holiday season from here in sunny Vienna, Austria.
