Let It Snow Books: Guest post by Amy Andrews + Giveaway

We continue our holiday celebrations in style: today's guest is Amy Andrews, who has another reason to celebrate this Christmas: she has a new holiday release out: 'Tis the Season to be Kissed. Amy chose to tell us about one of her favourite holiday preparation activities: tree trimming! So come and join us as she shows us what decorations she puts on her Christmas tree. ;-) 

Here in this big, brown land Down Under we don’t get snow at Christmas. In fact we don’t get snow any time of the year where I live :-)

But, I can dream right?:-)

We don’t have those gorgeous thick, plump, live Christmas trees you guys have, either. Ours are spindly, anaemic looking “pines” not the proper evergreen type which is why, in our house, we have a fake tree cos at least it looks like what a Christmas tree should look like (IMHO) The kind of tree I’ve seen in hundreds of snowy Christmas movies. Sigh…

I love trimming the tree. We have decorations that we’ve brought from all round the world during our travels and it’s like taking a walk down memory lane every year. Here are three of my favourites!

Our Angel – we bought her in Oberammergau in Germany and she’s all handmade and perfect. She cost us a fortune but she’s holding up well after 20 + years!

Bell – found these gorgeous starry bells in the Christmas markets in Salzburg, Austria – a truly magical place - and they’ve hung on our tree ever since!

Snowflake - I mentioned we don’t get snow here right? But that doesn’t mean the tree can’t boast a flake or two :-) We bought these from Harrods in London (along with about a thousand other things) and they look particularly pretty of a night time with the tree lights glowing behind them!

Do you have a favourite tree decoration?

Wishing everyone a very happy and safe holiday season and lots of happy reading!

A down-on-her-romantic-luck kindergarten teacher plans to drown her New Year’s Eve sorrows in a gallon of spiked eggnog, but the arrival of her best friend's sexy brother threatens to melt the snow piling up outside the tiny Vermont cabin.

Amy Andrews never wanted to be a writer. She wanted to be a fairy, then a scuba diver, then Smurfette. Eventually, due to the fact that none of these were actual jobs (and no matter how hard she tried she just wasn’t blue enough), she became a nurse. But through it all she was a reader. And she loved words. When she was twenty-two and temporarily out of work she realised the voices in her head were actually a plot and she wrote her first romance novel. It was cold out and she discovered that writing meant she could stay in bed with her electric blanket. She has since written 28 novels for Harlequin (often in her pyjamas) and her proudest moment was winning the prestigious Australian RuBy award for the best sexy romance in 2010. She put on a frock for that occasion.

She now writes for both the Medical and RIVA/Presents lines and considers herself to be blessed.

Of course her two teenagers keep her grounded. One day she’s sure they’re going to admit to her being an author but she’s not holding her breath.
