Free Book, New Release, and a Giveaway

Hey everyone!

I’ve officially kicked off my 2019 Holiday Event! From now until the beginning of January, I will be posting new events on Friday afternoons. I’ll be hosting giveaways, and we’ll have games and sales.

Before I share this coming week’s events and announce the prize for last week’s scavenger hunt, I want to let you know I’m currently in the process of consolidating my websites. I’ve already brought my contemporary books over here, and I’m also hoping to add more info on my urban fantasies. While I work on all that, my Shannon Lynn Cook site will be down. I’m hoping to have everything worked out in a few weeks. (Hopefully sooner!)

Okay, onto fun stuff!

This Week’s 2019 Holiday Event Schedule:

Scavenger Hunt Prize: The Eldentimber Collection: Pippa, Anwen, & Seirsha

Great job to everyone who emailed me with their answers to last week’s scavenger hunt! You’ve won the prize! The book is free for everyone today through Sunday!

Cup of Holiday Happiness Giveaway!

One winner will receive a $10.00 digital Starbucks card & a free ebook!

There is something about the holidays that makes me crave warm drinks! I love them all–pumpkin spice lattes, peppermint mochas, spicy black tea with orange peel, and definitely hot apple cider.

Yesterday, I asked my Instagram and Facebook readers what their favorite Starbucks drink is. Today, I thought it would be fun to do a poll! I’ll share the results with you next Friday!

For a chance to win the Starbucks card & free book, take a picture of your favorite holiday drink. It doesn’t have to be Starbucks–it can be from a local coffee shop or made at home. Really, anything works as long as it’s a drink and it’s holiday-themed.

Tag me on Instagram (@shariltapscott), or post it to my Facebook page. I’ll choose a winner at random and send out the prize next Friday!

Official Details:

Winner will be chosen at random on the morning of Friday, November 15th.

Winner may choose from any of my ebooks, including my Shannon Lynn Cook books. (Collections are excluded.)

BONUS Entry: If your photo contains a drink AND one of my books, you’ll get an additional entry.

No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. 

You must submit a photo with your beverage to be added to the drawing.

Instagram, Facebook, Amazon, and Starbucks are not affiliated with or endorsing this giveaway.

There are hundreds of things we know we must never do. For example, we shouldn’t run with scissors or take candy from strangers. But there’s another lesser-known rule, and it’s just as important as the ones you learned as a child: Never, never call your ex-boyfriend when your life is falling apart.

But that’s exactly what I did.


What do you call it when your ex-girlfriend contacts you out of the blue on the very same day her mother invites you over for Christmas? Some would call it fate, others coincidence.

I call it an opportunity. One I’m not going to pass up…

Author’s note: 10 Ways to Survive Christmas with Your Ex is a fun and festive 26,000-word Christmas novella. It can be read as a standalone, or along with the other books in the series.
