Here’s my mini-challenge:¬†

This year, I’m drawing upon a tradition that’s a part of our family, one that I would definitely pass on to Emerson’s family in my novel¬†Hello?.¬†

A holiday tradition in Emerson’s family is everyone receives a book. Essentially, that’s the only “physical”gift they will get. Their big gift is a family activity, like a road trip to the caves of Kentucky or a trip to Memphis to see the Civil Rights Museum or a trip to Chicago to explore museums.


The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, by Anne Bronte

Emerson would give Tricia a classic novel, one he knows she hasn’t read, but definitely a book that he would believe provide inspiration and strength: THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL by Anne Bronte

Tricia would give Emerson a first edition copy of Ralph Waldo Emerson poems. It’s expensrwepoems__39626.1410996008.1280.1280ive, but she has money she inherited from her father and grandma, so she’d spend it on this:

Here’s the link to the 1847 1st Edition signed copy: Poems by Ralph Waldo Emerson


My mini-challenge is: What book would you give as a holiday and why?


Extra entry:¬†If you chose to pass on other holiday gifts and instead decided to take a road trip¬†within reasonable distance of your home¬†(so it’s affordable) where would you take a few days off to spend quality time with your loved one(s)?

Prize: International22663633

2 random¬†winners will receive an annotated copy of my debut YA novel,¬†Hello?¬†if US or Canada – otherwise an international winner must be from a country that receives books from the Book Depository. Those books will NOT be signed and annotated, since they’ll be coming directly from the Book Depository.
