The Best Christmas Recipe Yet

Don't miss this recipe!
Here in the States it's not even Thanksgiving yet (I do have 2 more days to get my menu together, right?) but I've been celebrating Christmas over at my blog all month long with a different guest author each day. This is a special release month for me as it's the first time I've had two books out at once, and the first time I was asked to be part of an anthology. I wanted to celebrate this by reaching out to those who make it all possible--the Active Duty military and their families.
I am a Navy veteran myself and I know what it's like to be away from home for the holidays. I also know the pain and tough moments of Christmas with young children while Dad is far away, keeping us all safe.
With an idea sparked by my webmistress, I approached Harlequin for help. Would they be willing to donate books for me? The answer was an unequivocal "yes!" For every 20 new subscribers to my newsletter (aka the Geri Krotow Loyal Reader Club), Harlequin agreed to send 1 new book. They believed in this so much that they provided copies of my two November releases in advance, and I've sent hundreds of books to military and their families who will experience holiday separation at home and abroad. Belgium, Germany, Djibouti and the DC Capitol area all received books because of you--my wonderful readers.
There's still time to support the military with my book drive this month--all you need do is sign up for my newsletter here. That's it! And I'm getting ready to write and release a newsletter in December that will include my super-secret Christmas Cookie cut-out recipe, complete with a special frosting. Don't miss it!
Leave a comment and you will be entered to win a copy of NAVY CHRISTMAS along with a custom bookmark ornament!

Thanks for the great recipe - no Christmas planning yet. We wait until after Thanksgving to plan Christmas. I take extra vacation days in December to get all the shopping and making done

Colleen, isn't it great to have the gifts done early? I always like it when I do, too. Tammy, I'm with you in that I like to keep Christmas for after Thanksgiving--no Christmas decorations at my house yet (oops, I just saw one, my new "JOY" sign). But nothing else!

We always start celebrating Christmas early. Not as early as the stores though. I'm baking & freezing right now.
