THE GREAT ADVENT CALENDAR BOOK EVENT - DAY ONE

Okay, Liz, is deep in deadline so I'm helping out here. It's actually easier now that I've got this amazing limo job because there's a lot more hanging around -- I'm doing this while I'm having tea at the Embassy -- and anyway, I've got to do something to keep my mind off Sheikh Zahir. He's my Very Important Person. If I get this right...

If.

I'm trying to be good and not let Sadie down, but he hadn't even got in the car before I was in trouble. You know that breakfast cereal that goes Snap, Crackle & Pop? Well this was more Golly, Oops & ... And the word I'm not allowed to say.

Anyway, enough about me. I'm opening the first door of the Advent Calendar...

DECEMBER 1ST

THE BRIDESMAID'S REWARD is behind the door in Day One of the Liz Fielding Advent Calendar.

It's going to take a miracle for Dodie to lose two dress sizes in time for her sister's wedding, especially given her major weakness. .......

She soon discovers another weakness, though, her live-in personal trainer, Brad Morgan, a man determined to prove to Dodie that the ultimate reward is finding a man who loves her just as she is. (Ignore the picture on the cover -- she never gets thin!)

This book was short-listed for the RNA Romance Prize a few years ago and proved something of a fan favourite. To win your own signed copy you're going to have to fill in that blank up there. Email me at liz @lizfielding.com -- I'll chose the winner at lunchtime on the 2nd (Liz is on UK time) -- Day One in the subject line and with what you think is Dodie's weakness, along with your name and snail mail address in the body. It helps get the prizes out quickly if she doesn't have to wait for a reply (especially with the way her email has been lately).

And don't forget -- there'll book another book tomorrow.

Okay, so if I already have a copy of today's book do I just wait for my turn at another? I don't want to deprive anyone of their chance. I've managed to get at least two other people addicted to Liz.

OK, I will add to Penn. Is commenting on the blog enough or should I email. A not thin heroine sounds refreshing.

Hi Penn! By all means wait :) There'll be 25 different books, some of which were never issued retail in the States so I'm sure you'll see something you haven't read before.

Addicted? So how to you do that? M&B marketing would love to know!

Hi Merri

Thanks so much for dropping by. I decided to ask for answers by email because otherwise the first comment gives the answer for everyone. Not that they're difficult. And while Dodie does have a particular weakness, points will be given for entertaining answers!

Comments, though, are always welcome. It's lovely to hear from friends.

Already send my entry for your Day One book, though would like to know if non US residents are eligible for your contest.

Love the cover even if it's not accurate. At least the basis is there. I really hate when the covers go wrong!! Had one where the heroine was holding a gun when nothing in the story hinted about the gun or any mystery or threat for that matter! Go figure!

Hi CY ... thanks for dropping by for the party!

Everyone, wherever they live, can take part in any of my competitions. I've sent books to every continent!

This was the book that got me addicted to Liz Fielding and Harlequin/Mills and Boon in general. It's a great one. Can't wait for tomorrow.

This book sounds great!!! And I think this is a cool idea for a giveaway! It helps people learn about some of those wonderful Liz Fielding books they may have missed.
