A Christmas Contest!!

I'm a little late, but I had a great idea for all my fabulous readers and followers...

With Christmas upon us, I've decided to exploit the holidays for my own selfish gain by driving traffic to my blog with a contest. (Okay, it's not ENTIRELY selfish...)

The prize? 
Your choice of any ebook on Amazon up to $5.00 US. A Christmas gift you choose for yourself, so you'll definitely be pleased with it. And if you're not, then you only have yourself to blame. Lol, kidding, but seriously, no returns. 

The catch? 
Since I'm an indie author and I totally love supporting my fellow indie authors, the book your choose can ONLY be by an indie/self-pubbed author. There are SO many excellent authors out there who just don't get the attention they deserve because they don't have big name publishers shoving their books into the media. With mad respect and love to the big-name authors like Stephen King, Nicholas Sparks, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, and more talent than I have room to mention, I have to give support to indie authors. 

The contest? 
Let's be festive. I'll give you quotes from some Christmas-themed (or Christmas related) movies. You tell me the answers. If you get at least ten right out of 15, your name goes into a drawing for the prize, and if you get ALL 15 right, you get your name in five times. On Christmas Eve at 10pm Eastern time the contest closes, and all the entries are put into for the drawing. The winner will be announced on Christmas day!

But Ashley, this is a blog! If I put all my right answers in the comments, everybody else will see them and be able to cheat!

I thought of that. So please do NOT post your entries in the comments. Instead, please go to my Facebook page and message me your entry. Is it an extra step? Yep. Is it worth it? I hope so, because I'm putting a lot of effort into this, lol!

Sound fun? Then what are you waiting for? 

Christmas Quotes

1.     "4:00, wallow in self pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one; 5:30, jazzercize; 6:30, dinner with me - I can't cancel that again; 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing... I'm booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9, I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear?"

2.     "You're all fired, in the morning you'll all be on a bus back to Elfistan!"

3.     "The only person that I let in on the fact that I was still alive was a six-year-old kid. I'm gonna be six years old again. Well, John, it's been fun, but I gotta go. I have a date with six-year-old boy... and you have a date with death."

4.     "Maybe I'm off my hinges, but I believe you. That's why I'm gonna let you go. I'm gonna give you to the count of three to get your lousy, lyin', low-down, four flushing carcass OUT my door! 1... 2...(gunfire)...3. Merry Christmas, you filthy animal. And a Happy New Year."

5.     "Cause when the thermometer gets all reddish, the temperature goes up. And when the temperature goes up, I start to melt! And when I start to melt, I get all wishy-washy."

6.     "We're your worst nightmare. Elves with attitude."

7.     " Do you believe in love at first sight? Nah, I betcha don't, you're probably too sensible for that. Or have you ever, like, seen somebody? And you knew that, if only that person *really* knew you, they would, well, they would of course dump the perfect model that they were with, and realize that YOU were the one that they wanted to, just, grow old with. Have you ever fallen in love with someone you haven't even talked to? Have you ever been so alone you spend the night confusing a man in a coma?"

8.     "It was...soap...poisoning."

9.     "When you've got a hit like we have, Patch, the people don't wanna wait a whole year, they're dying for a sequel! A sequel. That's it. We'll bring it out on March 25, and we'll call it... Christmas II!"

10.     "She's my family now. Everyone should be home for Christmas! I'll be home for Christmas, and I'm going to bury the hatchet in your head."

11.     I'm gonna give you a little advice, Claire... Scrape 'em off. You wanna save somebody? Save yourself!"

12.     "Shitter's full!"

13.     "In this town we call home
        Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

        In this town, don't we love it now
        Everybody's waiting for the next surprise!"

14.     "First of all, keep him out of the light, he hates bright light, especially sunlight, it'll kill him. Second, don't give him any water, not even to drink. But the most important rule, the rule you can never forget, no matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight."

15.     "Cassie! That marker in your mouth, I peed on it!"
