AND THE WINNER IS… Sue Tedford
CONGRATS! You win the Day 5 Giveaway! Please check your FB tags!
Welcome to my annual 12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS!
If you’re new to this – here’s how it works:
1. Each day from December 1 through December 12 I will put up a new giveaway HERE on my website with instructions on how to enter, a detailed description of the prize, and some stuff about the book or series. Each giveaway is different and each has ONE WINNER UNLESS you are the winner and you are from Australia or New Zealand.
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ!
MY GIVEAWAYS ARE ALWAYS OPEN INTERNATIONAL BUT the United States Post Office has stopped all mail delivery to AUS and NZ. Shit is weird BUT you can still win if you’re from AUS or NZ because each giveaway has a GIFT CARD as well as a physical gift. So if the winner chosen is from AUS or NZ – there will be TWO winners. The AUS/NZ winner will get the GIFT CARD and the second winner will get the physical prize but NO gift card.
2. Each giveaway runs UNTIL DECEMBER 13.
3. Winners are CHOSEN and NOTIFIED on December 14. I will be notifying winners in various ways depending on how people enter. Sometimes on FB, sometimes on IG, sometimes in my FB fan group (Shrike Bikes), sometimes via email – and all winners will BE LISTED AT THE TOP OF EACH GIVEAWAY POST HERE ON MY WEBSITE on December 14.
4. Winners have 24 hours to respond, then another winner will be chosen.
5. ALL PRIZES WILL BE MAILED ON DECEMBER 15. If I’m waiting on a winner to respond and they miss the December 15 mail date, that prize will be mailed when I get around to it. I live in the middle of nowhere so a trip to the post office is a “thing” for me. 🙂 So make sure you’re checking for winners on the 14th.
6. I will send newsletters announcing giveaways on December 1, December 6, December 12, and a Winner newsletter on December 14. I NEVER send this many newsletters in a month so sorry if that feels spammy. I just have quite a few readers who do not do socials and there will be at least three giveaways that do not involve socials in any way. So I need to get the word out.
7. You can also FOLLOW MY BLOG. I will also make a blog post HERE announcing ALL WINNERS on the 14th. If you want to follow this blog there will be a form at the bottom of each post to do that. Then you get an email when I POST HERE. I don’t do that often – December is the exception because of the 12 Days and my yearly “Wrap-up” post.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
THAT’S IT! I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY THIS! The world is INSANE right now so I’m just trying to spread some cheer and give back to all of you who support me and enjoy the stories I create.
DID YOU MISS THE OTHER GIVEAWAYS?
HERE ARE THE LINKS!
NOW LET’S GET ON TO THE DAY 5 GIVEAWAY!
DAMAGED GODS IS A FUN, FLIRTY PARANORMAL ROMANCE
When I answered an ad for a caretaker at Saint Mark’s Sanctuary I thought I’d be dusting chandeliers and polishing floors. I didn’t expect to be tricked into a curse, going in debt to a monster, and being forced to take a self-paced “Let’s Learn Magic” course so I can fix a two-thousand-year-old problem.
And that monster?
Not your ordinary, everyday beast.
He has hooves, and horns, and fur on his legs.
But ya know where he doesn’t have fur?
Which is fine.
Except he doesn’t wear pants.
Nothing at Saint Mark’s is exactly what it seems.
The entire inside is magic, the hallways upstairs are nothing but parties from the past, and the super-hot guy who lives in the dungeon?
My name is Pie and all I want is to be a normal girl with an average life.
I refuse to get stuck in this curse.
I refuse to learn magic to break it.
And there is no way in hell I will fall in love with a monster.
DAMAGED GODS is a fun paranormal monster romance about a girl named Pie who accidentally stumbles into a monster’s 2000-year-old curse only to find she’s exactly where she’s supposed to be.
HERE IS THE DAMAGED GODS PRIZE!
1. Signed Damaged Gods Hardcover
2. Damaged Gods Candle
3. Sage & Lavender Room Spray
4. Sage & Lavender Crystal Candle
5. Sage & Lavender Smudge
6. Lollia Imagine Journal with Tassel
7. $20 Gift Card
8. Super Swag Pack
9. Gift Box
8. Gift Bag
LISTEN TO THE DAMAGED GODS AUDIOBOOK TEASER!
AUDIOBOOK is Whispersynced on AMAZON and available at AUDIBLE and APPLE AUDIOBOOKS.
The audiobook isn’t in the Audible Plus Catalog BUT it is Whispersynced (and almost 12 HOURS LONG!) so you can get it for just $7.49 when you grab the eBook first.
NARRATED BY JASON CLARKE and HATHAWAY LEE!
CLICK THE VID TO HEAR A SAMPLE OF JACOB AS COOPER!
AND HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN TODAY’S GIFT SET!
(1) MAKE SURE YOU ARE FOLLOWING my Facebook Author page HERE
(2) COMMENT ON THIS FACEBOOK POST and tell me IF YOU CAME UP WITH A SIDE HUSTLE while the world was changing before our very eyes.
(3) COMMENT HERE on the blog (below) just to say hi!
(#3 is not required, but I still love comments and I read every single one! I don’t always have time to reply, but I really do read them all)
In 2020 I started making candles. I did this for some book boxes I made for Creeping Beautiful and Pretty Nightmare. But when all that was over I decided to keep making candles because it’s fun, makes my house smell amazing, and who doesn’t love candles? Also, I just kinda enjoy making the fun labels. 🙂
But then I got an idea to make some other self-care products. The witchy stuff is all the rage over on Instagram. I’m not a witch. lol. I don’t do any of that spell-casting stuff or anything. But I like looking at all the crystals, and candles, and room sprays, and other cretive things that the “witchy girls” over in IG are always coming up with. They are so damn cretive and their stuff is so pretty. It’s hard not to feel happy when you’re looking at it. So I decided I was gonna make some of this stuff too, and then do this side hustle and sell it. I even made custom boxes. That’s what you’re getting in this prize, BTW. That box of room spray, the smudge, and the crystal candle were all made by me.
But I never quite found the time to actually get an Etsy store up and running. So none of it is up for sale yet.
But I have another set of products I started making after Damaged Gods released called Pie’s Apothecary. In the book, Pie is not a witch, either. She doesn’t even want to be a witch. She has no interest in spell-casting or anything like that. All she wants is to be normal.
But she’s NOT normal. At all.
And when she is forced to try her hand at spell-casting, she fucks it all up. Her attempts at magic are fun and have unexpected results. So I’m gonna make fun Pie potions and other messed-up magical stuff for the Pie’s Apothecary boxes and those will definitely be for sale by the time book two, Savage Saints, releases in April.
Can’t wait to hear what kind of side hustles you guys came up with. 🙂
AND HERE is a sneak peek of tomorrow’s giveaway!
Make sure you stop by and enter!

Hi not sure if this will qualify as an entry but I dont use facebook 🙁
I have a full time job as a vet tech our job is considered essential and therefore we have been open all thru the covid craziness. Unfortunately my career does not finacially pay well overall all. I have recently acquired a second part time job at a small gas station.
It is less then a mile from my home and because it is hard for employers to find workers I recieved a raise with in the first month:) the gas station is a wonderful part time gig….. I get to work alone and I listen to audio books when there are no customers, while making coffee, sweeping, and cleaning bathrooms etc 🙂 it has been perfect for me 🙂
Happy Sunday — love the prizes you are giving away and keeping fingers crossed I am one of the lucky winners. Thanks for all you do.
Hey there!! I hope you had a great thanksgiving. Happy holidays. 🎄🎅🏼

Hi! Happy holidays!
Hi. I did have a side gig. I cooked for others in my “circle of people” lots of “boyfriends” I had, family and friends, that needed help with food. Some just needed it, some didn’t have time, some just couldn’t cook, some i did as” the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!” It works! I still have the same 3 after me since the beginning of 2020. Hee hee. Men want 3 basic things…fuck , food, sleep. I got the first 2 down, if you do those right….the third comes easy! Lol 😻
No side hustle-wish I was that talented!!

I LOVED this story.

Hello! Thank you for all the chances of the 12 days!
Hi! New but loving this group! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
Hi there. Me again. I loved having time for crafting during all the time off. I sold a few epoxy decorated tumblers. And started selling on Mercari. But mostly did stuff around our house. I think your new side craft sounds so fun.
Hii!! Thanks for all the opportunities to win!
I ordered one of your gorgeous candles as part of my book box which I’m so excited to receive!
Hi! Hope you are doing well.
Hi! This is one book on my TBR. So far the Bossy Brothers are my all time fav. I listened to them while driving to Vegas. Made my time driving 1000% enjoyable.
These are amazing ❤️ Here’s to hoping!
Hi 👋 thanks
Good Morning! Thank you for providing all these fun contests for us to play! I love all the gift ideas!
No side hustle since I work as a data entry job. I love your love of making candles! Super cool & I bet it smells good.
Just popping in to say hi 👋
I didn’t need a side hustle, i prefer to stay home amd only around my friends and family. Thank you for this chance
Well, I liked the post but, it’s not letting me comment when I click on the link you posted here…I will try to find it! And, nope, no side hustle…haven’t needed it.
My only hobbies beside working is reading on my kindle phone app and looking at the dust bunnies roll around the house cause I’m too busy reading to clean!
Hi! You are so talented! Writing books, candles, and these giveaways are beautiful! Great job at making gift baskets! They are just awesome to look at!
Hello! Thanks for the opportunity!
Hello! Thank you for all you do 💜
Hi thanks for the giveaway, can wait for your new books in 2022 <3
Hi Julie! I can’t wait for Spencer to come out on Audible! My husband and I split our credits each month and I’ve slowly been buying your books. Once I buy Spencer, I’ll have that set completed as well as a couple of others. Thank you for your writing and your worlds! I love them. Have a blessed day and a Merry Christmas! Xoxo
Hey there! Thanks for the generous giveaway. My winter project is to get mine and my mom’s family pictures organized and labeled. It may take more than the winter, but, it should be fun working on this with my Mom.
Hi thanks for the chance
Hi! You are amazing! You definitely keep us hooked with your work and I hope to someday meet you to tell you this to your face! ❣Merry Christmas!
Good day to you! Since you shot down my clone idea, I think I have the answer! Elves! Like the shoemaker you have elves that come at night and make candles to help out. I must say I really would lo be the candles in this prize lot, whomever made them 😍 Be well and safe.
I love all of the things you get involved in doing, it is so inspiring! I am not creative at all, plus I am so clumsy when I try to make stuff with my hands. I do try to bake occasionally but it ends up looking like something from Nailed It! instead of what I envision in my head LOL – but it usually tastes decent at least!
It’s so fun to read an author who so completely engages with her readers on a regular basis. Freebies and hand made by Julie items are awesome, but what is really the most enjoyable is your kindness and authenticity to share a few lines of your life and thoughts with a few thousand outer circle Friends. Thank you for a 2021 full of amazing stories- laughter and tears, and EOBS’s that make me feel like we are friends. 💕
I love your side hustle 😉
Hi Julie. I hope things are going well for you. I’m writing my Christmas cards today. I’ll be honest, the cover of this book freaked me out a bit, but it also fascinated me. I wasn’t sure it would be something I’d get into since para is not at the top of my favorite genres list. But, after reading the synopsis and listening to the sample, and knowing it’s your skillful writing, I’m going to dive in. I have a few others of your books in que, so I’m adding this one to the list. Have a great Sunday. Thanks for another great prize.
Hi! Thanks for the chance to win any of these generous giveaways <3
Never came up with a side hustle. I worked at the local junior high school all throughout the pandemic. I did a lot of extra work at home learning material so I could help the students with home learning. Thanks for the absolutely amazing giveaways you are doing. They are so fabulous ❤️❤️❤️
I have not been fortunate enough to figure out a lucrative side hustle during this pandemic. The best I’ve managed is to join some book buy/sell/trade groups and sell some of my hard to find/out of print signed books. I’m still trying to figure out how to make money reading books! LOL
hi, hope your having a nice weekend!
Hi, hope your holiday shopping is going good.
Not sure my comment stuck! Hello! ❤️
I absolutely love this series I have read both books on Kindle and would be honored to have a signed copy of any of your books as you are an amazing author! I think my favorites are 321, eighteen, and meet me in the dark: Merc. I mean I’ve loved all the books I’ve read but those are my absolute favorites.
Thank you for giving all of us this chance to win these beautiful gifts you are doing things and can’t wait to see what you write next. Damaged God’s was actually the first book like this that I’ve ever read Thank you for opening my eyes and mind to something new ❤
Nope no side hustle over here. I’m on SS and work at Home Depot who took very good care of us. All the overtime we wanted and bonus for everyone. If you worked 20 hrs a wk you got one bonus and if you worked 35 you got double. Plus all kinds of extra days off with pay.
I don’t really have a side hustle, but I love to see, mostly making quilts, but I have made bags, table runners, placemats and the like. It’s so rewarding to see your finished creation! I don’t sell my stuff because I don’t feel it’s good enough, lol I do a lot of unseeing too. 🤗
s has been fun for me. I’m not real big on social media, but this has gotten me out here daily thanks to your emails.
Hi and thank you again for this
Hi, I work at the hospital so I didn’t need a side hustle we were so short staffed I had overtime every single week. Thanks for the chance!
Hello, I discovered your books last year. I love them.
Hello from Florida! <3
Awesome giveaway. Thank you for the chance. Merry Christmas 🎄
Hi!! Wow, this one looks especially pretty!! Thanks so doing this… so exciting!
I just want to say I Loved Damaged Gods. The story was so unique and every time I turned around there was a new twist. I love all Huss and Cross books, but this was one of my favorites. Also, Hi from Georgia!👋
I am in love with all your books. Thank you for giving us the chance to win these wonderful gifts.
Have a wonderful Christmas
Love all your beautiful creations Julie. I like the “witchy” things as well. Not a spell caster either but do enjoy beautiful crystals and stones and the meanings and healing powers associated with each of them. Happy Holidays! 💚🎄❤️
Hi again! Thanks for the chance and good luck everyone
Thank you for the chance. Merry Christmas
Hello, happy Sunday. I wish I had time for a good side hustle. A few years ahoy I’d help my husband with his side hustle of flipping four wheelers and dirt bikes. He would buy them cheap and fix them up then sell them for a nice profit.
Last year I tried doing some woodworking projects. I got all the stuff to make giant wooden outside clocks. But by the time I got everything cut I had to stop for a bit and when I got back to it all the wood cracked and got funky.
Hi..thanks for the chance
Hi there! Love the blog, love the books, and love these creative giveaways! Thanks for the opportunity.
Hi babe! You are amazing
Hi!☘️ Thanks for the chance!
Hi. Love all your cute candles!
Hi! What an amazing gift!
Hi! Thank you for the chance 🙏☺! I hope you had a great weekend!
I use my husbands Facebook page on this kindle so I’m Karen Hicks, not Kelley 😂 He has never seen his Facebook page!
Hi! Round about 2016 I started crafting wine bottles, drilled holes in the back inserted a string of lights. They sold real well around Christmas. I made them to order, football teams, Harley, pets, holidays. Also made wreaths for people, and myself! I’m going to have to try your candles, bet they are amazing!
I love the books. Enjoy the fantastic giveaways and hope to win one. Merry Christmas.
Thanks for all the great books and prize opportunities.
I have been selling on eBay for going on 20 years. I also sell things of eBay for a local consignment store. Her eBay, my work. During shutdown I was not without a job as I have been working from home for my boss for years. Right before shut down I opened an Etsy and Poshmark account. I have done well with those 2 sites as well. I think you would kill it on Etsy. Just let your fans know you have an Etsy store and you will be sold out of everything all the time. You could sell your books on Etsy as well as they are handmade by you. I would love to get my hands on one of your homemade journals. So please consider doing an Etsy store.
Hello from Tennessee!
If I had a side hustle…. It would be helping the head hustler hustle his heavy, highly hairy, harping, habitually happy howling………puppies. 🤷♀️What can I say not what you were expecting huh? Sort of like my girl Pie in your brilliant “Damaged Gods” 💜x
No side hustle for me. I work in a grocery store, so it was interesting to see things change.
Thanks for the chance!
Sorry no side hustle for me just more babysitting for family because of daycare shortages! This is the box I’ve waited for!!!! I loved this book so much and can’t wait for book two to read more about this couple and especially Tarq the Minotaur!!!!! He’s so fucking hot!!!! Ty! For the chance!💋💕

Hi. Hope your day was a spectacular one.
Season Greetings!!! Looking forward to checking out Pie’s Apothecary. 😍
I’m not on any social media, but wanted to comment on how gorgeous the stuff pictured looks! I don’t have any side hustles and the only real hobby I had was repainting my garden statues. But thanks to my kids schedules and me being the unpaid Uber driver, I haven’t had time for them. But I do read when I don’t have a migraine, and when I do I play Animal Crossing, while I’m waiting in the car. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Holidays!
Got out of work an hour early! Woot woot! Now I can start reading for me 🙂
HI!! Just wanted to say how very talented you are!!
Hi Julie !! I hope to get a candle of yours soon! I loveee candles! I might just look into making my own 🙂

Your witchy creations are beautiful. I love the way you display the gift items for each give-away package. It looks like someone’s prized possessions put together in a scrapbook.
I have not read Damaged Gods yet, but the synopsis is interesting and the quote below had me cracking up. I’d blush too.
“But ya know where he doesn’t have fur?
Which is fine.
Except he doesn’t wear pants.”
Thanks for all the fun and adventure you bring through your work.
Thank you for the chance. Damaged Gods is one of my favorites!

Hey Julie, have a good day!
Your KC Cross books are right up my alley. They make me smile. 🙂 I’ve been sick a lot the past several years. My first books of yours were Rook and Ronin and I read EVERY book along the way until six years ago when cancer got me. Since then, sadly it’s been hit and miss. But I was SO EXCITED when you went into outer space with your romance. It’s the quirkiness I LOVE! I can fully escape from real life and believe in strange things for just a little while.
Next thing, I need to get my book review blog back up and running again. It’s still there, just stale with no new content and needs a new look. I don’t think I had the energy to review any of the KC Cross books I have. Time for a re-read! 🙂
Hi, love your books.
Just came to say hi
This book was my first book of yours I read! And I am so glad I did. Thank you for giving me an escape for a few hours.

Hi, hope you have an awesome day.
OMG! As soon as I read this I was laughing! It made me remember when my brother and I were in like 4th or 5th grade.
Back then it was normal for kids to be “latchkey” kids which means that we would go home right after school with strict rules about staying in the house. Well, for some reason we decided in would be genius to have a yard sale, but we did not know what to sell. Going through the cupboards we saw that our parents had tons of coffee mugs so we figured they would not notice if we sold a few! Well, the neighbor, who was really nosy called my mom at work and before we knew it mom was pulling up mad as all get out! We thought she would be very impressed with our business skills, yup, we were very wrong! LOL, we were threatened with being grounded for the rest of our lives! Needless to say, that was my first and last side hustle!
Hi! That’s all you asked me to do so that’s all I’m going to do right now. Sometimes I’m such a goofball.
Hi girls, have a good week😘
Thank you for the chance! Happy holidays
Thank you for being so generous. These giveaways are amazing!!
Hello! Thank you for sharing your imagination with the world and for your amazing give aways.
Good evening!!! and Hello!
Happy Holidays too you! Thank you so much for the chance!
Hello Beautiful!! and Happy Holidays to you.
We got thru day by day, taking care of my father who’s got dementia. Making everything, every moment a memory
Have a magical holiday season!
Hello and Merry Christmas
Thanks for the chance!! Happy Holidays
How cool that you make the candles and “witchy” stuff! Thanks for another awesome giveaway and prize.
Okay, so side hustle, not yet. But plans for side hustle/publications? Absolutely. As a designer tho, I probably should have a side hustle by now. Lol I make stuff for people for fun, haven’t gotten a plan together yet for a business. But it’s on the list! Lol 😆 Thanks so much for the chance! Happy Holidays! 🎄💕
Thankfully I was still working full time while the world slowed down but it was a blessing in disguise; it forced us to slow down too & I spent more time with my kids, hubby & dogs doing things we enjoyed like playing games, walking/hiking, watching old movies, home projects, etc. it was the pause button we didn’t know we needed ♥️
Hi!💜 Thank you for the chance to win one of your amazing gifts!!🖤💜🖤
Hello! Happy December and best wishes to you and your family 🥰
HEYHEYHEY I hope you are having an amazing wonderful day!!
Julie, you inspired me to look into candle making. My granddaughter likes to visit so I plan activities. We’ve made cookies, pop-up birthday cards, jigsaw puzzles, and I’m going to teach her to knit and crochet. I think candles would be a good adventure. We all love candles in this family. She can use them for gifts.
Love all of your giveaways.
Hi , thank you for the chance
Hi Ya! I make my own greeting cards – holiday cards – birthday cards. I sell for Stampin’ UP – a paper / craft company. I love making the cards throughout the year.
Hi..thanks for the chance
Hi – I haven’t read Damaged Gods yet but I really want to make time over the festive period, when I’m not working, to do so. The cover is gorgeous and I love the blurb. <3

Thanks for the chance. I did not come up with a side hustle. However, if I need to I’m sure I could come up with something to do
Hello!! Can’t believe how close to Christmas it is already.
Hi. Thank you
Hi Julie, can’t wait to start the Damaged Gods series.
Not really a side hustle I guess, but I started doing Personal Home Care for my niece who had 3 strokes last year at the age of 22. She needs help with many things now and I was available.
Hi happy holidays… I am a notary and started doing closing for mortgages. Where j have to zoom call the clients and watch them sign from the car.
Hey love, this daily giveaway thing is so exciting. One of my side hustles is making blankets.
Hey there! Have a great day!

The only side Hussling I did was at work. I work at the Magic Kingdom Theme Park and when the Parks reopened I was sent to Disney Springs temporarily. I hate shopping there let alone work there but for 6 Long Bloody Months I hussled my Ass off not to work there. I did trades, begged people, even offered to bake cookies but the 2 days yes you read it right the 2 days out of 6 months I did work there were actually my last days I was called back to my location. LOL In my 10 years of working at Disney those 6 months was the hardest I’d ever worked. Hahaha
