The Facebook Cup of Christmas Cheer Launch Party was a huge success.

Forty-nine readers and A Cup of Christmas Cheer authors joined to celebrate the release of volumes 3 & 4 during the Facebook event that took place Thursday, November 6.

The four hours of fun included author chats, get-to-know-you questions and giveaways. Lots and lots of giveaways.

A Cup of Christmas Cheer authors donated novels they’d written. Every half hour one or more of these titles was offered in a giveaway. A grand prize of all four volumes of A Cup of Christmas Cheer was offered as well.

Excitement built throughout the event as our guests responded to posts, answered questions and got to know more about the Cup of Christmas Cheer authors and about one another.

  1. Loved your Facebook party, Keli! SO much fun and such lively conversation. Thanks for the smiles! (And I look forward to reading all the authors’ great stories in A Cup of Christmas Cheer!

    • Thank YOU, Sarah! I know you spent countless hours preparing for the party. Your hard work showed, and it paid off in a big way. Thanks to your efforts, things went very well and fun was had by all those who attended.

      • Thanks for the nice party! And thank you for the books I won. Will fill some of these snowy Winter days coming up 🙂

  2. Last night was so much fun! I had to slip in and out a few times but I was able to respond to most of the questions and I learned so much about the authors. Thanks to all and congratulations on a job well done!!

    • Connie, I’m so glad you were able to join us. The conversations were lively. weren’t they? I loved reading all the comments and learning about all the guests.

  3. I’m so sorry I missed the party. My uncle died that night and we were all pretty upset. I totally forgot about it. I’m really sorry to let y’all down on that. And especially Sarah who put so much time into setting it up.

    In His Love,
