Welcome to my monthly feature I’m calling Caffeine Corner. Once a month I’ll be posting a little something and giving away a free copy of a book (could be an e-book too—depending on my mood) and a fun mug to one person who comments and is subscribed to my blog.
For December’s chat, imagine you have a snow day–what are you going to do with the free day? For those who’ve never lived with snow–a snow day is a day where school and work are cancelled due to the depth of the snow and how it impedes the city. Here in Seattle that happens with 2″ because we’re just not geared for it. The grade of the streets in this are can be exceptionally steep and we get snow so rarely that it’s unusual. In fact, we had a rare day with snow yesterday–here are a couple pics from my yard!
In your comments please specify whether you are in the US, that you are 18+ and make certain you subscribe to my blog. Now, tell me about YOUR snow day! I’ll pick one of you to send a backlist copy of one of my books (print this time) and a mug that you can fill with whatever drink you want while you curl up in the summer sun to read. Enter by midnight December 8th.

And I’m 39 I left that part out for above sorry
I live Alabama but I grew up Oklahoma, we got snow in Oklahoma. I loved snow days there. All the neighborhood kids would build snow forts and bomb each other with snow balls. We would be out there all day. We would use my dad’s socks for gloves and we went through his socks lol to keep our hands warm. I with Alabama got snow. I lived in new York for a few months in the winter now that is snow! Blessed be
Growing up snow days generally were if the buses couldn’t get their chains on and the snow was more then 6″ or so, but now I live where snow is just seen on the distant mountain peaks. If I want a snow day I have to take a personal day from work. I’m definitely over 18 by a few years.
I’m way over 18 and living in Phoenix. I’ve never had a snow day in my life, but if I did, I’d definitely go out and play in the snow! Make a snow angel or two, and have a snowball fight with my next door neighbor. Then I’d run back inside, grab a book, tea, warm slippers and a blanket, and read to my heart’s content.
I live in the same state and no snow.
I’m 35 and live in Mississippi. Here we get more ice days than snow days. I love curling up on the couch and reading, and cooking a good stew. And, of course, getting up every five minutes to either let the dog in or let the dog out until he finally gets tired and goes to sleep.
I live in the US currently on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I grew up in the Midwest and then moved to Alaska for 10 years so do understand snow days. I am way over the age of 18 in fact am do to retire next year. The perfect snow day for me would be to get up early play in the snow for a while just enjoying the sight of fresh white goodness, then go inside and have a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate, sit in front of the fireplace and either knit or crochet ( always have a project going) then get a good book and read curled up with our fur baby who hates the cold so she will want to snuggle Thank you for bringing back some really good memories.
I am over the age of 18, I turn 40 on New Years Eve 🙂 I am in South Eastern Pennsylvania (USA), so we could end up with anything from ice, flurries, an inch or two or a foot of snow. We get a little of everything, lol. But I wouldn’t live anywhere else. My idea of a great snow day would be spending it with my fur babies, cuddled up in bed under all the blankets, watching old movies and reading a Yasmine Galenorn book.
I have subscribed to your blog. Thank you for offering this chance to win an awesome prize. I am a huge fan and count down to the releases of new books and sometimes reread books just to get a Yasmine fix 🙂 Happy Holidays!!
I’m in the US and over 18. On my snow day I will be drinking a yummy cup of hot Non dairy peppermint mocha with 4 shots of Expresso (recipe I got from someone REALLY awesome *grin), snuggled on the comfy couch with my little chihuahuas, in front of a nice fire in the fireplace, reading a really good book from someone REALLY awesome *grin. I Love your books! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win some!!
I’m in Ohio and definitely over 18. On my snow day I would be sitting in my favorite recliner, snuggled up in my Harley blanket. I would have a big mug of chamomile tea on the table and a book in my hand. Oh my favorite kind of day.
I’m in the US and over 18. I was raised in the midwest so am very familiar with REAL snow days when you get a foot or two of snow to shovel. As a kid, those days were the best because school was definitely cancelled. I moved to Pennsylvania where 2 snowflakes would cause the entire office where I was working to declare they had to go home now as it was snowing. 🙂 Now I live in Oregon where we only see snow occasionally which is fine with me. And because I’m retired, if there is snow, I can sit at home with a hot beverage and enjoy it!
I live in Chattanooga, TN. Where just like Seattle if we get 2 in snow day , we haven’t gotten more than a couple inches in about 5 years but I love it when it snow. My snow day is playing in the snow for a time then coming in and getting into my cozy pjs getting some hot chocolate or tea, then getting on the couch and reading some, watch a good movie with my hubby may be plan a board game with him then at some point both of us would go back to reading. Now I’m ready for a snow day
Iam UK (hope that doesn’t count agenst me) iamniamn over 18.
The last snow day I remember was when I was 14. We don’t get to much my side of the UK lol. It was unexpected to say the lest. I went to do my paper round as normal but we were all sent home to see if we were off school or not. I had to get a school bus so I got a snow day but my brother and sister (both younger) had to go. I did my paper round then went to see friends. One of our friends had a small old quarry in her back yard so we spent hours sledding in a old plastic paddling pool (that’s all we had) until one of the guys almost lost his manhood on a rock! Then we went inside and drank hot Ribbna and play monopoly before walking back to our village along the edge of fields in knee deep snow! It was an amazing day I’ll never forget, a memory I hold tight as we all moved away from each other not long after and lost touch. Was so much fun the BEST kind of snow day!
I’m in the US and definitely 18+. I work in the aerospace industry in satellite operations, so if I actually get a snow day that means the weather is awful. Then I’ll be watching my husband shovel and providing been rubs and hot drinks. I actually dislike dealing with snow, truthfully.
I’m over 18, live in the US and I would curl up with a book and read while drinking coffee and hot cocoa!
I am in AZ and over 18. We don’t have a lot of snow days in Arizona. A snow day from the past is seeing it snow in Phoenix and watching my small niece play in the backyard in total awe of the white stuff falling from the sky. It was a magical day.
I am 50. On snow days you can always find me with a book, a cup of tea or coffee, a candle and mind wandering while I stare out the window. In Oklahoma we don’t get many snow days, but are more likely to end up with layers of ice everywhere. It is dangerous, but so beautiful. Everything sparkles and and almost glows. It looks like a shiny glass wonderland.
I’m in the US and over 18, also subscribed. I’m in Upstate NY so we get a lot of snow. When there is a snow day here, my 13 year old son is tickled pink. It is a lazy day full of movies, playing and eating. I love it when it is snowing hard and you can stay in and enjoy family.
I am a grandmother of 9 living in southwestern Pennsylvania-way over the age of 18- and subscribe to the blog. I’ve enjoyed snow days all my life, but at this age my favorite thing to do is watch the snow from inside with my dog and bunch of kitties while alternating reading with working on huge jigsaw puzzles and drinking hot cocoa with Michael Buble music playing in the background!
I’m over 18 years old and live in the US. If I had a snow day, I would more than likely spend the day reading. I love when we get snow days. For me it is a day to spend at home with my family. We typically all read for a portion of the day. Since it’s December, we would also watch a Christmas movie together.
I live in Oklahoma and am over 18 and on many of my snow days it starts with a plate of pancakes with syrup and bacon. This while in my fuzzy pj’s, later I have a mug of hot chocolate with lots of mini marshmallows (yum) and I’ll venture out long enough to get lots of fresh snow to make snow ice cream! In between all this activity I’ll be sitting back in my recliner with my personal heating pad, Hobo, my kitty, and reading.
P. S. I’ll probably take a nap or two also. 🙂
Definitely 18+ and in the US =)
My snow day would be spent under the blankets with a hot cup of coffee or cocoa and my laptop. I would either be doing schoolwork (I know, schoolwork on a snow day…yikes!) or writing. Finishing up my first ever novel now and have 2-3 more to go in the series plus some prequels my sister insists I write haha! I have two authors that fill the inspiration board in my mind and one of them is you. I love your writing style and your move to indie has been inspirational. Thank you for being the awesome person that you are and an author I can look up to!
Snow days are a dream for me in the Central/South Texas area. Ice days maybe, but no snow days. Ice on the roads will shut everything down, including the school where I teach. On the rare ice day, I love to curl up with a cup of coffee or hot tea, and either read or write. My two fur kitty babies are usually next to me or on top of me, though Bear will worm his way under the blanket.
My snow day would first include taking care of “the natives” in the house both 2 and four footed. Immediately following breakfast, I would grab either a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, curl up in my favorite chair with blanket and read the day away.
I am over 18 and subscribe to the blog; I live in Central Illinois – so yes, I’m well aware of “snow days.” Grew up in the 80s, my children have no clue what Blizzard Conditions truly means, but still they have enjoyed a snow day at least once or twice a school year.
On my snow day I love to curl up in either bed or a chair with a cup of tea and a good book. Living here in Maine we have 4 or more snow days. And yes I am over 18.
I am in the US, and way over 18. I am Florida so I don’t get any snow days, but, hurricane days 🙂 On my snow day I would crank up the heat, then leap out of bed and make some hot chocolate. After it was ready I would hop back into bed under a cozy blanket, with my kindle and three kitties and read the day away.
