Five Days of Christmas Spirit Giveaway - Day 3

In an effort to share some holiday spirit, I will be giving away at the end of this week a gift card for all of you book lovers. To participate, all you have to do is post a comment. You can enter once a day. At the end of the week, I will draw one name for the win! Just tell us what you either A) would do; or B) you did do.


On the third day of Scott's Christmas, the publishing world gave to me... The check for my advance shows up.

NOTE: The more people who participate will increase the amount of the gift card!

Disclaimer: Individuals entering more than once per day will be eliminated from the drawing. Individuals using this to post 'SPAM' like messages will also be eliminated from the drawing and their messages will be deleted.


  1. Fist pumps would be involved, and then a quick trip to the bank. So fingers crossed this will happen someday.

  2. Depending on the size of the advance, I might worry that my book wouldn't earn out the advance and I would be asked to pay something back.

  3. I would hightail it down to the bank and make a deposit. Then, I would swing by Starbucks and order an overpriced, but very yummy coffee.

  4. I'd call my DH, while jumping up and down, and scream into the phone about the wonderful check. Then, I'd make sure to head to Starbucks to celebrate, and deposit the check before I lost it! :)

  5. Honestly, I would worry about what I would do with it, because it's a nightmare to cash checks in my country. However, I wouldn't worry too much if the sum were large :)

  6. Love those advances. Got my very first advance check today for 3 of my books sold into Manga - yay!Best wishes for the festive season.
