She will be graciously offering two books : the anthologies The Magical Christmas Cat and An Enchanted Season to two lucky winners.
Wednesday – John Marco: writer of Fantasy books. John Marco has a new book coming out in 2009 and we will be reviewing it so we thought we should invite him for Smugglivus – and he said yes!

More details to follow.
