Give me Questions and get Prizes! No seriously, read this for the chance at some incredible prizes!

So by now you have probably heard of The Twelve Books for Christmas party that is happening in December.   (If not, CLICK HERE).

Now, you see when you have to interview one author, it is always fun to come up with crazy fun questions.  You can take a few days maybe, maybe you have a little more time to come up with crazy things to ask. 

With the Twelve Books for Christmas party, I have to write 6 interview questions for (literally) dozens of authors.  This year we have enough room for (at least) 72 authors. 
Do the math.  6 interview questions per author, that comes to 432 interview questions! 

Now a few of those questions can be the same but honestly, if we do all the interviews the same what fun is it?  No fun at all really. 

Last year Lizzy and I wrote 216 questions in a matter of days.  This year I have had all year to plan and I still don’t have enough unique questions. 

SO, this is the reason I am talking about this.   I have decided that seems how this magnificent party is for YOU to get to know the authors; I am going to let YOU ask the questions. 

No really, I want you to comment below with as many crazy questions as possible that we can ask the awesome authors who are participating.

But that’s not all.  You see, if I can get all of you wonderful, awesome followers to come up with all 432+ questions, I am going to have the craziest giveaway ever. 
And if you submit questions, you are automatically entered to win!

Comment below with your questions, leave your e-mail in the comments so I can contact you if you win, and share this post as much as possible!  Get as many people to comment with questions so we can have this crazy giveaway!
