Rene Gutteridge and Boo, Humbug! WIN FREE BOOK


Please welcome author and friend, Rene Gutteridge. I met Rene online, then at a writer's retreat last summer. She's as charming and wonderful as you would imagine. Humble, sweet, loves her God and her family.

She's revising her popular Boo series with a Christmas installation
Boo, Humbug! stirring up a large amount of holiday havoc.

It's Christmastime in Skary, and the town is planning an original production of A Christmas Carol with a horror spin.

As showtime approaches, things go very awry for director Lois Stepaphanopolis. She panics when she discovers that her marketing director loathes Christmas and that the audience has been promised not Dickens' A Christmas Carol, but the real Christmas story. Can the actors pull off the improv of all improvs and convince their community to embrace the true meaning of the Christmas season?

Boo, Humbug! offers readers a delightful glimpse into small town, community life with heartwarming humor and winsome characters. And in the end, the true meaning of Christmas shines out bright and clear, in a decidedly un-Skary way.

Rene Gutteridge is the author of 10 novels, including the Boo series, the Storm series, The Occupational Hazards series and My Life as a Doormat, a Women of Faith selection for 2006. She has been published over 30 times as a playwright, and holds a degree in screenwriting, graduating magna cum laude from Oklahoma State University . Rene is married to Sean, a musician, and they have two young children. They make their home in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Not only are you a fantastic fiction writer, you also write great reviews. Because of your recommendations I have found other great writers. You made the Boo series sound so good, that I am now awaiting their delivery. I thoroughly enjoyed the books I won from your site and I've enjoyed the books that I bought after reading about them, or their authors, here. Good writing, good writers.....what more could any fan ask? What can I say?......Just "Thanks", I guess.

Rene is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her books except "Snitch" so far, and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Thanks for having her on your blog.

This sounds like a great book! I read "Scoop" and really liked it, and from the review, "Boo Humbug" sounds like one I'd like as well. Please enter me in your contest!

Have I missed the drawing? If not, put my name in! I have read Rene's other books--and by the way, I live in Indiana, so I know these places and people! Ha!

Fun interview, thanks Rene and Rachel.

I made the mistake of reading BOO HUMBUG first. Great book, but I wish I'd read them in order. BOO was fantastic and I'm now reading BOO WHO. I have BOO HISS and another of her books GHOST WRITER waiting in the wings. I am so glad that you "introduced" this author to me. The books are hard to put down and I'm glad I ordered them. Now I'm looking forward to adding SWEET CAROLINE by Rachel Hauck to my growing library.
