Alrighty, since this is a December book and it right smack in the middle of several holidays that revolve around family, giving, celebrating, we are giving you your options.

Now, keep in mind that the book you vote for can have holidays included, but that it will heavily have to be dependent and expressive towards that subject.

If you vote BoJoy, then your story is about joy, in any context. It doesn't have to have anything to do with any holiday going on right now.

If you vote BoGifting, this will have to be about giving and receiving gifts, though not necessarily concentrating on the holidays that have that as a theme.

If you vote BoFamily, then your story is heavily about family. It doesn't have to have anything to do with holidays at all, though it can. But Family is the primary subject.

If you vote BoCelebrations, then this is almost exclusively this season's celebrations. To list a few, there is Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's.

=D Gimme, gimme, gimme gifts Book of Gifting!

I do not sound greedy, do I? =P

But seriously, I'd be happy to write on any of these themes. =) (And this time I won't fall into not delivering like with the Oct. Book. RAWR!)

Need to do Family stuff.

Very interesting choices. I ended up voting for the Book of Gifting. When the words "gift" and "story" come to mind, there seems to be endless possibilities, gifts of power (like some magic ring your eccentric uncle gives you on your birthday), special talents (like being able to control the creatures of the deep), or even just the "normal" ones that are under the Christmas tree. I'd love to read the creative ideas that spawn from any of these (and more) possible interpretations.

The way that you abbreviated the books got me thinking, if we were to have a Book of Knowledge in the future, would it be abbreviated BoKnows?. Sorry, it had to be done. XD

Joy. I have a tragic story that's been in my head that may fit into this.

Joy. I wanna see Pie's story. And I might try my hand at it myself.

I voted for Celebrations. There are so many avenues I could pursue with Celebrations.

Book of Joy. Because during holidays, everyone should be happy. :D

I voted for Family, as well. This time, I think I'll be trying to get something in. No holding back, Silver, no holding back!

Yeah, Family. Just makes me think of Christmas eve and a family tucked in at home, enjoying the warmth of the fireplace. =D

A beautiful Rose,
always and forever

I went for Gifting out of sheer laziness. I've already got something on file which could be tweaked and submitted for gifting, but if any of the others win I'll have to write something new. Looks like Joy might win, though, so maybe I ought to start thinking...

I voted for Joy, since Gifting, Celebrations and Family all seem to be too much about Winter (which has already been covered). It's also an interesting topic for me.

Family. There's so many twisted things that can be done to families... XD

Constructively Friendly!

@ Drak
Not on the other side of the world. It felt a bit funny writing for the Book of Winter last summer... =P
Gifting could be birthdays, engagements, weddings, special days, no particular reason at all... Celebrations happen all through the year: end-of-term holidays, blue shoelace day... And family could be pretty much anything involving people or pets. =D

Voted for Family, but I'm sure I can tweak the story to fit most of the other themes. To though's following the story, here's a hint, its about Orvis' heritage

I wonder if Book of Gifting could become Book of Gifts and Giving? We had that with Book of Luck I believe, and Book of Gifting is just a bit hard on the mouth compared to the other word that springs to mind.

I went for the book of gifts, as I think that presents and the giving of things can make for some intriguing stuff.

Legendary AK!!!

My vote went to the book of joy. My normal style of writing is dark and grim, so I thought I would do a 180 and challenge myself by writing something different.
Heck, I`ll come up with something even if another book idea will win.

Definitely an interesting race to the finish. I am very interested in how this turns out, in part because I can't write the intro to the next book until the vote is done, but also, knowing what I am writing next month is always a good thing.

@Eukara Vox - Though it seems the Book of Joy will win the race, unless alot of people suddenly vote forGifting/Family/Celebrations.

I have ACT's on the 11th of December, so I might be a tad late.

Seems that the Book of Joy is the Book for December. Start planning!

I'll try my hand at this. Joy is not my forte. You'll definitely see that in most of my usual writing. So, this should be a learning experience for me.
