Author Carey Heywood is celebrating this holiday season by giving away a signed/personalized set of Him and Her paperbacks!

Here’s a little bit about the series (the blurb for #1):

Sarah Miller hasn’t been home in seven years. She thought she could stay away forever. If it wasn’t for her big brother’s wedding, that is. Part of her even feels silly for staying away this long. It’s not like anyone even knew what happened. Well, except for him.

That guy. The one she compared all others to. The one who set the bar so high no other guy after him could even compete. The one who made her feel like anything was possible. The one she thought she would never be good enough for. The one she spent the last seven years trying to forget.

All she needs to do is make it through the next week without running into him.

Yeah… I think she’s gonna be outta luck with that. ;) Or my guess says, in luck! :D

And look what else! Carey lets us into some personal “tidbits” about her books.

1. Will Price is inspired by every single guy I ever had a crush on.

2. I was writing another book when I got the idea for Him. Even though I’ve written Him, Her, Better and am halfway done writing Sawyer’s story that 20k word doc hasn’t been touched since Jan.

3. Their hometown of Decatur was inspired by my obsession with the HGTV show Curb Appeal -The Block. I may also have a crush on its host John Gidding.

4. While writing Her I asked my husband what a male ejaculation feels like. He said, “good.” I asked if he could elaborate. He said, “really good.” I ended up googling it.

5. There is a piece of me in every female lead I write. Sarah constantly spinning her thumb ring is 100% me. My thumb ring also came from a gum ball machine.

Not having read these books, pining for seven years seems a bit much, but most of us experienced irrational feelings about young love crushes/boyfriends.
