I know, Halloween and Thanksgiving have to come first and then we celebrate Christmas. This is always a very special time of year for those of us who celebrate the birth of Christ. But there is a commercial side of Christmas and publishers like that, too. Christmas stories are all the rage in women’s fiction and romance. So I thought I’d get a jump start on tooting my Christmas horn since I have several books coming out during the season.
First, a reissue of a novella titled “Sleigh Bells Ring” with authors Sandra Bricker, Barbara Scott and Lynette Sowell. This collection was published a year ago by Gilead, and sadly, Sandy passed away near the launch time of the book. I miss her every day and I’m so thankful she came into my life. But we can celebrate her memory since each of the novellas are being reissued as stand alone novellas. Available late October. Here is my cover:
Next, I’m one of the authors in an Indie boxed collection, along with some friends. This one will be out in November: Love this cover! My story is set in Key West.
And finally, in December, I have a Love Inspired Suspense out with my friend Terri Reed. Christmas writing is fun when you share it with friends! That’s what the season is all about–being with loved ones and I do love my writer family!
I consider the amazing women on this blog as part of that support system and family. What do you plan to read during the holiday season? What is your favorite Christmas story?
