I also love, love, love writing Christmas stories!!!! They make me smile, any time of year! This year, several of my Seeker author friends and I got together and wrote BOXED SETS OF CHRISTMAS!!!!
I'm happy dancing!
I'm not decking the halls yet, because that would be SILLY, but I love that this dream of working with these wonderful ladies is now a written reality!
We did two sets, available for pre-order now: Hope for the Holidays Contemporary Collection and Hope for the Holidays Historical Collection
I HAD SO MUCH FUN WITH THIS!!!! In the contemporary collection my contribution is "Longing for a Miracle" a heart-stirring story about life, love, loss and faith. Christmas can be a wretchedly tough time for people who've suffered losses. The joy of music in the mall slices deep into a weeping heart... but this Christmas brings a turning point in the most unexpected of circumstances for Natasha Sorkos... and the second chance at happiness that eluded her a few years before.
OH, THEN!!!! Laughing here, because I turned the tables in my historical and had SO MUCH FUN WITH THIS!!!!
I took a gruff and guilt-riddled English immigrant to 19th century Idaho... a pioneer who really has no great love for PEOPLE.... and planted a wagon train of woebegones on his doorstep in mid-November.... He wanted to have a choice, but.... sigh... the option was to help... or shrug off their imminent demise in the cold, hostile conditions of an upcoming winter.
I LOVE GRUFF HEROES! Edward Stillwell is a diamond-in-the-rough, but when former prostitute Sylvie Schuler accepts his offer of a job keeping house, he's in for a new normal he never saw coming... and desperately needed... in "A Town Called Christmas".
We've got the stories up for pre-order now, the pre-order will be downloaded in just three weeks!!! November 10, 2015 is the official RELEASE DATE, just in time for holiday fun... faith... hope... and cheer!
Here on the farm we're putting things away for the winter. It's that time again, to stack firewood, batten down the hatches, and stock the freezer! Why do I always feel better with a stocked cupboard (MESSY, BUT WITH SOME FOOD!), food in the freezer and stacks of wood in the garage.
Is it a girl thing? Or a Northerner thing? Either way, I love feeling ready!
