Murder reminds Detective Helene Collias that crime doesn’t take holidays. And the last victim she expected to find in her case files this Christmas is the sister of her old flame, Sean Grant. Ordinarily, Helene’s psychic gifts give her an edge but this time, that gift has short-circuited. Could her lingering attraction to Sean be blurring her abilities, or is something more sinister at work?
Not saying we have it as bad as those of you getting snowed on but WOW did the temps drop this weekend! (And we’re already–slightly–warming back up).
And I finally got Draft2Digital figured out. Their support was wonderful. 🙂 So if you’re an indie author and looking for a way to go “wide” I’d say give them a try.
Also, I’ve got a new freebie short story up, for Christmas entitled No Such Thing as Dasher. It’s a holiday themed short story. The synopsis is as follows:
For Avery, her holiday duties as a forest ranger oftentimes involve tracking revelers who have lost their way in her wilderness domain. After a camper clashes with a reindeer, however, Avery is shocked to discover the creature is defended not by Santa, but by the formidable, yet gentle, shapeshifting Lord of the Forest.
Can the magic of the forest bring together a ranger and a supernatural being, or is Avery destined to celebrate yet another Christmas alone?
An enchanting fairy tale to celebrate the magic of the season!
Please note, there are some Amazon stores at which the story might not yet be free but I’m hoping they will come in line with the others before New Year’s. If it’s not free where you are, please check back.
I hope you enjoy this little freebie short story, and have a lovely Christmas!
Everyone does a list like this every year. The problem with Christmas movies, is… they’re all the same, all so darned sickeningly sweet, aren’t they? You have to have a stomach for those kind of things, and—call me the black sheep—I don’t. Make it a little different, maybe a tad . . . dark and I’m in. So here, then is my list of . . .
Top Five Christmas movies that don’t annoy me
1.The Nightmare Before Christmas
2. Bad Santa
3. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
4. Christmas Story
5. The trailer for Rise of the Guardians. (Because a) I just couldn’t come up with another Christmas movie that didn’t annoy me, and b) I’ve not seen the movie yet. Maybe it will annoy me when I see it).
Looks cute, doesn’t it? Runners up, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and The Grinch, the 1975 cartoon with Boris Karloff. Because, hey, Boris Karloff. 🙂
So what can you think of any others to add to this list? What are you favorite Christmas movies?
Thanks to everyone who followed me. I’ll get the winner up tomorrow (or Monday at latest depending on what happens this weekend. I mean, The Hobbit‘s coming out this weekend, isn’t it? *squee* Older followers can tell you weekends and blog time aren’t my strong suit).
Whoops! need more coffee. I put this in the wrong blog. *facepalm*
I hope your day’s going well. I’m *gulp* doing some Christmas related stuff today. At least getting it started. Also, I just popped in to say *facepalm* I missed a spotlight yesterday. I was featured at Jean Marie Bauhaus’ blog. (Don’t you just love her name? :)) It’s here if you want to see:
