I had this crazy idea about a town in Alaska who does Christmas backwards. Think upside down Christmas trees, stepping on mistletoe instead of standing under it, and taking presents TO Santa Claus for him to distribute to those in need. I inserted a character who was gung ho with Christmas and one who didn't want anything to do with the holiday and gave them a romantic history. Backwards Christmas was born and I'm excited to announce it will be available for YOU to read this holiday season!
It's tenatively scheduled to release November 20th. I won't be very active with the release at that time, but I plan to do what I can around the date and before the holidays. The cover will be available for viewing soon so watch for that! The short story is about 40 pages long in a word document so it can be read in one sitting. It has elements of comedy in it, as do many of my novels these days. One particular incident nearly happened to someone in my family so that person (who shall remain nameless, dad) should get a grin from that scene.
Keep watching for details, but for now, here's a short summary!
Local tour guide Noelle Richards loves everything Backwards Christmas has to offer in South Pole, Alaska. She gets wrapped up in the upside down trees, taking presents TO Santa Clause and all the festivities. Sled dog trainer Chris Furst, on the other hand, approaches the holiday with nothing but skepticism. When their history bubbles into the present, their difference of opinion comes to a head. When Chris gets himself into a dangerous situation in the snow, Noelle and the hope of Christ are his only hope for redemption.
