It's time to celebrate!!

Our baby has a name!
What? You didn't know I had a baby in progress? LoL. Actually, some of you did. It's the Christmas anthology I've been compiling.

Awhile ago the idea to put together a Christmas anthology hit me. It was a full-blown brain blizzard. I put it off but the idea wouldn't leave me alone so I finally shared it with some people...and that led to going for it.

A group of us, represented by the wonderful Linda Glaz, decided to take the plunge and go for getting a book out in time for Christmas. I've had the privilege of compiling the book and I have to tell you, I have been SO BLESSED by the stories. I cannot wait to share them with you!

At this point I don't have a cover or release date but that's okay. The book is well underway and it's all I can do to sit quietly and wait.

Oh, wait!
I still haven't told you the name! LoL. (Did I mention how excited I am?!)

*drum roll*

  1. I like Christmas stories that aren't overly sappy. Wait. Is there such a thing? For my money, you still can't beat Dickens's A Christmas Carol, although The Grinch Who Stole Christmas comes in a close second!

  3. So excited! (Yeah, I am one of them :D). And Tom, at least one of mine in there is DEFINITELY not sappy. In fact, I think it just may be YOUR kind of story.

    WOOOWOO Peej!

    1. You're right, Jo. Your story "Through Her Eyes" is NOT sappy. It's a cool take on...wait. I'll let you tell later. ;-)

  4. My favorite story is How the Grinch Stole Christmas. You've got this great villain who turns out to have a heart of gold with a wicked sense of humor.

  6. Celebrating with you, Patty. I do like A Christmas Carol and the different movie
    versions, especially The Muppet Christmas Carol. :) And for the record, my story is sappy, but the main character is a detective, so read at your own risk, Tom!

  8. How cool Patty!

    My favorite kind of Christmas story are the ones that give me a different way of looking at what I thought I knew. Shift my perspective a bit and it adds to Christmas for me. :)
