It’s official… I’m going to publish a Christmas-themed story next week! I’ve been trying to write something since August, and I’ve discovered that it’s really difficult to write something for one holiday when you’re on the other side of calendar. But after November, I needed something to cheer me up – and for some reason, writing a flirty, funny, sexy little Christmas story about two guy who fall into love fit the bill exactly.
A Christmas Caroling is with the betas now, and I’m tweaking a few things here and there. I’ve also been scurrying to get all of the other details that go along with publishing a book set – such as writing the blurb, setting up the Goodreads entry, and ordering a cover. I was thinking I’d give premade covers a try this time – but it’s surprisingly hard to find a Christmassy cover that features two guys. WHO KNEW. I ended up commissioning a cover from Amourisa Designs, and I couldn’t be happier with it. Look at my men! Look at the pretty Christmas lights! Look at the gorgeous font for the title! I love it.
The last thing alpha Rudy Mitchell wants to do is spend the evening caroling with the local community center – especially since he’s been paired up with the omega dork wearing the ridiculous Christmas sweater. But when the omega is injured during their walk, Rudy’s protective instincts kick into gear – and he finds himself singing a whole different song.
Omega Harry Chen just wants a little Christmas cheer before he leaves on a six-month-long apprenticeship on the other side of the world. He doesn’t plan on falling on some black ice… or falling in love with his caroling partner. Now Harry’s half a world away… and wondering how he’s going to tell Rudy about the Christmas surprise neither of them anticipated.
When Harry’s apprenticeship is over – will Rudy greet Harry and their surprise with open arms? Or will next Christmas feature solo acts only?
A Christmas Caroling is an alpha/omega non-shifter mpreg romance. It features horrible Christmas sweaters, beautifully painted glass bottles, and an HEA ending.
it was nice to write something so quickly like this – the story’s much shorter than anything else, somewhere around 22,000 words. Light, sweet, sexy, and a guaranteed happy ending all around.
Of course, the tricky part is getting all the pieces together… especially since I’ve recently become enamored with Yuri on Ice, a Japanese rom-com anime about a male figure skater and his male coach falling in love. It’s adorable. It’s my first foray into anime, and I’m absolutely loving every minute of it. I highly, highly recommend watching if you haven’t already! Just be sure you don’t have any projects due, it’s kind of addictive. 🙂
I don’t have an exact release date just yet, but I suspect it’ll be toward the end of next week. It’s such a sweet little story – I’m sure you’re all going to love it, and Rudy and Harry, as much as I do.
