Are you ready?

I wish I could say yes, I am, but sadly, this year, I am not even close to ready.  How can it possibly be 5 days until Christmas when just last week it was the first day of spring??  I don't get it.  But whether I'm ready or not, it's a'coming.  I did do myself a favor this year, though.  In the midst of my panic over all the things I had left to do, I waved the white flag and said "I surrender.  I am not sending Christmas cards this year."  I always send them, complete with a newsy letter and pictures.  But it's just not happening this year and I all I can say is, what a relief.  With that one checked off my list, all I need to do is wrap some gifts and find some spirit. 

Speaking of spirit, if you have some down time, why not give my fun little Christmas story a try?  It's all about finding that Christmas spirit...and appreciating the ones you love....  For less than a dollar, what do you have to lose?  Put that to do list away and relax with story.

KISSING KRIS KRINGLE, by Erin Quinn (99 cent ebook)

Kris Kringle is just an average guy living in the tiny town of North Pole, Maine where Christmas isn't just a holiday--it's a way of life. But not for Kris. He might be named after the big guy in red, but Kris is more Scrooge than Santa.

Until he wakes up from a night of partying with his friends to find himself in possession of a Santa suit, a toy bag and a puppy. Kris soon discovers that he's been relegated to Santa's naughty list and there's only one way to get his name removed....put on the suit and spread some cheer.

Lucky for Kris every cloud has a silver snowflake and his quest to get off that list lands him in the arms of the woman he's been lusting after for years.

It takes a little magic, but Kris is about to get everything he didn't know he wanted for Christmas.

Review from the Book Reading Gals

"What more can you ask for than a charming little town that embraces the Christmas season, even during the hard times, people who gather together to bring joy into each others lives, and miracles that happen when least expected. Let alone characters that you quickly fall in love with and want to hear more about hint-hint Erin.  If you are one who loves these fabulous holiday romances than you will not want to miss this one!  Grade A"

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Hi, Erin,
Congrats on KISSING KRIS KRINGLE! Way to go! I hope writing this story was an enjoyable experience for you. I've been doing some research and copyedits and I always get to a point where I MISS the actual writing process.

As for Christmas, we made huge changes this year in our family, including the addition of a wonderful granddaughter, but basically we've decided to limit presents to the new baby and I'm still debating decorating since we'll be going into town this year. It's both freeing and sad because Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. ON THE OTHER HAND, I hear you about RELIEF!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday and of course the best New Year ever!

Kim, I think that organized gene skipped me. I am never ready, but this year is worse than most.

Caris--congrats on the grandbaby! And thanks for the congrats on Kris. Funny you should ask if writing that story was fun because it was an absolute blast. We'll have to talk. :)
