Merry Christmas! This is my absolute favorite time of year. It’s a special time because of my faith, and I also love that it’s a season to celebrate with family and friends. I’m excited to be part of the Christmas Scavenger Hunt Round-Robin. At each author’s blog post, you’ll find a question that can be answered by looking at their book’s free Amazon preview. You’ll need to provide the answers at this Google Form. Note: You must answer the questions for every author in the round-robin to be considered to win a $300, $150, or $75 Amazon gift card. There is a link at the end of my post that will take you to the next blog, which will provide a link to the next blog, etc., to the very end.
I hope you have fun discovering some new authors and inspirational stories on the scavenger hunt. My flash fiction collection is called Beautiful, Complicated Family. It celebrates relationships between family members and friends—the ups, the downs, and everything in between. So I think it’s a great choice for Christmas reading. The stories in the collection capture struggles that are common in today’s families—secrets, mother-daughter conflicts, coping with aging family members, and a more subtle question of what makes a family. Unfortunately, we know that those issues don’t go away just because it’s Christmastime. In fact, they’re usually more active during this season. Most of us are dealing with heavy things in real life, so that’s why my author’s tagline is Uplifting stories with a little bit of hope, faith, and love. Like most families, the relationships in my collection consist of intricate elements. Sometimes things get messy, but it’s always beautiful.
I know it’s a busy time of the year, and it can be challenging to carve out time for reading. The good news is Beautiful, Complicated Family is perfect for when you only have a little spare time. The collection comes in two volumes. Each volume has five flash fiction stories (very short stories of 1000 words or less each), and each volume has a story with a Christmas theme. You can read each story in about 5 minutes. Volume 1 is FREE via most ebook vendors in the US, and you can Volume 2 for FREE by subscribing to my website (you can instead buy it from ebook vendors, if you prefer).
So, are you ready for my scavenger hunt question? What is the title of the Christmas-themed story in Beautiful, Complicated Family: Volume 2? Use this link to see my book’s preview on Amazon and find the answer. When you have the answer, fill out the Google form and head to the next blog!
But before you go to the next scavenger hunt stop, use this link to download my two free books. Consider it my gift to you! 🙂 And since it’s Christmas, I’ve included a bonus giveaway below for a $50 Amazon gift card (or $50 in books from Book Depository if the winner lives outside the U.S.). My bonus giveaway will end on December 16th at 11:59 PM EST.
