Good News

So, one might ask, what's been happening in T's Garden lately?

Well, there's been plenty of rain.  Rainy soccer games, at the end of a remarkably dry season.  Scoot's birthday, with grandparents visiting.  The death of a computer, and the slow training of a new one.  Plumbing repairs.  Thanksgiving with colds and a fever.

You know, some good, some bad, some busy.

But there's another adventure I need to tell you about.  I've been doing some creative writing, and two of my stories have just been published in Christmas anthologies.  Let me tell you about them!

Sing We Now of Christmas

Sing We Now of Christmas contains twenty-five stories inspired by Christmas Carols.  I wrote a story based on Christina Rosetti's poem, "In the Bleak Midwinter," which we sang in our church choir last Christmas.  The stories have been donated by authors from across the country, teaming together for a good cause.  All proceeds from sales of the anthology will be donated to the National Down Syndrome Society.

The Sing We Now of Christmas website offers a video and lyrics for each inspiring song, information about each author, and more.

This Advent Anthology is available in paperback from CreateSpace and Amazon, and as a Kindle ebook.

Get in the Christmas Spirit with Checkin' It Twice & Other Heartwarming Holiday Tales, Volume 2 of award-winning stories from LDS Publisher's 2010 and 2011 Christmas Story Contests.  My contribution, "Foreign Exchange," was loosely based on my memory of a rainy Christmas Eve in Maryland.

See the Checkin' It Twice website for author interviews, contests, and more information.

Available in paperback from CreateSpace and Amazon.  Also available in Kindle and other ebook formats.

And if you buy a paperback copy from Amazon before December 15, you will receive several cool bonus goodies!  See the details here.
