Interview @The Blog Starts Here

November wanes… and that means it’s time to kick the Christmas season into full gear!  Christmas Lites, the anthology for a good cause, is smoking in sales and bringing desperately needed funds to NCADV to help stop domestic violence.

Free copies are also being contributed to support our troops via Operation eBook Drop.  I was so happy to be asked to contribute to this worthy book and wrote a special story just for this project.

My story, Only That Day Dawns, is loosely based on some of my real life experiences mashed up into one story.  All of that really happened to me at some point.  Even the angel was real (I have a reliable witness!)

To read it (and a bunch of great stories by other authors), you’ll have to get a copy of Christmas Lites for yourself:

Paperback on CreateSpace
Paperback on Amazon
eBooks on Smashwords

There’s enough reading in there to keep you cozied up until Christmas and remember, all the money goes to NCADV to help stop domestic violence.

I was thrilled to be interviewed by Jenn over at The Blog Starts Here about my story in Christmas Lites.  To find out the real scoop on the whole thing, you’ll have to go read it at her place.  She asked all the right questions ;D  Thank you Jenn for putting up such a great interview.  I can’t wait to get my paperback copy of Christmas Lites in the mail, and tonight I’m snuggling up to read it in my kindle.  Yay for digital instant gratification!

I’ll let you know what I think when I finish… What are you reading tonight?
