The holiday season has arrived. At my house, the holiday TV watching started with one of our favorites — Love Actually. It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story are scheduled for their regular Christmas Eve slot, but in the meantime there will be Charlie Brown, Rudolph, Prep and Landing (both episodes), and a selection of random Christmas specials.
This year, we’ve also added The Man Who Invented Christmas to the list. Funny, charming and particularly satisfying to the indie author, this take on A Christmas Carol makes me want to cuddle up in front of the fire and drink hot chocolate — even though it’s currently 80 degrees in Los Angeles.
And of course, I can’t forget the new Doctor Who Christmas special. We will be saying goodbye to Peter Capaldi, but having survived the departure of David Tennant and Matt Smith, I am just focusing on what the future of Doctor Who has to bring.
The fun of putting the season’s pressure on characters we love didn’t escape team Werewolf Whisperer as Bonita and I made the decision to write a little holiday tale starring Lucy and Xochi. ’Cause nothing says Christmas like Werebeasts. At just slightly over 10,000 words (45 pages) it is just a wee nibble, a fast read or a quick listen. And for the holidays, we want to share the story with all of you, both in e-book and audiobook form.
The BEAST NAVIDAD audiobook is performed by Nicol Zanzarella, Audie-winning narrator and genuine badass — (available through Dec 31, 2017)
Merry Christmas and have a Werebeast-free New Year!
