Following up on Linda's post from the other day, I also believe reading is one way to create some winter magic of your very own. But what if your schedule is jam packed? Or packed with jam?
Winter magic -- snow, cold weather, ice crystals, and lots of celebrating! Let's keep this short but sweet, friends. During the winter holiday season, you may not have as many blocks of time to read. You're busy. Aren't we all? But a little light reading -- losing yourself and your stress in a quick story -- might make all the difference between a good day and a bad one.
May I suggest the following FREE FREE FREE micro story anthology? All the stories are designed to be read quickly, between work, errands, and so on. Tiny Treats -- A Holiday Collection
My story is about a heroine with nobody to kiss at New Year's due to some magicus interruptus! Here's how it starts...
At precisely 12:00 am on New Year's Day, when he came at her for a celebratory kiss, Ana's date turned into a pumpkin.
"Crap!" Ana snatched up the large gourd before any of her fellow revelers smashed it. The residual effects of the spell should prevent bystanders from noticing the transmogrification, but the spell to change Jimmy back into the human he’d been ten seconds ago wouldn’t work on pumpkin pulp.
She was going to kill that damn cat. This time, she was really going to do it.
Leading with the pumpkin, she pushed free of the throng. Confetti and balloons drifted from the ceiling as the crowd broke into a drunken rendition of Auld Lang Syne. Her stilettos pinched her toes with every stomp.
Not that the date had been going fabulously—it was hard for a sorceress to relax with a normal, even one as cute as Jimmy—but she’d been dateless for too long. The last man who’d truly interested her... Well, the less said about him the better.
Except she’d be saying a lot of things to him here in about twenty minutes. Threatening things.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone, and have a grand new year with much chocolate and stuff.
Smart. Snarky. Seductive. And that's just the books.
