Heartwarming Holiday Wishes by Carol Ross and Amy Vastine

We know everyone is gearing up for fall - Halloween, Thanksgiving, and everything pumpkin spice, but Carol and I are all caught up in the Christmas spirit. Why, you might ask? Well, we are celebrating the release of our Christmas anthology Heartwarming Holiday Wishes. We're thrilled to be part of these ten Christmas novellas written by some of our favorite, bestselling Heartwarming authors! 

All of the Holiday Wishes stories are set in Christmas Town, Maine. This is our third trip to Christmas Town, where it's Christmas all year round. We would love for  you to come visit our new website dedicated to our holiday-inspired town. Besides learning about all of the stories, we have fun coloring pages and character descriptions. We hope you'll stop by www.heartwarmingchristmastown.com and look around!
Carol's story is called Gingerbread Girl. It’s about two childhood friends turned frenemies, turned enemies, turned friends again, until finally… Let’s just say that they finally figure out how fine that line is between love and hate. Here's the back of the book blurb:

Kinley Reed and Ian Mackey’s teenage rivalry-friendship was both frustrating and bittersweet. After he crushed her heart, Kinley was glad to see Ian go. But now he’s back. Both successful architects, they soon find themselves in competition once again. Ian also needs Kinley’s help to save his troubled sister. Can Kinley set the past aside? Will Ian finally win the love of his gingerbread girl?

Amy's story is called A Case For Christmas Magic and it's about a internet vlogger, who hates Christmas. He's come to Christmas town to bring it down. Only, he meets a local tour guide who's determined to prove to him Christmas magic is real. Here's the back of the book blurb:

Boyd Austin hates Christmas but comes to Christmas Town to bust it’s myths and folklore for his internet vlog. Clara Burke loves Christmas Town and will do just about anything to increase tourism so she can get a promotion at work. Can she convince him Christmas magic really does exist before he tries to take down her town and cost her a job?


These are only two of the amazing stories in the set. Did we mention it's only 99 cents right now? It is! Ten stories by ten Heartwarming authors for less than a dollar. We hope you'll check it out!

  6. Love those covers and such fun stories. And whether we want it or not, Christmas is looming. A reporter on TV reminded us there are only 11 Fridays until Christmas. That had me going, "yikes!"
