Then Comes Winter- a new collection of short stories, a Book Tour, and a Competition!


Here is news of a brand new book that looks perfect for a stocking filler! Christina Boyd is here to tell us all about the book tour and a chance to enter a fabulous competition to win a very special copy.
In the US, the time between Thanksgiving and New Year's is travel time as people go back to their hometowns to celebrate holidays with their families. It is only appropriate that Then Comes Winter, a collection of holiday themed short stories, is embarking on a trip to visit each of its hometowns, those of the talented authors who contributed to its making. Along the way through three countries, the traveling copy of Then Comes Winter will be collecting autographs, visiting special places in each region, and collecting souvenirs.

The book's final stop is yet undetermined. Its wanderlust will end once a winner is chosen through this rafflecopter drawing which will determine which lucky winner whose bookshelf will house the only paperback of the anthology signed by all the authors and the editor. Be a part of this unique journey and enter to be that final destination.
In the meantime, join us as we track the book's journey. http://merytonpress.com/a-then-comes-winter-road-trip/

“Then comes Winter, with bluster and snow, that brings to our cheeks the ruddy glow…” Gertrude Tooley Buckingham (The Four Seasons)
If you long for a toasty snuggle on a cold winter’s night, this collection of original short stories inspired by the magic of the holiday season—and more than a nod to Jane Austen—was fancied as a sublime wintertime treat. On the heels of the summer anthology, "Sun-kissed: Effusions of Summer," and in concert with some of Meryton Press’s most popular authors, this romantic anthology introduces several promising writers. With a robust mix of contemporary and Regency musings, "Then Comes Winter," rekindles the romantic fires with equal wit, wonder, and admiration. Edited by Christina Boyd. Contributing authors: Natalie Richards, Erin Lopez, Sophia Rose, Denise Stout, Beau North, Amber Carter, Suzan Lauder, Linda Gonschior, Lory Lilian, Melanie Stanford, Anngela Schroeder, and Maureen Lee.

Thank you for the support of this short story anthology, the twelve authors, and the fun Flat Stanley-like world road trip & giveaway! Hoping your Christmas season is merry and bright!

It's a pleasure, Christina! I love anthologies, and was very lucky to be part of Laurel Ann Nattress's project, Jane Austen Made Me Do It. Wishing you and all the authors great success and have a lovely Christmas too!

Jenetta, yes-I think short stories are perfect at Christmas! Thank you for coming to visit and leaving a lovely comment.

While I prefer long and longer novels in order to spend a great deal of reading time with the characters, short stories are delightful reads for those quick, but complete, reads in many situations where we would otherwise have to stop in the middle of the story. And that's why I like to have them in my collection. Thank you.

Jane Odiwe said...

Betty, I agree-there's nothing like a lovely, long novel, but a short story makes a nice change and can be very satisfying, I quite agree! Thank you for visiting me.

Thanks so much for hosting Then Comes Winter, Jane! It is exciting to see TCW travel from place to place.

Yes, Jane, I reviewed it for Austenprose. "Jane Austen Made Me Do It" was the first anthology I had ever read. And your "Persuasion" short story "Waiting" was the first thing I'd ever read of yours. Well done. http://austenprose.com/2011/10/16/jane-austen-made-me-do-it-edited-by-laurel-ann-nattress-–-a-review/
