It's Christmas time and almost everyone has begun preparing for the celebrations. Many of you will have members of their family come down and visit them. Others are planing with their friends and neighbours dinners and parties.

 

So, if you feel tired and think of doing something different, than worrying about Xmas, why not read a Christmas Story? Maybe this one might interest you. It's a short story I wrote as a challenge between some authors of a writer's group who specilize in the true crime fiction and non-fiction genres. I'm more into fiction and must say, horror or blood-full stories are not part of my preferred genres. It's a more traditional 'Miracle on 34th Street' kind of story. The title is 'Til it Happens in Your Heart'.

 

It's free and you can download it by clicking on this link. https://drive.google...ew?usp=drivesdk

 

Merry Christmas.

I took a look and started reading, but, alas, when I went to take a look it was longer than I was expecting ... it still appears to be a short and easy read, but the 19 pages or so was longer than I could spend in the middle of my work day (darn people that actually expect me to work!!).  I will read it this weekend, though!

Took a look yesterday morning before work, but 19 pages was too much to add on top of the stuff I read at work--will give it another go later this week--Thanks for the gift!

If anyone prefers reading a Kindle or an Epub (Mac) version of my Christmas story, I've added the two formats to the pdf format already available on my author blog at this location: https://jardinerodem...ry-of-mine.html

I read it this weekend. It was fun, thank you!

Detail: I noticed a lot of English errors that detracted from the flow; it could use more proofreading.
