Right after I announced the annual holiday exchange, I heard about several people who said they would participate. Yay! I know we all need that kind of good news at this stressful time, and so I thank you in advance for your submission. 😈 (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. 😀 )
Anyway, the very next day I received links to two pieces by Nicky. So go ahead and check them out in the Holiday Exchange page, or find them on her blog here: Secret Diaries of a Brat #1 and Snow and Angels. And be sure to let her know how much you like them.
Thanks for putting up this year’s section. I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with. I am seriously addicted to this stuff (Talking about reading, of course) Alyx, I can’t get enough of your books (Caroline, you too – I love Pip). Anyway, I am working on updating my site with plenty of fun stuff to read. Hope you enjoy.
Well, it’s good to find out that “dmm dmm” is actually Nicky! 🙄 Thanks for being the first to contribute…may it be the first of many! 🙂
Nicky, you don’t have a place to comment on your pieces, so I’m writing a comment on my own blog. 🙂 I enjoyed your “Secret Diaries of a Brat #1” — it encapsulates in a very stripped-down but beautiful way what most brats seem to yearn for.
As for “Snow and Angels,” it’s a very lovely look into a relationship which obviously has a magical component to it. I can see you have a whole series planned out for this couple and many related characters, and since I love fantasy/sci-fi, I’m looking forward to seeing more!
Thank you for participating in this year’s holiday exchange. 🙂
Just read these.
I loved the relationship between Jamie and Regina in Snow and Angels…
and the rhythm with which you express that aching need in Secret Diaries of a Brat #1.
I loved both your warm sweet squirmy story and your beautiful poem Nicky! I was delighted to find it looks like you have more stories about the same characters at your blog! Its like finding a treasure lol. I will love to read them.🙂 Thank you so much!
