This one was unexpected in more than one way, but you’ll see what I mean if you read my comment on her blog. 🙂 Thanks to Ellie for participating and gifting us with this story, and a reminder to everyone of how much these authors enjoy your appreciation of their work. It’s the kind of gift that benefits both the giver and receiver. 🙂
As always, find a link on the Xmas Exchange page, or click to go directly to her site: Santa’s Cookies.
When your New Year starts with a new story from Claire Britain! Yes, she has put another gift under the tree, and I know all her fans are cheering. 🙂 You can find it on the Links page, or click here to go directly to the story on the Wayward Angels site: Holiday Intervention – Part 2. (She sent me the wrong link — are you listening, Claire’s top? 😀 — but luckily I was able to figure it out!)
Be sure to let her know how happy we are to see the continuation of this story, as well as any new work from her!
At least not here in the Global Village, where the gift exchange is still going on! The latest surprise under the tree is by an author I’d not read before, though I suspect many of you will be familiar with her and her Gauntlet series. 🙂
So thank you to Sam for her contribution, which you can find on the Links page, or go directly to her blog here: A Holiday Special of the Gauntlet. And as always send her lots of appreciation, so she’ll bless us with another story next year. 😀
Mele Kalikimaka, Spank-fans! I received a gift today which is from someone new, and she has illustrations in with her story. She says she’s enjoyed reading all of our stories, and I’m thrilled she’s decided to submit on this year. Find it on the Links page, or click here to go directly to her blog: Wicked Girl by Xen. Be sure to leave a comment and let her know how much you appreciate her gift! 🙂
Although I know it’s Christmas already for most of you, it’s still Christmas Eve here, and there are a bunch more presents under the tree. Peach, Ginger Wolf, and I all added our stories, and you can find them on the Links page. I will add individual links to them tomorrow, but it’s been a long day, and I’m about to crash. Be sure to read the stories and let the authors know how much you enjoyed their efforts. Mele Kalikimaka, everyone!
12/25/19: Sorry, in my tiredness I forgot to update the Links page…what a lolo (Hawaiian for stupid)! It’s updated now and all the stories are available. Peach’s: Dancing on Ice, Ginger Wolf’s: The first Lunar Yule/Christmas, and mine: A Matter of Seconds.
are often the ones that are completely unexpected. And that’s what happened this afternoon, when I found this gift in my inbox. The author said she (forgive the assumption if you are a he or they, and please correct me if I’m wrong) has enjoyed the Christmas stories as a lurker for years, and this year has one to contribute. I’m sure you’ll agree with my hope that this isn’t the last story we have from her, as it’s a wonderful piece!
I’m also happy to discover a blog I hadn’t been aware of before, and am looking forward to checking out more offerings by J. For now, you can find J’s story on the Links page, or click on this link which will take you to J’s blog: An Untitled Christmas Story. Be sure to the author know how much you appreciated her story! 🙂
Well, actually it’s not quite that time of year yet. Halloween hasn’t even come, but the Global Village Holiday Exchange is just around the corner and I’ve already hung onto Wookie’s story since the beginning of this month, and she has patiently not complained or asked when the heck I was going to post it. Not even a little whine. She must be hoping for a good present from Santa, methinks! 😉
Anyway, it’s a good reminder for those of us who haven’t composed our contribution yet to get started. Remember, it doesn’t have to be a story. A poem, a song, some art work, a crossword puzzle, whatever your heart desires! The main idea is that your gift will enrich the rest of the Village, who will in turn enrich you by our appreciation. 🙂
So without further ado, let’s enjoy Wookie’s gift! As always, you can find it on the Links and Xmas Exchange page, or just click here: All I want for Christmas….
