I’m so excited this week to work on my first book launch. My debut book, Angel Songs, went live on November 1. The book has 20 Christmas short stories and poems, as well as a few recipes inspired by three of the stories.
It’s been quite a journey putting this together and I discovered that working on so many short stories at once, each with their own cast of characters, was in many ways more difficult than working on a longer novel with a smaller set of characters. But still it was fun.
Angel Songs began last year on this blog when my niece and I challenged each other to post something on our blogs every day in the month of December based on the same list of topics — she’s a photographer so she posted photos while I wrote and posted something in writing — and we achieved that goal nearly every day.
Then the more I thought about it, I decided it would be fun to use this experience as the basis for a new book for this 2013 holiday season. I took the stories and poems I wrote, significantly edited and in some cases completely rewrote them, then added some new pieces and bound them into one volume — Angel Songs.
The end result is about 100 pages and the price is $2.99 for Kindle, $4.99 for paperback on Amazon. I hope you check it out. You can find more info here:
I know I’m a bit early, but in honor of the book, I hope your upcoming holiday season is wonderful!
