‘Tis More Blessed — Christmas Celebration Giveaways

Here’s a great way to celebrate the Christmas season! More than 40 authors have banded together to celebrate Christmas by giving away one or more Christmas stories, some of which are available every Friday. All you have to do is enter your email address and every Friday, you will receive directions on how to be included.

Yours truly will be participating this Friday (December 6) by giving away a Kindle ebook containing the first two stories from my new collection of Christmas stories, Angel Songs. If you’d like to participate in the event — and receive an ebook from me — simply link to the registration page here: ‘Tis More Blessed – and receive links from all 40+ authors.

I Love a Good Interview!

KarensBlogToday I’m excited! Karen Einsel has posted an interview with me over on her blog, Karen’s Different Corners. I hope you will indulge me if I post a link here.

Karen was so charming to speak with. She is running a series of interviews with short story authors. Please go over and check out her blog and her interviews with other authors as well.

Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Links of the Week

I can’t believe it’s Friday already — and I have few links I wanted to share with you this week and haven’t gotten to  yet. Here you go…

AfterLeanWinter• You can download a copy of a David Farland short over on Amazon for free. Limited time offer, folks, so hurry. Get it here.

• Another Goodreads giveaway of Brandon Sanderson‘s The Way of Kings. Love this book!

• I found a unique, interactive internet show (for lack of a better word) called Aurelia. This steampunk fantasy drama is created by…you. Build your own character and jump in. It’s built on the serial Rise of the Tiger and follows the citizens of a self-sustaining, steam-powered city as they battle a deadly energy crisis. Check it out here. Pretty cool.

• Announcing the 2013 World Fantasy nominees! This is always a great place to find new authors — or make sure you haven’t missed any of your favorites. There is some good stuff here.

That’s it for today. I hope y’all have a great weekend!
