Today I have an interview with multi-genre author, Pauline Baird Jones, and highlight her holiday release with author Genie Davis.
Christmas is coming and so is All I Got For Christmas. Inside you’ll get the evocative and haunting, ”Riding for Christmas,” and the offbeat and heartwarming, "Up on the Housetop.”
Riding For Christmas:
A mesmerizing tale of interstellar time travel and romance!
Jane MacKenzie, visiting her grandfather’s abandoned ranch, discovers something in the snow. When she opens the ribbon-wrapped box, it mysteriously returns Sam Harrington, who “disappeared” in an 1885 blizzard.
There’s nothing alien in this enduring tale of holiday homecomings and the hope of love that lasts a lifetime.
Up on the House Top:
Will her Christmas be ho, ho, ho? Or oh no, no, no?
Gini knew Christmas in Wyoming would be challenging as she headed over the frozen crick and through the woods to the family cabin. The lights are going out in her mom’s attic, the guy who broke her heart is on the porch…and there are aliens on the roof.
According to her mom, it’s going to be the best Christmas ever.
Do something for you (or someone you love) and make "All I Got for Christmas" what you GET for Christmas!
Learn more about Pauline, her stories and her life.
All I Got For Christmas most definitely crosses genres, as it is two holiday stories AND science fiction romance (which is kind of mixing up genres, too). The aliens in both stories are not the love interest, however. We’ll call them the complications our heroes and heroines face on the path to true love. One of the fun things for both us was writing separate stories, but…they are connected by location (Wyoming), holiday theme (Christmas), and they each get a gift from an alien that changes their lives.
What I love the most about being an indie author is the control I have over my books. I also love that I have market research and access to important information that helps me manage my business.
What I find the hardest, is that it is all up to me. It’s a lot of work, like a garden that never goes fallow. You’d think that once you push “publish” that you can just leave it and move on to the next book, but nope. Those little “plants” need water and fertilizer and attention. Lots of attention.
