Oscar has never liked the holidays and all the surrounding rigmarole, but that doesn’t stop his best friend from dragging him along for her Black Friday shopping spree. The only perk of the day is that he meets Nathan while he’s there.

With sparkling blue eyes, curly blond hair, and a smile that won’t stop, Nathan is a Christmas elf in the flesh. He even spends his days in a workshop! But Nathan is more than his bright smile, and he may be just the right person for Oscar. Assuming, of course, Oscar doesn’t drive him and his holiday spirit away first.

This story started as a fun little prompt and grew into an exploration of what the holidays mean and how family can affect you even into adulthood. I’ve been lucky and I’ve had great family to celebrate the holidays with, but some of my friends haven’t been so blessed. Although their experiences weren’t Oscar’s, this story is dedicated to them, and everyone else who can’t enjoy the holidays with family as they’re shown on TV and in movies.

Thankfully Oscar finds Nathan, who is everything Oscar isn’t. The spark between them is instant and burns hot, but when Christmas comes around, Oscar’s attitude threatens to douse the flame between them. Can Nathan save the holidays and rekindle the heat between them? Guess you’ll have to read to find out 😉

Edits and Pictures

This weekend I’m expecting to be busy. I have fanciful visions of writing, plus visiting friends and family, catching up on all the things I’ve slacked on (mostly reading comics I like and watching anime I like…my life is hard), and going through edits. I’m always nervous when I get edits from a new publishers. I have no idea what to expect.

I’m pretty much always overreact though. Like HOW DARE YOU INSULT MY PRECIOUS BABY BY SUGGESTING IT COULD BE BETTER. And then a second later YES YOU MADE IT BETTER BUT STILL. I do a lot of shouting at my screen and accepting changes. It’s probably a good thing I live alone.

Since I plan on spending a fair amount of time with edits this weekend, I’m going to spam you with images.

MY WEEK IN PICTURES
(it’s been an all-caps sort of week)

 Flowers are (oddly enough) blooming at the barn right now. First screenshot is from The Morose Mononokean and second his from Cheer Boys. They give me all the good feelings.

Announcement!

So this week I got some exciting news!

*drum roll*

I just signed a contract for a novella coming out with Nine Star Press! It’s the story of Oscar, who very much does not like the holidays, and Nathan, who very much could be one of Santa’s elves. They meet in the crazy that is Black Friday, and immediately hit it off. Of course, falling in love around the holidays is never easy, but they might just be able to do it!

With acceptance comes cover forms to fill out, edits to return, and blurbs to write. It’s all very exciting.

Short post today, as I have baking to do, triplets to hang out with, more baking to do, then friends to visit.
