New Release (Sorta)--KATHI MACIAS' 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS (FREE BOOK)


Twelve individual stories of Christmas to warm your insides. Authors are Kathi Macias (of course)(she's also the compiler of this collection), Kathy Bruins, Jessica Ferguson, Christine Lindsay, Marcia Lee Laycock, Marcy Weydemuller, Ruth L. Snyder, Sheila Seiler Lagrand, Peggy Blann Phifer, Anne Baxter Campbell (me!), Mishael Austin Witty, and Jeanette Handscome. You can check out the blogs/websites of each of the authors by clicking on their names.

Individual Christmas stories that cover a 12-day period—to be celebrated all year long! My particular story is the tenth one, Her Best Worst Christmas: What would you do if you found a newborn baby in a trash can? Call 911 on your cell?  What if your cell was home sitting beside your bed? Wendy Blessing spent her last salary check on herself, and she stumbles across the street to what appears to be the only place with a phone she can use. The suspicious store owner reluctantly lets her call the EMTs, one of whom is more than a bit good-looking from Wendy's point of view. Gabriel and some other unexpected angels help her as she battles the paperazzi and falls in love with the baby.

This unique Christmas collection, compiled by best-selling author Kathi Macias, includes  historical, contemporary, romantic, mysterious, and even Amish tales that will warm your heart, whether sipping hot cocoa in front of the fireplace in winter or nursing a frosty glass of iced tea under a shade tree in the summer. Beginning with a scene set 12 days before Christmas, these stories move readers, one day at a time, toward that spiritual hush of Christmas Eve, where anything is possible. Authors from various geographical locations and walks of life have spun tales that will enchant readers, even as they are drawn closer to the greatest Gift ever given. And each story, though vastly different from the others, makes the same offer: Will you make room in your heart for the Christ-child as He shows up in your life and beckons you to join Him?
 
The collection is available from Amazon in either paperback or ebook format. Or from any of the authors. This blog offers a free copy to one commenter below, signed by me, deadline May 27. (LEAVE YOUR EMAIL, PLEASE, SO I HAVE A WAY TO CONTACT YOU!)
