Release of the The Twelve Days of Christmas!



It's here!


That's right, Invisible Friends!


The Twelve Tales of Christmas is available through Lulu!

With the patience of my dear husband Ben and the invaluable editing services of Angela, it's here just in time for Christmas!

The Twelve Tales of Christmas is full of everything you love here at the Pond. It's got the romance of Twirl, the whimsy of Kitchen Magic and the charming children's tales of the Land of the Flowered Bed and Miss Pickles. Read it to your girlfriend, your kids, your Mom, even your cat!

This book is small enough to fit in your purse and has stories short enough to sit in one reading! Take in a tale between cookie batches or relax with a funny story between wrapping gifts. Sick of your in-laws? Read this book!

At 14.99 and more than 200 pages, this holds all the Christmas whimsy you need for the season!

I'm still working on getting a little button preview for the side of my blog, but until then, I'll keep a link on each post. You can also click on the Lulu button on the side to go to my storefront over there.


In the Twelve Tales of Christmas you'll find:

  • The Story of Iris- A hopeless romantic, Iris gives up on finding love this Christmas. But then a PR job leads to a enchanting night that restores her hope in love--and her Christmas spirit!
  • The Story of Rex the Dog- All Rex wants is a bone for Christmas. A big, meaty, juicy bone. As a dog in a vegetarian household, he knows that there's a bigger chance of snow in South Texas. But when he learns a secret about Santa, he starts drooling in anticipation...
  • The Story of Bill- A Christmas enthusiast delivery man finds one package he can't help opening. Little did he know it would change his life forever!
  • The Story of Noelle- Noelle's convinced her grandmother's fruitcake is haunting her. In fact, she's convinced she can't escape it. And she might be right.
And as seen before on the blog, The Twelve Tales of Christmas also contains Priscilla Piper and the The Story of Rosalita, which you'll catch the end to Monday.

Just in case you think this is all a terrible case of self-promotion, today is also the kickoff of Twelve Days of Christmas at the Pond! We'll have fabulous treats such as an Ode to Christmas Cookies, the Christmas Chihuahuas, fabulous whimsical tales, Bitty's letter to Santa, plenty of recipes and of course, the end of Kitchen Magic and another Twirl or two.

So stay tuned, Invisible Friends! It's Christmas at the Pond!
