Happy December, everybody, and a very Merry Christmas to you!
As Christmas is two weeks today, (I know, right? Didn’t that come fast!) I have a holiday-themed teaser for you. This time next year I intend to release a book of short stories from different points of view within the Nature’s Destiny world that all focus on one theme; holidays. Today’s teaser is from Sky’s (Nature’s Destiny character) POV, and I will release her FULL CHRISTMAS STORY via my newsletter on Christmas day. So, if you want IN on a FREE read, be sure to sign up here.

The cobbled-stone town was a frantic mess of rushing shoppers dashing into every store for last-minute gifts. Tinsel covered windows and doors, and colourful lights hung like a welcoming invitation, embracing the festive cheer.
I wrapped my arms around my chest, pulling my coat tighter to keep in the warmth. A frosty breeze twirled past my face; my nose was frozen to the touch.
Christmas was only a few days away, and every year it was the same depressing, lonely holiday of my life. I was always the grumpiest person around all this holly jolly spirit; the Grinch had nothing on me.
God knows why I thought a trip into town would help cheer me up.
Okay, so I know that doesn’t sound particularly happy and festive, and it’s not my intention to bum you out on Chrimbo day, so I do promise it gets better. Honestly. Also, while I remember, the Nature’s Destiny paperback giveaway finishes at the end of this month on goodreads, so hop on over here quickly and make sure you’ve entered to win.
Now, be sure to check out this great list of authors, and see what brilliant teasers they have to offer this month. Seriously, these peoples are amazing writers.
