A group of crafty authors that I have had the pleasure of meeting in the virtual world have decided to band together to showcase their talents in an anthology of holiday themed short stories. It’s sure to be a treat for readers.
Seven stories, seven situations threatening the festivities. Will the holidays be a disaster? Will families be left out in the cold? Will there be tears before bedtime, or will there be happy endings all round? The MG BookElves group brings you its first anthology of tales to enjoy during the holiday season:
- Reliable Clooney Dockins delivered his town’s mail on time for thirty-two years, until that strange and impossible Christmas Eve when he woke up late.
» M.G. King – Fizz & Peppers at the Bottom of the World, Librarian on the Roof
- Max the Tonkinese cat finds Santa Claus on the roof and is whisked away to retrieve a very special message from another time and place.
» Wendy Leighton-Porter – The Shadows from the Past series
- Shirley Link is an amateur sleuth who lives in a town that could use all the sleuths it can get! What is it about Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts that makes it such a hotspot for dastardly deeds? Even on Christmas Day?

- Far away on the west coast of a western Scottish island, Dylan and Dougall face yuletide in Castle Haunn with no heat, light or food. Can Dylan get the message through to the mainland for help, or is there something nasty waiting for him in the hills?
