Christmas Lites Cover and Trailer Reveal!

Wednesday, November 9, 2011
Hey Peeps!

It's an exciting day!! Who doesn't love a cover reveal? Well I got that. But I got something to go with the cover too.... a Book Trailer! Yay! Settle in your seat and get ready to delight your eyes and ears. :)

I have mentioned a few times that I am one of 3 moderators in a group in GoodReads called Creative Reviews... (our button is over there --------------> on the right side somewhere!). Well our group is filled (and I do mean filled - we have over 900 members) to the brim with writers, reviewers, editors, proofreaders and crazy people. (I be one of the crazy ones). We decided to pull all our abilities to do soemthing for others. Born: Christmas Lites. Its a Short Story Anthology with the overall theme of Christmas. It will be available in Ebook and Print this November.

26 authors submitted a short story to be included in the anthology and ALL the proceeds will be donated to the NCADV - National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Its a wonderful charity that we are honored to support. We are also donating FREE Ecopies to the deployed troops overseas via Operation Ebook Drop.

We planned a release date for November 25th (yes, Black Friday for our US residents). It will be for sure out there in Ebook via Smashwords, Amazon and BN. Print? I planned on it. But from I hear Createspace takes a while so i will let you know about that soon....

Until then, let us feast our eyes on the beautimus cover:

Soooo pretty.
Cover Design by Dafeenah Jameel.
She does great work and her prices can't be beat.

Here's the Blurb to give you the flavor flavor of the book:
I'm making it red to get into the holiday Spirit!!! Deck the Blogs with a bunch of red, fa la la la la la. What you don't like my singing?

   Once upon a time, a rough and tumble seven year old caught Santa sliding down the chimney…
Then a ninja elf came and broke Santa out, no net is strong enough to keep out this ninja elf! Off past the faithful family pet they ran and jumped in the sleigh. They raced to another house but refused to stop when ghosts were there to greet them. Santa doesn’t tangle with ghosts. He doesn’t tangle with vampires, either.
At the next stop, he met a runaway gingerbread man who yelled, “You can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man!” Santa didn’t bother to catch him; he had things to do.
On his way to his next delivery, he passed a werewolf jumping out of a plane and dodged a zombie hungry for his brain.
He finally touched down in a nice, normal town full of tidings and great joy…
Or did he?
Dive into a world of variety—a world of spirit with this Creative Reviews anthology. What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with some short stories that entertain and encompass the true meaning of Christmas? All proceeds of this book will be donated to the NCADV (national coalition against domestic violence). Debut authors and published authors have come together in this one-of-a-kind compilation – please help support a great cause and plunge deep into our imaginations.

And if that wasn't enough fun, how about the trailer, for your viewing pleasure....

So what do we all think? Does this look like a fun, entertaining good read? Does it look like it would be something that you could enjoy  AND fell good about buying?

Are you in the Holiday Spirit yet? You should be!

As I said, A LOT of people went into helping to create such a great book. I will do a blog post later that gives thanks to them all. Until then, Thanks Peeps! You know who you are. :)

So keep your eyes peeled (hold them open) and be on the look out for this fab anthology. More to come about its release!

Have a great day! HO HO HO HO Merry Christmas! What? Oh its not Thanksgiving yet? Whatever. :)
