Blue Christmas, the fan fiction story that became an Internet sensation ten years ago with over 80,000 downloads and 1000 emails to the author, has now been adapted into a heartwarming novel. Blue Christmas is so much more than a seasonal story. The novel is filled with romance, drama and humor, making it a great read year around. - OBT Bookz

More About the Author

Born in Texas and raised in Oklahoma, Diane Hale Moody is a graduate of Oklahoma State University. She lives with her husband Ken (author McMillian Moody) in the rolling hills just outside of Nashville. They are the proud parents of two grown and extraordinary children, Hannah and Ben.

Just after moving to Tennessee in 1999, Diane felt the tug of a long-neglected passion to write again. Since then, she's written a column for her local newspaper, feature articles for various magazines and curriculum, and several novels with a dozen more stories eagerly vying for her attention.

When she's not reading or writing, Diane enjoys an eclectic taste in music and movies, great coffee, the company of good friends, and the adoration of a peculiar little pooch named Darby.

Blue Christmas, the latest from author Diane Moody, reminds us that an innocent encounter, in a most average kind of place, has the potential to change lives forever. The author takes us on a well-crafted journey into the experiences, faith, and personalities of each of the characters. It is a journey I greatly enjoyed taking.

As a middle-aged (alright, perhaps slightly older than middle-aged) man, this genre is not typically something I would dive right into - however, knowing the previous works of this author, I thought it best to put my personal preferences aside and give it a read.

I downloaded the book onto my iPad after getting into bed for the night, and I began to read - that was a big mistake. The next time I looked at the clock it was 2 am and I hadn't put it down. The book had captured me in a most unusual way and I looked forward to picking up where I'd left off the night before.

With her short story, Blue Christmas, author Diane Moody pulls back the curtain to reveal a novel with crisp character development, great plots and sub-plots, intrigue, faith, and playfulness.

As someone who reads a great deal, I am always intrigued by the finite number of words available to us, and the infinite number of ways those words can be placed alongside one another and woven into a story that will capture our heart, mind, and emotions. As the scope of work from this author continues to grow, it is becoming more evident with each subsequent novel and short story, that Diane Moody possesses the ability to place those words in a manner that brings great joy and satisfaction to her readers.

Blue Christmas is a book I would highly recommend giving to friends and family, of all ages, during the upcoming holiday season. It is a great read!

In Blue Christmas, Diane Moody's latest release, old man is giving Hannah grief on Christmas Eve. (Think Scrooge) A moment later, the woman behind him in line rescues Hannah and changes her life forever.

Blue Christmas keeps up this toe-tapping pace clear to the end.

Hannah is invited into the world of rock and roll when she is introduced to her favorite band - a place many girls dream about, but few see. The author offers readers a fresh look at what it might be like between members of a musical team who truly care about each and are influenced by real faith.

Moody reveals the faith of her characters gently - no preaching here although I'm pretty sure Marissa (one of the characters I'd love to have a cup of coffee with) is capable of moving both hearts and mountains if given a chance to share her beliefs. The author knew her characters well and revealed their faith to readers so authentically, it felt real. I found myself thinking, "I know a kid like that."

I enjoyed Hannah very much, and found Laura to be the kind of strong woman I'd like to be, but I found myself drawn to the loyalty and sparkle of Kylie. And, the author included a vixen in a lipstick red dress - just when you think all is well - it is not.

While Blue Christmas is a fun, holiday romance, it is more. I could tell you all about that, but I'd rather you read the book and tell me what you discover between the delightfully designed cover or on the backlit pages of your e-Reader.

Even though this book was written for those much, much younger than I am, I could not put it down. I loved Laura and Frank and the family dynamics. The gathering around Jackson's bedside was so emotionally stirring. Then I laughed till I could not breathe at the sports car incident at the Sonic Drive-In. The author once again gave me a fun read with a happy ending.

I was really surprised at how much I liked this book. I stayed up way too late to finish it, but it was worth it. Because I knew this started out as a project for the author's daughter, I thought the story would be entertaining but not polished. I was SO wrong! The editing was great, the dialog was natural and the story was very entertaining. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

If this was aimed at an adult audience, it missed the mark, maybe a tween might like it but I did not. I felt the bands wishy-washy stance on their belief in God was sad and showed no convictions to their professed beliefs. They did not want their Christianity to be "to much in the face of their fans".

When I was a young girl Davey Jones and the Monkees inhabited my daydreams,and my bedroom walls.This story is so well written that it was easy to imagine myself in Hannah's shoes.The lack of sexual scenes was very refreshing. Excellent reading!

We've all spun fantasies of being noticed by a 'boy in the band, and Blue Christmas not only delivers on the fantasy, but weaves an inspiring, faith-filled story sure to cure any holiday 'blues'. Such a fun read--just insert your own band crush no matter what the generation and revel in the sweet nostalgia!

This book was an enjoyable quick read. The author did a good job introducing the characters in a way that you got to know them quickly. The story was a bit predictable but still enjoyable.
