Want heart felt stories with touching messages and reminders of the true meaning of Christmas then read:'Tis the Holiday Spirit by Ottilie Weber or Sweet Child by Mark Koning or Memories of the Splendid Splinter by Richard Phelan or The Carpenter's Wife by Misty Baker and the one that stabbed me right in the heart, Whimper by C.S. Splitter.
Sentiment isn't your thing then how about a couple of stories with stark reminders of what should be important: family, friends, helping others etc, for this I recommend: All I Want for Christmas by Angel Armstead or Christmas Story by Phil Cantrill and Only That Day Dawns by Angela Yuriko-Smith.
Not into heavy messages but instead you prefer something funny and light try: The Perfect Ornament by Cambria Hebert or Christmas Disco by Paige Kellerman and The Hunt by Amy Eye and The Turkey Avenger by E.C. Stilson
How about a little romance? For the lovers there is How I Found My Soul Mate by E.C. Stilson ( a funny and clever story about being stuck in the waiting room of the Hereafter) how about Accidentally Gift Wrapped by Tricia Kristufek or A Sprig of Holly by JA Clement or Santa's Ninja Elf by Lizzie Ford.
Perhaps you are a fan of stories with a little supernatural spice I would recommend for you: Last Year's Eggnog by Brett Talley or The Christmas Ghost by Vered Ehsani and Star of Christmas by L.A. Wright or The Mirror by Cassie McCown.
If you are die hard paranormal fan this book has something for you. Yes, that's right there are zombies, aliens, sexy werewolfs and more in these offerings :
An Amy Harkstone Christmas by Mark Mackey and The Road to Comfort by S. Patrick Pothier and Broken Glass by Nicolette Alexandr and Blank by Cambria Hebert and Higher Ground by Shane Stilson.
There is a fantasy offering with The Gateway Incident by Catherine Forbes and Paul Woods.
Finally, the one that had me scratching my head that falls into the Horror category is The Face by Mark R Faulkner.
So you see this book certainly has variety. Perfect if you need a short read or you are suffering from attention deficit! Have I convinced you yet to buy this book? What if I told you that it could be purchased for the bargain price of $3.99 @Smashwords and Barnes and Noble (Amazon offers a paperback copy). No!? You are a hard sell if that tantalizing price doesn't convince you to purchase a copy or two. How about this, the reason you should get this book is because the authors are donating every penny of the sales to help the NCADV (National Coalition Against Domestic Violence). You heard it right. All money will go to help the many victims of abuse. That my friends and fellow readers is why you should procure a copy or copies of this work. I can't promise that you will completely love every single story but that isn't the point. Your small contribution will make a difference in someone's life and in exchange you get a bunch of fun little stories (pretty sweet deal if you ask me). Many I am sure you will read and share during the holiday season. I commend these wonderful authors and the others behind the scenes who helped put it together, Amy Eye, Jennifer Pringle, Vered Ehsani, Tricia Kristufek, Cassie McCown, Alan Zendell, Dafeena Jameel and the illustrious C.S. Splitter, who can be found at Creative Reads trying to get The Willing to read The Reluctant or is it The Reluctant to read The Willing? Either way hats off to this great group of people. Here is to many more collaborations. So quit sitting there! Go get your copy now, read and enjoy. Then head over to Goodreads and meet the gang at Creative Reviews! Tell them I sent you! Happy Holidays!
Apart from the stories themselves is the story behind this book. A group of authors got together and decided to share time and talent to contribute to the well-being of others. Every penny earned in profits will be going to the (US) National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, a charity that helps women and children escape from abuse. This makes it a true Christmas gift all around. This is a great buy for people looking for something a little more meaningful to stuff in that stocking or slip under the tree. Just make sure there aren't any Christmas vampires lurking under the branches before you do...!
