by Sunny Brooks

When stressed out, over-worked single mom Natalie has her plans canceled for a holiday getaway, she is both sad and relieved. Her little two-person floral business is overrun with orders, but her daughter is not going to get the magical Christmas vacation that she’s been dreaming about. When Fiona begins to conspire with her after-school mentor Paul, can the two of them pull off creating a little holiday magical of their own? And if they can, will they be able to convince Natalie to trust Paul enough to experience their heartwarming scheme? Because if she can learn to trust again, Paul may be more than meets the eye!

Fiona is sweet and precocious, and her mother’s biggest fan. Natalie put Fiona in a mentoring program for kids who need a positive male role model a year ago, where she was paired up with Paul. Natalie is super appreciative of the time he gives to her daughter once a week. When her holiday pre-orders orders get too intense for her to handle, she asks Paul if she can pay him to watch Fiona a little extra in the weeks just after Thanksgiving. Amused, and totally fond of Fiona, Paul agrees. Unbeknownst to Nathalie, Paul and Fiona are cooking up a plan all their own to create a magical Christmas that Fiona’s mom will never forget.

With flickering Christmas lights, a roaring fire, and heartwarming Christmas cheer, can Natalie be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas? And as a special Christmas bonus, will Natalie get her wish of help to grow her company so that she can finally balance being a mom and being a businesswoman?

Travel to beautiful, snow-covered Atlanta, Georgia, for a holiday tale that’s a little city, a little country, but a whole lot of heartwarming!

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is an cozy contemporary stand-alone short story with a HEA ending! Story is a clean romance with no offensive language.

The Secret History of Christmas: The Development of Yuletide Traditions and the Battle for Our Heritage

by Patrick Chouinard

When was Christmas first celebrated?

How did December 25 become the official date for the celebration of the birth of Jesus?

Why are the Magi included in the tale?

Who was the real St. Nicholas, and how did he become one of the most famous of all Christian saints?

Why do we burn a Yule log or hang stockings from the mantle?

Why do we cut down and bring inside an evergreen tree and decorate it with lights?

Why is Santa Claus depicted today as an elf?

What ancient pagan ritual has survived into the present-day Christmas celebration?

Who brought Christmas to America?

What role did the Keltic druids have on our modern Christmas celebration?

Why did Santa Claus once ride a goat and why do early depictions show goats hauling Santa’s four-wheeled wagon?

What about holly and mistletoe and evergreensâ??where did they come from and why are they so tightly tied to Christmas?

Has the White world turned Christmas into its own cultural celebration?

Have we taken Christ out of the equation to the disgust of many devout Christians and turned Jesus’s birth into a holiday so filled with Aryan pagan rite and imagery as to make it un-Christian?

This and many more questions will be answered in this fascinating booklet by Patrick Chouinard. This little book helps to dispel myths, explain legends and name the key figures and the roles they played in forming the Christmas celebration as we know it today.

A great gift for young and old. Profusely illustrated.

Softcover, saddle stitched, 70 pages

Enter The Grid

by Gwendolyn Nicholas

Ada’s little Amish village is the last place on Earth, left to fend for itself after something devoured the rest of the world five hundred years ago.

Hard work, tired traditions and unquestioning faith sustain the other villagers, but not Ada. Hiding and reading her forbidden books are her only escape, though secrets are hard to keep in the village. Father must have known that when he left the books to her, just before he disappeared.

When Ada learns another secretâ??that there is a city hidden behind the mountainsâ??she flees the village in search of her father, and her freedom. There she finds a world more fantastic than anything in her books: buildings melt and change shape, lifelike androids walk the streets, and nanobots fulfill the peoples’ every need, as long as they stay chipped and connected to The Grid.

To remain in the city, Ada must be chipped. But how can she choose whether to embrace the future or retreat to the past until she learns if Father is still alive?
