I don’t have the cover for my Christmas anthology, HOLIDAY KISSESfrom Carina Press (December 6th release), but I do have the back cover copy. How this works is Carina releases the four contemporary holiday novellas two ways. You can buy each novella individually or you can buy them together in an anthology for a discounted price. That means I’ll have two covers – one for the anthology and one for my novella – and two sets of cover copy. Here’s the copy for my novella, It’s Not Christmas Without You:
Carrie Anders officially broke up with Austin Thomas when she accepted a dream job in the city. Unofficially, she misses him and is tempted to sneak back to her West Virginia hometown to see him. That’s why this year, she’s not going home for the holidays. Her heart can’t take any more mornings-after where nothing has changed—and Austin has made it clear he’s not interested in relocating.
Austin’s been waiting for Carrie to realize she can’t live without him. But when he hears she’s not coming home for Christmas, he decides to take action. If Carrie won’t come to the country, he’s going to bring a piece of the country to Carrie—in the form of a Christmas tree lot just minutes from her apartment. He’s certain daily meetings will entice her to come home with him, this time for good.
Their attraction is as hot as ever, but with such contrary Christmas wishes, can either of them get what they really want this year?
Here’s the copy for the anthology:
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…Love!

I am so excited about this anthology. I’ve known my fellow authors – Shannon Stacey, Jaci Burton and Allison Kent – since I started writing. They are amazing writers and great people. I am truly humbled to be included in a book with them.
