My Life as a Holiday Album is LIVE!
MY LIFE AS A HOLIDAY ALBUM is here!!!!!! Seriously… I am so excited about this story and these beautiful couples. I’m incredibly grateful to everyone who helped make it a reality, to all my ARC readers for sharing their love of it with the world, to my sensitivity readers for ensuring it was everything it could be, and for YOU following me on this writer journey.
Do you remember me telling you how this story even came about? Well, I was doing a #MondayMusic post two years ago (Dec. 2018) with Lady A’s version of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” and I was talking about my love of holiday songs. One of my readers, Rachel Robison, told me I should write a holiday album story.
That stunned me. I hadn’t even considered it.
But then, my wheels started churning, churning, churning.
I wondered who I’d cast as the leading characters which led my thoughts to the kids of the original cast of the Album series. I tried to pick one of them to write about, but then I couldn’t… because ALL their stories were tumbling around in my brain demanding to be told. That’s when I landed on the idea of using all 6 couples.
I began writing their stories in 2019. But I was still battling my health issues and teaching and life just got in the way. Plus, what I was trying to do with this novel was HARD WORK. Interconnecting, multiple point of views, carrying forward a timeline across all of them, and including an overarching bigger plot while still giving each couple their own happily ever after. Phew. It was a huge challenge. So, I didn’t get it out in 2019 like I’d wanted.
Then, I had to put the book aside to work on Truck and Jersey’s story and then Dani and Nash’s. Suddenly, I was worried I wouldn’t get it out again this year. But I buckled down, worked my fingers to nubs, and finished a draft I was proud to send it out to my sensitivity readers.
Long story short, you now have MY LIFE AS A HOLIDAY ALBUM!
Here’s what more of the reviewers have to say about it:
“One of my favorite holiday reads of the year.”
“Real, honest, flawed characters…you want to know.”
“The feeling of coming home and the fire of new love all packaged together with a happily-ever-after bow.”
“This story is pure genius. Like mind blowing genius.”
“This book is the perfect way to kick start the holiday season.”

While the holiday album kids are out spreading joy through their words, I’m spreading joy by doing a ginormous giveaway. The downside is that it’s exclusive to my FaceBook reader’s group.

By the way, I’ll be in that same group off and on throughout the day today, sharing info about Holiday Album and maybe doing some additional smaller giveaways. So, that’s double the reason to join, right?
If you aren’t on Facebook, or just don’t want to join the group, I won’t be offended, and you can still have a chance at a signed copy of My Life as a Holiday Album using the link listed above with the buy links.
Before I go, I just wanted to say THANK YOU one more time for being on this journey with me. I hope you get a chance to read MY LIFE AS A HOLIDAY ALBUM.
