On the Eighth Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, eight maids a milkin’…
You know, this true love must be loaded! Did you know that today these 12 days would cost your true love about $107,000, especially these 8 maids a milkin’ between the maids and the cows and all their upkeep. LOL!
Since I’m a little lacking in funds, I’ve only got six maids to share with you today and they’re here to tell us about an anthology they put together to help raise money for a local literacy organization!
So without further ado, here is a little bit about the LOVE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS anthology! You can also click here for more information.
Leave a comment on this blog for a chance to win a copy of THE CLAIMED, the second book in the SIN HUNTERS series!

About the Authors
Christine Wingate is the author of various e-books, including His Escape Artist. With a love for 70’s culture – she owns both a gold and white disco boots. While several of her book heroes are bodyguards, at the time of this writing Christine does not yet have one in her employ. But if and when she does hire one, odds are good applicants will be asked to demonstrate their ability to tolerate disco and 70’s soft rock tunes.
Susan Craig lives with her husband — in a house they gutted and remodeled together. It comes as no surprise, then, that her life as an author grew out of a desire to do something completely new. With a doctorate in neuroscience, her “day job” is complex, busy and interesting, but “mostly factual.” So she enjoys opportunities to create fictitious stories of love and romance purely from her imagination.
Jeanne Kern’s life became a romance novel when she met husband Rich on line and moved to Nebraska with scaredy cat Boo Radley. Happily retired from teaching high school in Texas, she serves on too many committees and boards and is trying to learn to say no so she can devote more time to writing. See her website www.jeannekern.com for news about her travels, acting career, and e-book Destination: Love and Whales.
LK Lien has worked as a waitress, in a bank, as a photojournalist, a writer and an editor.
Karyn Cole has been a fan of romance since a charming Prince’s kiss woke Sleeping Beauty. (As a grownup she decided to see what science could teach her and discovered that chemistry didn’t just happen in a laboratory. A good romance story lets a reader experience the chemistry between characters.) Now, Karyn writes romance where the Princess doesn’t always need a princely rescue, but isn’t opposed to the kissing part. Drop her a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BJ Akin has found that writing stories is almost as much fun as telling them. During her life of living in the Nebraska Sandhills, she experienced things that anyone in their right mind would never attempt or be dared into doing! But that never seemed to stop her. Drawing on her love of this region — and the people who live there — she shows that life even in the “olden days” still had its excitement…and romance.
