If you’re like me, you love Christmas, but you find a lot of the books and movies and TV specials are just a little too wholesome. You need some darkness mixed in with the Christmas lights and some blood spattered across your candy canes.

When I saw the call for stories for a Christmas horror anthology, I jumped at the opportunity. I had a lot of fun writing my short story “It’s that Time of Year”, and hopefully the readers will have a lot of fun reading it! (And by “fun”, I mean that they’ll bite their nails all the way to the quick and curse at me when they read that final, gut-wrenching twist.)

I have a little sneak peek of my story, just the first paragraph to whet your appetite:

It always appears on Christmas Eve. It always looks the same. It peeks up at me from under the drooping branches of the Christmas tree. Nestled among the presents, it masquerades as one of them. Wrapped in reddish brown paper that is so old, so faded that it curls at the edges. Garnished with a flimsy bow that is so fragile it would take barely a twist of the fingers to unravel it. It calls to me. It begs to be unwrapped.

You can pick up your copy on Amazon as an ebook, paperback, or hardcover. It’s also available free on Kindle Unlimited!

Happy Holidays!

Eerie Christmas
