Christmas is in the air...

Friday, 29 November 2013

... And it's all over the floor of my home office. 

As I mentioned before, I have a load of bows to make for the craft show I'm at next weekend. I have been working at them every night (except a couple when I haven't been able to stay awake past the kids bedtimes). 

Last night, I officially started the Christmas-y bows. Tonight I'm back at all things jolly, plus some One Direction, Justin Beiber (I know, I can't stand him either), Cinderella, and minions. While I'm very excited about making them-- in fact, I can't wait to get the little monster to bed so I can get started-- all of those jingle bells and sparkles make me long to curl up in my onesie with a cup of chai and a Christmas romance. 

For a long time now, I have looked forward to the release of the Harlequin Christmas stories just about as much as I look forward to the arrival of candy canes in stores (and that is saying something!).  This year I am scouring the Entangled Publishing site for holiday themes to see what they have, too. There is just something about a wintery, feel-good romance to get you through the crowds, crap weather, and cash-flow nightmares. 

I like writing holiday inspired stories, too. My suspense is set at Halloween and when I planned out the series I am writing, I chose Valentine's Day, Fourth of July, and Thanksgiving as inspiration, but I think I might have to add Christmas in there as well. 

What are your favourite holidays for romance?
