O, Happy Days

Lynedoch Crescent T 126

A bit dark for NOON, dontcha think?


In need of a little light in the dark and cold? (As I write this, it is NINE DEGREES, kids. NINE.) Sick of rain, snow, sleet, or gloom of night? (Or, gloom of morning, as the case may be.) Then, you need the December Lights Project. The December Lights project was started by Northern authors living in Wales, Ireland and the UK where it is dark and c-c-cold, and is a bundle of short stories, each one posted a day in December, each with a happy ending.



That makes me overjoyed.



The stories are FREE, and written by the authors you LOVE, including Tiffany Trent, SHERWOOD SMITH (squee!), Leah Cypress, SARAH PRINEAS (again, squee!) Patrick Samphire, Stephanie Burgis, Karen Healey, and more.



Pass the word, guys. It's a little Solstice, Hannukah, Christmas, Kwaanza gift.




CAN YOU ACTUALLY TAKE MORE JOY?
Well, allrighty, then.
Don't miss out on the Winter Blog Blast Tour Stops for today!

That's a bit cold...

I am so frantic with Cybils reading that I haven't had time for those lovely looking stories...Sigh.

Oh, but what a gorgeous photograph. Thanks for that and the link to the December Lights Project. Stay warm!

What a fun-sounding project--I'll have to check it out someday when I have a chance to take a breath!

And, yes, I think that is one gorgeous photograph--but it's probably less enjoyable and more frigid than it looks...I'll stick with the rain and 54 degrees that we're currently experiencing here...

The stories are a brief breath of fresh air; I have them on my desktop so I can go back to them and keep checking if there are new ones.
