Black Friday: Friends & fiction!

Because who couldn’t use a great read?

Whether you’ve braved the crowds or tried to catch up on Nano at home, I hope your Black Friday is going well. Still looking for some gift ideas? Well, I happen to have a few suggestions of my good friends’ fiction. (Everyone knows books make the best gifts!)

My friend Julie Coulter Bellon premiered her latest international romantic suspense novel, All Fall Down this fall! I was lucky enough to get to read this during the process, and let me tell you, she lives up to every adjective in that genre name!

Her blog tour is in full swing, including a fun giveaway. You can read an excerpt of All Fall Down here. Best of all, it’s on sale for $4.99 for the Thanksgiving holiday!

My friend Emily Gray Clawson (three names. my friends and murderers, eh?) is debuting her first novelette, Things Hoped For (also for Kindle) TODAY! Targeted for LDS Young Women, this book on faith is the first in Of Great Value series on the Young Women values.

She’s also got a fun contest coming up next week, so keep an eye on her blog!

Finally, I have my first published short story in the Sing We Now of Christmas Anthology! These short stories are based around Christmas carols and songs. With 25 stories, you can have one to enjoy each night of December leading up to Christmas! (Warning: mine is apparently sad. Sorry.)

All proceeds from Sing We Now of Christmas go to the National Down Syndrome Society.

What are you reading, buying or giving this holiday season? Come join the conversation!
