Blog Party -- Thirteen Things About Home For Christmas!

Welcome to day two of the Kate Davies Home For Christmas Blog Party! In honor of Thursday Thirteen, here are thirteen things you may not know about Home for Christmas, my upcoming release from Samhain Publishing.

1. It's my first Christmas-themed story.
2. It's included in THE PERFECT GIFT, the 2007 Samhain holiday anthology.
3. It's one of the only books by Samhain to be released in print first, then e-book.
4. THE PERFECT GIFT has been on the Amazon top twenty romance anthologies bestsellers list since September.
5. My mom and her best friend gave me the original idea for the story, although I've changed it so much I doubt they'll recognize it now.
6. Ethan and Sophia are both a bit older than the typical romance hero and heroine -- and I adore them because of it.
7. I love the idea of going on a Christmas cruise, though I've never had the opportunity.
8. Home For Christmas is one of five stories in THE PERFECT GIFT -- and I'm not exaggerating when I say I love each one of the other stories.
9. The brilliant Anne Cain created the cover, which I absolutely adore. It rocks.
10. I'll be sharing a blurb and some excerpts over the next couple of days.
11. There's an interview on The Romance Studio that goes into a little more detail about the book. Stop by and check it out!
12. I'll be giving away some prizes at the end of the blog party, to celebrate the release of my new book. Every comment you post is an entry into the drawing. So stop by and post!
13. The e-book version will be available on December 18!

Carolan Ivey said...

Congrats on the new release, Kate! Merry Christmas! :)

Denise Patrick said...

Ooooh, I may just have to get this one to read over the holidays. I don't read many Christmas themed stories unless they are historical, but the blurb on this one sounds good.

Happy TT!

I absolutely adore Christmas stories--especially romances, Kate. I hope that Home for Christmas brings you a great big Santa-sized bag of sales and nothing but fabulous reviews! Congrats!

Maureen said...

I like the older heros and heroines in stories. There seem to be more of them lately.

Jane said...

I like reading about more mature couples.

Anonymous said...

Now that it's December I've finally dived into the anthology--starting with this story, of course. ;) I love it! Makes me want to take a holiday cruise. ::sigh::


Cathy said...

great interview Kate, and a great list too.

N.J.Walters said...

The cover is beautiful. Congratulations on the release!

Kate Davies said...

Thanks, everyone, for the good wishes!

Denise, I hope if you buy it that you enjoy it! I've been on an historical romance kick lately, so I completely understand the draw of historical Christmas romances.
