Holiday Cheer 2010

PORT OF CALL: Tim Slover’s ‘Comin’ Out fer Christmas’

My good friend and playwright Tim Slover wrote this wonderful piece for his Christmas Party this year — and I just had to share it with you. Yee-ha!

The place of board games in our families traditional holiday celebrations is remembered and Tracy and Laura’s ‘Santa’s Sleigh Ride’ board game is offered for a free trial download.

CREATIVE ENGINE: Rosenstern and Gildencrantz

The sad fate of two — make that three — characters who suddenly realized, in the middle of a book, that they had no business being there at all.


Laura reads a composition by my great-grandmother, Annie Gunn, who was twenty years old at the time she wrote this in 1886. You can see her amazing handwriting in the image above and enjoy the charm of her writing in the podcast.


In addition to the sneak peeks we offered to you of our upcoming projects, we let you know that our ‘Eventide’ novel will be available on for their Kindle readers within days! We’ll post a link here to where you can get yours as soon as it is available.
