Preparing for the Holidays by Susan Hanniford Crowley

I love the holidays and we have so many approaching. If the snows can only hold off, so we can enjoy to the utmost. Some people cook. Some plan parties. I write books.

Here’s a little excerpt from the book:

“No,” Georgia whimpered at the hand reaching into the window display, yanking out the coat she’d stared at every day for three weeks–the thick brown and black, faux fur coat with the black hood. None of the other coats compared to that one with its elegant lines and obvious warmth. Georgia’s own coat was shabby. She shivered.

If only her credit cards weren’t maxed out. A tear streamed down her cheek before freezing on her face.

Then she saw the reflection. Every time she stopped at this window, his reflection would be there staring back. He stood about two feet behind her, so the image was shadowed. At first, she reasoned that perhaps he lived in the neighborhood and it was a coincidence. Maybe he was looking at coats for his mother or girlfriend. Maybe he was a stalker. She turned to leave.

Someone tapped her on the shoulder. Georgia gripped her bag strap and turned, then looked up. He was tall, broad shouldered, and compassion made his face kind. Bright green eyes gazed into hers. His warm brown hair was cut conservatively, which matched the new, dark brown coat.

“Are you all right?”

“Yes. I’m fine. Thank you.”

“You’re not fine. Please, let me help you.”

Instantly, she burst into a run and didn’t stop until she reached the donut shop across from her apartment. Sitting at a table, Georgia peeked through the window. He hadn’t followed her. Snowflakes floated down obscuring her vision. Maybe she overreacted. Maybe not. You couldn’t be too careful in New York. She got up and went to the counter to order coffee and donuts to go.

When she stepped outside again, the lights had come on up and down the street. It was beginning to look like Christmas. It could be so magical if it wasn’t so sad. Georgia figured that she would run out of money by New Year’s. What a way to start the New Year. Jobless. Homeless. Broke.

Georgia looked up and down the street but saw no sign of the man from the reflection and decided it was safe to cross the street to her apartment.


But is she safe? If you need to know, A Vampire for Christmas is available in  Kindle

In a week or so, I’m planning a surprise for everyone. I can’t tell you now. It’s not quite done.

In October, we will be having Halloween guests and contests scattered throughout the month.
