The 12 Days of Holly Chase

Tis the season for reading Christmas books!

This year my Christmas novel, THE AFTERLIFE OF HOLLY CHASE, is out in paperback for the first time, and I am doing my best to promote it like crazy this holiday season. It is a young adult retelling of the classic story, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, in which the Scrooge is a spoiled California socialite named Holly Chase.

What the book's about: 

Holly starts out by being visited by the three ghosts and taking a good hard look at how she's been living her life, (as a horrible human being) but instead of repenting and promising to do better, Holly refuses to change. In other words, she's a Scrooge without the normal happy ending and the "God Bless Us, Every One" moment. The company who works to rescue and rehabilitate a Scrooge-like person every year fails to fix Holly, and not too long afterwards, she's killed in a freak accident. She wakes up (or as nearly as one can "wake up" after being killed) in Project Scrooge's company headquarters, where she is informed that her eternal punishment is going to be to serve as the Ghost of Christmas Past for the rest of eternity. Which is totally going to put a damper on her social life . . .

And all that is just what happens in CHAPTER ONE.

I had so much fun writing this book, and I'm so thrilled to be sharing it with readers this holiday season. On that note, we're doing a promotion called TWELVE DAYS OF HOLLY CHASE, which will include a blog tour, a bookstagram tour, a live video chat, and a bunch of amazing giveaways. It starts today! Check out the sites below on the appropriate day to get in on all the fun!

I am super excited to see all this new Holly Chase content and thrilled to be able to give away so much stuff. I had custom ornaments made for me to sign and give away, I am throwing in a few of my favorite Christmas movies, and I have knitted handmade hats and mitts to bestow upon the lucky winners.

Even if you don't win the giveaway, there's some great things I have to give to you.


A trailer in a pear tree:

The talented Sarah Kershaw at made this trailer, and I am in love with it. I love it even more because it features an original song that was written and recorded by my bestie and grad school roommate Lindsey Hunt for her new album.

And the second treat, to anyone who wants it, is

a custom-made Christmas card from ME, 

signed by me, of course, and stuffed with as much swag as I can fit in the envelope. This would also be a good opportunity to get your book's "signed" by me, too. Just let me know how many you need, and I will send along some signed bookplates.

Just click this link and fill out the form, and the card (and stuff) will be coming your way!
