Introducing the Fright Before Christmas Anthology

As you'll hear me say multiple times in October, I love October...mostly because I love scary stuff. But I love Christmas, too. Fright Before Christmas combines those two worlds. Today, they're revealing the super-fun cover:



Best of all, it includes one of my favorite blogger-authors, Medeia Sharif.



And it's co-edited by my very awesome friend Kelly Hashway! You can pre-order the book for $1.99 for a limited time on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or iBooks. They've even put together an awesome book trailer to give you a little preview. Scroll down for the blurb if you want to know a little more about what the book is about. There's also a cool Goodreads giveaway at the bottom of this blog, so don't forget to enter!



Blurb:

It's the most wonderful time of year...or is it? 

Christmas Eve is a night of mystery and magic, but not always in ways we expect. Things lurk in the shadows and they're not the least bit jolly or merry. Let's just say some presents are better left unopened.

‘Tis the season to be screaming along with our thirteen tales of holiday horrors. Ghosts. Monsters. Demons. And more! 

This Christmas, be careful what you wish for...

  17. Ooo~ Might have to add this to my list of books to read. I always make a point of "getting in the mood" for Halloween and Christmas and such, so this might be a great addition.

  18. Wow, sounds like a great collection of stories! My kids, especially, love a good scare.

    And thanks for recommending those classics to me. I'll be sure to check out Portrait of a Lady. I enjoyed Great Expectations, but that was decades ago and deserves a revisit. :)

  19. I am thoroughly disappointed that I didn't hear about this sooner so I could have submitted to it.

    I will still pick it up and check it out, though. :-P

    1. I'm not sure how the submission process worked--I know Kelly works for Leap Books, though. I suspect Leap put the group of others together--or it went through the usual submission process? I do know Kelly did mention a while ago that she's an editor for Leap Books and she's looking for great books, so submit away!
