Merry Christmas!

It's that time of year again. The time of year when the blogosphere turns into one of these...

Ghost Town

So I'm just going to leave you with this fun video. If you have a young person in your life this Christmas, you'll relate to this song all too well!

Introducing Wickedly They Come by Cathrina Constantine

Today one of our blogging buddies is celebrating the rerelease of a book...and I'm excited about this one because I've actually read it! The author is a woman whose face you may not recognize, since her author picture isn't her profile picture on Blogger:

But you'll know the name. Cathrina Constantine is a talented blogger, novelist, and an all-around great person. Today she's celebrating the re-release of her 2013 book Wickedly They Come:

Below is a blurb to tell you a little about the book. If you like what you see, be sure to head over to Amazon and download your copy!


A gripping, dark fantasy!

A Destined Prophecy: “The White Warrior will be one with Lucifer and God will weep.”

Haunting visions and supernatural talents are the norm for the sixteen-year-old warrior, Jordan and her mother Seeley. Together with their formidable angels they find themselves in peril when a wicked sorcerer is determined to fulfill the prophecy to his lord, Lucifer.

After an ominous vision of spirits inhabiting teenagers in a local school, Jordan enrolls in the social culture of teendom at Elma High to combat soulless demons. She encounters Mark, a mysterious new classmate, who is hell bent on keeping her unscathed from the forces of evil.

The battle between Heaven and Hell is escalating—and Earth is their battleground.


Cathrina resides in Western New York with her husband, five children, two happy-go-lucky Labrador Retrievers and two cats. After a  long hiatus while raising her family, Constantine finally picked up pen and paper and began to hone her craft of writing, then eventually confiscated her son’s computer. 

Cathrina is represented by The Belcastro Literary Agency, and is extremely happy to be working with Sharon Belcastro and Ella Marie Mohan Shupe.

When not with her family, baking, crafting, reading, or stationed at the computer writing, you will find her walking in the backwoods with her dogs, daydreaming.

A Griswold Kind of Christmas

First, I want to congratulate Jeffrey Scott. He won the advanced reader's copy of The Secret Files of Fairday Morrow I gave away when I interviewed the authors, Jess and Stephanie. If you didn't win but still want a copy, the giveaway is in its final days, so find it on my interview post here.

Meanwhile, in the days leading up to Christmas, I wanted to share my fun new Christmas village. From far away, you can't tell what it is...

But as you get closer, that house looks a little too familiar.

There's a standard scene that could be part of any village scene...

But then you see it. After this, you know exactly what movie inspired this Christmas village.

Still not sure? Here's a hint.

Have you ever done a Christmas village?
