Twisty Christmas Tales on Holly Lisle’s Blog

For those who love Christmas Tales!

Happy New Year!

I hope your Christmas was merry and bright, and that your New Year started off with a positive bang or a relaxing sleep-in, whichever you preferred!

What Christmas tales do I have to tell? My family had a great Christmas. I usually take my kids ( and a few tag-alongs) camping before Christmas while our favourite camping spot is bright, sunny and relatively deserted. Luckily, I have  a fantastic friend who is always game to come with me!

This year we arrived home on the afternoon of the 23rd of December, tanned, tired and with a terribly-full car to unpack: 4 mountain bikes, 3 tents, & mountains of camping gear. After swimming, biking, mooching around the campfire and cooking all our woodsmoke-flavoured meals , we were ready to relax, but, no! The gear had to be unpacked.

It does mean that Christmas Day itself is very relaxed because everyone already feels like they’ve had a great Christmas adventure! The long summer holidays can be spent doing other fun things, like writing and day trips!

So I’ve been flat out (haven’t we all?) but wanted to let you know that I recently had two articles feature on Holly Lisle’s international writing school blog. Both articles are about The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales, a highly successful anthology that I co-edited and Phantom Feather Press (published in 2014).

The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales – 31 stories by 27 authors including Joy Cowley, David Hill and Dave Freer

The first article is 8 Tips for Creating a Strong Anthology РMy Experience with The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales.

The second is 7 Tips for Launching a Bestseller – My Experience with The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales.

And of course, The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales is available in e-book and paperback on amazon, here, if you’d like to inject a little post-Christmas Cheer into your New Year!

I hope 2018 brings you many opportunities and a great deal of happiness!
