December 3, 2014 – December Meeting

 A wonderful tradition continues!

JoAnn Ross, friend and mentor to so many, is back!

I gather JoAnn Ross has been as busy as ever. Even busier, based on her recent and coming soon releases. I know we’re all excited to have JoAnn back for another beloved Christmas visit. And she’s got a new HOLIDAY novella to distract us after those hours of dealing with holiday shopping…and traffic.

So get ready for an awesome kickoff to the holiday season and a great reason to relax with a good book…

You_Again_ebook_FINAL_jpgIt’s back to Shelter Bay with You Again, a new holiday novella!

A book nerd, a brainiac science guy, and a misplaced killer whale…

Meghann Quinn wasn’t always a hugely successful author. Adam Wayne wasn’t always a marine biologist studying whales. Back in high school in Shelter Bay, Oregon, she was the shy book nerd helping the brainiac science guy pass English. Meghann had no idea Adam would turn into such a hottie. Adam has no idea their once-upon-a-time sweet summer romance inspired Meghann’s popular teen novels.

Two shy geeks didn’t have the courage to share their true feelings back then. But now that Meghann’s back in town, they’re pondering life’s important questions. Such as, will Adam ask her to the Snow Ball? And what are they going to do about the lost Orca who shows up on Christmas Eve? And can two nerds get past their initial insecurity to take a second chance on a once-in-a-lifetime love?

And, this story is also being released in an anthology:


I don’t think JoAnn will mind if I post the blurb from the second story in this series, authored by Jessica Scott. To be honest, both of them have me ready to heat up a cup of cocoa and curl up in my favorite chair:

All I Want For Christmas Is You – A Coming Home Novella 

From USA Today Bestselling author Jessica Scott comes an all new novella about a woman who came back from war changed and the man who loves her enough not to let her go.

All Major Patrick MacLean wanted was Christmas with the woman and child who were his family in everything but name. But Captain Samantha Egan has come back from the war a different woman than the one who left – and she doesn’t know if she can love him anymore.

But neither of them counted on the determination of a little girl they both call daughter and if Natalie has her wish, her parents may have no idea what’s coming for them. It’s going to take Christmas miracle to bring these two wounded warriors back from the edge of a broken heart.

You can read more about JoAnn and what’s in store for the new year, along with information about all her stories here.
