Romancing a Christmas Past

This December the sober, seriously minded authors who contribute to this blog have had a collective rush of blood to their heads. Instead of keeping you enthralled with details of our latest Carina titles, we've decided to get into the spirit of things.

Starting 4th December, we'll be writing a rolling story about a Christmas past. I'd give you a clue about its content but I'm as much in the dark as you are. Claire will start the ball rolling on the 4th, leaving me with two days to post the next installment. Thanks, Claire! Two days laters, Georgie picks up where I left off, and so on. Brave Susan Edwards has 'volunteered', (you did volunteer, didn't you, Susan?), to tidy up the mess we leave her with on the 20th.

In the true spirit of the Lord of Misrule, it's difficult to see how this story will make much sense since we write across different time periods. Be prepared to find a Celtic warriors taking tea with Regency lords and ladies. Oh my!

Each post will contain the name of a Christmas carol. As readers, you're asked to follow the blog and then post a comment on each entry naming that carol. The person with the most correct answers will win a bundle of SEVEN fabulous Carina historical novels to keep them entertained over the festive period, and beyond.

Please support our silliness and let's have some fun.

Wishing you all a joyful and peaceful holiday.
