I love the Holiday Season. Every year I publish a holiday novella just for you, my readers. Last year, I published a novella titled 12. I had every intention of publishing the sequel 12 + 1 last year as well but, well, it never got written.
The beginning of the novella sat there, waiting for me. A few days ago, I got the idea that the novella needed. So, when I thought there was going to be no holiday novella to share with you, there is! 12 + 1 is a tad bit shorter than 12, clocking in at just under 6, 000 words. I’m really thrilled with how it turned out and can’t wait for you to read it.
However, here’s the thing: you’ll be able to read both 12 and 12 + 1 for FREE! How cool is that?
Oliver hates Christmas. He hates the fakery of it, the false joy that lifts everyone’s spirits. But only momentarily, only until the next box is opened, until the next piece of paper is torn away. But he is a true bringer of joy. In taking their lives, he is the giver of ultimate pleasure; and what better gift could there be for the Holidays than eternal bliss?
But this year is special. This year is 12.
Every year, for eleven years, Oliver has chosen twelve people, one person for each of the twelve days of Christmas. This year is 12. The final year. This year is personal. This is the year of the 12, payment for all of Oliver’s hard work. And he intends to collect. Eleven victims have already fallen-and Oliver has saved the best for last.
Merry Freaking Christmas. This year, there will be blood.

And here’s a bit about the sequel, 12 + 1:
It was the season where her lust for blood began, where father Oliver led her on a path of killing and taking life-except he called it giving joy for the Holidays.
She has achieved some renown as a performance artist. What the art going public don’t know is that all of her “canvasses” die. She takes them all, the blood hunger Oliver woke in her all those years ago far too strong to ignore.
Hoping to fool Oliver, she intercepts him in the street and leads him back to her apartment, hoping to once and for all give her father the ultimate Christmas gift and end his reign of terror forever.
Lenore plans to kill her father and take back her life this Christmas Eve. However, Christmas has a few gifts planned for her that Lenore doesn’t count on and red, after all, is a colour of the Holidays…
