Christmas Books All Month Long! Day 6: “Eleanor and the Christmas Carol Fudge”


It’s the Christmas season! One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to curl up with a Christmas-themed book, a steaming cup of tea, and a sweet treat. I can’t send you tea and cookies, but I can send you some great book suggestions. Throughout the month I’ll be featuring DOZENS of books. Load that Kindle! It’s going to be a long winter!

Today we have Eleanor and the Christmas Carol Fudge by Tamara Passey. This selection comes from the lovely ladies at Lovin’ The Book’s Christmas Countdown. Don’t miss the giveaway at the end! I’ll be hosting this Christmas Countdown through December 23rd, followed by my Twelve Days of Christmas Book Blast starting December 26th through January 6th.

Q&A With the Author

Describe yourself in 50 words or less.

I like to create stories with words. In between writing projects, I like to paint pictures. I’m a self-taught cook and a self-taught author. I like art museums and gardens. I read eclectically. Memoir, historical, classics, young adult. I love to go on adventures with my family.

What do you love most in the world?

My family and simple joys like autumn leaves and apple pie.

What inspired you to become an Author?

So many good books.

What is your favorite Winter / Holiday tradition?

Attending an annual concert and lights display with family.

What is your trick for getting past writer’s block? And what advice do you have for other authors who are struggling to tell their story?

My trick is a non-negotiable deadline—like a holiday. That keeps me in my chair and writing as much as possible. For authors struggling—when you are tired, learn to rest, not quit. In the words of Julie Berry, remember when life is hard, writing is the antidote.

Now that we’ve gotten to know each other, tell us a story. It can be long or short. From your childhood or last week. Funny, sad, or somewhere in between. Just make sure it’s yours. What’s your story?

How about a poem that tells a story?

Raising Daughters

They need you and need you and need you

Until they don’t

Because you’ve taught them well and

Shown them the way and

Given them all you have

Your heart and your soul and your favorite flat iron.

They thank you, they hug you, and they leave you

In one motion

They are off and you wouldn’t have it any other way

This is why you carried them, why you fed them, and why you held their hand

So one day

They could let go

And live their beautiful life.
