Naughty or Nice? Read all about the Writing Wenches here...

Naughty AND Nice, those Wenches. 

On December 1, a group of women (and one man they affectionately call “the barkeep”) who call themselves the Writing Wenches pulled off a pretty major accomplishment. They released an anthology collection of twenty-one holiday themed short romance stories, in a single volume, called Unwrapping Love.  It became available for sale on Cyber Monday of this year!

The book is huge. It's got 738 pages. I was one of several proofreaders and take it from me, there is some serious talent in this group of 21 authors. I am extremely proud to be a part of this anthology.

The book couldn't have been completed without the help and guidance of PageCurl Publishing and Promotions. Unwrapping Love was published under their imprint, and they provided editing, formatting, marketing, and cover design services. 

The following Writing Wenches are hosting a blog hop. Each of them is hosting a giveaway, and telling you a bit about her part in Unwrapping Love! You can stop by each website to learn more about the anthology and enter each individual giveaway, which will be posting over the next several days.

  1. I just got this book and so far, I have only read one story, " Noah's Candy Cane " and I loved it. I am sure the other stories will be as good. There is a lot of wonderful stories in that book.

    1. I'm absolutely thrilled you like my story! Thank you for commenting!

  2. "Noah's Candy Cane" was a wonderful story. I thouroughly enjoyed it .The writer did a wonderful job of telling a great story. I can't wait to read the other stories in the book.

  3. I know it's not romance, but I love "The Polar Express." I watch it with my kids every year, and it proves that magic does still exist!
