Happy Book Birthday Holiday Magick!

It's Here!!


People don't usually question holiday traditions or their origins, but maybe they should. Over centuries, explanations of how and why holidays exist may have been lost or changed. 
Some holiday histories might only be known by a few individuals. Ancient magic spells could have influenced how we celebrate today. Fairies, zombies, or demons may have shaped our holidays. 
Consider the following... 
Why do people give red roses and cards on Valentine's Day? 
Is there more to the story of Purim than is traditionally told? 
Why do people wear green on St. Patrick's Day? 
What happens to spirits that are captured during the Japanese Doll Festival? 
Where does Santa get his helpers? 
You may think you know the truth, but you can't be too sure.

Okay guys I'm pretty excited about this release. I may be a bit partial to this book (since I have two stories in it) but anthologies in general are awesome. Not only do you get to read stories from familiar names, but you get to "meet" new talent as well. This collection has work from some of my favorites (Kate Kaynak, Trish Wooldrige, Daniel Cohen) and I'm looking forward to stories from new names like L. M. Graham, Kendra Saunders, and Rich Storrs. Be sure to order your copy wherever you buy books, and let me know what your favorite Holiday story is!
