ABIGAIL AND MISTLETOE: The Book With Several Lives

ABIGAIL AND MISTLETOE, a book originally bought by Meteor/Kismet, was meant to be published.  It was one of those books that turned me inside out when I was writing it.  But Meteor never had the chance to publish it.  The company folded.  When I learned what was happening, I bought the rights back.  I believed in this book that much.  A few months later, Silhouette bought it to publish as a Special Edition.  Years after it was published, readers would comment on or remember that book.  So when I had the opportunity to get my rights back from Harlequin, I jumped on it.  I indie-published all the other books with rights that reverted to me.  But Abigail was special so I decided to do something different with it.  I sent it to Samhain to see if it would be accepted for their Retro Romance program.  They liked the book and contracted for it.

ABIGAIL AND MISTLETOE, originally published in 1994, has been released today (October 16, 2012) in e-book form by Samhain.  I am as excited to see it published again as I was the first time.  I wanted to share its story with you because many of my readers might remember it.  I wanted to share its story with you because this is one of those books that just keeps on giving...to me and to my readers.

I love writing Christmas books because the season is rich with scents, sounds and colors...as well as memories. I hope you enjoy it.
