Surprise! New holiday-themed novella out now. Come meet the Hot Mall Santa.
You better watch out. You better not cry. Hot Mall Santa is coming to town!
Instead of round and jolly, this year’s mall Santa is chiseled and smoldering. The second he strolls into Oakville Mall wearing sunglasses, stubble, and his Santa hat cocked to the side, Santa gets all the tongues wagging—especially Tom Webster’s. A lowly retail associate at The Décor Store, Tom spends his time chasing a promotion and boss that are both out of reach. His fantasies about being a ho-ho-ho for Santa soon cross into reality after an unexpected night together. While the rest of the town obsesses over Hot Mall Santa, Tom gets to know the sweet, nerdy history buff under the suit and six-pack abs. But to win Santa’s heart, he must fight off the lusty moms, adoring fans, and his own fear of rejection.
Hot Mall Santa is a fun and sexy novella at 32,000 words filled with nutty Christmas shoppers, a grown man wearing reindeer antlers, and too many holiday puns.
I love the holidays. More specifically, I love the crappy Christmas made-for-TV movies that air religiously on Freeform, Lifetime, Hallmark, you name it. Writing holiday novellas is a way to create my own crappy MOW, albeit ones not suitable for basic cable, ahem.
Hot Mall Santa was inspired by my harried years working retail over the holidays in college, dealing with strange customers who have given me lots of writerly material.
The story is only $2.99 on Amazon and free on Kindle Unlimited. It’s never too early to get into the holiday season (unless it’s before November 1st. That’s a bit too early for me, TBQH).
