My short story What Breaks a Man was listed in Other Distinguished Mystery and Suspense of 2021 in Best American Mystery and Suspense!
Welcome to the last day of 2021, and get ready for a trip back to the final hours of the last millennium!
I’m delighted to share my contribution to this year’s Holiday Spectacular from WMG Publishing with Sometimes Strange Magic Casts the Best Spell. You may remember the setting from The Magic Cat of the Hidden Springs Inn and Spa and The Inn, the Black Cat, and Two Halves of the Same Heart, both featured in past Holiday Spectaculars.
This time we visit 1999, which those of us who’ve been around long enough to remember it know was a very strange time indeed. Especially those of us who worked in the IT field.
You can read Sometimes Strange Magic Casts the Best Spell free on this site until January 3rd, with my warm wishes for a Happy New Year in 2022!
And my deepest, most sincere hope that we all experience a whole lot less strange over the next twelve months and into the future.
So excited to see all of these stories out in the world, and delighted to have one of my own included! I dug into my nerdy fascination with flowers and pollinators for this one, with a heavy dose of my lifelong love of all things Twilight Zone.
You’ll find “An Impossible Desert Flower” in Open Ended Threat, and stories from a bunch of my favorite writers in all four volumes of the Cave Creek series, including two from Jason A. Adams!
“The Inn, the Black Cat, and Two Halves of the Same Heart” is free on this website for one week only! This is a sequel of sorts to my story “The Magic Cat of the Hidden Springs Inn and Spa from last year’s Holiday Spectacular, and welcomes our cat Lafayette to the literary world.
It’s also available as a part of the WMG Holiday Spectacular 2020, which brings a new holiday story to your inbox every day through to New Year’s Day, as well as an ebook compilation due out in July of 2021. It’s not too late to sign up!
Spiral Publishing authors Kari Kilgore and Jason A. Adams are delighted to return to the WMG Publishing Holiday Spectacular!
Be sure to check out the Kickstarter to get one for yourself, your reader and writer loved ones, and amazing stretch goal rewards for even more holiday cheer.
Thank you for stopping by to read my sweet holiday romance The Magic Cat of the Hidden Springs Inn and Spa! Alas, the free week is over, much like the holiday season for 2019.
Check out this post for more information about the WMG Holiday Spectacular, including my two stories, one by Jason A. Adams, and a bunch of wonderful holiday tales by some of my favorite writers.
Thank you for your fantastic support in 2019, and Happy New Year!
