ALMOST DELETED


When I finished the manuscript for Red Snowflakes, the book left me with such an unsettling feeling, I almost deleted the file! It was only after letting the story "season" and the help of a great editor at The Wild Rose Press, that I began to see Red Snowflakes in a new light.


I absolutely love stained-glass artwork and knew I wanted to use it in a book. The pieces I kept seeing reminded me of Christmas, but Christmas is a magical time and I wanted to bring that concept to the story, so Dimitri became vampire. Not only is Dimitri a Strigori vampire, but he is an artist. He works with stained-glass and creates a snowflake each year he waits for his mate to decorate his Christmas tree. It's a crazy idea, I know, but it worked.


I wanted the heroine, or Dena, to be intelligent, beautiful, and educated, but have some knowledge and experience regarding death. In my mind, it made perfect sense that Dena is a forensic photographer with a compassionate side she keeps buried. It's only Dimitri's tug on her heartstrings that brings Dena fully into his world with acceptance and love.


Red Snowflakes is a story about acceptance, compassion, the power of love, and the magic of Christmas. Isn't that something we all want in a world of diversity? Red Snowflakes is a novella, but it packs a powerful punch. Read the reviews on Goodreads. Read the reviews on Amazon.



N.N.Light's Book Heaven Review for Red Snowflakes and Book Giveaway!



Here's what N.N.Light's Book Heaven had to say:

Photographer Dena Williams has had enough of death and seeks solitude in the Oregon wilderness. She steps out too far onto a frozen lake and goes under. She somehow makes it out but she’s bleeding and near death when she crawls onto a porch and knocks. Little does she realize, her life is about to change forever. The owner of said house, Dimitri, is a sexy vampire and when he offers her an eternity of happiness, will she say yes and allow Dimitri to turn her or will she flee?


Red Snowflakes is a testament to the power of love and how even a vampire deserves true happiness. I connected with hero and heroine instantly, my heart breaking for their loneliness. Dena has great strength and goes through all the degrees of believability, just like I would. The dialogue is peppered with humor, wise cracks and emotion. The ending I was not expecting but it made me love Red Snowflakes all the more. I even forgave the author for bending the vampire rules.


If you’re looking for an uplifting holiday romance with bite, pick up Red Snowflakes today. Highly recommend!


Favorite Character/Quote: Dimitri. From the moment he appears, my heart went out to him. He’s a vampire who has lost hope, waiting and craving his mate. Every year, since he turned, he’s created a red snowflake and hung it on the tree. Talk about romantic.
