What Should I Write for December?

Normally only my patrons get to vote, but this time YOU can help decide what I write next! Which short story should I release on Patreon in December?

Which one sounds interesting to you? Leave a comment!
[UPDATE 11/20/17:] Voting is closed! Between all the places I asked for votes, "The 12 Cats of Christmas" won! I'll be releasing it to my Patreon subscribers of all levels mid-December.

Think I'll find time to ALSO write "Snowbound Christmas" and release it on Kindle for everyone else?

Christmas Short Stories by Rebekah Morris

Christmas tour

Christmas time is here! Okay, so not quite yet. It's still over a month away, but that doesn't mean we can't start celebrating early, right? So today, we're celebrating the release of not one, not four, but eight new Christmas books! All written by Rebekah A. Morris. I'll be spotlighting two of her books today and you can find out more about the others as you follow the tour.

I thoroughly enjoyed both of these short stories and I'm positive you will as well! Check it out...

About the Books

Christmas Smiles

This was Lana’s second Christmas without her parents, who had died in an accident, and she was sure it would bering nothing but tears, because she and her aunt couldn’t seem to get along. When a frightening experience occurs, Lana, her cousin, and her aunt and uncle find unexpected cause for smiles.

Christmas Eve at the Back Door

The Great Depression is in full swing, and Mrs. Kabrick hopes to make Christmas a special time for her children even though they don't have much. With the back door constantly opening and shutting, time flies bringing cold air, visitors, and a very special Christmas Eve.

I Just Published Something (Try Not to Look Shocked)

Well. That felt good!
This morning I hit publish on a short story I pulled from the archives and polished up a bit.

Meet The Art Contest...

The Art Contest

Two days ago, the Nazis rolled into Marie’s hometown. With her mother trapped in the countryside and her father ordered to perform piano concerts for the invaders, the 12-year-old’s life is turned upside down.

When she learns there is more to her pianist father than meets the eye, Marie must work with him to sneak important information past the watching Nazis.

This is short story (approx. 12 minutes average reading time). It contains themes of family, adventure, and trusting God in hard times.

Available now on Amazon.
Coming soon to other retailers.

Review by Steve Mathisen: "The Art Contest is a delightful little story about a French girl who gets a chance to do a little thing to help the French resistance. Told from the girls perspective it is intriguing and imaginative. My only complaint is that there was not more of it."

Look What I Got to Design!

...the cover for a new release by Lauren K. Lotter! It sounds like a lovely story, and I can't wait to read it!

Adah's world is turned upside down by the sudden death of her fiancée. After years of declaring that she will always be single, David broke down her walls and she fell hopelessly in love.

But just three weeks before their wedding, he is killed in a car accident. A happily-ever-after ending becomes a distant dream. Adah is lost without him and she tries to drown her grief in a crazy social life, but finds no peace.
In desperation, she heads off into the mountains, searching for a cure for  her broken heart.
Her lack of wilderness experience gets her into many predicaments as she attempts to live life as the pioneers did. No running water, no electricity, a rock slide, an uncooperative wood stove and an unexpected late spring blizzard nearly overwhelm her.
As if that wasn't adventure enough, a nearly frozen man appears on her doorstep in the middle of the raging blizzard. Adah is shocked to discover a young child cradled in his arms.  
While the little girl, Sarah, seems unharmed, Adah works desperately to save the man's life. With limited medical knowledge, she does the best she can, but a high fever and other injuries threaten his life. 
 The man, whose name is Ethan, regains consciousness and seems to be recovering just as the storm abates.
But flooding, mud slides and avalanches force the trio to remain in the cabin for the unforeseeable future.
Adah is disturbed by Ethan's talk of God. Raised to be an Atheist, any talk of religion bothers her. But the more Ethan speaks of his God, the more curious Adah becomes. Something about the relationship Ethan has with his God calls to her. It is more than just a religion. Could God be the answer? Can He heal her broken heart?
Join Adah in her search for the truth. Will she finally find the love she has been searching for all her life?

Book Cover Reveal: "Where Shadows Lie" by Tialla Rising

Tialla was one of my earliest book cover design clients, so when she asked if I'd like to participate in her cover reveal I snatched the opportunity to finally, officially share this design. Sounds like it will be an interesting read (for older readers, obviously)--I'm looking forward to checking it out!

Check out the book cover and trailer reveal for Tialla Rising's upcoming release, Where Shadows Lie, and continue below to enter the giveaway! 

Release date: June 2015

Synopsis via Goodreads:

His dark past haunts him. His new life taunts him.

After twenty years in the gangs and a hefty prison sentence, an early release gives Shawn the opportunity to turn his life around.

But that isn’t so easy when gangs are involved.

Only a year into his fresh start, the gang catches on and makes Shawn’s life miserable. After all, once a gang member, always a gang member. His very blood belongs to them.

Threats become promises. Whispers become actions. Words become bullets. He must fight – not only for his life, but to save his honor, prove his integrity, and protect the woman he loves.

An ember of hope glows in the darkness, strengthening his resolve. Will her support and his determination be enough to dispel the shadows of his past?

A story of discovery and faith, love and perseverance.



Tialla Rising is a Christian young woman living with her family in the mountains of Arizona. She loves to write and will passionately spend hours long into the night developing her stories. Like most writers, Tialla fills her spare time with reading from her favorite fantasy and mystery genres. A good book, a stormy day, and an iced coffee comprise her favorite moments.
