Did I ever mention to you that my parents are writers? Not aspiring likes to write short stories and share with friends writers…. but REAL writers… like New-York-Times Bestselling Authors! I grew up in house where dragons, wizards and other fictional characters roamed the halls freely. Christmas was ( and still is) a special time in my parents’ household (I still suspect my dad’s actual occupation of being Santa Claus). To celebrate this holiday season my parents are taking a page from Dickens and writing a short serial. They’ll be releasing chapters as they write and at the end you’ll get an ebook of the completed novella. Here’s a short description:
Duke Wenceslas is freezing in his castle, demanding that some brave knight will bring him the head of the dragon who is keeping his woodsmen from gathering firewood. At the same time, Emperor Dragon Quorlas is roasting in his lair under the mountain, demanding that some brave dragon from among his brood will bring him the head of the knight who is preventing them from gathering cows to eat. Meanwhile, in the village of Betwixt, young Nicholas wants only to deliver his gifts this Yuletide Eve but can’t until he can find a way to convince the knights and the dragons to make peace. Will young Nicholas find a way of keeping his head while all others seem intent on losing theirs?
A few things you should now about my parents’ work. These stories are meant for families to read together and enjoy together. They are ethical and moral stories – something my parents strive for in their work. One more cool thing is that you’ll have the chance to read and comment on the chapters while my parents are writing them! How fun is it to see the creative process and be a part of it! The best part – it’s only $4.95 for the novella and subscription. To get more information on this book visit Tracy and Laura Hickman’s website here.
