(Cowboy) Christmas in August on Petticoats & Pistols

I’d do a give away except I don’t have the books yet. I’ll be back in two weeks and do one then.
What I wanted to do in a Christmas book.
Here’s how I see a perfect Christmas story. It needs to have what I think of as a ‘Linus Moment’
Remember, “It’s Christmas, Charlie Brown.” Poor Charlie Brown, the commercialization of Christmas, the uber decorated dog house, the pitiful little tree. And then, when Charlie Brown is at the end of his rope (as always) Linus comes out and we have that moment.
That wonderful moment when Linus tells Charlie Brown the real meaning of Christmas.
All great Christmas stories have that moment.

Hi, Jessica. I'm glad you're stopping in. If you'd like your name in a drawing for my books keep hanging around. I list the blogs here that I'm on elsewhere.

Also, anyone signed up for my newsletter is in a drawing every time I send out a newsletter. I'll be sending one out soon for Cowboy Christmas, which releases in September.
You can sign up on the left side of this blog by typing in the email address where you'd like the newsletter to arrive.

I won't sell your info...honest...I don't know how!

I love the part where Linus tells everyone that they have it all wrong...and then sets them straight. Yeah, every book needs that.
