Cats, Christmas, and Romance by Mae Clair

I am so excited to give the very talented Mae Clair the center stage so she can announce her new book, Food For Poe! This is a lovely Christmas Novella you won't want to miss!

(You can read my Review Here: )

Take it Away Mae!

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is looming just around the corner. I have no complaints though, because Christmas is my favorite holiday. Not only do I enjoy December 25th and Christmas Eve, but I love the entire month of December. It’s like one long holiday with all the merriment, festivities, and spirit of goodwill that leads up to that very special day. I’m a Christmas sap.

So it stands to reason I’d eventually get around to writing a Christmas story.

Those who know me also know there are two things (other than writing) I’m passionate about: folklore and cats. When it came time to dream up a Christmas story, I decided to weave both elements into the tale. The result is FOOD FOR POE, a short Christmas novella that is also a tale of sweet romance, twined with the paranormal, and even a wee smidgen of horror (just a smidge, I promise!).

Take a look:

When a blizzard strands Quinn Easterly at a handsome stranger's house on Christmas Eve, she doesn't realize her newly adopted cat, Poe, is the catalyst responsible for bringing them together.
Breck Lansing gave up on relationships after his wife, unable to cope with their daughter’s illness, left him. But the pretty blonde he rescues from a snowstorm has him rethinking his stance—especially when Quinn’s arrival coincides with a dramatic change in Sophie’s health.
Unfortunately, that change also attracts something only whispered about in folklore. Together, Quinn and Breck must defeat a sinister creature intent on claiming the ultimate payment.
Warning: A clever black cat, Christmas magic and paranormal trouble
I’m happy to announce that FOOD FOR POE has just released. YAY! In celebration of the holidays, you can grab a copy for $.99 at Amazon. If you don’t have a Kindle, you can download a FREE Kindle Reading App for your PC, MAC, iPad, iPhone, Android or tablet here. Cats and Christmas. What could be better? J
Merry Pre-Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  1. Debbie, I'm so sorry I didn't pop in yesterday to thank you for hosting me on your blog (and for that lovely introduction). Real life got away from me for a while, but I am trying to hammer it back into place, LOL. Thanks for helping me spread the news about "Poe" :)

    1. No apology necessary! Here of late I'm the queen of real life gets in the way of everything else! I read and loved the book! Now if "real life" will give me just a few minutes of peace and quiet, I'll post you a review!
