A Gigolo for Christmas


Surprise! I bet you didn't expect another new book so soon after The Siege of Kwennjurat was released. I'll bet a lot of my friends are also very surprised that I would release a book with the word "Gigolo" in the title, too.

I've been working quietly yet frantically on this in the background, hoping to have it ready before Thanksgiving, because it would be pretty stupid to publish a Christmas story at any other time of the year. If I hadn't made the deadline, the poor thing would have had to wait a whole year to be published, and I didn't want that to  happen. This is a lot of why I've spent most of November being very, very behind on my NaNoWriMo word count.

A Gigolo for Christmas is a very sweet little romance novella being offered, at least for now, as a Kindle-only ebook. Here's what the back cover would say, if ebooks had back covers:


Shelia Everett couldn’t have imagined a worse company Christmas party. By the end of the evening she was unemployed and homeless. Fortunately her boss’ date, Anders Adamson was willing to help her repair the damage. He even offered to help her get a job at his escort service.
 
What’s a good girl to do when she discovers she’s fallen in love with a gigolo?
 
I'm posting this on my blog on the day before Thanksgiving, so that you know about it, but aren't bothered by it while you're spending time with your family tomorrow. Or maybe you want to download it today, and read it on that long car drive home from Grandma's place after Thanksgiving dinner.

You can buy A Gigolo for Christmas here, or borrow it if you're an Amazon Select member.

P. S. Amazon seems to be having a problem getting the cover image up on their site, but be patient and don't let the apparent lack of cover deter you from purchasing - I'm working on the problem as we speak.  ~AMJ

P.P.S. Amazon got whatever the problem was taken care of, and the cover is up now. Hooray!  ~AMJ
