GENRE: Contemporary pagan holiday romance


 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

First love is hard to forget, and even harder to ignore…

 

Evergreen Pendre wasn’t planning on going home for Yule. But when her Mom tells her the old coven is coming for a visit, she wants to see everyone. Well, almost everyone.

 

After four and a half years, Sawyer Collins finally has a chance to reconnect with his first love, Eeva Pendre. He might have been too shy to tell her how he felt before, but he’s changed. And he’s determined not to let her slip away this time.

 

As the coven prepares for Yule, they are reminded that not everyone has the holiday spirit in this contemporary Pagan holiday romance.

Excerpt Two:

 

The pair approached the tree, and Sawyer repeated the process of communing with the plant. But as he reached up and cut one of the thin branches, some of the snow from the nearby branches shook off and fell onto Eeva’s head.

 

“Oh! That’s cold,” Eeva complained, wiggling to get the snow off her.

 

Sawyer laughed at the sight. “Well, why did you stand under where I was cutting then? You deserve it,” he teased.

 

“I deserve it, eh?” Eeva asked, grinning. She placed the basket on the ground and gathered a handful of snow. “Then, I guess you deserve this!” She threw the snow into his face.

 

“Oh, it’s on now,” he said, shaking his head, trying to get the snow out from the inside of his scarf.

 

Eeva laughed and threw another snowball.

 

The battle raged on. They each got some good shots in. Eeva had surprisingly good aim for someone who couldn’t see well. But Sawyer made sure to make some noise to indicate his position. It wouldn’t be fair otherwise.

 

They ran up and down the path, laughter and squeals dampened by the surrounding trees. Finally, they lay on their backs beside each other on the ground, breathless and covered in snow.

 

“Truce?” Sawyer asked, turning his head toward her.

 

She turned her head and met his eyes. She sat up, gathered a giant pile of snow between her hands, and dumped it right onto his face.

 

“Yeah,” she giggled. “Truce.” She collapsed back down beside him.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

 


D. Lieber is an urban fantasy author with a wanderlust that would make a butterfly envious. When she isn’t planning her next physical adventure, she’s recklessly jumping from one fictional world to another. Her love of reading led her to earn a Bachelor’s in English from Wright State University.

 

Beyond her skeptic and slightly pessimistic mind, Lieber wants to believe. She has been many places—from Canada to England, France to Italy, Germany to Russia—believing that a better world comes from putting a face on “other.” She is a romantic idealist at heart, always fighting to keep her feet on the ground and her head in the clouds.

 

Lieber lives in Wisconsin with her husband (John) and cats (Yin and Nox).

Interview with D. Lieber

1. Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reins of the story?

I barely have any control over my characters’ shenanigans. They are rowdy…but we have fun together.


2. Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.

A must read? I guess that depends on what you like. But if you want to better understand how (some) modern Pagans celebrate Yule (the winter solstice, our winter holiday), or if you are curious about what it’s like to live your life as someone who is visually impaired, then you’re definitely going to want to read this book. If you like cozy holiday romances that give you the warm fuzzies, this book is for you!


3. Have you written any other books that are not published?

Yes, but they are all forthcoming. The next book readers will see is my dieselpunk sci-fi adventure called The Treason of Robyn Hood. It will be out March 2021.


4. Pen or type writer or computer?

I used to do pen and paper, but then I discovered Scrivener. It changed my writing process for sure. I don’t have a typewriter, but my keyboard is mechanical, so it makes a very satisfying clicking sounds when I type.


5. Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Thank you for your continued support, and happy holidays!
