Sleigh Writer Dani Stone's Holiday Recipe
***I WAS SUPPOSED TO CONTRIBUTE A STORY TO MY FRIEND MALENA LOTT’S CHRISTMAS ANTHOLOGY SLEIGH RIDE, BUT GOT A LITTLE SWAMPED, SO UNFORTUNATELY HAD TO DROP OUT. BUT I DEFINITELY WANT TO BE SURE I LET YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL HOLIDAY COLLECTION OF STORIES, JUST OUT. READ ON FOR MORE!
Get ready for the ultimate sleigh ride with Buzz Books. SLEIGH RIDE is a wintry mix of short stories with one common theme: each story includes a sleigh ride. The book will include seven short stories and a portion of the proceeds will benefit a national domestic abuse prevention fund via Alpha Chi Omega foundation. Women helping women is one of our highest endeavors, and we are extremely excited about the project. The book is now available in trade paperback and ebook (Kindle and nook). We’re also hosting two big contests over at our www.buzzbooksusa.com to celebrate the launch.
At the back of the book, some of our authors shared their favorite holiday recipes. Dani Stone, “No Place Like Home,” shares hers below.
