Christmas is Coming!

Susan Sleeman here. Okay, don't panic. You still have plenty of time to get that Christmas shopping done, but I wanted to stop in to tell you that October means Love Inspired Christmas books will start releasing. I was fortunate enough this year to be able to write two of them. How fun it was to write about Christmas in the heat of summer. LOL

The first book, Holiday Defenders is compilation of stories with three amazing military heroes. I got to write this book with Debby Guisti and Jodie Bailey. I am so humbled to be included with them. This book is available for preorder and you can enter to win a copy at Goodreads. Click on the picture below to go to Amazon to preorder your copy.


The second story is the first in my new First Responders series and it releases in November. It to is available for preorder, too. Here are the details.


When armed robbers strike her bank, hostage negotiator Skyler Brennan’s life is on the line. Rescue comes from the last person she thought she could count on—the ex-boyfriend who chose his job over their relationship.
FBI agent Logan Hunter knows how much is resting on this case. The promotion of his dreams…and the safety of the woman he’s never been able to forget. But when an unexpected twist in the case pulls Logan in two separate directions, he’ll have to make an impossible choice. Will he manage to have it all by Christmas—a career and love—or will he lose them both?
So, my question of the day. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I confess I have bought two gifts already. I'm a planner. What can I say.

Hi Susan, My husband makes Christmas ornaments and we use that money for presents for our boys. So hopefully if he's able to sell them like he did last year we'll be good. :)
Merry Christmas ladies!!!! :):)

I am NOT an early shopper! I love to start reading Christmas stories in October so look forward to reading yours, Susan!
The covers are beautiful.

Hoping for Jennifer's dh to sell lots of ornaments!

Jennie, how cool that your hubby makes ornaments. What kind does he make? Jackie, I too love reading Christmas in October as that helps me shop early.

I'm a planner too, Susan! Since we have all adult children who live in different states (and one granddaughter!), I like to start early and enjoy the shopping! I usually start about now and just get things when I see them. Also, I tell my kids to send me lists of things they like so I have a generally idea of what is on their radar each year!

Can't wait for both your books this year! Of COURSE I will be reading them!!!!

How exciting to have not one, but two Christmas stories coming out, Susan. Congratulations x2!!

I'm excited to have my first story coming out this holiday season. "A Father's Gift" is part of Guideposts' A Cup of Christmas Cheer collection releasing next month. I wrote my Christmas story while those around were celebrating Valentine's Day.

Gwynly and I have decided not to exchange gifts any more. Since we have everything we want--and then some--we've decided to give each other experiences instead. Because my guy loves to cross-country ski, I'm planning a trip for him that involves plenty of snow.

Thanks Jackie!

My husband has a Facebook page where he posts the ornaments that he's making this year. Adam Tipton's Woodwork's.
