Thanksgiving Savings

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming!

And I have a special announcement today to kick off Black Friday and the whole freezing Christmas shopping season!

But first I have to GIVE THANKS to some of the wonderful people who helped make my book what it is today:

Jessica Weil for her super cover design -- more than my go-to designer, she's like a first cousin once removed. My fabulous "show-me" editor Susan Mary Malone, and also Pamela Guerrieri for additional editorial support.

Angela Jorgensen for helping me write the back cover copy. My awesome beta readers Catie Seeboth, Lauren Gritschke, Matthew Rieken, and Jane and Susanne Thomas for all the fantastic early feedback. The entire Saturday Morning Breakfast Group, including my biggest cheerleader, Eve Honthaner at Legendary Pictures. My fans at Scriptwriters Network (Jim, Joe, Michael, Melessa, Kristy, Barbara, Travis, and anyone I forgot). Michelle Lyga and Shannon Bates, my lovely helpers at Comic-Con. My super-sharp proofreaders Stefanie Rembiszewski, Aleisha Gore, and Rachanee Kitchel.

And most importantly, my muse, for the inspiration.

Plus all the early reviewers and fans who have been so kind so far.

I can't thank you all enough!

And now, for a limited time, to show my appreciation, the Kindle edition of North Pole High: A Rebel Without a Claus is available for the low, low price of...

...just $2.99 (or free if you're an Amazon Prime member)! Who says Christmas and Thanksgiving can't get along?

From all of us at North Pole High, Merry Thanksgiving!!!! :D
