In the tradition of A Christmas Carol, for our turbulent times . . . .
My holiday fantasy CRISTOFORI'S DREAM is the November featured novel at the Goodreads Time Travel group. Read a free sample chapter and answer the related question below for a chance to win a free ebook in the format of your choice. It's all about a young teen (Chris) who, faced with a family tragedy, abandons his faith for science -- then finds himself in a Victorian fantasy world of his own making as he searches for a miracle cure for his dying younger sister (Janey).
There are consequences.
In the free sample chapter, Chris and Janey defy their father—who thinks the holidays are "nonsense"—by decorating their house for Christmas. To them, it's a much-anticipated family tradition, complete with secret treasures that take on significant roles in the Victorian Dream World, which Chris is about to enter. Even more, their Christmas tree is granted special powers: it has a glow that protects them from all harm. But because of the separate tragedies that befall Chris and Janey, the nature of the tree's light is at the heart of a great debate. Is it a holy light, or one of science?
So here's the discussion question: how do you see Christmas, the tree, and the nature of its light in your world?

In the cold, dark nights of Alaska, a hunter is stalking his prey. Once found, he takes them into the woods and skins them alive. The deaths are brutal and slow.
Aislinn Cain and the Serial Crimes Tracking Unit have just finished up another case when they get the call. Now they are packing their bags and heading for Alaska in March. Can the team overcome the harsh climate and hostile locals to catch their killer before another woman is skinned alive?
Writing a book about happiness is about the silliest thing to try to do. First, no one agrees on a definition. Second, there are about a million books on happiness. Third, no one in their right mind would admit to being unhappy, so all books on happiness are automatically suspect.
So, of course, I decided to ignore all that and write a book about happiness. Elusive Little Sucker, is a series of short stories about how I found real, satisfying happiness. Each story reveals a piece of the puzzle that ultimately ended in my discovery of happiness.
From my start in life as the eleventh of twelve children to the abrupt end to my career in my 50’s, I realized that I was learning about happiness all the way along. You will enjoy this book. You will laugh. You may cry. But I hope you will realize that the secret to happiness is within you just like it was within me. And sometimes it is the most embarrassing, silly or difficult experiences that teach you the most. Enjoy!

Old Habits by Maggie Katz
Amazon and Goodreads readers are giving Old Habits 5 stars!
From the cover: Leila Matapang wrestled with the poverty line for ten years, and then the letter arrived. Now she finds herself trapped in an extortion plot to save her own career orchestrated by the arrogant, yet oddly philanthropic P.I. Aleksander Vold. To make it out alive she will have to learn to exploit others, evade capture, and come to terms with her childhood psychosis. The further she probes, the more she wonders if there is any fiction left in the supernatural world she's discovered.
Old Habits is the first installment in the Insight Surveillance series and Maggie Katz's debut novel. The second novel in the series, The Horned God, is expected for launch in Spring 2014.
Available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and coming soon to more online retailers.

Transported out of his element into a realm of dangers and foes, Spider is aided by the insects and arachnids he befriends, but only he can see the Fairy Fly. Is she real or imagined? This whimsical novel about finding oneself while feeling small in a big world takes a step back and several steps downward to peep at humanity from below. At the same time, the story is an allegory of the human condition: life and death matters, war and peace, our everyday struggles on a tiny scale. Part humorous, part philosophical, at times poetic . . . it celebrates a love for animals, books and words. View the planet from a different angle as you take a spiderwalk through the door to adventure.
