Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Well, if I thought November was busy…here comes December, whipping by in a flash!

I just released my newest novella, Intimacy, and most exciting of all, it’s now available in both e-book and paperback form!

My first republished Christmas short story, A Christmas Homecoming, is currently #1 on the LGBT short reads list. I couldn’t be prouder.

My second republished short story, Grandma’s Christmas Gift, is swiftly climbing the charts, as well.

I am so glad for the opportunity to share these with you all.

I hope you all have a very wonderful and peaceful holiday season.

Many hugs,

One Busy November!

This is a busy month in the Folger household!

I have just published my Christmas short story, A Christmas Homecoming. This was previously published in Lesbian Yuletide Love Stories, but I am re-releasing these stories slowly as stand-alones.

My next novella, tentatively titled, “Intimacy,” is currently being edited, and will be published the beginning of December, along with my next stand-alone Christmas short story, Grandma’s Christmas Gift.

Meanwhile, I am hard at work, writing another novella to be published early next year!

I have so enjoyed watching the beautiful trees with their leaves changing. Now the winds have pulled most of the trees bare. I love the changing of the seasons!

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

A Christmas Story Stand-Alone #1

My short story, A Christmas Homecoming, is ready for publishing around the 1st of November. I have already published this one, and others, in Lesbian Yuletide Love Stories, but I am attempting to give each story more exposure by publishing them individually.

I will publish one in November and one in December for the next three winters.

I am really enjoying the cool weather…the crispness in the air, the scent of smoke…I will break out the hot chocolate before long, but right now I am still awaiting the first freeze.

November will bring new and welcomed tasks. I now have 20 novellas and three new short stories published. I have one more novella to write this year, which will bring my total of novellas waiting to be edited and published to 12.

Incidentally, you can find me on both Facebook and Twitter. Leave me a message, and I will respond.

Have a lovely end of October,

Judy

A Christmas Homecoming

I am re-releasing each of my Christmas-themed short stories individually, beginning with next month. All six were originally published in Lesbian Yuletide Love Stories: six from me, and six from Debra Stang.

So, in November I will release the individually published short story, A Christmas Homecoming, followed by another one in December. Next year, I will release two in the same time period, and then the following year I will release the last two.

A Christmas Homecoming, as you can deduce from the title, is a heartwarming story about reunions and making the best of things.

I love this time of year, with the beautiful memories it evokes, and the chill in the air that hints at many cups of hot chocolate and comfortable conversations.

Enjoy the rest of October.

Welcome The Passionate Librarian

My newest novella, “The Passionate Librarian,” was published today. As it happens, this is my 20th published novella, so I am especially excited about this one.

Jodi, who is between jobs, finds herself hanging out at the library most days. To her delight, she is befriended by Emily, the luscious librarian.

This story takes many turns, and I am sure you will enjoy every one of them.

Finally, it is fall, my favorite time of year. Soon, the hot chocolate and truly cool weather will be upon us. I am thankful that football season is here, again! Have a wonderful autumn as the leaves begin to change.

The Passionate Librarian

My next book will be published around the 1st of October, and titled The Passionate Librarian.

This is a book I wrote a few years ago, and it has recently been updated for publishing. It’s a fun story my regular readers will enjoy.

I am so glad to finally get some of my older books published. Somehow my love for writing eventually overtook my editor’s ability to keep up!

On the subject of reviews: please do leave reviews for the author of any books you read. Feedback is so difficult to get, and we all enjoy the comments readers leave.

Fall is nearly here. I love this season, when the air turns cooler and the colors change.

Enjoy reading,

Judy

How Much Can We Ask

My newest short short story, “How Much Can We Ask,” will be published around September 1st.

This is my first time publishing such a violent tale, but I believe this story about LGBT civil rights is an important one, and all too frequently we allow the violence of today to numb us to the point that significant messages are lost in the chaos.

I hope you do enjoy this story, despite its tragic ending and necessary violence to convey the theme.

This fall I will publish a novella featuring the feel-good love theme my regular readers always anticipate and enjoy.

Hope you all are enjoying these last few days of summer.
