Hey guys! I hope that everyone has a wonderfully magical holiday season full of laughter and love...and
maybe some liquor. This year was truly amazing, and I can't wait to see what 2018 has in store.
Remember through this magical season that love makes anything possible.
From my family to yours, may your home be filled with joy and light.
It's been a tough year. So much has happened and the world has changed, for the worse and for the better.
One thing will always stay true though. The love I have as an author for my readers, supporters,
fellow writers, and publishers. The passion I have for writing stories.
The festive season is upon us and I wish you all the best for your celebrations and for
the new year ahead. May you and your families all stay safe and well,
and let's look forward to 2018 with positivity and hope.

Happy Holidays to all my fellow authors and amazing readers! Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful,

Thank you for the love and support throughout 2017.

Happy Holidays from sunny, not-so-warm Charleston, South Carolina. I hope that you have a very happy,
healthy and safe holiday; whether you travel or stay home. From my family to yours, we wish you a warm
and joyful holiday filled with love and laughter. We would also like to send a special message to all of
the troops stationed abroad, thank you for your service, loyalty and dedication.
Lots of Love,
I confess that I don’t really have the holiday spirit as much as many people. I’m more of a Halloween girl, myself.
So it was a huge challenge when Boroughs asked me to do a holiday romance. Thankfully, my mom was a
Christmas nut, so she inspired the heroine in Metal and Mistletoe.
Dezra, a death metal singer, loves Christmas so much that her treat to herself when she gets out of rehab for her
alcoholism is a solo vacation to Yellowstone, where she can have a Christmas tree, a holiday feast, and enjoy a
winter wonderland. She is shocked when Curtis, a thrash metal guitarist who she’d met in rehab, is staying in
one of the cabins at the resort. Curt is a humbug about Christmas and came to the cabins to avoid his family.
Dezra is determined to get him into the holiday spirit.
Metal and Mistletoe was a fun book to write and got me into the spirit as well.
I’m putting up my tree this week and I have some horror movie themed decorations to hang on it. Then I plan to
curl up by the fire and read all month so I can get inspiration for my next Hearts of Metal book.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah,
Whatever you celebrate at this time of year, may your days be filled with joy and your bookshelves lined with
never-ending books and happily-ever-afters. Here's wishing you a storybook season of cheer!

Hello, and Merry Christmas to all readers and my family at Boroughs Publishing. I’ve been busy getting ready
for the season, and I’ve also been busy making music, playing Christmas concerts at street fairs, libraries,
nursing homes and such. Christmas Day will be quiet - just Charles, me and the pups,
but we expect family for after-Christmas and New Year’s fun.
Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best to you and yours in 2018,
Sending warm holiday greetings this wintry season, and wishing you and your family
comfort, joy, and hope this Christmas.

Happy Festive Season
The Love Sabrists would like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. Hailing from Australia, where
it’s summer, our Christmases tend to be hot. Christmas Day is usually spent outside, at the beach or
in the pool. So, wherever you are, however you celebrate this holiday season, we hope you enjoy this magical
time of year surrounded by loved ones. We wish you peace, happiness, and a little bit of romance,
as well as happy reading for 2018. Keep an eye out for our Love Sabre anthology out February 2018.

May your holidays be merry and your New Year be bright. Here's to reading books all day and all night.

Brrrr...it’s chilly in my neck of the woods in Cleveland, Ohio. It’s that time of year when I like to snuggle under a
warm blanket with a cup of cinnamon tea in one hand and my favorite romance in the other
(or watch my favorite Hallmark Christmas movie). I hope you have plenty of reading and relaxing time.
Happy Holidays, my festive readers!
At this time of year, I know we're all busy with parties, planning, presents, and preparations. (Ha, alliteration!)
Don't forget to make time for yourself. You need to replenish your reserves for everything that happens in this
season, so take a break, escape, relax; and what better way to rejuvenate than to disappear into the pages of a book.
My book, Mystic, will lead you on a merry cross-country chase with adventure, a few chuckles, suspense, and, of
course, romance. Although Mystic is not a Christmas story, it should leave you with a smile or two. Mystic comes
out December 19, and until then you can count down the days with me by following my Mystic Advent Calendar
on Facebook (www.facebook.com/GabiStevensfans) or Twitter (@GabiStevens).
One peek into the book every day until its release.
Until then, Merry Everything, and may all your days be filled with wonder, delight, and happiness.
Hope this holiday season there's a Christmas party hop, mistletoe, and some
rockin' around the Christmas tree fun for you.

Everyone at Boroughs Wishes All of You a Joyous Holiday Season
