In the last month or so, readers have said a lot of very kind things about A Night to Surrender. Several have told me they’re eager for Colin and Minerva’s story in A Week to be Wicked, releasing March 27, 2012.

And some have even been so kind as to say, “I can’t believe we have to wait another six months to revisit Spindle Cove!”

So it’s with great joy that I say to all you wonderful readers today:

You don’t!

You don’t even have to wait six weeks!

You see, I just couldn’t wait six months to revisit Spindle Cove, either. So I am thrilled to announce that Once Upon a Winter’s Eve, a Spindle Cove Christmas novella, will be releasing digitally from Samhain Publishing on November 15, 2011. Barely a month away!

I’m just so excited. I hope to have a cover and official blurb to share very soon. But in the meantime, just know that it’s a story packed with romance, passion, and intrigue. There’s a Christmas ball! There are ladies with weapons! It’s Spindle Cove, through and through. I’m so excited for you to read it, and I’m glad you’ll be able to do so very soon. 🙂

Edited to Add:
Please don’t feel left out if you don’t own a Kindle, Nook, or other e-reader! One of the reasons I’m glad to be publishing with Samhain is that they make their books available in a wide variety of formats, including PDF and html. If you can read this web page, you can read the novella – I promise! And I’ll have more specific information when it comes out.

    Yay – congratulations! That’s such a great move to get a Christmas novella out (although I can’t imagine adding novellas on top of the books you’re already writing). Can’t wait to read it!

    Squeeee! Doing the happy dance 😀

    I loved A Night to Surrender and this will make the wait for A Week to be Wicked seem a little shorter.

    I love Christmas stories too so it’s all good.

    Thanks Tessa.
