After completing my first round of Grownup Advent in 2014, I was inspired to write a Christmas novellas inspired by the idea. No, I didn’t meet a super dishy man to experience the season with me, but some of my own Grownup Advent activities did make an appearance in the story along with some new fun prompts.
About Making Christmas
While settling into a new career in a new community, Ivy is determined not to let the holiday season pass her by. Enter the grownup advent calendar: twenty-four days of festivities to celebrate Christmas. What begins as a bit of fun turns into a mission to spread cheer when she meets Everett. After learning about his bad Christmas attitude, she invites him to join her quest. Despite his initial reservations, Everett quickly gets caught up in the spirit of the calendar. But when new feelings surface and are impossible to ignore, Everett’s inner curmudgeon threatens to put a damper on the whole experience.
