So fast forward and my #GrandmaProject ended up not far from where Genie lives. We had lunch, were chatting, and wondered why we had never done a writing project together.
This was in March. Christmas seemed really far away (and we were both busy), so we kicked the collaboration can to that holiday. And started brainstorming what elements the stories would share to tie the duo together. We came up with:
- A present or presents (because it’s Christmas!)
Even though we started in the same place, our stories ended up in different places, which for me, doubles the fun. And this reviewer liked it, too:
“Other than Christmas, there are four things that that these books have in common. The first is that both are set in Wyoming. In the winter. Despite the fact that both these authors claim residence in warmer climates, their descriptions of Wyoming weather in December had me feeling the chill as I was reading. I suppose it is possible that the chill actually came from the Iowa weather blowing outside my door. Doesn’t matter. I was feeling it.
Both books have aliens. Aliens that are visiting Earth and have made contact. Though I think the aliens are trying to minimize any communication with the natives. At least for now.
An unusual gift is the third commonality. I really can’t tell you more. Except to say they are the gifts are miraculous!” Amazon Reviewer
