I'm excited to announce that my two Holiday Short Stories are now available on Amazon for just 99 cents each. They are both feel good romances that have been rummaging around in my head for a while. As a matter of fact, A SANTA FOR CHRISTMAS was posted on this blog last Christmas as a very short story and I loved it so much that I added more to it to finish out Merry and Sam's tale. While writing their Christmas Eve experience, Lilah and Jack popped into my head insisting to have their story told. So I did. And the fun part for me is they're both set in Texas.

Blurb for A Santa For Christmas: 

Merry Hernandez has lost both her father and her brother in the last year to unfortunate circumstances, and, due to a bad economy, stands to lose her business, Very Merry Events, as well.,. No one is spending unnecessarily for parties they can plan themselves. While that is bad, she regrets most not participating in the River Walk Christmas Pageant in San Antonio, Texas, where her father always played Santa and handed out toys to the children. Will the handsome stranger and his father be able to help her fulfill her dreams?

Sam Claus has journeyed to Texas with his father to help him make a young woman's Christmas wish come true. Due to the older man's illness, Sam doesn't see a way to help Merry Hernandez. Throughout their evening together on Christmas Eve, too many circumstances occur that he can't explain. Will Sam be able to turn the tide of events in her favor?

Will Sam and Merry realize their special connection and reach their Happily Ever After?
Blurb for Lilah By Midnight: 
Lilah Canfield's career as a country music performer is on the line. It's New Years Eve and she has one last chance to save her career with a performance in Forth Worth at Billy Bob's Texas. Bad thing is the worst snow storm in a century has hit the Texas Panhandle making passage on the highways dangerous at best and closed at worst. When her motor coach slides off the road into a snow bank outside her hometown of Mistletoe, Texas, will Lilah make her gig and save her career? Or will she give it all up for a second chance with her high school sweetheart and first love?
It's been two years since his wife passed away and Jack McCommas is ready to move forward for himself and his eight year old daughter. When he and a friend stop to help the folks in a stranded motor coach, he can't believe Lilah Canfield's standing in front of him and is literally shocked to realize the old spark is still there when they touch. If she chooses her career, will he be able to let her go a second time? Or will he try to convince her to stay in Mistletoe?
An early review for A Santa For Christmas from Deborah says, "I loved this Christmas story. It's a very sweet story of love, hope and of course happy ever after."
And for Lilah By Midnight, Deborah says, "Another great holiday story by Carra Copelin. This one is a New Years story, with a very sweet happy ending."
I hope you enjoy these Holiday Romances which can be found on Amazon at these links:
