Cover reveal time! I’m thrilled to share the new cover art for my December 3rd release, Sci-Fi holiday novella, HOW THE GLITCH SAVED CHRISTMAS, coming from Carina Press!

This novella is part of Carina Press's December Anthology, A GALACTIC HOLIDAY (artwork to come).  I CAN'T WAIT!!! *spazzes*


Since I don’t yet have an OFFICIAL back cover blurb to share, here’s the one I wrote for my art fact sheet:

Detective REINA VEDETTE’S career in the Chicago PD has plummeted after disobeying a directive to have cybernetic body modifications—or bod-mods—implanted. Her rival EDISON WICKE, on the other hand, was the first to get bod-mods.  Because of this, she would like nothing better than to avoid Edison, but when a strange Grinch-in-reverse case appears, the two must work together to solve this mystery. 

Level five detective EDISON WICKE knows quality when he sees it, and all he can see is Reina.  The biggest mystery in his mind isn’t the Grinch-in-reverse case, but whether or not Reina will accept that he's a hot-blooded man and not some walking appliance.  Ultimately, as they close in on a Christmas-loving perp that can't possibly exist, Edison at last convinces Reina life doesn't have just one narrow-minded definition, and the greatest miracle of all is that love can be found in the most unlikely of places.


I’m so proud of this novella, and it’s the just the beginning of Reina’s and Edison’s story.  In the next year I have plans to plunge these two into the most agonizing sort of save-the-world-at-all-cost trouble (MWAHAHAHAHA!), but that’ll make their final HEA all the sweeter.  It's going to be an amazing year! :D


  1. Woo hoo! Love the cover and the unoffcial blurb. Can't wait to read it, Stacy.

  2. Sounds like an awesome story. Great cover! Congrats! :)

  3. Thanks, Donna. Would you believe I was worried no one would "get" that title? :p

    Anna, my sci-fi antho sister! Can't wait to read yours and Sasha's as well. It's all so exciting! *happy dance*

    Thank you kindly, Jessica -- it's good to "meet" you! :D
