Fifteen Harper Impulse authors have come together to sit around the fire, though this time it's going to be a little different.
A competition was organised by Lori Connelly and Harper Impulse team to find the starting paragraph, and then us authors are going to continue this on, and create a short story.
Throughout August you'll get snippets of the stories, and then Harper Impulse will release the anthology in time for Christmas.
Fifteen authors, fifteen stories.
One shared, starting paragraph.
Read a taste of what's coming for Christmas
This is the winning paragraph which each short story will stem from:
Charlotte sat at the bus stop wondering whether she would make the naughty or nice list this year. Last year she had rescued a stray kitten and therefore considered herself most definitely ‘nice’. This year she had broken Daniels heart into a million tiny pieces, so ‘naughty’ seemed to be the only answer. There’d be no Santa Claus coming down her chimney anytime soon.

So keep an eye out in August for the stories! And there will be a Rafflecopter giveaway too!
