Months ago, I announced an open call for our 2013 holiday anthologies. Each year, the holiday collections are a special project for me–very much a labor of love and something I adore doing–and my goal is always to bring together both returning Carina Press authors and new Carina Press authors who have written holiday novellas that evoke the spirit of the winter holidays, provide a bit of respite from the stress of the holidays, delivery a quality romance and generally give that happy book sigh. After reading hundreds of fantastic submissions, and making a lot of tough decisions, I’ve chosen 12 novellas that I think have all of those qualities and that readers will enjoy not just during the holiday season, but year round.
I’m pleased to announce that these 12 novellas (titles subject to change) will be published both together, in 4 collections, and separately in November and December 2013.

Menage on 34th Street by Elise Logan and Emily Ryan-Davis (Welcome to Carina Press, Elise and Emily!)
