I thanked every blogger! Only right since they put in their time to read and check out my novella. Awesome bloggers they are. Follow them!

I recommend Shannon for your book tours needs!

A thank you to Kelli! She was in charge of a winter get together for authors and readers and I met awesome authors and readers thanks to her on Facebook. Look at the banner she created! Kelli runs – Totally Talented Promotions. An awesome person and I can’t wait for the event in February. Considering the fact that my knowledge of Facebook is limited, having her help promote my novella was fantastic! I recommend her for your Facebook promotions!

The story happens someplace unnamed close to Chicago, Illinois. Why it is left unnamed? Easy. Because, a story like this can happen anywhere…well as long as there’s snow. ^_^

I live in California, but I have friends living in Chicago. Over the years, we had road trips and or Amtrak trips to see them. I have never been there during winter, only summer, but I really liked my experiences there. Our friends showed us many places and actually one of my first malls in United States was in Illinois.

My life in United States started there, for the first two weeks, we lived with our friends until we moved to California. Well, my father left ahead to get settled while we enjoyed the greenery and a big trampoline at their house. So, Chicago will always be close to my heart.

One of my favorite places is Millennium Park. Check it out here: https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/millennium_park.html

Have you been to Illinois? Where did you visit?

novella blurb

Follow the Snowflakes: A Christmas Novella (Release Date: December 15, 2017)

At 28, it’s bad to be single. After four years of relationship struggles, Cat is ready to try anything.

That’s when her friend tells her about her class’ Dear Santa letters. One little boy asked for a new mommy, and she suggests Cat meets the kid’s dad, just to see where things go. Cat figures it can’t hurt…until she meets a stranger in the midst of a car accident. The man is handsome with a sad look in his eyes. He still wears a wedding band and she’s not sure his heart’s available, even if he makes her heart race. But, maybe he’s a widower? Cat wonders if she should resign herself to being an old maid, or whether she could possibly be the answer to a little boy’s Christmas wish, unless there’s a third option – a future with the stranger.

about the author

ANGELINA KERNER is a self-published author of paranormal and lighthearted romance. She’s the wife of a photographer/physicist, and the mother of a cute little toddler, but she’s also been a dancer, a psychologist, an anthropologist, a geographer, a dreamer, and an adventurer. She does her best writing while being bothered by her cats, taking care of her son, in dressing rooms while waiting for family to try on clothing, and at home in sunny California. Angelina loves to play goddess-dragon matchmaker, transporting readers to a place where young goddesses have lovable flaws, the Fates plan to dethrone, the universe is endless and untamed, and dragons roam free! She also loves to write carefree romance where one can finish reading with a smile.

My main character Catherine (Cat) works as a manager at a bank. She deals with customer relations and event planning. Since the story starts on December 16th, 2017, she’s all about event planning and not customer relations.

Anyway, I’m getting off topic. When one walks into a branch (at least in California), it’s all about the look. The tellers, the bankers, the managers are dressed in suits…you can forget to see casual. But, have you noticed the shoes? I believe that shoes is a way for the workers to speak their individuality and I like it… though Cat doesn’t understand that and hates high heels!

Here’s a pair that I would love to have:

They don’t have it in my size!!! But I so would love that pair. I wouldn’t be able to wear them to work!

What is your dream pair? Would be able to wear it to your workplace?

I just love the holidays and one of my favorite holiday drinks is not eggnog, it’s Glintwein. It’s a mulled wine drink for adults. The idea goes back all the way to ancient Rome!

Glintwein is a Russian name for it, and other cultures call it Glühwein (Germany), Glögg, gløgg, glögi (Nordic countries), vinho quente (Brazil), greyano vino (Bulgaria), and karštas vynas (Lithuania) to name a few.

Here’s a German/Australian recipe:

Have you ever tried mulled wine? What did you think? What’s your favorite holiday drink?
