Christmas Traditions and Trends

Merry Christmas, reader-friends!

We're two days away, and I'm feeling pretty good. I've got the shopping done, the ladies are (for now) contented... almost all the gifts are wrapped.

One of my favorite holiday traditions involves books!

Ever since my two daughters were little, we've ended the day with a storybook. When they were really small it was the picture books like Goodnight Moon or What Will Fat Cat Sit On?

Or our favorite, Dogzilla.

Now that they're older, we're reading chapters from novels. We started with Harry Potter, then we moved to the Warrior Cats series, and now the girls are reading The Chronicals of Prydian with my husband...

In the early years, however, we accumulated more than 30 gorgeous Christmas picture books. So our family tradition takes us back to the old days of Olive the Other Reindeer, Eloise at Christmastime, Angelina Ballerina, and The Jolly Christmas Postman (among many others).

It's the one thing we do consistently every year, and it really gets us in the spirit.

What about you guys? Any Christmas traditions you care to share?

On Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
On the "Trends" front, one you might've noticed in books is The Boxed Set.

I've even put my own for "Truth" companions together in one ebook "Boxed Set" you can get at a discount.

New Book Release! Echoes in the Glass now available on Kindle

Now available on Amazon US or Amazon Worldwide!

You've heard about it. Now you can have it. Echoes in the Glass is Cheri Lasota's follow-up to her Cygnus Award-winning debut, Artemis Rising. A genre-bending young adult novel, Echoes in the Glass, is a little mystery, romance, and ghost story all wrapped up in one.

Echoes in the Glass Cover
"This is an OMG, blew me out of the water (pun intended) kind of book. I am only on page 178 out of 274... And I seriously paused and waited a few minutes before picking up my jaw off the floor. This book... It's amazing so far, and I can't wait to finish it."
—Amanda Kiekbusch
The grand symbol of the story, the magnificent Cape Sorrow Lighthouse on the Oregon Coast, sets the backdrop for a story of redemption for Finnian Bell, a boy who commits a terrible crime. Can he rebuild his life as he restores the lighthouse to its former glory?

We also follow Carina Jane's terrifying experiences at Cape Sorrow back in 1935, during the lighthouse's heyday. The lighthouse harbors shocking secrets that have far-reaching consequences for both Finnian and Carina. Will they learn the truth too late?

The Inception of a Novel

A couple of years ago, my agent at the time asked me to come up with a new idea for a novel within a two-day timeframe. Given that the previous project (that she was pitching to the big houses at the time) took me years to fully develop, I thought this an impossible task.

But a tiny idea popped in my head at some point on Day One of the Impossible Task. I was celebrating a milestone in my writing career at the time, and when I celebrate, I go to Cannon Beach, Oregon, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Years before, I had dreamt up the idea of a short story involving a famous lighthouse off the coast, but I never got around to writing it. I also had the skeleton plot planned out of a sequel to my debut novel, Artemis Rising, half-done and wallowing in no man's land. I brainstormed like mad as I stared off at Tillamook Head Lighthouse a mile out to sea from Cannon Beach, Oregon.

And then it hit me, as story ideas often do. Rather, those two story ideas hit each other and exploded in my mind. So the basic story came together literally over the course of the day as I wrote down the ideas at a fever pitch. Echoes in the Glass, my second novel, was born that day.

Today, years later, I come full circle to a story I've been working on for about three years. My world changed over the course of those years. I fell so ill I had to take a year off my life to recover, and I'm still recovering. I met, fell in love with, and married my husband. I published my debut novel--a feat I had dreamed of since I was eight years old (but never thought possible). Mainly, I spent a lot of time surviving. But I'm still here and this second novel is another dream that I didn't think would come true. But in December, this one will be released, and I'll move on to writing my first trilogy. You just never know how it's all going to shake out, do you?

I've moved heaven and earth to make it this far. And I'm grateful I survived, that I found love, that I found readers who love reading my writing as much as I love writing for them. I'm grateful for so many things, it's hard to put into words, but I will try.

Thank you to Stephen for giving me time and space to write. It's hard, I know.

Thank you Lyndsey Shaw, Charity Heller, Auburn Seal, Jaymi Elford, Nancy Kelley, Jessica Samuelson, Andy Bunch, Jeff Blackmer and Adam Copeland for being my local support. I treasure your friendships and advice.

Thank you to the Indelibles, Historical Fiction Authors Cooperative, and Pacific Northwest YA Authors groups for your amazing support and advice. I'm in awe of all of you. Thank you especially to Alice Lynn, M. Louisa Locke, and Megg Jensen for your unwavering support, advice, and editing eyeballs!

Thank you to my dear parents for reading. You know what that means and how grateful I am.

The Story

Finnian bears the scar of an unspeakable crime. Tiria hides the pain of a terrible betrayal. When all their secrets are laid bare, will the truth rip them apart or forever silence the echoes of the past?

Seventeen-year-old Finnian Bell has been on the run for years, but he finally has a chance to rebuild his life while restoring an abandoned lighthouse on the Oregon Coast.

Tiria Lucas, the lightkeeper’s daughter, is still reeling from the pain of an event that has shattered her innocence. Fear and bitterness have turned her heart from Finnian, but he is determined not to let her go.

The lighthouse harbors dark secrets of its own…

When Finnian and Tiria uncover the story of two teens hidden in the tower back in 1935, they discover a shocking connection that bridges time and death.

Echoes in the Glass is for readers who loved Saundra Mitchell’s The Vespertine, Libba Bray’s Diviners, and Jennifer Donnelly’s A Northern Light.

Regret is a formidable foe.

Eden Kelley is the primary caregiver for her mother who's in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's disease, and she's only twenty-four. Not what she planned to do when she left her husband for a new start with her four-year-old daughter in tow. She'd hoped for free babysitting, but instead she found a mystery. The discovery of an erroneous marriage document leads to more questions, and unfortunately Eden can't ask her mother for answers because she doesn't remember.

Her mother's antics drive her crazy, but Eden's determined to make the best of it. That includes finding the exciting romantic adventure she'd dreamed about. But when trouble knocks, it's her husband Cade who arrives to help. It's awkward and tense. And Eden comes to one sure conclusion: leaving her handsome, caring husband was a huge mistake.

Her parents had a second chance at love? Would she and Cade get one, too?
