Special Surprise – Free Short Story 12-22 to 12-26


Due to some problems with my neck, I have not been able to write out Holiday cards this year, so I am sharing this with my family and friends with my best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year. For those of you reading this who do not celebrate Christmas, please accept my good wishes as you enjoy your winter holiday with those you love and know that my heartfelt wish for peace and love for everyone are the same, no matter what label we put on this time of celebration.

And please accept my gift to you this season.

The Gift cover optimized 400 wide


Stacey will do anything to help her husband out of his depression this holiday season. Maybe a puppy will help, but The Gift  turns into so much more.

This short story will be free for Kindle from December 22 – 26 as my Christmas gift to family, friends, and fans. It was a gift to me from my muse, so I now gift it to readers, and I do hope you enjoy the story.

Then, as a gift back to me, I would love for you to take a moment to leave a quick review.

Kindle books can be read on any electronic device with the free Kindle app.

The book is listed on Free99Books and the folks there id a great job with the page. It is also featured on FindAFreeEbook, another terrific website for letting people know about your free books.

And here is a link to The Gift at Amazon.


I will be taking most of the next two weeks off from blogging, so I will see everyone in the New Year. Enjoy your Holidays and be well.

  1. You have painted beautiful pictures with words in your story that will last even after the final sentence is read. Puppies and kittens can heal many of our woes. Thank you for The Gift, Maryann.
