For a holiday novella, Holiday Sparks by Shannon Stacey, ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) and for a novel, not a holiday one, I can re-read Act Like It by Lucy Parker any time, any place. And I’m embarrassed to say, my own writing works on me, and I’ve re-read my own novella a few times ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) when I needed something soothing. But then, I wrote my own catnip on purpose so I’m glad it worked! SORRY THAT WAS THREE so feel free to leave off my own recommendation of myself! A | BN | K | AB Amanda: I HATE…
