Writing a novel is no easy feat, so, when someone I know does just that, I want to help share the news. Please join me in congratulating Shannon Lawrence on her newest book, “Happy Guoulidays”, a wild collection of short stories.
The holidays can be a stressful time, as we all know, but I’m hoping to lighten up this winter season with a little holiday horror.
Maybe “lighten up” isn’t the right term.
The first story begins the winter holidays with Thanksgiving, with stories representing Christmas, Hanukah, Hogmanay (the New Year), Yule, Groundhog Day, and, finally, Valentine’s Day. From serious horror to tongue-in-cheek. Read them all at once or save them for their holidays. Or both!
Release day is November 20, which also happens to be my birthday! Just in time for Thanksgiving week. You can pre-order the Kindle version, with other versions, including paperback, available on release day.
Family time can lead to murder and mayhem, especially during the holidays. A turkey with a tale to tell, elves under attack, sorority sisters putting on a killer party, a woman’s desperation to save her family, and a stranger ringing in the New Year. These and other tales of woe await you beneath the mistletoe.

A fan of all things fantastical and frightening, Shannon Lawrence writes in
her dungeon when her minions allow, often accompanied by her familiars.
She writes primarily horror and fantasy. Her stories can be found in several
anthologies and magazines, and her collections, Blue Sludge Blues & Other Abominations and Bruised Souls & Other Torments, are available in stores.
You can also find her as a co-host of the podcast “Mysteries, Monsters, & Mayhem.”
When she’s not writing, Shannon’s hiking through the wilds of Colorado and photographing her magnificent surroundings. Though she often misses the Oregon coast, the majestic and rugged Rockies are a sight she could never part with. Besides, in Colorado there’s always a place to hide a body or birth a monster. What more could she ask for?
