Get Your Blissemass Happening ...

'Tis the Season for holiday cheer. It's also, for some, one of the most stressful times of the year. So on this Blissemas stop, let's chat about ways to find your bliss!

5 Tips to De-Stress

Plan Ahead: Be honest. What makes you most stressed? Working last minute? Having to buy an important gift at the very end? Well, there still is time! Start knocking off those to-do items.

Enjoy: What's your favorite part of the season? Over Thanksgiving, I was disappointed not to have any hot apple cider, with a stick of cinnamon. First thing back home, I rectified, bought it and toasted with my family. 

Imbibe: If you need to unwind, pour a glass of your favorite bubbly, or try a new pepperminty concoction. Put some cheer into that holiday party. 

Relax: With a busy schedule, I really have to make time to read. Isn't that sad? Over Thanksgiving, I poured through Anne Rice's new novel Prince Lestat. It was quite enjoyable to delve back into the Vampire Chronicles after all these years. Over the winter break will be the ONLY two weeks I get off from teaching online all year. I'm planning ahead and stocking that Kindle.

Snog: Hee, hee. I had to give a snog-nog to those lovely U.K. hosts of Blissemas.

Here's a look at my holiday novella

The Vampire & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Christmas

Louisa Bacio

Vampires and werewolves don’t mix … or do they?

Before there were three, there were two. When a vampire swoops in to save Trevor from a rogue gang’s blood sport, the werewolf must fight his own inhibitions. The magic of New Orleans and the holiday season bring together these two unlikely lovers.

“In her first foray into the m/m genre, Ms. Bacio sets the pages ablaze in this sexy Christmas tale featuring two irresistible characters from her The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf series.  There’s nothing better on a cold winter’s night than cozying up with the vampire and the werewolf as they come together in this sizzling story.  This is my Christmas present to myself.”

Rebecca Leigh, author of Dirty Housewives


  1. I tend to hibernate - get home, get warm and comfy and make sure the kindle is fully charged.

  2. I usually read a new book or watch some funny movies since laughing kind of makes me forget about stressful things. Other than that, I try to eat any of my favorite foods.

  3. I like to destress around the holidays by going on long runs, cooking, and journaling. Thanks! - Isaac (email:
