Cover Reveal: The Christmas Dilemma #readztule

We've got a treat for you today. I LOVE me some holiday romance, and here's a sneak peek at an upcoming release by Sarah Vance-Tompkins.

Now doesn't that look SWEET? Totally delish! Things will be heating up in The Christmas Dilemma!

The Christmas Dilemma 

Sweet Contemporary Romance

by Sarah Vance-Tompkins

She wants an unforgettable Christmas.

He wants to forget Christmas.

They’re together for the holidays.

Under one roof.

This should go well. 

Or not.


Release: 11.1.23


Skipping Christmas is easy. But it’s impossible to deny your heart…


Eli Adair is the first call whenever his family and friends need a hand. But this Christmas, he has no obligations, so he’s taking a break from the stress of big family celebrations. No presents under the tree. No stockings by the fireplace. No twinkling lights.


All he wants is to be home alone at Hillcrest House.


Travel nurse Audrey Elliott is returning to Christmas Tree Cove hoping for a big holiday celebration like the ones on her grandparents’ farm—all she has left of happier times before her mom’s condition lost those memories. Candy canes. Gingerbread houses. Holiday carols.

All Audrey wants is a place to call home for Christmas.


When a high school friend assures her there’s plenty of room at Hillcrest House, it seems like all her Christmas dreams are coming true until she discovers she’ll be living with Eli, the boy she’s never forgotten. Or the first kiss they shared.


Eli and Audrey are about to discover whether December is about reliving traditions—or making new ones.

5 Movies That Warn Against Time Travel & Giveaway

5 Movies time travel

You know better. 

The warnings are part of the fabric of popular culture. If you go back in time, there’s a chance you’ll destroy the future. Repercussions leave ripples in time. 


Yet, it happens time after time, whether by accident or on purpose. In my new release in the multi-author “The Nightshade Guild” series, the main characters know they shouldn't and yet when they really need help, it’s hard to ignore the call. 


What makes a character break the rules and risk the space-time continuum? 


Here are a few movies that touch upon the subject:


  1. Back to the Future 
  2. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
  3. Spider-Man: No Way Home
  4. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
  5. The Flash 


Enter to win: Swag pack for “Time After Time.”

Includes: custom-made wine charm, hologram sticker, star worry rock, Louisa Bacio and Chapstick, “It’s Better Wet” button. 


Tell me: What other “rules” are there to time travel? What movies do you suggest that touch upon the subject? 


Rules: US Shipping. Winner will be chosen on Friday, Aug. 4, 9 p.m. PST. 


Time After Time


By Louisa Bacio


What’s old is new and what’s new is old. 

Time After Time Cover


After a good deed goes wrong, Serena and Peder tumble through time, landing in Hollywood during an ’80s musical revolution. 


The paranormal duo navigates the concrete waters of the past to find a way back to the future. Without the aid of modern technology, other members of The Nightshade Guild, or their dwindling energy sources, they must rely upon each other.


Maybe other “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” but Serena wants to get back home with her love.
