Holiday 2016 Edition
Happy Holidays!

Yes, I may be a week early, but the holidays are in full swing in my house. In fact, I bought my first can of cranberry sauce this afternoon. I don't know WHY I love the store bought kind, but I do. Actually I like homemade, store bought, anything with the word cranberry in it.
But holidays aren't always exactly as we dream they will be. Sometimes holidays are hard and leave us feeling a little sad. It's then we need to be reminded that God is good all the time, and we know that "all things work together for the good of those who love him." If you're struggling this holiday season, ask someone to pray for you, and remember--everyone struggles at one point or another.

This holiday season I am giving myself a PASS. We'll still be thankful on November 24th, but we won't plan a huge meal or decorate the house. We'll still celebrate the birth of our Lord on December 25th, but I'm not worrying about trees or presents or lavish meals. I'm allowing myself to rest. My prayer for you is that you will find the rest and the level of celebration that you need.

Of course we still have sales, a holiday contest, and more to share with you. So kick off your shoes, grab your favorite mug full of your favorite beverage, and enjoy my holiday newsletter. 



Call for 2016 Street Team

I am so excited to announce that we are once again taking applications for our street team. Each year my assistant and I choose a dozen or so members to help us promote Christian fiction. You'll receive free copies of my 2017 releases (which will be 2 Christian dystopian novels and 2 Amish cozy mystery novels). In return, you provide an honest review, post it to various sites, and engage with our special Facebook page. 

I depend so much on this group of readers who encourage and pray for me. Every year that I've done this, I've been blessed with delightful Christian women who love to read. 
If you're interested in serving on our 2017 Street Team, fill out this survey. Members will be chosen and notified in December and begin their twelve month term on January 1. If you know anyone who would be interested in joining our team, please feel free to forward this email to them.

Holiday Contest

I want to send you a Christmas package! This month I'll give away 5 holiday packages that will include a book of your choice as well as some fun holiday stuff from the Great State of TEXAS!

All you have to do is email us a picture of yourself holding one of my books in front of any type of holiday display--it can be a Christmas tree, a Thanksgiving dinner, a roaring fire, or a snow covered porch. We'll share via Twitter, etc, and maybe between us we can encourage others to read.

Send your picture to KristyKreymer (at) gmail (dot) com. We'll pick 5 winners before December 5th, so get those pics in!



You can view all upcoming releases on my Amazon page. There are plenty of books to pre-order, including Raging Storm (releases 2-1-16) and What the Bishop Saw (releases 5-1-17). 

My blog, From the Back Porch, encourages interaction between you and me--including videos, pics, and Q&A. You can read the blog here. And you can sign up for email notification by typing your email address in the second box on the right hand side

Wondering what books to read first? You can find a list of books, in order, here


I pray that your holidays are a special time spent with those you love--a time when your faith is strengthened and the love of our Father is a real, tangible thing. Feel free to use the Forward to a Friend button at the top to share this newsletter with others!
