It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas, and in no place is this more evident than Avalon, Illinois, home of my first two novels, Friendship Bread and The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society. Now I’m ringing in the holidays with a special holiday novella, An Avalon Christmas. It’s an Amazon exclusive, and from December 19-23, 2013 you can download it for free!
In addition, as a special thank you to readers and Kitchen Friends, I’m making the ever-popular “50+ Amish Friendship Bread Favorites” recipe e-booklet available again, too. This special booklet contains 50 of our favorite Amish Friendship Bread variations along with the original recipe for the bread and the starter.

Here’s a little bit more about the book and you can also preview an excerpt online:
The holidays have finally arrived in Avalon, Illinois and everyone is filled with festive cheer. Well, maybe not everyone …
The husbands of Avalon have started a Bah Humbug Club. A neighborhood cookie exchange wreaks havoc on Erin Meeks’ carefully planned life. Melvin O’Malley’s daughter has abandoned him for the holidays in a senior facility, and shop owner Margot West is intent on creating the best holiday shopping experience for her customers when a stranger threatens to ruin it.
But a few surprises await them as well–an anonymous donor is giving away free turkeys at the Pick and Save, and there’s an air of mystery surrounding a generous raffle prize for the upcoming Christmas Bazaar. And when it looks like Santa might be a no show, someone unexpected steps into his boots.
Celebrate the season with 12 heartwarming stories of hope and cheer that continue the spirit of Gee’s first two novels, Friendship Bread and The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society. Includes recipes.
“Darien Gee writes with great warmth and wisdom.”

Happy holidays, everyone, and I look forward sharing more with you in the new year!
