Guest post by J. S. Watts

As part of the Giftmas Blog Tour, I’m contributing two posts: one about my real life experiences of Christmas and the other about how the festive season features in my writing. This is real life Christmas, past and present.

I grew up in London in the United Kingdom. As a fairly typical (whatever that means) non-church-going family we celebrated Christmas, but as a festive holiday, rather than a religious festival. I had friends who saw Christmas as a religious event, first and foremost, and spent much of it in church and others who did not celebrate it at all for equally religious reasons. That was fine. North West London, as I experienced it, was a tolerant and accepting place.

giftmas_350x350I have a couple of quick things to share! First of all, I’m participating in a Giftmas Blog Tour to celebrate the holidays. 🙂 I’ll be hosting two posts on my blog and be posting twice on others’. If you read the posts and follow along, you have the change to win a TON of awesome books from the people participating, including some thrown in by yours truly.

Look out for those posts coming in December!

Also, the book I mentioned in my Stories I Love post for October – Second Hand by Heidi Cullinan and Marie Sexton – is on sale right now on Amazon for 99 cents. It’s character-driven m/m romance that is very well-written and I just really enjoyed it a lot, despite the redhead’s scary face on the cover.
