Christmas is Coming!

Hello, Terri Reed here. How is your summer going? Mine has been super busy. We brought home a new puppy this spring so we’ve been doing lots of training, I finished and turned in one book, I went to Nashville for four days with my son, I attended RWA’s national conference in San Diego where I sat on a panel talking about 'sweet' romances--my portion was on writing the 'sweet' romantic suspesene-- as well as played 'Vanna White' for the RWA RITA and Golden Heart ceremony and I am now writing another book due mid August.  
The weather has been unpredictable here in Oregon. Hot one day, cool the next. Cool in the morning, hot in the afternoon. Hot in the morning, cool in the afternoon. I am longing for the consistent coolness of fall. Speaking of fall I have two new books coming up.  Both are Christmas themed. Identity Unknown releasing October from Love Inspired Suspense A Family Under the Christmas Tree releasing October from Howard Books

Did you know you can pre-order books?  I’d never done that until recently. I pre-ordered a friends book and when it showed up on my doorstep on release day it was a pleasant surprise.

Both of my fall books are available for pre-order.  J

My favorite part of Christmas is decorating the house and tree. I love the memories that come with the ornaments. I enjoy the uplifting pleasure of seeing the decorations and remembering the reason for the season. Jesus! 
I have several nativity scenes I put up as well as the cute snowman and angels. I don't do much in the way of Santa stuff. 
What is your favorite part or tradition at Christmas?

I'll be giving away one copies of each to TWO commenters!


  1. For the past two years, I had played keyboard with my other church members. It was really exciting to form the harmony and unfortunately this year, I can't do it. I'm very sad about it but I have to move to another city to start university. I wish it wasn't like that and I will miss those time I've spent with them.

  2. I also love to decorate my house.

  3. I'm already thinking Christmas thoughts, too! My favorite part is the decorating. The tree, the lights, the garlands over the windows... and this year, I'm determined to find some mistletoe!

  4. My summer has been busy with therapy to help recover from knee replacement! And reading! I love Christmas to be with family and send/receive Christmas cards.
    Your books look so interesting!!!

  5. I love to decorate for Christmas....seeing Christmas movies, and being with family! One of my favorite time of the year!

  6. I love watching Christmas movies and decorating the house at Christmas time! I also love reading Christmas books at that time of the year too. It helps me to get in the Christmas spirit!

  7. HI ladies, thank you for commenting. Jackie Smith and Beth F. you've both won a copy of each Christmas themed book. I don't have my author copies yet but when they come I'll send to you. Please email me at with your contact info.
    Blessings! Terri

  8. WOW, THANKS, Terri.....I am so excited! Have sent you my contact info.
