L.J. Holmes
In her many Guises.

Thursday, December 8, 2011


I am Irene Cavington, Beck Cavington's long suffering mother. Next week on December 16th our story, Book two in The Christmas Miracles series...

THE CHRISTMAS WAR by L.J. Holmes is going to be released from Muse It Up Publishing.

Our story is the sequel to that annoying troublemaker Angie Brightwell's story from last year, ridiculously entitled


I want to alert one and all I have been unjustly represented in this sequel and may come across as someone you might not like. I need to protest this portrayal.

I am your average single mom. It isn't easy being both mother and father...so yeah, there are times when I have no choice but to give an unequivocal

no to outrageous things my daughter wanted over the years...but that is only because...well, a mother must always look out for the best interetst of her offspring.

Beck is rapidly approaching the spinsterly age of 35...so of course I am trying to introduce her to someone I hope will click and turn out to be her Mr. Right. No mother wants to see her baby alone in their golden years. Why is that so horrid?

I am careful and vet the men I introduce Beck to, but is she appreciative? No! All she wants to do is run her

Confection Store.

That's fine for now...but making candy, cookies and other tasty things, won't keep her warm at night.

I blame Angie Brightwell...now Drayton...for ratcheting down Beck's expectations. Ever since Angie's car accident all those years ago, Beck's changed and in that change she is no longer looking out for her own future best interests...so naturally it is up to me to step in and

fill that void...before my daughter disappears into


Is that so wrong?
The Christmas War, will be released from Muse It Up Publishing in only one week, on December 16th...and I need your help. I need you to

help me convince Beck the time to step up and find her perfect man is not a year from now, or, Heaven help us, ten years from now.

Oh and before I forget it, L.J. Holmes is donating all her royalties for this book and her other fall into winter releases

Beyond Yesterday, a rather intriguing story complete with a possessed northwind,

SUC-U about a corporation owned and operated by Succubi

Champagne Afternoon...ever wondered what it would be like to be dared to spend a day in a nudist camp?

and her May 2011 release, Twilight Comes, a dark story that'll leave your hair standing on end even moreso than how I've been betrayed...let me tell, that's so bad it is really good...to the Burlington County, NJ woman's shelter, The Providence House...I know, I know, generous measure...

On behalf of Beck, myself, and L.J. Holmes, thanks for stopping by. Follow the link down below to the Muse BUY page for our story and more info...(you will always find all L.J.'s other books and her author's page there too,) but remember I AM being unfairly maligned...so ignore all derogative references to me and my agenda...I am JUST a mom; no more nor less.

One more thing...Muse has created its first anthology dedicated to cancer research and treatment called

Lavender Dreams. L.J. Holmes herself introduces one of the many Muse authors that contributed to this worthwile project. To hear L.J, learn about it and be one of the very first to own this grounbreaking book, follow the link below Karen Coté's avatar.

Lin, I love your avatar on Karen's Romance. You look beautiful and thank you for promoting the book.

Your blog for your new book is outstanding as usual and I have not finished reading Santa is a Lady, but I am planning on reading this new one too.

Hi Lin! I'm sure I'll enjoy this one as much as I did SANTA IS A LADY.
