How my characters will spend their holidays
By Jessica E. Subject
Hello everyone! It’s December 11, only fourteen more days until Christmas. I’m almost ready. How about you?
I’ve been thinking about my characters, too, about how they would spend the holidays. Some would celebrate Christmas, while others would not. Here’s what my characters told me:
Frey from Celestial Seduction – I never celebrated Christmas before arriving on Earth. Now that Carrie and I are on the Space Service space station, we celebrate the holidays with the other people from Earth. And it’s extra special this year with Tabitha now walking on her own. There’s talk of someone dressing up as Santa to bring her presents.
Josh from Beneath the Starry Sky – I promised Tamara I would take some time off. I don’t have anything filming right now, so I’m going to take her to Australia. But don’t tell her. It’s a surprise.
Jewel from Unknown Futures – V says we’re going to New York. She knows I don’t like crowds, but she’s determined to rid me of that fear. I’m sure I can convince her to spend most of our time in the hotel room though.
Volan from Satin Sheets in Space – My brother and I have never celebrated any Earth holidays before. We don’t live there, and don’t feel the need. But, for Danyka, we’ve put up a Christmas tree in the ship. And we’re going to visit our parents graves.
Jared from Sudden Breakaway – We don’t have any plans to go anywhere. It’s Paige’s first Christmas with kids. Mine, too. Should be interesting...
Ava from Another Night, Another Planet – I wish I could visit my parents on Earth, but that’s just not possible. Nate can never return. I think he and Wyn are planning to take us back to Elatia, but I’m not sure.
Skylar from His Alien Virgin (coming soon) – Christmas? What’s that? There are no special days here. If someone were to give me a gift though, I would want a way off this planet, maybe even a chance to see Daran again.
Leave a comment telling me your holiday plans for a chance to WIN an ebook of one of my already published 1Night Stand stories.
