Help the Elf!!!

Hi everyone! As you may remember, a few weeks ago PETE the Elf had a touch too much Eggnog at the Holiday Christmas Party and as he stumbled home, he lost Santa’s NICE LIST.

The North Wind scattered the papers to all four corners of the world, and The Bookshelf Muse put out a call to help find them in order to SAVE CHRISTMAS.

Ever since I read about it, I’ve been on the lookout. And then today, EUREKA!

Yes that’s right…I found part of Santa’s missing NICE LIST. There it was, fluttering in the wind, half caught under the corner of my welcome mat. And shock of all shocks, I recognized the name, and I bet you will too.

Here it is below:

NAME: Kris Asselin, Ansha Kotyk, and Jennifer Carson

LOCATION: New England



OBSERVATIONS: Kris, Natasha, and Jen are three of the best critique partners ever. But more than that they’ve turned into friends and that’s the best!

RECOMMENDATION:     a) Coal                   b) Gift

Because poor Pete is dashing all over the place trying to hunt down the rest of Santa’s missing Nice List, I decided to take care of this one myself. Guys, thanks so much for taking this journey with me and somewhere along the line turning into friends. Check your inbox today!

      Well, there were so many I wanted to give this little gift too, but I’ll have to wait until next year, I guess! 🙂
