I can't tell you anything yet because this one does not go live until Dec 1. Remember to come back to Goodreads to download your free copy of Yuletide Tales: A Festive Collective. I enjoy sharing my short story with you. There are many great authors in this one

"Yuletide Tales A Festive Collective (The Indie Collaboration Presents)" is a magnificent selection of Christmas-time short stories and poems that spans a wide range of angles and emotions about the festive season.
Classic x-mas stories about unexpected kindness or magical and biblical themes are included as well as an inspired horror story about the Anti-Claus and a very entertaining short about a spiritualist medium and her 'workload' at christmas time.

To comment on the other stories which are not mine, these are a collection of humorous, unusual, paranormal, romantic, frightening short stories which will have you laughing, crying, sighing, and looking for more. I commend my fellow authors for their great work, creativity and collaboration in putting this book together. The top prize goes to Peter John who started it all and without his much work in the background we would not have gotten this far so soon. Thanks too to our creative cover ...more

A wonderful variety of Christmas stories in this heart warming collection. Not all of them are happy, they reflect every emotion. Love, hope, happiness, sadness, regret, paranormal happenings and more.

Yuletide Tales, is a collection of short stories and poems based on the festive season. Even though I read this book in March it still gave me the feeling of the Christmas spirit. There is a bit of everything from feel good stories to a very creepy tale of the Anti-Claus, that makes me glad I have always been nice and never naughty throughout the years. My favourite was about a psychic that brought back the true joy of Christmas to the spirits that have attached themselves to her since her gift ...more

I think there's a story for everyone in this festive collection. I didn't necessarily relate to every story, but it was enjoyable none the less. It was nice to see a Christmas book that didn't follow the conventional theme of man meets girl. Man melts girls frozen heart et cetera.

Really enjoyable group of stories from some indie authors. Big range of genres so probably something for everyone, although you may not enjoy all of the offerings.

Again, it would not be right for me to comment,because I am one of the writers. However, I think it is well worth reading and the other author's stories are great. I wont rate it, as that would not be right. Deserves five stars though (LOL).

This is a collection of short Christmas themed stories. There is a few different genres ranging from romance to horror. As with all short story collections, some I loved and others I thought were okay. I am glad that I read this collection of stories.

It was awful. I didn't finish as the stories were badly written and not at all engaging. This was something our bookclub decided to read and I just didn't go to bookclub that month. Turns out nobody else liked it either. No wonder it was free

Although these tales had "happy endings" they were, for the most part sad. The Christmas murder mysteries I read were more cheerful!

Yuletide Tales A Festive Collection is a wonderful collection of traditional and nontraditional holiday stories written by a variety of authors. Each author has a short page and a fantastic story. I loved the variety each author brought to the book. A couple of stories that really stood out to me was Christmas Spirit because it is a story of one good turn deserves another when a family takes in a bum for a night. Giving him a warm place to rest and food in his belly. This story played at my ...more

I'm a fan of the indie collective and what they stand for. There were some interesting stories, or at least some interesting elements in some of the stories. But overall, it's not a strong collection. Many of the stories have issues with pacing, cliches, and convenient endings. If, however, you're simply looking for a collection of short, sentimental, heartwarming stories -- the kind of stories you might find on Lifetime -- then give the collection a try.
