Things the go bump for the Holidays

Coming December 14th from Black Opal Books: A Collection of Short Paranormal Stories for the Holidays
This Holiday Collection is loaded with short stories by gifted authors. Here are a few blurbs:
Wings of Change by John R. Beyer:
He believed there might be a second chance at a new beginning with the woman her loved. It took a tragic accident to test that belief to its limit and to shed light on the question" What future lies beyond the grave?

An Unexpected Blessing by Bonnie Vaughan:
Why should she help a hungry stranger? She didn't even want to celebrat the holidays now that her mother was gone.

Making Spirits Bright by Debbie Christiana:

Spookie Millane is a loner. Her only companions—the nearly departed—souls who seek her out before they die for help with one last request. But on a cold December day, a startling visit from the almost dead may change her life forever.

The magic of the holidays can be hell…
Celebrations abound during the holidays, but this Christmas an engagement celebration goes horrifically wrong.  What appears to be a simple murder/suicide hides a vicious surprise. The type of gift Raine and Gavin, elite member of the Kyn, didn’t want humans to unwrap, because revealing the monsters in the shadows isn’t the way to spread holiday cheer.
Palomino Man by Julia Joseph:

 Demons don’t scare Miriam Kazin.  Aggravatingly cute men do.

Young but tough, Miriam isn't afraid to be alone.  In fact, she prefers it.  Between her unorthodox job and raising her two younger sisters, her life is already all she can handle—until she stumbles across the path of a fellow demon fighter, Shadrach, while patrolling a remote area of New Mexico.

Suddenly, Shad is popping up everywhere—usually in Miriam’s way—and it’s all she can do to keep him from disrupting what little peace she’s got in life.  When she finds avoiding him impossible, Miriam discovers the one thing that truly scares her—love.  

The Ghost of Christmas Present by Melissa Groeling 
Some things always find their way back to you…
Colin’s girlfriend is expecting a ring this Christmas. While he has no known reason not to take the plunge, a small secret is threatening to blow his world clean apart. Something impossible, something he never believed in before is taking him down a path with no silver bells and no twinkling lights.
