Two Short Christmas Tales, Two Covers, One Great Gift
Presenting the first-ever DarkWhimsy DoubleFront Book, which pairs a lighthearted religious play with a paranormal adventure to offer a gift to every avid reader of Christmas stories.
The Beacon is an original SF comedy two-act Christmas play, presented as performed in 2017. The spaceship USG Starprobe and its three-person crew travel to Earth of 2000 years ago to investigate a star-like phenomenon shining over a little town. As they arrive, the ship is attacked by the space pirate Ted the Merciless. Can they call a truce long enough to solve the mystery of… The Beacon? (Spoilers: it’s baby Jesus.)
The Beacon is presented here in its play form, and published as a book for the first time ever.
Blue Christmas reunites the mysterious Rebecca Burton and Blue Shaefer from RJ’s ongoing paranormal series. Blue and Chip are enjoying a quiet Christmas Evening together when the mysterious Rebecca knocks on their door… with a peace offering. Blue and Rebecca had last parted ways furious with each other. Blue decides to hear her out–and hopes she won’t regret it.
Blue Christmas is a reprint of a short story originally published in the holiday anthology Gifts of the Magi.
A Note on Formats
The Beacon / Blue Christmas two-story collection can be purchased in three formats: the standard Kindle ebook and KDP paperback, which present the stories one after the other as KDP requires.
Only by ordering the preferred layout version directly from the author will you get the presentation of the stories as originally conceived: a unique (yet throwback) reading experience of a book with two stories offset to each other and two “front covers”, with the interior text offset 180 degrees. (Watch the video to see exactly what it is and why you want one).
