2015 A very bookish Christmas Author Interviews Jennifer Joyce
A very bookish Christmas with Jennifer Joyce
Hi Jennifer and welcome to Alba in Bookland's festive feature! Let's start, tell me your best Christmas present from your adulthood:
This has to be pyjamas. I’m not into expensive gifts and you can’t beat a new pair of PJs!
Worst Christmas Carol video clip:
I can’t sing so shouldn’t judge, but it isn’t good, is it? They’re having fun though!
A new Christmas release you are very excited about. Probably your own, right?
Ha! I am VERY excited about my Christmas release but I’m also looking forward to diving into How To Stuff Up Christmas by Rosie Blake. I love the title and the cover and can’t wait to get stuck in!
What’s your approach to decorating the Christmas Tree: go big or don’t go / less is more?
Go big or jog on, matey! Christmas is tacky and gaudy and I love it that way. I tried to colour co-ordinate my tree for a few years (pink, pale blue and silver) and do you know what? It was BORING. Now anything goes. The more the merrier! We have a mix of shop-bought decorations as well as homemade ones, plus chocolates and candy canes.
The Grinch, love or hate?
I do love Christmas so The Grinch and I probably don’t have anything in common, but I can’t help liking it. It’s fun and festive and he does learn his lesson so I’d give The Grinch a big squishy hug (against his will, I should imagine).
Thank you Jennifer for stopping by and answering all my festive questions! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
Jennifer's Joyce latest release is The Mince Pie Mix-Up! Get it now on Amazon UK!
‘I wish I could live your life. I’d happily swap lives with you.’
’Tis the season to be jolly but for Calvin and Judy the usual festive bickering has already begun! Judy’s convinced that her husband has it easy – no glittery wrapping paper, no playground gossip and absolutely no Christmas baking.
Calvin wishes he could trade in his obnoxious boss and dull nine-to-five job to spend more time kicking back with his kids – how hard can Judy’s life really be?
But after a magical mince pie mix-up, one thing’s for certain – by Christmas Day, life for Judy and Calvin will never be the same again. Perhaps the grass isn’t always greener after all…
A hilarious, feel-good festive read, perfect to curl up with this Christmas. Fans of Carole Matthews, Jane Costello and Mandy Baggot will love this story!
