    by Sidney St. James

    Release date: Dec 12, 2015

    ENTER TO WIN ONE OF FIVE SIGNED FIRST EDITION COPIES OF THE FLAMING BLUE SWORD BY SIDNEY ST. JAMES, a paranormal romance.

    Angelica Thompson, an award-winning novelist, makes a decision to end her turbulent relationship back home in Denver and heads off to a secluded spot on the shores of Black Rock Cove in Oregon. She cannot get her mind into finishing her last novel in her paranormal romance series and is being pressured by the publisher to finish by the end of the summer.

    She finds out the first night of her arrival how vividly her mind’s thoughts and dreams come alive without visions of any problems back home. Her imagination of a dead sea captain, a black panther pouncing on her for his evening meal, and falling to her death in a cove hundreds of feet down off a cliff is only the beginning.

    Janie, her first friend from the village, wakens her in her cottage. She is the local real estate agent. But, was she awakened or had what happened been only a dream…could it be real?

    An ancient prophesy of destruction has been set into motion, and what destiny has in store for Angelica and the entire village of Black Rock Cove is bigger than anyone can imagine.

Sean E. Jacobs, 6th Generation German Descendant in Texas, Offers His First Eight Kindle Edition Novels for FREE in Celebration of the Christmas Season

CHRISTMAS IN TEXAS IN THE 1800’S

I thought it was time to visit my Blog site as I am getting in the Christmas spirit…the German spirit, that is. My tenth novel, written under my pen name of Sidney St. James is scheduled for release on December 12th. It is called The Flaming Blue Sword. It is not a creative nonfiction novel, but the first paranormal romance in my Storm Lord Trilogy Series.

To celebrate this joyous time of the year, and the fact that I have reached a milestone with my tenth novel, I am offering eight of the Kindle edition novels for FREE at Amazon.com beginning on December 12th and continuing to December 16th.

Oh, by the way, my first novel has a scene in it talking about how the Strauss Family brought one of the first artificial Christmas trees to Texas in 1845. It was made of turkey feathers dyed green, wound onto wire branches, and mounted on wooden bases.

They were widely accepted in the 1800’s in Texas. But, if one were to follow the area in the far northeast where German settlers brought their artificial trees, places like Boston and Philadelphia, they were denounced as sacrilegious and pagan by some of the Protestant groups in that part of the country.

German families would decorate the trees with popcorn chains, paper flowers, paper chains and decorated cookies, candy and nuts.

In a magazine found during the writing of ADVERSITY – Face to Face, an article once suggested a 12-foot tall tree have 400 wax candles to adequately light the tree. At the Lutheran Church in Frelsburg, Texas, there were elders who stood by with wet sponges on long sticks ready to extinguish the candles as they burned down low on Christmas Eve.

Watch for future blogs on German traditions at Christmas!
