No Christmas – a novella by Evangeline Jennings

Yes, I know it’s May. No ChristmasBut the book is FREE now on Amazon, besides, it’s been nominated for ‘Best Novella’ in the Saboteur Awards.

And it’s…sorry, I know this will sound awfully trite, but it’s simply true, so what can I do? It’s one of those books you just have to read. Trust me.

Imagine a not so far away future, where the right-wing, conservative, religious have taken over the US government. Now imagine all that might entail in terms of rights and freedom. Oh, and healthcare costs. And now imagine you’re a pregnant teenage girl. Scary much? You bet.

Here’s the blurb:

At the age of fourteen, life is already a struggle for Abigail Torres but at least she has Shelby, her family’s own Christmas miracle.
A heartwarming tale of faith and conservative family values, NO CHRISTMAS is the twelfth and final release of the 2014 Pankhearst Singles Club. Small, perfectly formed, and mad as hell.

Evangeline herself says about this book, “Scratch any Theocrat, and you’ll find a Fascist. No Christmas is my punk rock Handmaid’s Tale. It plays games with Dickens, the Shangri-Las, and matches. Abigail Torres can never go home anymore.”

By the way, Evangeline doesn’t know I’m posting this. I filched the cover pic from Goodreads without asking her permission, too. Sorry not sorry. Because good book needs drums banged, and good writers need all the recognition they can get. So there.
