City Sidewalks

♩  ♪  ♫  ♬   City sidewalks, busy sidewalks…  ♬  ♫  ♪ ♩

That’s all I feel safe in saying. That’s a common enough phrase, but beyond this could be copyright issues. Still, if you want to hear the song and get in the mood, here you go:

Okay, so what’s the point in all this? Well, I no longer live in a big city. When I was younger and lived near Pittsburgh, I looked forward to going into the city, well, anytime, really. But definitely during the holidays. The garland on streetlights, the tree at the Point, the lights on the buildings, the displays in store windows, the smells and tastes of food at the Strip District, the annual performance of The Nutcracker… I’m telling you, there’s nothing like Christmas in Pittsburgh.

City Sidewalks, Busy SidewalksWhich brings me to my point.

Because I missed the city so much, I wrote a novella set in Pittsburgh at Christmastime. There’s even a quick trip to Gettysburg and the Jennie Wade House.

Pennsylvania is rife with historical sites as well as cultural and artistic installations, great food, talented sports teams… there is something for everyone there. I’m hoping this story does my former home justice.

There is a lot of Pennsylvania in this novella, but there’s also a lot of Christmas, a lot of romance, and, I admit, a lot of heat. But if you’re looking for a holiday trip to Pennsylvania and can’t afford to take it, this might be the story for you.

When We Finally Kiss Goodnight Teaser
When We Finally Kiss Goodnight puts a smile on my face and warmth in my heart, because it takes me home when I can’t be there. This holiday season, I’m wishing you love and family and warmth in your heart.

And a good story to read by the fire.

  1. Reading this post makes me want to experience Pittsburgh over Christmas.I’m such a small-town girl, I’m sure I’d be dazzled.

    And speaking of dazzling—Wishing you many sales on When We Finally Kiss Goodnight. It’s a great tale with wonderful characters.

    • Well, as one small town girl to another (Vandergrift had around 6K people when I was growing up, and it’s even smaller now), I have to say you’d be excited to see the city. Maybe when we’re bestsellers and rolling in dough (a girl can dream), we can schedule a trip there together!

      Thanks for the kind words about the novella. It’s a short story, but I really liked those characters. I’m glad to know you did, too.
