Title: Rebel Christmas: A Rebel Series Novella
Author: J.C. Hannigan
Series: Rebel Series
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Holiday Shorts
Publisher: J.C. Hannigan
Release Date: December 15, 2016

Tessa Miller has always loved Christmas. She's always felt that there was something magical in the air during the holiday season. This year something is different—she’s not feeling the same spirit in her heart. With her new husband, Brock, out of province for work, Tessa finds herself feeling isolated and alone. Determined to find her inner Christmas, she decides to head back home in hopes that being around her family and her home town will ease the quiet depression she’s been feeling this holiday season and bring some of the holiday magic back to her.

Brock knows Tessa is hurting, and he knows how difficult it is for his wife to be away from her family. Unfortunately, there’s little he can do about it being so far away from home. When his boss lets him leave early to spend the rest of the holidays with his wife, Brock decides to surprise Tessa—with a little help from Elle and Braden.

Can Brock make the holidays brighter and restore Tessa’s love of Christmas with his surprise?

Read between the Lines and Readers are dying to know more about your holiday themed novel. Is your novel a standalone or part of a series, if in a series can it be read as a standalone. Can you give us some details?
Rebel Christmas come to me when I was looking for a way to give back to my reader’s last year. 
I’d only written the first two books in the Rebel series, but I still wanted to write a short story about a holiday and distribute it free to my newsletters subscribers, and I just couldn’t shake the idea of a novel with the Armstrong’s, Miller’s, and the Thompson’s. 
Everyone read it before I released the third book in the series, so I wouldn’t say you have to read all the books to enjoy the Christmas novella, but definitely reading the first book would help you get to know the characters on a deeper level. 

Where do you draw your inspirations from?
Real life situations and people inspire me the most, and music and movies help too. 

Who are your favorite authors?
Ginger Scott, Helena Hunting, J.K. Rowling

Was there any particular book which gave you the writing bug?
On The Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Speaking of potentially “embarrassing” subjects, what’s the strangest thing you had to research for your writings?
I haven’t yet had to do super strange research for my books, but I’ve had to do a lot of research regarding domestic violence for Becky Miller’s book, and that was difficult to take. 

Research aside, what’s the hardest part of being an author?
For me, keeping motivated to stay on track. Sometimes that’s a little hard to do, with all the other demands of life in the way. Finding the balance is key!

How would you describe your writing style?
I would describe my writing style as character driven. I plot out the intended storyline and I let my characters lead me to the end.

Any “fun facts” about the book?
It’s set in Parry Sound, Ontario, a lot of the family scenes and interactions were inspired by both my family and my husband’s family. 

Have you had any odd fan encounters?
I wouldn’t say “odd”, but I’ve had a lot of really heartwarming moments with readers that I cherish
Is there anything you’re currently working on now?
I’m writing a contemporary comedy romance about a welder and the boss’s daughter (who also works at the shop). It’s a lot of fun, although it has angsty roots, the main character is witty and sarcastic and she makes me laugh, and the hero is so swoon worthy.
