Reading Clean Give Away Hop

A big thank you to Kathy at I Am a Reader, Not A Writer for hosting this month's giveaway, Reading Clean!


Kris Kringle is the round, jolly, elderly man that everyone knows. The man who spends his life giving.
But have you ever wondered about the boy he was? 
The young man? 
The newlywed?
Magic explores the background of the world's most beloved fictitious character. Illustrates the experiences that forged courage and strength, and made the boy into the man.
It also tells the story of the girl, Rebecca, who will one day become his wife. 
It is accepted that Kris Kringle lives at the North Pole. 
With Elves. 
But have you ever wondered how that happened? It must have taken some world-changing, even traumatic event to force an entire race to take up lodgings at a place so utterly inhospitable and unwelcoming.
Kris Kringle's Magic is a story of prejudice. Of hatred and fear and abuse.
And of true forgiveness and love.
And Magic.
You will never picture old Kris Kringle in the same light again. If you loved him before, you will love him even more now.
Filled with messages of love, forbearance, humanity and courage, Kris Kringle's Magic is the perfect Christmas story for the whole family. Using the dark themes of slavery and abuse, it proves that, with love and spiritual courage, one man can make a difference in the lives of thousands. Even millions. 
Let Kris Kringle's Magic change your world!
