Candy Canes: A Story of Joy, Revenge, and Christmas

For Joy, things couldn’t have been going much better.  She was already living her dream as the lead guitarist in a rock and roll band when a mysterious, twinkle-eyed, rosy-cheeked stranger came along and swept her off her feet.  She believed she’d found her one true love, and that’s when she suddenly ran afoul of some small yet surprisingly fierce and overzealous adversaries.  Instead of a magical trip to the North Pole, Joy suffered a disfiguring injury and her whole life was turned upside-down.  She could no longer play guitar, and the intense but fleeting spark of romance had definitely been extinguished.  She retreated, disillusioned and brokenhearted.  Years later, armed with some candy canes and a burning desire to settle the score, Joy returned to the scene of the crimes and began her quest for retribution.  It looked like things might be going badly for her again, but a timely visit and a dose of Christmas spirit help to save the day.

Co-written by Michael Sova, William Todd, EM Kaplan,  and JD Kaplan, “Candy Canes: A Story of Joy, Revenge, and Christmas” is not your typical holiday tale.  Instead of cheerful talking snowmen and red-nosed reindeer, you’ll meet a giant albino bartender named Tiny.  You’ll encounter other odd characters too, and discover that some of Santa’s helpers have been helping themselves to a lot more than an extra Christmas cookie.  As the title suggests, the theme is revenge.  But in traditional Christmas story fashion, readers will be rewarded with a happy ending.
