Holiday-theme Stories For the Win

Who hasn’t read Dickens’ A Christmas Carol? Holiday-themed stories and books abound … but what about those with a criminal twist? A perplexing mystery?

Readers and writers and the generally curious are invited to a guided open discussion on writing, reading, and marketing holiday-themed stories.

What’s the appeal (as a reader) and the challenges (as a writer)? And let’s not limit ourselves to the most obvious and currently relevant (Christmas). What thrillers and/or mysteries that revolve around another holiday?

If you’ve written in this subgenre, what marketing hurdles have you run into? Or lifts that you’ve benefited from?
