31 Wicked Days of Xmas With Joe Nassie

  • What is next for you book wise in 2013?

Publication wise, I have several books slated in 2013, including two Rogue Angel books (Staff of Judea on March 5th and The Vanishing Tribe on May 7th), another installment in the Great Undead War series (On Her Majesty’s Behalf on July 15th) and the third book in the Jeremiah Hunt series (Watcher in the Dark on November 27th.)

Writing wise, I’ll be working on book five in the Templar Chronicles series, Judgment Day, as well as the next book in the HELLstalkers series (currently untitled.)  I’ll also be writing the first book in a new series called the Midnight Renegades.

  •  Do you have a favorite book of 2012?

My favorite book of 2012 was The Coldest War by Ian Tregillis.

  •  What is your favorite holiday food?

Eggnog.  Wait – does that qualify as a food?  If not, I’d have to go with baked ham with raisin sauce.

  •  Least favorite holiday song?

90% of all Christmas songs.  They just tend to drive me nuts for some reason.

  •  Do you have any holiday family traditions?

We all open one gift on Christmas Eve and when my kids were younger I would write them a special holiday story featuring themselves as the lead characters.

  • Worst gift you ever received?

A giant dried frog that had been made into a change purse that I received as a white elephant gift one Christmas.

  • Worst gift you ever gave?

As a gag gift, I gave a friend who was a golfer one of those fake golf clubs that double as an emergency urination station for use when you simply can’t get off the greens in time.  Complete with shielding towel!

  • Favorite holiday memory?

Taking my wife and kids sledding one Christmas at my sister’s place in New England.  Growing up in Arizona, it wasn’t an activity they got to do very often and we spent half the day sliding down that hill and then running back up again.  Of course, the hot cocoa afterwards was pretty good as well!

  • If you could share one lesser known fact about yourself to our readers, what will it be?

I run a marriage ministry with my wife and we’ll be releasing our first non-fiction book together later this year entitled Unfettered.

  • Weirdest thing you collect?

About the only thing I collect is books.  That’s not weird, is it?

    I remember the last Christmas we had with my grandmother. The whole family got together Christmas Eve and we had dinner, played games and opened presents. We used to do this every year until she died. She was the glue that held the family together.

    One of my fave Christmas memories was of my first airplane ride to Colorado. My grandmother and I were close and she had invited me to go to Colorado for Christmas to spend time with my uncle and his family. We got stuck at the airport between Kansas and Colorado on Christmas Eve and we didn’t think we would get to my uncles home however snow cleared up enough we were able to get to his home on Christmas Day. We had a lot of fun though and that was almost 30 years ago.

    One of my more recent Christmas memories is every year on Christmas Eve, we go out and meet up with family members that travel over a long distance just to see us for a day or two. We leave the animals at home, no traveling for them, no siree. One late christmas eve – or very early Christmas AM, we came home to ornaments strewn around the house and the christmas tree on the ground with the cats no where to be found. Our cats are usually pretty good at staying away from the tree, but not that year. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing with us today. I remember one year when our son was very little we got him a little stuffed horse that he could sit on and just the look on his face when he saw it was so precious, definitely a keeper 🙂
