coastal magic badgeToday I am so pleased to welcome Sean Michael to Joyfully Jay. Sean has come as part of the Coastal Magic Convention Blog Tour. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!


Thank you, Jay for hosting me today!

I’m so looking forward to Coastal Magic in February 2018 and I hope to meet a lot of readers! You guys really made the con for me when I attended in 2016. It was in fact my first one and all the wonderful readers I met totally made the event for me.

Today, I want to talk about Christmas in July.

When I was growing up, we had to drive for 8 hours to visit both sets of grandparents. So we only went twice a year – once at Christmas and once in the summer. So the summer visit was always special and it felt like Christmas in the middle of the summer!

To honor the summer Christmases of my youth, I thought I’d do a Christmas in July sale. I’ve taken 20 of my books and put them at 40%, 50% or 66% off. You can find the whole list of books and the links to them here.

I hope you’ll enjoy the holiday out of season with me! And I hope to see many of you at Coastal Magic in February!


SMLogoBest-selling author Sean Michael is a maple leaf–loving Canadian who spends hours hiding out in used book stores. With far more ideas than time, Sean keeps several documents open at all times. From romance to fantasy, paranormal and sci-fi, Sean is limited only by the need for sleep—and the periodic Beaver Tail.

Sean fantasizes about one day retiring on a secluded island populated entirely by horseshoe crabs after inventing a brain-to-computer dictation system. Until then, Sean will continue to write the old-fashioned way.
