Christmas Is: Mischief and Merriment in Manhattan {GIVEAWAY}

 Just in time for the holiday season, author Clay Rivers announces the release of Christmas Is: Mischief and Merriment in Manhattan. Rivers’ fourth book and first fiction novel is a comedic, mad-cap love letter to New York, its inhabitants and the unique culture of holiday spirit the city possesses. The story drops the reader in the middle of the Big Apple just as the Christmas season kicks off and carries them through to Christmas Day.

In this light-hearted and broad comic holiday novel, Ben Franklin Albright, a cash-strapped New York investment banker, inherits and reluctantly takes the helm of his father’s failing talent agency in order to keep a roof over his head. Franklin makes plans to meet Sandy, the agency’s secretary and sole employee, and introduce himself to the firm’s last two clients—actors who play Santa and Mrs. Claus in the beloved Broadway smash hit, Christmas Is.

 Franklin’s plans quickly unravel when he inadvertently botches his meeting with Sandy. To add to his frustration, Mrs. Claus comes out on the losing end when she tangles on stage with a large, rogue gingerbread house ... much to the delight of Maxim, a ruthless rival agent, whose vengeful plans to dismantle Franklin’s agency are already underway. 

Undaunted and through fast-talking and double-dealing, Franklin recruits the show’s former Mrs. Claus (and aspiring Hollywood starlet), Judy, to reprise her role; despite warnings that she and Bill (the actor portraying Santa in the show) are bitterly estranged. 

With the aid of old friends and new, against obstacles over-the-top and heart-rending, Franklin ensures that New York’s jolliest extravaganza opens, and he learns the true meaning of Christmas.

 Christmas Is: Mischief and Merriment in Manhattan, is a madcap, one horse open sleigh ride through familiar images of New York during the holidays that gives a nod to moments from beloved Christmas tales, and spins a new take on how the holiday season can show us the best path to take us from where we are to where we truly want to be.

 Christmas Is is available in print at for $12.99, and also for Kindle, Nook, iPad, and Kobo devices for $9.99.
