About Nell, Coming Soon, Nell Iris' Christmas

Under the Felt Mistletoe

If you remember my last update post, I wrote that I wasn’t sure if I was going to write a Christmas story or not this year. The same day, I picked up my beloved fountain pen and started writing the story of Finn and Nelson, and last week I submitted the story to my publisher and signed a contract.

The story is called Under the Felt Mistletoe and is a short (approximately 13K words) M/M contemporary romance. I made a mood board with pictures that inspired me to write the story. Wanna see?

Under the Felt Mistletoe without titleThe boy with the adorable smile and ginger curls, is my inspiration for Finnย ๐Ÿ˜ย And isn’t that mistletoe made out of felt, florist wire, and tape fantastic?ย ย I want to make one for this holiday season! If you want to make one, too, here’s the how-toย link.ย 


The most wonderful time of the year is about to get even better.

On a cold, rainy December morning, Finnโ€™s beloved Grampa, his best friend and rock, makes a friend outside their home who he invites for coffee. The last thing Finn expects is Nelson, a man with a painful past, who is beautiful and generous and turns Finnโ€™s knees into jelly.

What starts out as a chance to get out of the rain, soon becomes more as Nelson helps Finn get ready for the Christmas market. They bond over coffee and fabric and Mariah Carey. Can handmade Christmas ornaments and an understanding heart give Nelson the love heโ€™s been denied?

    1. I’m seriously in love with that mistletoe. I might have to buy stuff and make one. It would be a fun thing for the blog, too, right? I mean, to post when the story is published. If I don’t suck horribly and botch it up, ofc. ๐Ÿ™‚
