Blogtour: Midwinter Night's Dream by Eli Easton

Please say hello to Eli Easton and 

Midwinter Night's Dream 



Blurb:

Micah is the hippest, most chill guy on campus. But when he gets the hottest kiss of his life from a cute guy during a game of ‘spin the bottle’, Micah’s cool turns into a puddle of anxious goo. Sure, Micah’s always been a little bi-curious, but he never thought he’d pursue a guy, much less a guy who doesn’t seem to be interested in getting caught.

Leo is passionate about two things: gay rights activism and acting. He stays focused and in control, and he never, ever, dates straight guys. When a chance spin of a bottle at a party has him locking lips with Micah Springfield, president of the Delts, dread-headed, serial-dating, straight Micah, Leo is determined to forget about it, no matter how incendiary the sparks or how gorgeous Micah may be.

Leo has bigger problems. His senior project is directing Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream just before the Christmas break. When his venue cancels at the last minute, Micah offers the use of his parent’s barn in rural Pennsylvania. Leo’s play may be saved, but what about his heart? Between Micah’s sweet lips, his family’s welcoming arms, and a devious bulldog who is determined to play Puck, Leo may find himself falling under the spell of Christmas magic.

Christmas Traditions – Christmas Eve Dinner

By Eli Easton



“Midwinter Night’s Dream”, my Christmas story for 2015, just released on Nov 25th. It features Micah Springfield, Hank’s brother from “Unwrapping Hank”. In celebration, I’m out to spread some Christmas cheer with a blog tour!

For this post, I wanted to share with you our family’s traditional Christmas Eve dinner. Now this is a bit odd, because I became vegan four months ago! And this meal is in no way vegan. But it’s super yummy nonetheless, and I thought I’d share it for those still eating meat. All recipes are from “Mad Hungry”.

Everyone in my family says this is the best beef meal they’ve ever had. It’s really not difficult to make and it looks and tastes like a very special holiday meal.


Menu:



Standing rib roast with “hedgehog” potatoes (boiled potatoes that are then scored and put in the pan with the beef to soak up the juices)

Yorkshire pudding

Fresh peas with mint and baby onions

Beef gravy



Here are some photos of my family’s Christmas Eve dinner.

Whatever your Christmas Eve traditions are, I hope you have a wonderful night this year. But between now and then we have a lot of amazing Christmas stories to consume this holiday season.

Have fun and Merry Christmas!

About the author:

Having been, at various times and under different names, a minister’s daughter, a computer programmer, a game designer, the author of paranormal mysteries, a fan fiction writer, an organic farmer and a profound sleeper, Eli is happily embarking on yet another incarnation as a m/m romance author.

As an avid reader of such, she is tinkled pink when an author manages to combine literary merit, vast stores of humor, melting hotness and eye-dabbing sweetness into one story. She promises to strive to achieve most of that most of the time. She currently lives on a farm in Pennsylvania with her husband, three bulldogs, three cows and six chickens. All of them (except for the husband) are female, hence explaining the naked men that have taken up residence in her latest fiction writing.

You can find out more about Eli Easton on her website.

  1. I'm not sure what sounds better, the book or the meal. Think I'll bake the Yorkshire pudding and eat while reading.
