Happy holidays! I’m so happy to say that I have a Genie Whisperer Christmas short story to share with you!
The other bonus stories I’ve offered so far have all been scenes from the books written from the perspective of the genies, but book three The Three C’s of Genie Whispering offered the perfect opportunity for a bonus story that technically took place in the book, but was never written out.
Rajan, Garan, and Illan, in an effort to make Christmas special for Ali since she was down for the holidays, go out shopping for Christmas decorations for her since their magic wasn’t working properly at the time, meaning they couldn’t provide the decorations themselves (despite their best efforts). I debated writing out the scene of them going shopping, but it didn’t feel like it fit the flow of the story, so I left it out. Then I decided it would make an excellent bonus story. Even better, since it’s separate from the book, I could write it from the perspective of the store clerk, who is utterly baffled at the three handsome young men who can’t stop arguing with each other.
Without further ado, here is the bonus story Christmas Cheer. I hope you enjoy!
