Christmas Feelings and A Dancing Idol

Well, at least Shinta Mori is supposed to look like he is dancing, as required by his contract, on top of other silly, festive things like a fried chicken commercial and a variety show appearance with a cute actress. It was all colors of fun and funny; a rising Japanese actor like him has little to complain about. But he can’t wait to get through all these and fly to Manila to spend Christmas with his mother. And when a friend blurts out a careless little observation about the girl Shinta can’t stop thinking about, it was all he could do to keep himself from burning his obligations and taking the first flight out to see her.

Christmas Chicken Dance, a Playlist short track, is one of the many short stories in the anthology Make My Wish Come True. This is the first ever #romanceclass Christmas anthology, and we hope you’ll find your fruitcake of choice among our many, varied holiday feels.

Order the print book here. You can ask me about shipping or pick it up on December 10, Saturday, 1 to 4 pm at Blacksoup Café and Artspace, Maginhawa, QC. Because of course we’re having a Christmas party, and you’re invited 🙂

Join a Kris Kringle and receive the perfect gift, or learn how to survive your first Christmas in Manila and the steps you need to take to be with the one you love.

Meet kind strangers and friends that remind you of home, and discover that the one who’ll make your holidays better has been beside you all along. With seventeen stories, there’s something for you here no matter what feels you want and need. Fall in love this Christmas with #romanceclass!
