Diz and Clarissa Are Back for the Holidays! 

It’s Christmas Eve in Baltimore, and you know what that means . . . snow.

Lots of it.

Join our dynamic duo as they battle the elements, friends, family, and marauding hounds in their annual ill-fated attempts to enjoy a quiet Christmas alone.

Originally published in 2014, this Christmas collection features the short stories, Nevermore!, A Christmas Tree Grows in Baltimore, and Blended Families.

But wait!

There’s more!

In the Bywater Books reissue of Three, you get a (plus one)!

This all new edition of Ann McMan’s RomCom classic includes the fourth tale of Diz and Clarissa, ‘Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas.

It’s a holiday omnibus not to be missed!

Three won the 2014 Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Best Anthology/Collection (Fiction).

“Ann McMan has given us a charming Christmas delight. Witty, humorous and full of fun. Fast paced and full of non-stop rollicks – I couldn’t put it down. Anyone who likes some Christmas cheer will love this, and lets hope for more Diz and Clarissa adventures in the future.” —The Lesbian Reading Room

“I like everything about this book, between the characters and their growth, the dialogue, and the silly situations. It’s such a satisfying read that, although it’s a Christmas book, I could see myself picking it up again any time of year. Even the cover is fantastic!” —The Lesbian Review
