I love Christmas!

To celebrate Christmas and the release of my new Christmas novellas, A CHRISTMAS STOLEN and A ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS, I’m having a giveaway but not just any ordinary giveaway. This is the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY! As the name implies, there will be 12 days and that means 12 chances to win!

But wait there’s more…. in the spirit of Christmas I want everyone to be a winner! Every day, one of my books will be FREE on Amazon. That’s right–FREE! All you have to do is click on the Amazon link that day and it will take you to the book that’s FREE that day. But you do need to do that on that day because they won’t stay FREE for the entire giveaway!

But wait there’s more…. There will also be a grand prize giveaway as well! Each day you leave a comment, you’ll be entered for that day’s prize as well as for the grand prize. So if you leave a comment for every one of the 12 days, you’ll also have 12 entries in the grand prize drawing!

But wait there’s more… I wanted to give everyone a fair chance to win so instead of choosing the winners every day, I’m giving a little more time to enter in case you’re behind on the days. The absolute last day to enter will be December 20! Winners will be announced on December 21. I hope–I admit time seems to slip away from me sometimes but I’m going to do my best to announce the winners on December 21.

PS. There will be a different winner for each day but all your entries will count toward the grand prize!

Grand prize:

$10 Amazon gift card from me;

$10 Amazon gift card donated by Molly Jebber;

$10 Amazon card donated by Anita Klumpers;

An e-book of Two Suitors for Anna by Molly Jebber;

A Christmas Extravaganza!

Leave a comment

Every year my publisher (Pelican Book Group) gets in the spirit of Christmas by having A CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA. This year is no exception. So what’s A Christmas Extravaganza? She releases a group of new novellas (that’s shorter than normal novels so you can read lots of them) that all have a Christmas theme. Think of it as a Lifetime Christmas movie marathon for readers! There’s books in a variety of genres so there’s something for everyone!

If you go to Amazon then type in Christmas Extravaganza, an assortment of books will come up. It’s a great way to find new authors who love Christmas and Jesus!

Here’s a sample of what you can find if you type in CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA on Amazon:

A CHRISTMAS STOLEN by Lillian Duncan–Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year…until evil comes knocking. AMAZON LINK

NO HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS by Lillian Duncan–She can’t ever go home for the holidays–if she wants to stay alive!  AMAZON LINK

THE CHRISTMAS STALKING by Lillian Duncan–Life isn’t all glitz and glamour for country music star, Destiny; someone wants her dead! AMAZON LINK

CHILD OF LIGHT by Annette O’Hare–Will Margaret’s prayers for a child of her own be answered at Christmastime? AMAZON LINK

A SHARECROPPER CHRISTMAS by Carlene Havel–The Great Depression left the Shoemaker family homeless and hungry.  Things begin to look up when Herbert gets a job sharecropping, but what kind of Christmas can Alice give her family?  AMAZON LINK

During the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway that starts on December 1, I’ll be featuring a group of authors, some who are part of the Christmas Extravaganza as well.

A CHRISTMAS STOLEN is part of my publisher’s Christmas Extravaganza! Every year, she releases new Christmas-themed novellas in a variety of genres. A CHRISTMAS STOLEN will be released on December 1, but you can preorder now!


If you go to Amazon and type in Christmas Extravaganza, you’ll find lots of great Christmas stories to read. Pelican Book Group has so many talented and godly writers, you should check them out!

Today, I’m sharing some of the reviews and/or endorsements for A CHRISTMAS STOLEN.

Luana Ehrlich, author of The Titus Ray Thriller Series:

A Christmas Stolen is a powerful inspirational novella of forgiveness and love all wrapped up in a fast-paced, suspenseful story unfolding just days before Christmas. This heart-rendering tale of a kidnapped baby, combined with the story of a lost love, is a perfect example of how Lillian Duncan is an author who knows how to draw the reader into the story through realistic dialogue and compelling characters, while presenting the Christian message in a subtle yet convincing way. Readers will not be disappointed in A Christmas Stolen. It held my interest from page one and never let go.

V.B. Tenery, author of the awarding winning Matt Foley series

“Reading A Stolen Christmas reminded me of why Lillian Duncan is one of my favorite authors. Unfolding  high tension began on page one with a foreshadowing of things to come that didn’t let up until I turned the last page. The Christmas setting added poignancy to this taut tale of love, fear, loss, desperation, and forgiveness.  A quick and stellar read. Highly recommended!”

Lisa Lickel, author of Meow Mistletoe

A harrowing, heartwarming tale of a Christmas miracle baby, a kidnapping ring, long lost love, and long-awaited forgiveness during one special Ohio Christmas. Duncan shares a lovely contemporary story to remind us who we’ve been and Whose we are. Forgiveness doesn’t have to wait to remind us of all that we can become.




Christmas Suspense Novels? Really?

Leave a comment

Christmas and suspense novels don’t seem as if they would go together but…I love writing them and my publisher loves publishing them. When I first saw that my publisher had a Christmas Extravaganza each year where she releases Christmas novellas during December, I wondered if it was even possible to write a Christmas-themed story that was suspenseful as well.

I discovered that it’s not only possible to write a Christmas suspense story, but that I love writing them! So today, I thought I’d feature all my older Christmas stories plus my new ones.

THE CHRISTMAS STALKING:  Life isn’t all glitz and glamour for country music star, Destiny; someone wants her dead!

NO HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS: Chloe wants to go home for the holidays, but someone wants to make sure that never happens!

THE CHRISTMAS ANGEL THIEF: Some mistakes can’t be fixed or so Zoey believes!

A CHRISTMAS STOLEN (To be released on December 1) When her niece is kidnapped, Danica Jordon believes Christmas has been stolen–forever.

A ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS (available now!)  Johnny Rocker doesn’t need anyone, especially God because, after all, he’s a rock & roll god. As the floor beneath his feet crumbles, he hurtles toward a different truth!

As you can see, not only is it possible to come up with a variety of Christmas suspense stories, but it makes for some awesome covers as well!

A Rock & Roll Christmas by Lillian Duncan

Leave a comment


I love Christmas so much that I wrote a two Christmas novellas this year–A Rock & Roll Christmas and A Christmas Stolen! A Christmas Stolen is part of my publisher’s Christmas Extravaganza and won’t be released until December 1. A Rock & Roll Christmas is available now!


It was $2.99 but it’s on sale now through Christmas for .99 cents! I’m also doing an Amazon Giveaway with it.  Which means you go to this LINK and have a chance to win it for FREE!

When I was asked to be part of a Christmas Collection with other suspense authors, I wanted to write something new rather than use one of my older books. So I thought and thought. I wrote A CHRISTMAS STALKING a few years ago and it featured a country music star and a handsome small-town police chief. So…I thought why not reverse the story. So I created Johnny Rocker–an arrogant rock & roll star. It was fun to write@


Here’s a bit about A ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS:

Someone wants mega rock & roll star, Johnny Rocker, dead. It’s Maddie Cotton’s job to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Johnny Rocker believes he’s doesn’t need anyone or anything—especially God because after all he is a rock & roll god. When the floor beneath his feet crumbles—literally—he hurtles toward a different truth.

Since the death of Maddie Cotton’s family, she’s run from life and love. With God’s help, she’s ready to step out of her comfort zone and into a different life. But when her boss asks—no begs—her to take on one last job, she finds it hard to refuse.

Even under Maddie’s protection the threats continue. As Christmas approaches the danger escalates—someone doesn’t want Johnny Rocker to celebrate A Rock & Roll Christmas.





Today’s The Day!

Today’s the day!

Today’s the day for the big American Christian Fiction Writer’s Gala where the winners of the Carol Award will be announced. My book, Puzzle House, is a finalist in the novella category sooo…. what’s my thoughts as I wait to hear the announcement tonight?

I’m sure the other two finalists in my category are just as deserving. I’m sure their books are just as good. I’m sure they’ve worked just as hard to get to this point. Of course, I’d love to win but… winning isn’t everything.

Win or lose, God has blessed me by giving me the dream of being a writer and then the dream becoming a reality.

Win or lose, when Monday comes around I’ll be back at my computer working on my next story.

Win or lose, God will still love me as will my husband, family and friends.

Win or lose, I’m blessed in more ways than I have time or space to talk about.

In 2012, I heard the words, “you have bilateral brain tumors.” Those are not words you want to hear! Those words were quickly followed up by explaining that these type of tumors are rarely cancerous. Good news but that doesn’t mean they haven’t wreaked havoc on my life and my health.

As I went ( and still go) through my struggles, Romans 8: 28 has become one of my go-to Bible verses to give me peace and strength. God promises to work out ALL things for good for those who love him. That’s me! But the truth is I couldn’t see how God could work out BRAIN TUMORS for my good.

And yet He did!

Here it is 6 years later and I still struggle with the effects of the brain tumors but… I have peace and joy. I can still write the stories God gives me. And one of the stories He gave me is PUZZLE HOUSE. Puzzle House would never have been written if I hadn’t developed the brain tumors because the main character has what I have. Yes, the same Puzzle House that’s up for the Carol Award.

So as you can see, God really does work all things out for the good of those who love him.
