You're a Mean One, Matthew Prince: An "effervescent" (Rachel Lynn Solomon) stand-alone Christmas LGBTQIA+ New Adult RomCom, perfect for fans of Schitt's Creek and Red White & Royal Blue. BRING A LITTLE JOY TO THE WORLD? NOT TODAY, SANTA.

The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes: Xio Axelrod has a wonderfully poetic way with words. In the Girl with Stars in Her Eyes, Xio weaves a lush, evocative rock star fairytale full of emotion and heart. -- Kristen Callihan, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Timothy Janovsky is a queer, multidisciplinary storyteller from New Jersey. He holds a bachelor's degree from Muhlenberg College and a self-appointed certificate in rom-com studies (accreditation pending). When he's not daydreaming about young Hugh Grant, he's telling jokes, playing characters, and writing books. He's the author of Never Been Kissed and You're a Mean One, Matthew Prince. Follow him on social media for more.

Xio Axelrod is a USA Today bestselling author. She writes different flavors of contemporary romance and what she likes to call, “strange, twisted tales.” Xio grew up in the recording industry and began performing at a very young age. As a result, her knowledge of popular music is nearly encyclopedic. Seriously, look her up on quiz night. She might even be up for some karaoke! A completely unapologetic, badge-wearing, fic-writing fangirl, Xio finds inspiration in everything around her. From her quirky neighbors to the lyrics of whatever song she currently has on repeat, to the latest clips from her favorite TV series, SKAM, Xio weaves her passions into her books. (And if you’re curious about SKAM, ask her about it. Just be prepared to settle in for the long haul.) When she isn’t working on the next story, Xio can be found behind a microphone in a studio, writing songs in her bedroom-turned-recording-booth, or performing on international stages under a different, not-so-secret name. She lives in complete denial of the last five minutes of Buffy with one very patient, full-time, indoor husband, and several part-time, supremely pampered, outdoor cats.
