Advent Calendar Day 27





So many warm and lovely holidays in this cold, cold month. I hope you've enjoyed at least one of them.


Thank you to the talented Johanna Ollila for today's adorable picture of Jake and Adrien's Christmas stockings, which we've made available for you to download and color at the bottom of this page right here (we recommend colored pencils for best results).


You could probably use some mindless relaxation about now, right?


For a little background on what inspired Johanna Ollila to create this particular picture, you might want to read or reread the holiday themed interview Flying High.

    1. For the effect of maximum relaxation I'd suggest coloring it while listening to one of the Adrien English audio books... :-D

    If you guys want to find out what's inside Jake's gift box you need to (re)read the Adrien+Jake interview Flying High to which Josh posted link to... :-D

    1. Thank you, Karan!

      And yes, Advent Calendars that don't end at Christmas are awesome! (But rare, unfortunately!) :-D

      Luckily, we can ALWAYS count on Josh surprising us... LOL.

    Little cats on Adrien's stocking!
    And he received a feather! I love playing with feathers!

    1. Ha! I thought you might appreciate those little Mr. Tomkins shapes on Adrien's stocking, Mr. Pinkerton!

      And how cool that both you and Adrien enjoy playing with feathers... *cough*

      :-D

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Rosy!

      Yes, especially peacock feathers never cease to put a wicked grin on my face these days. Which is a bit awkward. Sometimes. :-D

  11. I noticed that the release date for 'So This is Christmas' is now in Jan?

    And reread 'Flying High' made me chuckled a bit at the MSN smartwatch gift. If this was written a couple of years ago, it will most likely be an Apple Watch :D.

    1. It's coming out on the 30th from Amazon and ARE. If I can get the date changed elsewhere, I'll let everyone know but otherwise it will be the 5th of January for Kobo, iTunes, etc.

    2. I see. Thank you for clarifying. The date change happened on Goodread and I was concern.

      Delete
    3. Updated to add ARE is out of the game now. For good.

  12. Thanks for the high flyer story. I have always wondered if one day you might write a short story about Jake in his S&M days when he visits one of the clubs?
