I know, I know, it’s not even Halloween yet. But I’m a planner. I start my holiday shopping early (this year, I started in August).

And the best way to shop for the holiday season? With the annual WMG Holiday Spectacular Kickstarter, of course!

The 2023 WMG Holiday Spectacular Kickstarter launches tomorrow at noon, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store this year!

Not only are we launching the Holiday Spectacular’s signature project—the amazing Calendar of Stories, which this year features a story a day for 40 days from American Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day—but we also have oodles of holiday anthologies, special holiday-themed writing workshops and brand-new Holiday Spectacular-themed merchandise!

Some of you might remember that last year, we partnered with exceptionally talented artist Bob Giordano for the book covers for our annual anthologies. Well, this year we’ve also partnered with him to create the perfect merchandise to enjoy the holiday season: mugs and coasters to enjoy a delicious cup of cocoa or tea or coffee as well as pillows and blankets to get comfy on the couch while reading the Calendar of Stories. Plus, we have puzzles, too, to while away the evening after you’ve read that day’s story.

Here’s a sneak peek at these fantastic items:

And just so you don’t feel like I’m skipping Halloween (I’m absolutely not), we have you covered there, too. There’s still time to get the 2023 Halloween Bundle on StoryBundle, which features ten books perfect for this spooky holiday (including three offerings from WMG—Halloween HarvestFantasyLife and Other Stories, and Three Sheets to the Wind—plus four StoryBundle exclusives!). Click here to check that out.

So, get Halloween for now and Christmas for later. Spectacular holiday fun is all around us!
