Guess Who’s Coming to Karamu by Cy Blanca – Warmest Wishes

Grant Cary, a twenty-eight-year-old grad student, has let his Kwanzaa shopping go to the very last minute. In his rush to get home, he quite literally bumps into Will Sheritan, a fortysomething software developer, in the elevator. But luck favors (or curses) the adventurous, because their elevator shuts down due to a blackout. Grant and Will learn about each other’s pasts and find more than just a casual interest.

Will has never celebrated Kwanzaa, and he’s reluctant to enter into a relationship, but exploring a new tradition—with a new friend—might brighten his lonely holiday. And if Will accepts Grant’s invitation to join his family for the Karamu feast, Grant might get his Imani gift early.

Boo!!! The next page was NOT supposed to be the author's bio!!! I want my gosh darn kiss. This is one of those stories that did too good of a job whetting my appetite because I was devastated when I got to the end. Grant is a snarky beast who had me laughing several times over the course of the story. And I was looking forward to seeing Will partake of the holiday festivities with the Cary family, as well as learning about the celebrations alongside him. Not to mention, Cary and Will have the potential to be so cute together and I wanted to see if the sparks would continue to fly. Guess Who's Coming to Karamu is a great meet cute, but I want the rest of the story. But seriously, I adored this story; it’s one of my favorites in this year’s advent calendar and I would love to see the author expand it or write a sequel to it.

Cy Blanca has enjoyed words since she was in elementary school. They hold magic powers for her, and she loves playing with them to see just what they can do. She got her degree in English poetry, but she’s been doing mostly editorial work for online magazines YAM Magazine, Rock ’N Seoul, and SeoulBeats (yeah… she loves Korean music and gets to interview folks and write about it). She’s exceptionally blessed to actually be able to do exactly what she went to school for, and fiction is a new avenue she’s trying to explore. Hopefully she can make some magic happen with the words she’s been in love with since she was in elementary school.

She’d love to hear from people who want to know a bit more about her, or just want to become homies.
