Now Available for the Holidays!
Old Mother Frost is a children's Yuletide book based on the Norse pagan origins of the holidays. It is available for sale and distribution around the globe as of November 13, 2020. The story is based on Frau Holle, an ancient German deity who dates back to the Bronze Age. In this children's book, she goes by her English names, Old Mother Frost and Mother Hulda. She comes to the ground to make sure children are happy, healthy and festive during the coldest & longest nights of the year - The 12 days of Yuletide. The inspiration behind Old Mother Frost began when Jennifer Hartman wanted to nurture her son's Scandinavian ancestry through warm and magical origin stories of the holidays; since it did not exist she researched, wrote and published it herself. During the writing process, online support came flooding in from all over the world. The Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign received over $3000 in pre-order sales from the Canada, United States, Sweden, South Africa, England and the UK.
The funds from this campaign will go into making a second book in the Pagan Kids series which is already in progress. Going forward Old Mother Frost will be available for order using Ingram Spark's distribution partners, which includes: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart.com, Target.com, Chapters & Indigo (online) and more.
Old Mother Frost by Jennifer Hartman is available to businesses through partnership with IngramSpark's distribution services. If you wish to support local, all you need to do is request they order the book for you.
