It’s almost Christmas, and you have retailers pushing and shoving at you from all directions. Buy this, give that, hurry, cheap, buy, give, give, give.
Giving in itself is not a bad thing. The commercial mess that’s become our holidays may well be totally out of hand. And then here comes along someone else asking you to buy something.
What I’d really like to see is share ourselves with each other, visit, talk about our dreams, our hopes, who we love. And beyond that, try to love everyone we can.
I’d like to visit with the people who buy and read my books, and what better time than at Christmas. In December I’m having two book signings for the sheer fun of meeting my readers. If you want one of my new books, that’s great, but come to visit with me. I’m offering some good buys because sometimes it takes a bargain to get visitors.
At St. Paul Arkansas, in their new library, we’ll have a gathering on Monday, December 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. If you live in that area or love traveling gorgeous highway 16 into Madison County, then stop by. If you want a hard cover copy of Beyond the Moon for yourself or as a gift, you can have a free paperback copy of any one of my books free. If it’s mysteries you prefer, buy the #1 or #2 paperback copy of A Twist of Poe and get the second one at half price.
I’ll also do a drawing for a door prize. The winner can choose any book I have with me free. We’re going to have lots of fun and celebrate being together. I’m looking forward to this.
On Saturday, December 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. I’ll be with four other authors at Elkins Arkansas library with the same offers. I can’t speak for the things they’ll have, but I’m sure you can fill in that shopping list with some great book buys.
Hope to see you at one or the other.
