Yep...it's that time of year again. When I desperately attempt to juggle shopping, decorating, family events, baking and all things writing. (This year I also get to juggle some remodeling that is occurring due to a broken pipe, too. I know how to party!) I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with the holidays. I love everything about them...which is my problem. Because I want to jump into the holiday fun with both feet, which leaves me fighting to carve out time to write. That's always an issue. And with the INDEPENDENT STUDY tour fast approaching, I have to write.
So...in an effort to streamline my holiday efforts, I am looking for help from you - the DSD reading public. Books are among my favorite gifts to give for the holidays. Normally, I spend hours browsing through the bookstore looking for the perfect story to give my family or friends. And while I have a few ideas about what I might give this year, I am hoping you can help me cross some gifts off my shopping list.
What are the books that you have loved and are interested in giving this holiday season? Kids books? Adult? Crime fiction? Historical? I want all your recommendations. Tell me why it would make a great gift...and if it is your own book, so much the better! Pitch me your favorite reads and help me (and anyone else looking for gifts) cross one of my to-do items off my list this year.
