It's December first -- happy holidays! Hanukkah has already begun and the gift-giving season is upon us. This is your friendly annual reminder that there are lots of ways to give a gift to the readers and the writers in your life -- even if the budget is tight. EVEN if the budget is zero!
Here is kc's quick gift-giving guide, to help you when you are stuck for the perfect something.
Of course, books are always the best gifts to give and to receive, and buying books is a great way to support your local independent bookstore. And don't be limited by format -- more people than ever are enjoying ebooks [endless supply, no bookshelf required], and audiobooks are the greatest thing ever!
It's a given that you can support your favourite writer by buying a copy of their book -- or more than one! But what if the budget is tight? The best FREE gift you can give a writer you love is to post a review of one of their books at your retailer of choice online. Reviews -- even the tepid ones! -- sell books. Another great gift you can give for free? Request their books at your local library! And don't forget to ask for e-copies, or the audio version, too, if there is one available.
Who knew the gift-giving season could be so cheap and easy? THIS is why having a writer for a friend is the best....right?
MY new book, An Accidental Odyssey, is arriving in two weeks. And until December 7th, you can order a signed copy from Love's Sweet Arrow, and get a whole selection of swag, too! All the details are HERE:
Thank you for sharing the love this holiday season with my books!
