Happy Boxing Day!

Boxing Day is a British tradition! The day after Christmas, December 26th, is called Boxing Day because:

It was a custom on that day for tradesmen to collect their “Christmas boxes,” gifts of money or goods in return for reliable service all year. Do you have any tradespeople who have been especially helpful this year—your postman, fix-it guy, city doorman?

So, I’d like to take this opportunity to share that both of my books are on sale at $.99 each. If your Amazon gift cards are burning a hole in your pocket, support your fellow authors and buy a book or two. I know I did. I found some great titles all on sale!

I can’t say enough about reviews… Did you know that most authors can’t even pay for book advertising until they have a certain number of reviews? Even just a paragraph or two makes a difference. <3

And, if fantasy isn’t your thing… here is a post from Sally Cronin that gives you access to books, music, authors, and reviews: smorgasbord blog magazine Christmas celebrations the weekly roundup.
