It's almost Christmas and the last minute shoppers (like me) still need gifts. Give your friends and family something they can enjoy for years to come - books and art. For my author & artist friends, I invite you to add your links in the comments section. For potential buyers, check out the great deals my guests have left here. Above all, have a wonderful and joyous Christmas!

Please, each of you, only do this once per person so everyone has a chance to showcase their work. Periodically, I will post a link to this site on Facebook and other social media so that potential buyers will be able to browse and shop. Feel free to direct your fans & customers to this site. They might find something else to love.

For my shameless self-promotion: I am an author, mostly of romantic fiction. My historical romance, Indian Summer, is available at all on-line shops as well as the publisher Second Wind Publishing. Also look for Lone Wolf, the first in my sci-fi series.

For romantic suspense, hop over to Tirgearr Publishing and look for The Ninja Tattoo. Also, look for my new holiday themed romance Dulcet.
Merry Christmahannakwanza, y'all!

Thank you so much. I saw your post in The excited writer's group on FB.
My most recent novel is something those who have read it come back and rave about. It's hard-hitting but it is about hope and recovering from grief and trauma.
I've put the UK link first but it is available in the US too and all the usual Amazon shops around the world:
Once more a big thank you.

*Reader's Choice award winner! One woman, two men: a single summer to choose between them. Sacrificing a summer to fix her relationship with her mother and find out what’s troubling her father isn’t so bad...right? Wrong. Or so Samantha learns upon her return to Portland. As if family drama wasn’t bad enough, first comes Noah. Then comes Jesse. Samantha is torn between the way her heart skips a beat each time Noah looks at her, and the way Jesse’s touch make her yearn for more.

Will Samantha be able to choose between the men before their secret crushes her?

Thank you so much Dellani!

Divide by Zero tells of a community united by family and friendship, divided by tragedy, and reunited by the wisdom of a child. "An amazing story with epic impact" says one reviewer... (US) (UK)

Just in time for The Holiday Season, I've lowered the prices on two of my mystery books, "The Matador Murders" and "The Surreal Killer". They make great presents for the friends who are readers and Amazon makes buying them gift copies as easy as a click on the book page. Take a look! and

Thank you Dellani.

Desk Job is the perfect novel for the reader who works in an office and who grew up with Lewis Carroll's Alice books.

Have a Civil War buff on your list? I suggest 'Pieces of the Past'. A hopeless romantic? They would surely enjoy reading 'The Contract'. Perhaps you have a friend for whom you would do anything? 'The Favor' is a great choice. Someone interested in Pearl Harbor? 'Tuffy' will take them there.
Single titles & combo packages available for the bookworm in your life.

What a great idea!

Here's the scoop on my contemporary fantasy novel, Flow:

Kit Morgan has always known there’s more to the world than she sees – it’s hard not to, when her emotions cause objects to shift and glass to shatter. Then she encounters water-witch Chailyn, who reveals to her the existence of fairies, old and treacherous. Chailyn knows as little of surface life as Kit does of the supernatural – but both have to learn quickly, for Kit’s powers are surfacing ...

Looking for the perfect gift for the teen and pre-teen? Do you also want to encourage them to read more? I have the answer: The Beast!

The Beast of Macon Hollow is a gothic thriller written for young adults from 12-16 years of age. However, at its core, the story is Will Shepard’s journey to overcome his own fears and insecurities to find strength within himself. No gore, no profanity, but some good scares and thrills.

Thanks Dellani for sharing your blog and the opportunity.
My d├ębut novel "Bonded by Crimson" is a paranormal romance. Here's the blurb from the back cover.
Love isn’t in the cards for her…

After her short failed marriage, Kate tries to rebuild her life and takes a position as a nanny to three small boys. She quickly grows to love them, but their father, terrifies her, while igniting a passion she didn’t know she possessed. Disturbed by his distant manner with his sons, Kate struggles to make him more involved in the boys’ daily lives. Her efforts are mysteriously supported by an entity that cannot really exist. Or can she? And if she does exist, is she really trying to help Kate, or just take over her body?

But when he deals the hand, all bets are off…

Six years after his beloved wife passed away, Matthias is still trying to become the father she wanted him to be. Not an easy task for a three-centuries-old immortal. His search for the ultimate nanny ends when Kate Rokov stumbles to his home and into his arms. The immediate attraction he feels for her seems like a betrayal of his dead wife, a love he’s harboured for over three hundred years. But when Kate is stalked by a deadly stranger, life he clung to in the past begins to crumble and break down. Can Matthias learn to trust and to love again in time to save his family from disaster, or will his stubborn pride destroy everything worth living for?

Warning: fully described love scenes

Thanks for hosting this book gift guide, Dellani!

"Rachel and Sammy Visit the Prairie", the first book in the Rachel Raccoon and Sammy Skunk Series, is a great tool for teaching children to identify 20 common prairie plants. With an entertaining storyline, vivid photographs taken by the author, plus realistic illustrations, this book encourages readers to learn more about the natural world.

"Rachel and Sammy Visit the Forest" is the second in this series. The beautifully illustrated book will help children learn about 15 common spring woodland wildflowers.

"Rachel and Sammy Learn About Trees" is the third book. Rachel and Sammy, along with their classmates, their teacher, Mrs. Doe, and Doc Opossum, take a field trip to the forest, where they discover all kinds of interesting tree facts. This book will help children learn about tree identification, parts of trees, the importance of trees, photosynthesis, and much more!

All three of these books are great to take along on a nature hike! Please check them out at:
