Reader Wish List

I've curated a holiday wish list for readers and welcome you to browse through it and if you see something you like, click on the image and it will take you to Amazon. I do get a tiny bump if you buy anything from Amazon, and that supports my author business. Thanks for being here. If you want a chance to win $20 toward any of these items from this list sign up for my newsletter here and enter my Reader Appreciation Giveaway in my December and January newsletters. Happy Holidays from my home to yours!

Reading Accessories

You've got everything you need to get comfy and tackle that TBR list. Or do you? Page markers, ebook holders, book marks... they've got some new gadgets out there! 

Cozy Things

No better time than when it's cold and miserable outside to grab a good book and get cozy. A steaming hot cup of tea, bold holiday coffee, a nice warm throw. All you need is a friendly fluffy pooch to keep your feet warm and you're ready to crack open your favorite book and dive into a new world.  

Family Entertainment

When my son is home, we play this almost every night. We keep a running tab of the highest score. Tell me if you can beat our highest ever score of 337! 

My brother-in law gave us this game about seven years ago and we're still playing it! Fast paced and competitive, and of course my son always wins!

My oldest daughter introduced us to this game and we've spent hours trying to figure out who doesn't know the category. It's a game of bluffing, clever word play, and hilarity. All three kids (15-22) enjoyed this one! 

Another fun game from my oldest daughter (20)  and a clever play on gin rummy using tiles and wild cards. We all liked this, except for the shorty-pants (I5) who didn't have the patience to learn it. Introverts, am I right? 


What is on your TBR list? Grab one of those bad boys, or maybe that new book you couldn't resist and cozy up in your favorite reading spot, whether your bed, a comfy chair or a secret hiding place away from the kids! It's time to read. 

I've grabbed some new (and almost new) books from my client list (my other job is author consultant) and I'd love for you to check out their books. From award winning crime writers (one was a physician, the other a chief of police), to teachers turned children's book authors, I've got an amazing group of authors I'm working with to make their book publishing dreams come true. You can find out more about my business (and sign up for free books in exchange for honest reviews) over on my consulting website here:

Drake Kilborn learned to pilot spray planes in his youth. Although it was generally understood he’d inherit the business, he felt the lure of moving to a nearby city so that he could continue flying, but for higher stakes and higher rewards, rewards from hauling illicit herbicides used to defoliate cotton—and cause cancer for those who handled it. Kilborn has a flirtation with suicide. Freddy Paz, an undercover Texas Ranger builds a case against Kilborn and his reckless behavior. Will he be brought to justice?
