Holiday gift-buying can be a stressful adventure even in the best of times. “Should I give Uncle yet another tie?” or “Does Mom really want another bottle of Midnight Rain perfume?”are questions we all ask ourselves as we scratch our butts and wander like blind lambs through the maze of shelves bursting with bright new shinies, each vying for our attention (and cash). Well, that’s why I’m here; to help make your shopping just a little bit easier. And stop scratching yourself in public! Those two old ladies have a case of the vapors, thanks to your busy hands…

This year, why not spend those hard-earned Euros, Pounds and Dollars on a more thoughtful gift? Proudly give something that reflects the thought you invested in your loved one. Are you paying attention here? I’m trying to help you out. Now, listen to me.

New Yesterdays is a well-told tale about a bewildered little boy who is faced with decisions that would cause the most experienced man to blanch. Go with him as he learns to live with the Cherokee Indians of the early 1820s. Experience the agony of war and the quiet joy that comes only with the hope for better tomorrows.

Go to Createspace today and order New Yesterdays for those readers on your shopping list. Add an extra or two for those you just know you’re forgetting right now. For those Kindle users on your list, all you need to do is pop over to Amazon or for the eBook version. Don’t forget, while you’re there, to request a free autograph! Do it now, while it’s still on your mind. You know you’re about to be busier than a three tailed cat in a rocking chair store!

Finally, don’t forget the most important person who probably isn’t on your list. Treat yourself to a copy of New Yesterdays, too! You’ll be so glad you did, especially in the days and weeks to come when your gift recipients come back to thank you for the book!

A great big ‘thank you’ to all of you for supporting my writing, and for each and every one of you I send my very best wishes for a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays and peace and prosperity in the New Year!
