Not long ago I read an article about Holiday Shows (a.k.a. craft shows) being one of the Indie author's best friends. So understandably, when one came knocking on my front door I decided to answer the call. I had no idea what to expect, but I thought I would share my impressions with you. Before I continue, I should state that the article did warn that it is important to attend several shows and find out which ones prove successful.
The Gift of Reading
When I say that I believe reading is a gift, it is a message that comes from my heart. The joy–and even sorrow–that comes from a book can be a comforting companion. The emotions and thoughts they provoke unrivaled. It is something that I want all children (and adults) to experience. It is why you will always find books underneath our Christmas tree each year.
