It is hard to believe that another year is already winding down, which means that the holiday season is right around the corner. As the hustle and bustle of life begins to ramp up the closer we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is normal to try and get ahead on our holiday shopping. The quest to find the perfect gifts for the ones we love is often an annual tradition of fighting traffic, battling unending lines and searching for the best deals, while never feeling completely satisfied with your final choice.

For our authors who want to avoid the shopping chaos, what could be better than giving someone the gift of reading? While I may be biased, I believe books can be some of the most cherished presents, particularly when the giver is the writer. Some of the most precious gifts I have received have been personally created or designed by the people that I care the most about. They leave lasting memories for years to come, especially when I see them displayed in my home.

If you are considering purchasing your books for family and friends this holiday season, there is some important information to be aware of as you move forward. Due to high seasonal demands placed on shipping carriers and production facilities, the normal production time for orders will be around three weeks or more. As a result, it is suggested that all book orders be placed before the following dates in order to allow the best possibility for your books to be delivered by Christmas:

Hardcover: November 29

Paperback: December 4

Additionally, rush and express order options will no longer be available after these dates:

Rush Orders: November 6

Express Orders: November 13

This information is not meant to discourage any future orders for the Christmas season, but to give you ample time to get a head start on your holiday shopping for any family and friends that are on your list. As always, if you have any additional questions or would like to purchase books, feel free to contact me by phone or email and I will be more than happy to help make this holiday season as painless and joy filled as possible.

The year is almost over, but the time for giving has just begun! I wish each and every one of you a magnificent (early) start to the most wonderful time of the year.
