Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday is no longer a single day of sales, but has become a month long event. We’re bombarded by commercials on TV, and the pressure to make the holidays perfect for everyone can be overwhelming .

For me the problem is often I don’t know what to get for people. We all want to give a gift that’s special, something they’re not likely to have already, and maybe something that’s a little unexpected.

(Full disclosure—what follows is a bit of blatant self-promotion, which doesn’t come easily to me, but sometimes it’s a necessary evil. I promise to be brief and hope you’ll stick with me.)

Books make wonderful gifts. You know that already. All of my books are available in digital and print copies, and make great gifts for those who love stories and poetry. They even appeal to those who don’t think they like poetry, or so I’ve been told. One of the things I like about short stories and poetry is that you don’t need a lot of time to read them. Great for when you’re sitting in a waiting room or car with a few minutes to kill. The poetry volumes are also filled with beautiful color photographs and make great coffee table books.
