Merry Christmas! Are you buying books for the people on your Christmas list? What about kindle books? It’s easy to do and especially appropriate for those hard-to-shop-for people who don’t want to accumulate any more “stuff.” Check out my tutorial on How and Why to Give Kindle Books as Christmas Gifts.
The digital version of my new book, Hope for the Holidays, is exclusively available as part of Making Spirits Bright – a great collection of fun and inspirational Christmas stories from Chautona Havig, April Hayman, Toni Shiloh and myself.
It’s been an Amazon #1 bestseller in a couple of categories!
The collection is only 99 cents, and – like all of my books – it’s a free read if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber!

Newly arrived from her home in the Congo and armed with a brand-new degree in nonprofit management, Carrie Strough is eager to organize and improve the Unity Plenkiss Community Center. Unfortunately, no one wants to be organized, and only Micah Neresen, the charming and handsome pastor of the local church, is interested in her plans. Or is he just interested in her?
With a cast of lively and eccentric characters including a homeless vet with PTSD, a con man, an elderly couple with an over-the-top Christmas display, a feisty committeewoman with a past of her own, and a police investigation, Micah and Carrie wonder if there is any hope for the holidays this year!
You don’t have to read Snow Angels to enjoy Hope for the Holidays, but it will be a lot more fun if you do!
When Lisa Marsh is roped into serving Thanksgiving dinner at the local community center, she encounters hundreds of children, lively teenagers, stubbornly independent veterans, eccentric elderly people, and a particularly rude and scruffy homeless man named Pete. The evening ends in disaster, but when her best friend challenges her to reach out and help other people, Lisa decides to take on the project of reforming Pete – whether he likes it or not.
Her plan is simple: Help him find a job and become respectable. All he needs is a helping hand and some guidance. And a shave. Definitely, a shave.
Pete is willing to work, especially if it means spending time with the pretty volunteer, but her tactless determination to “reform” him makes him dig in his heels. Her creative ideas for employment become increasingly outrageous, but every time he tries to put an end to her meddling, she charms him with her good intentions and willingness to serve others.
Lisa finds herself unaccountably attracted to her vagabond protégé and irresistibly entangled in the lives of the other people she meets at the community center. Before she knows how to stop it, her one small service project snowballs into an extraordinary Christmas ministry that just may change her life forever.
