Book News!

Here in California it remains unseasonably warm, so it’s hard to believe that the holidays are right abound the corner.

I want to let you know that all the paperback novels in my Avian Series are currently on sale at Amazon for 15% off.  They all have beautiful new covers designed by graphic artist Karen Phillips (many thanks to Karen!)  Plus (spoiler alert) I write stories that are uplifting with satisfying conclusions (also known as “happy endings!”)  These books make great gifts for the holidays (or any other time of year).  And if you’re looking for a fun but thought-provoking read for yourself, e-books are on sale too for just 99 cents each.

For those of you in the Sacramento area, I will be selling books at the Saint Francis of Assisi Church Alternative Christmas Faire on Sunday, November 24th from 8:30 to 2 in the parish hall at 26th and K Streets in midtown Sacramento.  I will be selling my books with the “classic covers,” and sharing some of the proceeds with The Franciscan Living Urban Center for Spirituality.  Learn more about the Center here.

Over the years, many people have asked me about the “alternative” in the event’s name.  No, the parish is not suggesting an alternative to Christmas, but an alternative to more commercialized Christmas presents.  The fair offers wares created by local and regional artists, and non-profit organizations.  It’s always a wonderful event.  Hope you’re able to come by and say “hi!”

Finally my small gift to you this holiday season:  here are two recipes, gleaned from Pinterest, perfect for winter parties and family meals.  I’m not the greatest cook in the world, but I love to bake!  These treats are both delicious and filled with healthy stuff like fresh oranges and olive oil.  The cake makes a lovely dessert and the muffins are a tasty addition to any brunch or dinner buffet.  They’re elegant, moist, and just-so-good.  Enjoy!
