Books Make Great Presents!
I love books! I love the physical experience of books – the covers, the blurb, turning the pages, the smell and touch of a book. And I love being surrounded by books – piles of them! (I suppose that’s the reason I rarely pick up my kindle.) My husband says I regard books in bookshops as orphans, and I have to take them home and nurture them!

And of course I love reading them. Those other worlds you can dive into, the people you can meet, the experiences you can have. I would be bereft without books, and if I’m ever asked what I’d like for a present, it’s always books.
Okay, here we move on to the blatant self-promotion. I know lots of you have already read my books, and thank you so much if you have. Perhaps you could consider giving one as a present to someone this Christmas. But if you haven’t, why not give them a go? Unravelling, my first novel, has won three awards, and my second The Piano Player’s Son was published by Cinnamon Press after winning their Novel Writing Award.
These are paperback links, but they are both available as ebooks as well.
Or if you prefer a real, live bookshop and live anywhere near Broadway, Worcestershire, they are both available at Blandford Books.Tags: books, presents, the joy of books, The Piano Player's Son, Unravelling
