All I Want for Christmas is...

A book.  Or two.  Or ten.  Seriously, what’s better than getting a book for Christmas?

I thought I’d make a list of book suggestions for Christmas gifts.  Books written by friends.  (In addition to suggesting my own book, Expecting, a sometimes sad, sometimes funny look at infertility.  Makes a perfect stocking stuffer.  Available on Amazon or at other fine retailers near you.)

Also available on Amazon:

City of Whores – Mark B. Perry.  If you like the film Sunset Boulevard, grab this one.  Intrigue, romance, sex, manipulation.  Life in Hollywood in the ‘50s. 

Jonny Bails Floatin and the Luck of the Bioluminescence – J. Lee Glassman.  A struggling musician in the Florida Keys... with a touch of sci-fi.  How can you resist a book with “bioluminescence” in the title?

No Such Thing as a Cherokee Princess – Barrie Miller Kirby.  Two characters fall in love - with complications along the way.  Set in North Carolina. 

The Big Hoot – R. L. McDaniel.  A YA novel (although grown-ups will like it too) about a high school boy and basketball and music and parenting. 

Crown of Ice – Vicki L. Weavil.  A retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen.

(Did I mention my book, Expecting?  I probably did already.)

Hollywood Digs – Ken LaZebnik.  Lesser known true stories from the film industry and tales of Ken’s own adventures in the business.  (Order from

Happy holidays and happy reading!
