Book Christmas Tree

What an Incredible Book Holiday Tree!


crowded holiday shopping

Monday, December 15th, 2014: I’ll be getting the last of my holiday shopping done (hopefully), with fingers crossed that there won’t be the kinds of crowds in the stores that are in this picture.

Wrapping presents

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014: I’ll be busy getting all the goodies wrapped up while trying not to get covered in tape, and ensuring the pups don’t end up in the boxes instead of presents. Then it’s off to ship everything across country.

13 Hollywood Apes

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014: We’re reviewing 13 Hollywood Apes, a chilling debut thriller by Gil Reavill. A fire that ravages the Santa Monica Mountains also burns an animal sanctuary housing retired movie chimpanzees. Malibu detective Layla Remington is certain someone wanted those chimps dead but why? And what will become of the lone survivor?

The Escape

Thursday, December 18th, 2014: We’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for The Escape, the new thriller from the John Puller series by bestselling author David Baldacci. John Puller may be an expert military criminal investigator but this case hits much too close to home. We’re also including an interview we did with Mr. Baldacci about this novel, so you can get the inside scoop and a chance to win it!

keep calm and get your ho ho ho on

Friday, December 19th, 2014: I’ll be practicing my ho-ho-ho attitude. Translation: I’m going to be taking a day off to recover from all the mad dashing around – at least that’s the plan. Don’t hold me to it…
