I personally thank each of you that gave a book as your special gift. As a writer, we set out with a purpose. Our purpose may be to inform, to educate, to entertain, to explain, or to persuade. Regardless, of its reason, there’s a story to be told. For those that had chosen to give any of my literary creations as your holiday stuffer, I’m exceptionally grateful. And thanks for caring about another, caring enough to share. You may have elected this gift ’cause you found it enlightening, you heard it won an award, or ’cause you knew someone who’d benefit from the message. For certain, there’s a lot of hard work that went on behind those pages. It is my hope that the person who received the gift will embrace its message, as well.
