Happy 4th of July everyone! I know most of you are thinking why is this Author talking about her Christmas book in July? Well I recently stumbled into a beautiful year round Christmas store in our local mountains near where I live. The display windows of this amazing store drew me in with it's twinkling lights and gorgeous Christmas trees! Have you ever walked under an upside down Christmas tree? It is a magical experience! The owner must have noticed my expression of total joy because in that magical moment she stepped forward and welcomed me into her very recently opened store! You see she shared with me she has been open for only a month. This store is her dream come true! For years she thought how wonderful it would be to work in her very own year round Christmas store. With hard work and family support her dream has become her reality! I introduced her to my husband who quickly mentioned how I too turned my dream of writing books into my reality! Once we told her about my Christmas story Pages the Book-maker Elf, she immediately asked to carry multiple copies in her store! Anyone reading this before July 8, 2016 will be hearing this exciting news first!!! I will officially announce this exciting news on my Facebook page on July 8th. Thank you for checking in on my website and I hope if you are ever in the Big Bear Lake area of Southern California, you will stop by A Christmas Store "n" More and see that magical store for yourself!! You can also check out the store on FB. I know it may be hard to think of the Christmas holiday. when you are making your BBQ and fireworks plans! So for now enjoy your summer fun in the sun my friends!! As always be safe and be loved! Diana

Holiday Reading

With the Holiday Season fast approaching, I am reminded of all the many classic story books that our generation read as children. A few of my favorites were Heidi, The Swiss Family Robinson, Tom Sawyer and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory just to name a few. Of course there are thousands of great titles written by amazing story tellers! With the continued growth of the inter net, we have no reason not to find that perfect book for every child in our lives! Even though most children wish for the latest electronic devise or game, I bet they would take a few minutes to flip through the pages of a wonderful old story with you! Especially if you pass down one of your old favorites! So my holiday gift to you this season is a challenge. I challenge every adult who reads this blog post to pass on one of their old favorite stories to that special child in your life this Christmas!! Maybe you will even start a new holiday tradition? Oh and don't forget to check out my books too. They may not be old classics yet but one day maybe?? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!!!!
