News from the Christmas Past Book

I’ve been busy getting the word out about Christmas Past, and meeting lots of readers, listeners, and future sugarplums!

I recently gave a “History Happy Hour” talk at the Ainsley House Museum in Campbell, CA

I also did did a book signing at Hicklebee’s in San Jose. And the Littlest Reindeer (baby Dash) made an appearance!

I’ve also gotten so many nice messages from many of you that you’ve seen Christmas Past on the shelves or end caps of your local bookstore or library. Thank you! And keep them coming!

Can I send you a Christmas card?

I love sending handwritten Christmas cards to people! If you leave a review for the podcast on Apple Podcasts, or leave a review for the book on Amazon, let me know! I’ll pop a Christmas card and Christmas Past sticker in the mail for you, any time of year.

Until next time

I can’t wait to share the rest of the 2022 season with you. Let’s stay connected. You can drop a line any time. I love hearing from you!

And until we meet again,

May your days be merry and bright!
