The holiday season is here in its glory! Do you have your shopping done? I haven't started yet--two-day shipping is my friend.
Life was a little different a hundred years ago. Here's an article called Winter Festivities in the Old West. No matter how Hollywood draws the picture, the Old West was a melting pot of race and religion, upright citizens and the tawdry--but all enjoyed a day off now and again, especially Christmas.
Legends of America always has something interesting. Take a look at the Old West Legends: A Pioneer Christmas page. Life in the Old West has a good article, too: Celebrating Christmas in the Old West.
In the spirit of Christmas (and all those new Kindles we'll be getting!) the Indie Book Collective is sponsoring the 12 days of Christmas
Indie Book Blowout Extravaganza!
Over 200 books for sale at only 99¢ each (including Much Ado About Marshals).
Special thanks to this week's guest, Karen Witemeyer. Didn't you just love her posts? If you missed them, take a look at her interview and excerpt, then at her article, When History Inspires... And guess what? We have a winner! Tracey D won a copy of To Win Her Heart. Congratulations, Tracey!
Our next featured guest will be Stacy Coverstone on January 9th.
