With the holidays around the corner, many children are making their Christmas list and others are doing the same.
For those readers on your list, consider purchasing books by self-published authors.
Yes, I know, books by self-published authors are often thought of as “the don’t bother with those books.” I assure you it would be wrong in passing up any opportunity to check out the self-published books. Many are really good and some have won awards.
If you purchase books directly from the self-published author, you can have them sign and personalize the book for whom it will be a gift. Can you do that by walking into a bookstore and buying a book off the shelf? Not unless the author happens to be in the store for a book signing that day.
I challenge you to give self-published authors a chance. You might just be surprised.
