While the holidays are definitely a time of togetherness and celebration, they are also a source of anxiety and depression for millions of people. If this time of year causes you more stress, fatigue, or loneliness than yuletide cheer, try curling up with one of these inspirational reads. Beat the holiday blues!
You may not know me or my work but I am the author of six critically acclaimed, award winning novels and I have been nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. On Jan 9th 2010 my debut novel SUGAR will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary and I hope you will buy a copy or to help commemorate this milestone. And yes, Kindle purchases count!
