Looking for a keepsake gift as unique as the people in your life?
Enchanted Letter offers fully personalized Letters from Santa, the
Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and the Christmas Angel.
It's been a crazy year, with a move and lots of changes in my personal life, so for now, at least, the fully personalized letters via postal mail have given way to "instant" download PDF letters for purchase, over at my
Baby's 1st Christmas Santa letters are up; I'm working on getting the rest up in the next few days. Angel letters to follow. Plus I'm working on the Thanksgiving freebies for download as well.
If you prefer to write your own letters, my books are there too, as well as at Amazon. The newly revised, third edition, of Everything You Need to Know to Start a Santa Letter Writing Business is now up on Lulu and Amazon, with a new cover!
A portion of profits is used to pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, over at Samaritan's Purse. This is my pet project. I get so much joy from putting together the shoeboxes, which every Christmas go to kids all around the world. View last year's shoebox pics here.
And here's a sampling of the letters up on my Lulu storefront.

COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS CONTEST
Found this great idea on another blog, Mary Hunt's Everyday Cheapskate,
about starting a new tradition for Christmas, counting down with a book
a day. They don't have to be new, just wrapped nicely for the surprise
element. I love the idea not only of dragging out the holidays, but
doing it thriftily. She suggests searching thrift stores, yard sales,
Maybe there isn't enough time to collect 24 books this year, but this
could be a wonderful year-round hunt. (Yes, I'm the type to be on the
lookout for gifts all year long--on sale, of course.) And as an English
major, I'm all for encouraging reading!
Here's the link to the Everyday Cheapskate blog post. And I highly recommend subscribing to her newsletter. It's free.
I loved the idea so much I decided to run a contest. Twenty-four Christmas books, for the entire family.
Here's a list of the titles:

Just drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS CONTEST in the subject line. Body can be blank. I'll contact the winner for addy. Contest ends November 23rd. US only, 18+.
(Yes, these are new books. I'm clearing out my cache of Santa Letter
writing stuff, to make room for the new. For this year, Santa and other
letters are digital. See An Enchanted Letter for more info, and I'll post here in the coming days.)
In the meantime, you can grab my FREE ebook of classic holiday stories for year-round (includes a few for Christmas), Enchanted Holiday Stories for Children of All Ages, over at my Lulu Storefront. (It's on page 2. There's also a free e-coloring book for holidays year-round.)
