Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed on Smorgasbord this week.
At last we can celebrate Christmas, online at least without feeling too guilty…now we are in December.
An early start here with the Christmas Fairs to make sure that I feature all authors currently in the Cafe and Bookstore and in The Children’s Reading Room.. The fairs will be posted until Christmas week.. so warn your Kindles that there will be influx of books.. I hope lol..This week is a taster of what is to come..
In 2018 and 2020 I featured the twelve days of Christmas and I am going to do so this year but I have amalgamated the two. In 2018 I shared guests each of the days with their most special Christmas gifts and as the guest included the contributors over the last nine years, I thought it would offer me another opportunity to thank them. Because of the time lapse I have updated bios, books and links (hopefully)… and I hope you will enjoy seeing them again or for the first time if you are new to the blog. There will be music, food courtesy of Carol Taylor on most days and my favourite drinks for the holidays.
As always a big thank you to William Price King, Debby Gies and Daniel Kemp for their contributions.. they are amazing.
Thanks to you for dropping in, liking, commenting and sharing.. it means a great deal.
On with the show….
