A couple of years ago, my sister and I wrote down all of our Christmas memories and put them into a book for our parents. With the season of giving fast approaching, it's not too early to start thinking about offering your loved ones something a little more personal this year.
I'm notorious for wandering Wal-mart on December 24th at two in the morning looking for last-minute gifts. But since I started writing, I've been able to offer my loved ones something a little more personal than an Ax body spray gift box.
Self-publishing offers many options for customized and meaningful holiday gifts. You could create a photo book for a parent or grandparent, write your life story and share it with your kids, create a collection of poems you've written or write & share a fictional holiday-themed short story. You can also buy kits that allow a child to write and publish their own story, with their own artwork.
This holiday season, consider the gift-giving possibilities that self-publishing can offer.
