Merry Christmas to my readers. I treasure the emails and letters I've received from you in 2008 and am delighted that you have found pleasure in my books, especially when you share how God has touched your heart. May you have joy and peace, during the Christmas season and on into the new year.

Merry Christmas, readers! May your season be filled with wonder as you contemplate the Ancient of Days, born into human time. And may you embrace the coming year as your own adventure, your own time in history to live God's exciting purpose for your life!

Dear Readers,

Thank you so much for reading my books and the positive comments about how you benefit from the reading. My books being out there and going into the hands of others is an inspiration to me. I love writing, but without a reader it would seem in vain. So I thank you with all my heart. May you be truly and especially blessed during this holiday season.

with love and best wishes

Dear Readers,
I'm so grateful to have the privilege of sharing my stories with my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray the Lord will cover you each one with His perfect provision and care during the holiday season!

In Him,
Beth (Elizabeth) White

Christmas is always a special time of year. I find myself thinking about people who have drifted out of my immediate circle: co-workers from my first days, neighbors from all the different houses we've lived in, parents of children I knew who are now grown and starting families of their own, and of course those children I met as students, Bible club members, and Sunday School regulars. These days I have a unique circle of friends: readers. I may never meet some of you face-to-face, but you hold a wonderful place in my heart. A book has no meaning until it is read. You bring life to my imaginings. Thank you for reading and for choosing my books. May the Lord Bless you and keep you in this season of grace and throughout the New Year

Donita K. Paul

My best wishes for a blessed Christmas to all you wonderful Chapter-A-Week readers.

Thank you for reading with Chapter-A-Week and telling others about Christian fiction. Merry Christmas!

"What would a writer be without faithful readers? A lonely voice. Thanks for being readers, for buying our books, recommending them to friends, writing reviews and posting them, and letting us know if what we have worked hard to create has touched your lives. You are blessings. May God bless your celebration of his birth and may you give many books as gifts. "

Lyn Cote, Author of Blessed Assurance

"Jesus said, "I'm leaving you well and whole. That's my parting gift to you. Peace.
May you experience the true peace of Jesus the Christ in you.

Blessed Christmas to all∑

Dear Friends,

Another good thing about Christmas time: we connect with people who are a part of our lives. Thank you for reading and enjoying my books. I wish I could give every one of you a hug of gratitude and joy. Joy for the season, for our living and loving Christ, and the pleasure of reading. I LOVE to read, talk about books, share books and yes, write books. Thank you to the many who have emailed me, you have no idea what encouragement it is to hear from readers. So may this Christmas be a blessing to you as we all take time to send love and greetings out and enjoy them coming in. Take a moment and remember how much God loves you.

What better way to weather the weather (it's c-c-c-cold here in Chicago already!), and weather all the economic bad news than to curl up with a good novel and a cup of hot something (my weakness is hot chocolate with a peppermint soaking in it). So I want to wish all you faithful readers a very merry Christmas indeed. Because even though the world is shaking in its snow boots, we know that our God is faithful! He brought us the greatest gift of all at a very bad time in history . . . the gift of His Son, a gift that keeps on giving JOY and PEACE and HOPE even in the worst of times.

Abundant blessings to each of you during this wondrous season. Praying God cloaks you with His sure and loving presence, and brings a child's joy to your hearts! Know you're greatly appreciated!

Warm Christmas greetings from Salt Lake City! And I mean that literally ˆ it's unseasonably warm in Utah this December, and the ski resorts are praying for snow. My family is, too, but for a different reason. We just love white Christmases! I always get books as Christmas gifts, and I love nothing better than to curl up in a comfy chair in front of the fireplace with the Christmas tree light twinkling at me from across the room, and lose myself in the pages of a great novel. I hope you have the opportunity to do the same.

Merry Christmas and Happy Reading
Virginia Smith, author of Stuck in the Middle and A Taste of Murder.

"Praying that Christmas will be for you what it's meant to be for all--a celebration of our savior who came to earth as a helpless baby and allowed himself to be sacrificed for those who are truly helpless without Him."

Tamara Leigh

Celebrating Christ's birth with you this season!
