November is a very busy month in the Dooley family. I love the Thanksgiving holiday, and that's coming up in two and half weeks.

Four members of our immediate family have birthday this month. One son-in-law, one granddaughter, one grandson, and me.

And Thursday will be James' and my 49th anniversary.

The most exciting thing that probably will happen this week is the birth of our second great grandchild. Our oldest granddaughter and her husband are a very sweet couple. We're really proud of them. Although they're in their very early 20s, they've already had a house built and now await their first child, who's actually due on our anniversary. I don't think she'll make it that long. Every member of the family is excited awaiting the arrival.

Because of all the excitement, I'm in a giving mood. So I will give away a free book on the blog this week.

Here are my Christmas ebooks. The winner can choose one of them:

Christmas Confusion is a contemporary story set in Montana.

No Thank You is a contemporary story set at Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

24 Christmases is a collection of short stories and one play that I've written over the years since God told me to become a professional writer.

The Best Medicine is set in the early 1900s in Colorado.

Charlsey's Accountant is set in the 1892 in Texas.

I love reading Christmas stories. Do you? What are some of your favorite Christmas books?
