The Perfect Christmas Gift

Giving someone a new idea or perspective is a perfect gift. So is the gift of laughter or even a good cry. When you give someone a book, you give someone any and all of those thoughts and emotions.

Most books are now published electronically as well as in traditional paper form and these e-books may be given as gifts as well.Click here for directions on sending an Amazon (Kindle) e-book. All you need is an email address—and an account with Amazon, of course. You can even set the date on which the e-book will be delivered.

While I enjoy e-books (and the shelf space that they save) a personalized book makes a good gift even better.

I have copies of each listing in my catalog and would be happy to make sure that you or your “gift-givee” receives the message you desire. I only have two copies left of Boots Poffenberger: Hurler, Hero, Hell-Raiser, however, so if you may want to act quickly to read the life of the man who was, for a time, baseball’s most colorful character.

If you enjoy local baseball, then look into Safe at Home: A Season in the Valley, and join me as I spend a year with the New Market Rebels of the Valley League.

For those of you who like to ponder, consider Fathers, Sons, & Holy Ghosts: Baseball as a Spiritual Experience. There’s a reason that baseball people are so passionate about their sport.

If you need a quick read while you’re on the go, then purchase a copy of Time Is A Pool, a ten-story collection of flash fiction.

I know that many of you enjoy learning about World War II as much as I do, in which case, I invite you to purchase The Secret of Their Midnight Tears, a fictional look at what it meant to come of age even as the world descended into chaos.

For information on ordering either a personalized hard copy or an e-version of any listing from my catalog, please visit either the Baseball Books page or the Fiction page.

Thank you, and good luck shopping!

About Austin Gisriel

You know the guy that records a baseball game from the West Coast in July and doesn't watch it until January just to see baseball in the winter? That's me. I'm a writer always in search of a good story, baseball or otherwise.
