I know, I know--everyone is excited for Halloween but I'm celebrating something else this week. I'm excited to announce that this website and its blog have received over ONE MILLION page views as of yesterday. I feel proud of reaching this milestone. And, I want to take this opportunity to thank all my readers for joining me in the accomplishment.
The last six years have been an exhilarating journey of writing, publishing, and discovery. I've been fortunate to meet a few of my readers, made some new friends, and gained lots of experiences that have exceeded my expectations.
It all started with researching and writing the book Tis the Season TV: The Encyclopedia of Christmas-themed Episodes, Specials, and Made-for-TV Movies. Since then, I've been able to put together three more books on Christmas entertainment: The Christmas TV Companion, Merry Musical Christmas Vol. 1, and the Triple Dog Dare. The last title is a book that was just released last week--and I'm excited to see readers' reactions to it. All my books are available for purchase through the publisher 1701 Press.
Please indulge me while I share a list of reviews/discussions I wrote on individual Christmas programs. These essays aren't the most popular ones, the most significantly historical programs, or even my favorite Christmas programs--but rather, essays I'm most proud of writing. I think I expressed something in each of the following seven discussions that articulated some point well. And, I think it can be said that these seven could only have been written by me.
The 1969 episode "The Voice of Christmas" of The Brady Bunch (from May 2015)
5 Movies on an Island (from May 2016)
The 1965 episode "Too Many Christmas Trees" of The Avengers (from December 2015)
The 1967 episode "Humbug Not to Be Spoken Here" from Bewitched (from December 2013)
The 1964 animated special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (from November 2014)
Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory from 1966 (from December 2014)
1987's A Child's Christmas in Wales (from December 2013)

Thank you for joining me on this journey. I couldn't have done it without you. Now, where's the remote? I need to get back to watching TV.
Thank you for buying my books and thank you for reading the blog. Want to help an author keep writing? Please consider writing a book review at Amazon Goodreads, or wherever you learn about books. Reviews help spread the word to others about what to read. Thank you!
