Books Make Terrific Gifts

By Jeff Salter

Books are always a wonderful Christmas gift and since so many folks receive Kindles or Nooks (or other electronic readers), you know they’ll want entertaining titles to fill them. Since I know some of you still have gifts to buy, I’ll share links to about half of my 12 titles.

Everything you want in screwball comedy & romantic comedy (and some have action scenes and suspense). Rated G or PG so even your Aunt Tilly can enjoy them. So far, 8 novels & 4 novellas published. More titles coming next year. Working with 3 royalty publishers.

You can find ALL of my titles here:

      From what I read of your seasonal activities, I doubt you’ll have the energy to turn pages!
      But I hope you do find some down time… and would love to know that one of my stories would find you during that period.


  3. I have all of your books. You’re one of the authors where I buy their books even if I know I won’t be able to read it for awhile. I like knowing that I can pick up on of your books for a good laugh and some mystery/action/suspense.

      Gosh, Angie, that makes me feel wonderful. As you well know, we authors want readers to want their stories. To know someone has collected all available is a warm feeling indeed. Thank you for your terrific support! With all the time you spend writing, I don’t know how you have time to read…
