Month: December 2018

I am making this post because I have had 3-4 people tell my they get a survey pop up when trying to access my blog. I have researched this issue and have found that it may have to do with adware on their computer. This was a concern for me and I wanted to address it so this is the purpose for this blog post. If you have ever tried to access a website my blog included and gotten the survey message it may not be the website fault. I am adding links to a few websites that may be able to help you figure out why this may be happening. http://

I just wanted my readers to know I was taking their concerns seriously and that I looked into the issue. Thanks to everyone who let me know about this issue and wanted them to know I looked into it. I am not saying that what these links are saying is 100% the problem but maybe following the steps may help.

Yes, pens or pencils!As an author I get ideas everywhere and it’s always nice to have a lot of pens and pencil lying around. I seriously don’t know a writer who will say no to either of these as as gift. Me personally I don’t even care if they are expensive just give me some pens!

Remember how I said I get ideas everywhere? Well, when a writer gets an idea they need something to write it on. Notebooks would be much appreciated by an author. Mini ones would be loved since they fit in just about any bag. Get us as many as you want!

I think this one is a given! Most authors are also readers! We will never say no to a good book! Learn what the writer on your list likes to read and buy them a couple!

Aqua Notes

This takes the notebook one step further. The writer on your list will be able to write notes in their shower or the rain! It comes with forty sheets and an aqua pen. I think this will be a fun gift any author would love.

Novel Teas

This is a really cute idea for tea lovers who happen to be writers. They come with quotes from books. The receiver gets a quote and a cup of tea. What is better then that? 

Jane Austen Socks

I love Jane Austen and would love a pair of these! They are cute and I think many writers wouldn’t mind having a pair, even if they don’t necessarily wear them.

The Writer’s Toolbox

Packed with activities and games to help the writer get inspiration. I think this will be a much loved gift that will be used right away! 


If you want to spend a little bit more for the writer on your list, I don’t know anyone who would say no to a new laptop or tablet. Seriously we are on a device a lot and it would mean the world to get a new one!
