Happy holidays (and a little Christmas music)

Wishing everyone a happy and joyous holiday season!

I will be posting here and there over the next week and back to a more regular daily posting schedule after the first of the year.

As some of my regular readers know, my husband is a musician who, a few years back, recorded a wonderful holiday jazz CD, Tidings of Comfort and Joy: A Jazz Piano Trio Christmas. Once a year, I try to do one post promoting his music.

For your holiday enjoyment, here is  video for the one of my favorite songs from from his album:

You can listen to more on this playlist from YouTube. You can also listen for free on Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Music and other streaming services. And, if you like what you heard, comments and reviews on your favorite retailer are always appreciated!

If you enjoy the album and want a copy of your own, it’s available in both CD and digital formats at at Bandcamp, CD Baby, Amazon and iTunes.

Enjoy!

Happy Holidays

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season!

I will be posting here and there over the next week and back to the regular daily posting schedule after the first of the year.

As some of my regular readers know, my husband is a musician. Usually, I spend one day during the season promoting his holiday jazz CD. I was so busy I didn’t make it this year. So today, I will leave you with a video for the most popular song from his album, Tidings Comfort & Joy: A Jazz Piano Trio Christmas:

Barnes and Noble offers print, e-book bundles

bnsyncE-book aficionados have long been asking for for e-books to be bundled with the sale of a paper copy. Barnes and Noble is fulfilling that wish–at least for the holiday season. With the new B & N Sync Up! promotion, customers can purchase a paperback at a B & N store then get the e-book for $4.99. There are over 70 books to choose from, including bestsellers such as Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander,  Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees and the Life of Pi by Yann Martel.  Eligible titles will be marked with a “B & N Sync Up!” bookmark.

The program offers a  great value because the purchaser can either keep both copies or give one away as a gift. Details of how the program works are available here at Barnes and Noble.com.

This is a special offer for the holidays, but the web site does not list the begining and end dates for the promotion. It is live on B & N now.
