Leaves and temperatures are falling (sometimes)! Whether you want to snuggle up with a charming romance, a chronicle of Texas history, a chilling mystery, or a crackling adventure, the Lone Star Lit November Texas Books Preview has a cornucopia of feast-worthy titles.
WELCOME TO THE
HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2023
The Lone Star Lit Holiday Gift Guide feature is back with the best Texas-connected titles — for readers of all ages — to get or give!
We’re launching with nearly seventy books to peruse and add to your lists for holiday giving, getting, or just gifting to yourself! Visit the WELCOME PAGE for an overview of all the titles so far.
Over the next eight weeks, across all our platforms, we’ll be giving readers a closer look at the featured titles and our Page Sponsors: The Twig Book Shop, The Magnolia Bluff Crime Chronicles, Stoney Creek Publishing, and Atmosphere Press. Their generous support helps make it possible for us to offer the HGG with flexible pricing.
WANT YOUR BOOK INCLUDED?
Accepting submissions through mid-December!
Because our mission is to support and promote Texas authors and Texas books, we’re again offering the Holiday Gift Guide with Pay-What-You-Can pricing.
Any title by a Texas author or any book with a Texas connection, traditionally published or otherwise, is welcome.
