In the Loop with Andy Andrews

On this week’s episode, I give the inside scoop on my short story Socks for Christmas and also do a live reading of the entire book.

 

In this reading of Socks for Christmas, you will hear a childhood story about how the gift of socks is one of the greatest reminders I have for being grateful.

 

I love talking about the inside scoop on some of these books, and to see the way that people use these stories to help others.

 

In the picture below, Jan Burch in Key West, FL, organized a Sock Drive with her ladies club.

 

On the cover of Socks for Christmas, that is my sister Christie and me on Christmas of ’68.

            I was nine years old

            Christie was four

 

On page nine, that is a picture of me at May May and Granddaddy’s house on Christmas morning.

 

On page 12, for Christmas Eve we would have a birthday cake and sing happy birthday to Jesus and it was always great. My family still does that.

 

On page 21, that is a picture of Christie in Dothan, AL. This was the same year that she was “Little Miss Sunbeam” on the Sunbeam float in the Peanut Festival Parade.

 

I also love the pictures of the different popular presents at the time

            Matchbox Cars

            Operation

            Candy Land

            Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots

 

If you order Socks for Christmas from AndyAndrews.com, they all come with a CD of Andy reading the story. All copies ordered before Tuesday, Dec. 17 2013 will be autographed.
