This Valentine's Day got me thinking about the creation of holiday books. There are lots of in-house books created and once in a while I see one done by a well known author or author/illustrator combo. Is it worth it to take that plunge? Certainly the Christmas season might be a time to try out because the display space in bookstores... er (will that still be the case?) will be front-and-center for at least a good month or two and will give good sales. But what about libraries? Do libraries want a Valentine's book? Is that of any use? I've never bothered to try a holiday book because I don't think it's worth my effort, but that's just one author's opinion.
