Archive for December, 2009


Well, the new year is zooming in on us and I’m ready for the clean slate, so to speak.  You know, a new year and a new start.  So, for 2010 I’m setting the bar high and I’m going to leap that sucker! 

Or limbo right the heck underneath 😉 

All joking aside, I do have big plans for 2010!  I have a brand new manuscript that I’m finishing up right now and I *will* have it spit shined and sent out to agents and editors alike this coming year!  I’ve already hit 70k words (my longest yet) and think it will finish just under 80k so I will be in the right word count for the big dogs.  That’s right: New York, here I come!  How about the height of THAT bar???  Yup, I’m shoving myself out there again and I’m actually kind of excited this time.

So, what are your goals for the coming year?

Merry Christmas


Yup, I said the words.  I said, “Merry Christmas” and I meant it!  *gasp* I don’t mean it as a sentiment that it is the only season this time of year either.  I know that not everyone on the face of the earth, or even in my little town for that matter, celebrates Christmas and I don’t expect everyone to either (not that I wouldn’t love it if everyone did!).  My point of this blog post is my hope that those of us who do celebrate it can enjoy our day…or month, as it has somehow spread from Thanksgiving on through December 25.  I don’t want anyone to get mad at me for smiling and wishing them a Merry Christmas.  I just want them to smile back and wish me the same with the season they celebrate if they aren’t like minded.  If someone is in the middle of their Yule Tide, I’d love to be wished a Happy Yule.  If Hanukkah is their thing, same goes.  Kwanzaa?  Ditto.  I hope you get my point here.  Christmas is an age old tradition and part of what this country was founded on.  America is indeed the land of the free and that means that everyone is free to celebrate whatever season they want to this time of year or any other time for that matter.  So, Merry Christmas everyone, from my house to yours!

Sorry about the Sally Fields enthusiasm, but this is really what I needed!  I’ve been back and forth to the hospital for tests, poking, prodding (no, I didn’t enjoy any of the prodding, thankyouverymuch), and torture of all sorts, so imagine my surprise and utter happiness to see a great review show up in my email???  I mean, it has been almost 10 months since the book came out so I’d pretty much given up hope 🙂

Mary at www.bittenbybooks.com gave it five stars (well, they use tombstones there since they are a paranormal site, but you get the picture) and said, “I loved this book! There are several pleasant twists on the way. This is a definite must-read for any time-traveling romantics.”  You can read the whole review here!  YAY! and I’m so glad she loved it.
