First of all, an apology about going AWOL on Friday. Minor emergency kept me away from the blog. However, I can now announce the winner of last Thursday’s Giveaway of VIOLET IN PRIVATE: ANGIE, at Comment #29!
Congratulations! Email me for your prize.
I want to say that it’s been a very busy time around here, but I’m beginning to wonder if there is any time that isn’t anymore. I feel like I’ve been going non-stop for months. It’s all I can do to keep the balls in the air, and of course, I’m still playing catch-up from being sick for most of November. (Seriously, guys, let us not discuss housecleaning at the moment.) Sailor Boy and I did go shopping this weekend, though, and we’re a few steps closer to actually furnishing our house now. I am madly in love with our new furniture. It’s the first stuff we’ve ever really bought together that wasn’t like “we need a bookshelf, let’s pick up a pile of pre-fab shelves from IKEA.” I’ve had this silly stupid grin on my face all weekend, traipsing from store to store in the snow in a tiny mountain town filled with antique shops… I feel very old married coupley… and I like it.
I’m also getting very excited for Christmas. This is the first Christmas I’m hosting at my house, and I feel like I have a lot to live up to. My mother throws an amazing Christmas — great food, great decorations, great collection of Christmas movies on the TV…
Last week I also turned in the page proofs for Rampant, and saw a final cover for Tap & Gown (which is still scheduled for release in May, despite changes at my publisher).
My books are still trucking along on their way to publication!
And then, and then, here’s a secret: I started a new project. I’m so excited about it. More on that later.
For a more coherent (hopefully) post by me, check out today’s Romancing the Blog.
Speaking of Christmas… today’s giveaway is very special. Like a Christmas present, it’s a surprise: a box o’books. I’m doing inventory in my house and giving away huge piles of books. They are most likely romance novels, but there may be a few surprises in there. leave a comment now!
