I’ve even gotten a few of those holiday romance stories to read. Check out Under the Christmas Tree by Drea Riley and Nikki Winter for a hot, steamy romance that makes you laugh out loud. And, well, to be honest… I loved the food porn in it. Yes, I am a food-o-phile. I used to watch Food Network not to teach me how to cook (although I did get a few tips), but to salivate over all the food I’ll never make.
In other news, I did really mean to write posts and stuff, but got very ill the Monday after Thanksgiving. This week is the first week I feel like Christmas. I love Christmas. While I was sick, my dad and son decorated for me… because they wanted to make me feel better. They did a bang up job of it, too!
In writing news, a long time ago, right after Dragon’s Champion was published, I wrote a funky Cinderella tale. Handwritten. I loved it. I lost it. My son, the curious genius, found the notebook last weekend. I’ve been furiously re-typing, editing, etc this past week. I hope to send it off by Monday. I have another short story that I submitted to an anthology, and I really hope that one gets in. If it does, I just might have a story side by side with Rie Sheridan Rose, my writing mentor and very dear friend. (She’s the one who kept after me through all the long, lonely time when I wouldn’t let my imaginary friends come out and play! Thanks Rie!)
And then there’s the story that I’m setting right here, in my area. A witch, a vampire and a ghost are best friends…. And even though it seems as if it’s going to be more a series of shorts (I don’t know what happened to my novel gene, it must be recessed at the moment), there was a call for just this sort of story, at just the word count I can sustain… so YAY ME!
Things are starting to click together, and I’m very happy about that. It’s a very joyous thing when you realize that other people love the things you create, too.
May you find all the joy of the season, and of creating or visiting worlds of wonder through out the year.
(I have SO MANY BOOKS to review and catch up on, I don’t know where to start!)
