Happy New Year and...

...Happy Birthday to me! 

Yep, today is my birthday. As the years pile up, gifts become less and less important to me, but this year, I have two that take the cake.
  • My dearest John bought me a Kindle Paperwhite to replace my Kindle 3. He did buy it in November, but I knew it was my birthday gift. ;-)
  • My good blogging buddy, Charlotte Rains Dixon, writing teacher, coach, and author, gifted me with a 25 page critique. It's due to her today. And I'm excited to get her feedback.
BTW, if you haven't read Charlotte's EMMA JEAN'S BAD BEHAVIOR, you should check it out.  Also check out my interview of Charlotte HERE.

January is a busy month. Not only am I trying to fill in all the last holes in FRIENDLY FIRE, but I'm also a co-Program Coordinator for the Write-A-Thin at Women's Fiction Writers Association.

I hope your new year is going well. May all your resolutions be achieved and may you be happy, healthy, and rested. ;-)

And brrrrr! It's only 5 this morning here in Georgia--the coldest it's been in decades. Bundle up, folks!

Announcement!!!!

 

A CHRISTMAS WALK, DEVOTIONS FOR ADVENT and AN EASTER WALK are now available as ebooks at Amazon
Check this out. And this.
Needless to say, I'm excited. ;-)

  4. I am finally able to get into your blog; for some reason every time I have tried in the past week or so, I would get a "page cannot be found" message. Not sure what that was all about. Congrats!! I know you are so excited to have your books on Amazon!

    1. Thanks for the persistence, Janet! I'm excited by the Amazon listings. They're supposed to be on all ebook sites in the future.

  5. Happy birthday month! I heard that a couple of days ago was the first time ever that every US State (well, maybe not Hawaii) was below zero at the same time!

    1. Thank you, Deniz! Yes, Hawaii too! They said there was snow on the ground of all 50 states. Though the thought of FL with snow is bizarre to me!
