Happy Sunday, my Darlings! I hope you had a good week & are having an even better weekend.
So this week, the good news is that INHERITING HIS SECRET CHRISTMAS BABY is finally HERE!!!
Watch for a big, splashy official launch party here in The Dungeon on Tuesday, December 7th, the book’s official release date, but also know that XMAS BABY is available already. It’s showing up as available in both paperback & e-book form at Amazon.com & BN.com, as well as several other online retailers, & I’ve also gotten reports that it’s showing up in Wal-Marts & bookstores already.
So if you’re out shopping this weekend, keep your eyes peeled & grab your copy of my contribution to Silhouette Desire’s “Dynasties: The Jarrods.” (Or you can order it, of course, from the aforementioned Amazon.com or BN.com.) I promise that even if you haven’t read any of the other “Jarrods” books, you will find Trevor & Haylie’s story quite satisfying all on its own! :love
On top of that, I have been happily & successfully getting all of my agent & editor gifts together. Hanukkah fell really early this year, so there was some hustle involved in that one for Agent Extraordinaire. And I want to be sure to get the Christmas ones out soon, too, so they arrive before all of the publishing offices start to close for the holidays. (I can’t tell you what I’m sending, though, or it might ruin the surprised for the intended recipients, who may even now be reading this post. :stalker )
I have also been working on…sung to the tune of “The Twelve Pains of Christmas”… sending Christmas cards! Granted, I don’t do many, but the few I am sending need to get in the mail, too.
No special holiday stamps this year, though…I am still buying & proudly using the “Adopt a Shelter Pet” stamps only.
Are you? :dog
Last but not least, I have been writing, writing, writing. I’m farther behind on my deadline for MUST LOVE VAMPIRES than I’d like, but I’m working on it. (The holidays are just so darn hectic, even if I don’t expect them to be. :stinky ) I just finished a really good, really hot love scene, though, & am typing as fast as I can!
So how about the rest of you?
What happy events took place in your lives this week?
And so far, do the holidays have you feeling festive & chipper :xmastree …or frazzled & frantic :cry ?
My bad! I very nearly forgot to announce this week’s Free Book Friday winner! :whhhat So let me rectify that now:
:dancing Victoria CK!!! :dancing
Congratulations, Victoria! Please contact me with your full name & mailing address, & I will get your copy of 365 Days of Sensational Sex out to you. Use it carefully. :yougogirl

Not much has changed. Still looking for a job but leads are popping up again. I am blessed to have my family and friends, both those I’ve known for years or those at various sites I visit. I am blessed to have such great people.

Betcha you land something after the holidays, Dee, if not before. This time of year always slows down, makes folks groggy & slow. But come January, they’ll perk up & go, “Hey, we need somebody for…” & you’ll be in like Flint. :winkwink

The Animal Rescue stamps are so awesome, Mary. When they first came out, they were advertising that a portion of the proceeds from their purchase went to shelters, too. (Ellen DeGeneres was big on promoting these & had something to do with that, I believe.) Not sure if they’re still doing that, but I hope so. And since it’s all about the animals with me, I’ve been buying them in bulk & using them exclusively. Even if the cost of postage goes up, I’ll keep using them till they run out & just tack on a 2-cent or whatever. LOL :kitty
