I don’t know where you are this week, but around here, it’s rainy & cold & the leaves are changing at a rapid rate. Fall is definitely settling in for the long-haul.
This week I AM HAPPY to announce two great prize winners! (See below.) One for my “Vamps in Vegas” Giveaway, the other for an autographed copy of my brand new paranormal romance, MUST LOVE VAMPIRES as part of our Free Book Friday giveaway. :showgirl
And of course, I AM HAPPY that MUST LOVE VAMPIRES is finally here! It’s out, it’s available, it’s showing up in stores & mailboxes everywhere! Whoo-hoo! :dancingbat So excited about this, I can barely tell you! Thank you to everyone who’s run out to buy a copy…or ordered it online…or pre-ordered it so it would show up the very day of release… And those of you who have already read it & are talking it up online, leaving positive reviews, etc. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :spidey
I AM HAPPY that ONE LAST BITE (an epilogue to Must Love Vampires) is finally showing up on Amazon. Of course, they’re charging 99 cents for it—long story; don’t ask & I’ll explain in a little more detail later—so if you want it FREE the way I intended, be sure to get a copy at Smashwords or B&N.com instead.
By the way, if you read ONE LAST BITE (an epilogue to Must Love Vampires) & enjoy it, please consider leaving a positive review for it on B&N.com. I’ve gotten some low ratings & one snotty review for the epilogue simply because people did not listen to me! when I told them not to read it until after they’d read MUST LOVE VAMPIRES. Of course, you’re going to think it’s stupid & has no plot & makes no sense if you read it as a stand-alone. Duh! :face
I AM HAPPY, too, that THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is being reissued this week! More news about that coming soon, but suffice to say it came out last October in trade size paperback, & this October it’s coming out in mass market (that’s the regular size *g*) paperback.
And last but not least…in a surprisingly non-My New Releases-related “happy” :coffin …I AM HAPPY that I finally finished reading Incubus Dreams by Laurell K. Hamilton. Book #12 in the “Anita Blake” series—which I’m definitely behind on & kinda, sorta pretend to try to catch up on once in a while—& I suspect the longest of the bunch at 650+ pages. Took me two months to get through it, but I’m happy I did. And equally happy to have it out of the way.
Now the question becomes… What do I read next? :eyeseeyou
Your turn! Tell us what you’re happy & grateful & delighted about this week so we can all do a Happy Little Vampire (Bat) Dance! :dancingbat

When I looked outside this morning, there was snow on the ground. SNOW! In October! WTF? It’s melted now, but is still cold & slushy. Blech.

Congrats to the winners!!!
It’s absolutely gorgeous here today and I’m about to take my youngest two to pick pumpkins and get me some fresh veggies!!! (LOVE this time of year for that!).
My oldest passed his medical exam yesterday for Air National Guard. We just have to wait now for the Air Force to approve some stuff (jobs) before the official signing and swearing in. He’s got a terrific recruiter who won’t let him sign anything until he gets my son the job my son wants. Hopefully we will know something in a week or so.
After pumpkin picking, it’s homework time. I’m just about half way through my training and only have a couple of things (besides class time) to do and both are “homework” type things.

Boy, we’re being pelted with some interesting spam lately. Not sure why the net isn’t catching it, either. So if you see anything weird or offensive, rest assured it *will* be removed as soon as I notice & can grab one of Mistress Heidi’s handy-dandy whips! :elvira
