Sliding Into Home

Yes, I know it's still November, and I'm  not supposed to be here until next week, but you guys know me by now. I can't stay away. I miss everyone too much.

I'm almost finished with the old house. Yay. It's about damn time too. One "big" and one "small" thing left to tackle and then I'm home free. Or perhaps I should say, free of the home. Gah, this thing is an albatross around my neck. (an expression I don't quite understand, but it's useful here.)

Trying to work on the latest novel. Halfway through, and if you'd like to take a gander at how real life ends up in my books, you can find that here.

Spent almost the whole Thanksgiving Day raking and blowing leaves in my mother's back yard. Kept me busy and burned off all the calories I ate during dinner. So yay.

Gearing up for the Monster's Birthday next Sunday. She'll be 8, thinks she's 19. I cannot believe she's going to be 8. I mean, really, where did the time go? I can't help think what's going to happen in 8 more years when she turns 16 and wants a car for Christmas. This year she's getting a laptop. (My mother bought it for her.) Think she's spoiled? Definitely spoiled. Rotten. I don't even have a laptop.

Spent the weekend on the computer doing stuff (because I overdid it raking on Thursday), got over to Goodreads, LinkedIn, even managed to Tweet on Sunday. It's been too long since I've done any of that so I'm glad I had the chance to finally catch up.

Okay, enough about me. What about you? How are your NaNo numbers? How was your Turkey Day? Did you get your Christmas shopping done?

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

On a day that is known to millions across the United States as one for which we are to give thanks and be grateful for what we have....

I would like to say Thank You to all of you, who have helped me, guided me, shored me up, beta read for me, listened to my blabbering, held my hand when things went awry, praised me, gave me great reviews, bought my books, and have been there for me throughout my publishing journey.

I am so eternally GRATEFUL to ALL of YOU! I could not have done any of this without you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
