You know, I may well be one of the few people on the planet who likes snow. Of course, that’s because I don’t go anywhere in it! Nope, I just get to enjoy it from my hearthroom window while my gas fireplace is blazing, beautifully aglow with greenery, twinkle lights and red velvet stockings.
But when I got up this morning and took this picture of the fresh-fallen snow in my backyard, “beautiful” wasn’t the first word that come to mind. It was more like, “YIKES … Christmas Eve is only TEN DAYS AWAY!!” Well, if you’re anything like me, you may have your decorations up, but presents are not completely purchased and wrapped, nor are the marble-fudge cheesecakes baked for my Christmas party tonight.
So … since neither you nor I have any extra time to read blogs at this juncture, I am pulling another “blue moon” with a short Journal Jot post so that YOU and I can get some things done.
BUT … before I go to clean, bake, and wrap presents, here are some things going on that you might want to know about:
WHOO-HOO!!! Dare to Love Again is NOW available!! Scheduled for a January 1 release, the latest book in The Heart of San Francisco series has ALREADY SHIPPED FROM AMAZON to tons of pre-order customers. SO if you’re looking to gift yourself or someone else, why not consider a sweet and funny story about a stick-wielding socialite and a grouchy Italian police detective? My very first review is a five-star from April that says, “Dare to Love Again is sweetly exciting and such a wonderful story!” Here’s the link, and if you need a signed bookplate, just let me know, and I’ll send you one! CLICK HERE for Dare to Love Again.
I NEED YOUR HELP!! Love at Any Cost is currently up for The Book Club Network Book of the Year, so if you read it and liked it, I hope you’ll consider voting for me OR your favorite author, okay? And if you do vote, I’ll give you extra points in the Rafflecopter box of the Video Contest at the end of this blog whether you vote for me or not. Here’s the link and THANK YOU!!
Okay, that’s it for now, so go forth and shop … bake … clean … wrap … and enjoy family!!

One Woman. Two Men.
One stirs her pulse and the other her faith.
