Eat Your Heart Out, Martha Stewart!

Frustrated by the apparent lack of holiday doo-dads in our house, my daughter Natty took it upon herself to decorate the living room. She made paper snowflakes, paper chains, curling ribbons, and printed up Santas from the web. I'm not sure what a rubber band ball has to do with Christmas, but it's an interesting look. She's so helpful!

In other news.....

❅ GOOD NEWS: Both Sweet Magik and Sweet Inspiration are on the top 10 romance bestseller list at Fictionwise. It's a Klaus Brother invasion!

❅ BAD NEWS: My good friend Julia Barrett has had some catastrophic problems with her website. Evidently, everything on her site has disappeared. She has no idea what happened. It's heart-breaking. She had four years worth of blog posts there, including some of my favorite serial posts about her canoe trip. If you are so inclined, please drop Julia a message on twitter to wish her well.

❅ GOOD NEWS: I got a great fan letter yesterday, from a woman who is a Barnes and Noble employee. She loved my books and is recommending them to her customers. Thanks, Michelle!

❅ BAD NEWS: 20 days until Christmas and I haven't started my shopping yet! Ahhhhh!

❅ BOOK NEWS: Carolyn Crane's new book Head Rush it out today! Carolyn is one of the most talented up-and-coming authors I know. I am sure this book is going to kick ass.

Also, my Secret Santa at the Refugees Goodreads group got me Heart Of Steel by Meljean Brook....woo hoo! I cannot wait to read this. Thank you, Secret Santa, whoever you are!

Finally, I am about to read yet another holiday romance....Mistletoe and Margaritas by Shannon Stacey. Once I finish, I am going to post a holiday reading list with my top recommendations.

Happy Tuesday To Everyone!
