Vacation Week: Reading, Writing & The Ultimate Easy Bake Oven

We have now entered.....the post-December 25th phase of the year. Which means....I'm done!

Any and all promotional events pertaining to the sales and dissemination of the Klaus Brothers Series have officially ceased.

Cause, let's face it....no one wants to read about Santa and the North Pole after Christmas is over. And that's fine with me. I'm freakin' exhausted.

I would just like to say.......


.....to everyone who bought my book, read my book, discussed my book, sent me fan emails (hee hee! so cool!), wrote reviews about my book, left messages for me on Facebook, recommended my book to their friends, and all of you who have been supportive, wonderful and generally cool.

God bless winter vacation week! Lots of reading, relaxing, and wasting time cooking minuscule baked goods in the Ultimate Easy Bake Oven (Natty's favorite xmas gift!)

On the reading horizon....

✵ Just finished reading Cathryn Parry's debut Harly novel, Something To Prove. A solid debut, emotional story. Review coming soon.

✵ Started reading Snow Job, a holiday erotica by Delphine Dryden. I won this in a giveaway...looks cute!

✵ TBR this week.... The Heart Of A Hero by Barbara Wallace. It has a weenie dog in it! Yippee!

✵ Also on the TBR pile....Where the Heart Leads by Stephanie Laurens. I actually read this a while ago, but I'm re-reading it and reviewing it for my new project, called The Penelope Project. I am reading books with heroines named Penelope. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

Happy Day!

I loved the Easy Bake oven as a kid. :) Have fun and enjoy that vacation.

Hi Amber! Nat is so excited that she can "bake" on her own...she feels very independent. Even though the baked goods are the size of a pea. hee hee

I'm with Amber. I loved my Easy Bake Oven, which they have since redesigned so kids don't get burned. You've had such a busy Christmas!
I kind of wish I was there instead of here...

Penny Watson said...

Julia.....Me, too...come on over! We can bake miniscule cupcakes in the Easy Bake Oven!

Sounds like you had a great Christmas! I always wanted an easy bake oven but mom never let me have one because she said I'd burn the house down. She's probably right.

By the way, you are on my list:

I beg to differ -- I bought my first Klaus Brothers book in July, because, let's face it...good is good regardless of the season and I got sucked in. The worst part was it was still four months for the next one to come out.

@Geek....OK, let me re-phrase that. MOST people don't want to read about Santa after Christmas. And for those delightful folks who DO want to read about the Klaus Brothers....God bless you! I know the pubbing industry is pushing for this Xmas in July thing, but honestly, I need my summer vacation! :^)
