We have winners! Congratulations to Kessika, Tracy, Sandra, Connie, and Sherry, winner of the FIVE silver fox pendants inspired by Emily! Each pendant is lovingly handcrafted by the incomparable Anita Shultz of Jewelweed Sprouts, who I guarantee creates MaGiC that will enhance their intuition. You can read about more of her work that has made its way into my jewelry box, here. You can also learn more about (or buy yourself) a little foxy loxy or other something-something HERE.
Congratulations to Christina and Patricia, too, winners of the signed Emily novels in the Lone Star Literary giveaway.
You’ll be elated to hear that we are back to our regularly scheduled blog programming next week, leaving the launch of Hell to Pay behind us. Meanwhile, I’ve finished the first draft of a prequel novella that all my blog and newsletter subscribers will get, free, this fall, and I’ve starting the rewrite of Going by the Book, the next Michele mystery in the What Doesn’t Kill You series. I got new author portraits shot, which will hopefully be good so I’ll quit seeing the same dang pictures of my mug everywhere on the internet. I’ve traveled to NOLA with my husband, marveled over sunsets and wildflowers, enjoyed small town roadhouse fun, been sent a true throwback Thursday pick from a college roommate, and learned to appreciate Louise for her snake alerting skills. And our little Peyton Manning got “de-manned” and became Omaha. Here’s some visual proof. Enjoy the short video of the dogs and Omaha “guarding” me on our jog.
