A Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukah/Merry Kwanzaa/Happy Everything Else giveaway to everyone. I’m posting a day early this week so as not to interrupt any Christmas festivities tomorrow. Since this month has been All About Emily, I’m giving away MORE copies of the Earth to Emily (Emily #2) audiobook.

EARTH TO EMILY final audio

Next week we’re headed to Palm Springs for me to speak to the Palm Springs Writers Guild, and I hope we’ll have some desert hike snaps to share. For now, though, we’re still in snow-kissed Angel Fire, New Mexico, where it is so snow-kissed, in fact, that we’re going to have to leave early to beat the worst of the storms. By the time you read this, we’ll be headed southeast. We’ve had a ball though, humans and animals. Here’s Georgia showing off her snow-shoes (can you see how she spreads her toes in the snow?). She also used those toes to contact Siri on my phone just now as I was typing, LOL. That’s what I get for leaving it on the floor.


We were shocked by how much our nearly-hairless Petey loved the snow. He generally stayed out of the deep stuff. I am sure you can see why.IMG_9135

He was also the champion snuggler of the trip, seen below with Clark Kent and Allie.


I’ve been working on a New Year’s surprise for you guys while we’ve been here, with the help of cover artist extraordinaire Heidi and publishing assistant nonpareil Bobbye. It’s a box set of mystery-thriller-suspense novels from four of our SkipJack Publishing authors, priced WAY below their combined retail price. In fact, to sweeten the deal, we threw in a bonus novel. Our Murder, They Wrote will be available by January 1st, e-book only, exclusively on Amazon Kindle for now.

Don’t be surprised if I have some exciting Emily news to share next month as well. 😉
