Celebrate the Small Things - Potpourii Edition


Hi everyone!  How was your week?  Not so bad, here.  In fact, I have a lot of little things to celebrate, which makes for an overall great week! :)

In no particular order...

1) I finished my edits for my May release, KILLER EXPOSURE (available for pre-order now!).  My editor reviewed and approved them (yay!), so now I get one more pass over the manuscript before it goes to the presses!

2) Mister and I are going to hang out with some friends tonight.  We haven't seen them in ages, and I'm really looking forward to catching up with them.

3) I've reached the point in the semester where my students are all giving their presentations.  It's kind of nice to be able to sit back and listen for a change!

4) I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping!  I'm trying really hard to finish soon, because I just don't want to set foot in the mall during December.  Who's with me?

5) We got a the lightest dusting of snow this past weekend.  It was lovely to look at, and thankfully it melted in a matter of minutes.  My heart goes out to the people of Buffalo--there is no way I could survive that kind of weather!  I'm a Texas girl, through and through.

So that's my good stuff for the week.  What about you?  How are things in your world?

If you've been reading my blog, you know that Fridays are reserved for a post where I celebrate the little things that have happened during the week.

Celebrate the Small Things - Better late than never edition!


Apologies to all--it's been a crazy couple of weeks, and I'm just now getting to sit down and update my sadly neglected blog.

But let's not dwell on that when we have fun things to celebrate!  I'm participating in the Readers & Ritas conference in Allen, Texas.  It's sponsored by Fresh Fiction, and I'm having a blast!  I've met so many new readers and fellow authors, and it's been a ton of fun.  This is my first year going, but I'm definitely going to make a habit of it!
I'm also celebrating getting my edits back for my May release, KILLER EXPOSURE.  I know a lot of authors dread having to do edits, but I like to think of it as a chance to make the book better, and I appreciate the fact that I have this opportunity.  My deadline is a little tight, but that just means I have to work smarter!

What are you celebrating this week?

Celebrate the Small Things - Pumpkin edition

***BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN TO ENTER IN MY OCTOBER GIVEAWAY!  I've got lots of FREE BOOKS up for grabs!***

Congrats on making it through another week!  I'm about halfway through the semester, and I must admit, it's starting to wear on me.  Fortunately, I have two days to rest up and work on finishing my book, which is due on Monday!  Eeek!

This week, I'm celebrating that I get to help my Mom on Saturday.  She's a member of a charity that paints pumpkins as a fall fundraiser.  I usually help them paint, but my schedule didn't allow for that this year.  I do get to help them during the sale, which is on Saturday.  They've done a great job (as always) and it will be fun to help them sell their creations.  The money goes to help pediatric cancer patients, so it's a win-win all around.  Take a look at some of their work:
















































Which one is your favorite?  What are you celebrating this week?

When Thomas's niece is abducted, the stakes become dangerously higher as Claire insists he trade her for the child.
