Okay, so technically it’s Christmas eve morning, but you get the drift.It’s still early enough I’m the only creature stirring in this household. This past week has been a busy one between work, writing, and preparing for Santa’s visit.
My daughter, son-in-law, and grand daughter live with me, and I really appreciate that fact around the holidays. The munchkin is 9 years old and is tottering over the edge where she no longer believes in Santa. I think she’s figured it out, but isn’t prepared to say it out loud. That’s fine with me. I’ll keep sending her videos of Santa giving her personal messages, and I’ll continue to leave pictures laying around on Christmas morning of Santa delivering presents in our living room. PNP (Portable North Pole) Santa and Capture the Magic are awesome sites if you still have small ones at home.
Even with all the holiday activity, I managed to finish my short story. I thought about pulling out another one I had already started on, but decided to hold off for now. I’m going to relax and enjoy some family time.
In three more days, Eternal Embrace goes to the editor/cover artist. I’m excited, and a little on the nervous side. I’m excited about the new cover, and nervous about what the editing side is going to reveal. Regardless, I’m anxious to get Embrace ready for publication.
I’ve also spent a lot of time working on swag for my event in January. I’ve got enough bookmarks and keyrings made for the next three events, so I’m pretty sure I’m set. I’ve got more than enough copies of Phoenix Rising and all the other paraphernalia that goes into a book event. The rest lies with the crowd. I’m hoping for the best; we’re talking Comic Con and cos play. Paranormal fits right in there. 😉
With that said, I’m going to head to the kitchen and start on prep work. Christmas dinner will be at my house, and there’s still a lot to do.
Have a very Merry Christmas, and if Christmas isn’t your thing, I hope you enjoy the holiday season regardless.
Till next week,
