Happy Almost Christmas!

To those who celebrate...Happy Almost Christmas!! Ever since I was a kid, Christmas Eve has always felt almost magical to me. It's a day of excitement, hope and good spirit. My eldest kids eagerly put their gifts under the tree this morning for us, each other and the little ones. And then immediately asked if they should take them back in case Santa thinks we already have enough gifts and decides not to leave any more LOL! I love to see them so happy, so excited, so full of life and love :).

Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, or if you celebrate nothing at all, best wishes to you and your family. Here's to a new year filled with health, happiness and productivity! I've planned 2012 to be a key year for me writing-wise. I plan to ramp up my writing output, open up some new avenues, get my books a wider distribution and try out some new things, including some longer lengths. I hope you'll join me!

Stay safe, consume much and laugh loud with those you love and who love you!

Stuff Your Stockings Christmas Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Stuff Your Stockings Christmas Blog Hop! This is an amazing event with so many authors participating and so many great prizes. Thanks to the wonderful Drea for organizing it :). For those of you who might land here and don't know me, I write hot and steamy romance...with an emphasis on hot. My stories have tough alpha heroes who might be a little rough and rugged around the edges, but when they fall for the heroine? Man, they fall hard. They'd do anything, endure anything, sacrifice anything. For her. Sigh...

So what am I giving away? I'm giving away a $25 dollar gift card to an online book store (winner's choice) AND a copy of any 1 book from my ebook backlist! Not bad, right?

How can you win? Follow me, friend me or follow this blog and leave a comment here telling me what you enjoy most about the holidays! I'll select a random commenter from this post as the winner!

So it's my birthday & I'll give away stuff if I want to...

So what am I doing to celebrate? You had to ask LOL. I have to rush my daughter to the dentist this morning. She lost a filling yesterday. I was at the doctors office myself yesterday (5 hour door-2-door trip) and he gave me the wonderful news that I have bronchitis and possibly phemonia. Sigh... I'll be getting a chest x-ray early this afternoon. I'm OK with taking my clothes off on my birthday, more than, but for an x-ray? :) I could have done without that. I also have air conditioner repair men under foot all day at the house. One of our units completely broke down and they need to rebuild it. For 4 hours! Thousands of dollars worth of repairs. So thankful I had the forsight to buy an extended warranty plan for it. And to top it all off, tonight it's my daughter's Girl Scout court of awards so we'll be rounding out the evening with s'mores and hot chocolate. Of course it will probably reach 80 degrees here today so not exactly the welcome snack it could be. I live an exciting life, don't I? I really know how to celebrate in style, yes? You probably wish you too could have this much fun on your birthday!

Anyway, it is my birthday but I thought I'd turn the tables and be the one giving away stuff! Through 11:59 pm Eastern tomorrow (cause I'm hoping tomorrow will be better, MUCH better), I'll pick a commenter on this blog to win either a signed copy of my print anthology OR any 3 of my ebooks. Winners choice. Not bad, right?

You can leave a random comment or tell me what's the best or worst birthday (or present) you ever had! GO!
