Happy Halloween!

Seems kind of fitting that I’m working on a ghostly haunted house story this Halloween.  I suppose it will be less fitting if I’m still working on it by the time, say, Valentine’s Day rolls around, but maybe I can figure out a way to work in a spooky winged cherub if that happens.  Might be the first of its kind… a new niche!

I thought I’d take a break from haunted houses and ghostly mysteries long enough to wish you all a happy Halloween, though.  So… Happy Halloween! Here’s to happy and safe trick-or-treating, and to put you in the right mood for all those cutie pies in costumes who will be showing up at your door tonight, here’s a nice little dose of Halloween cuteness:

And now I must return to my writing cave and get back to work on…The Bloodline!  Muahahahahaha!

(That was supposed to be evil laughter, just in case that part wasn’t clear.)

Have a happy holiday!

Do You Know What’s Just Around The Corner?

Christmas is coming…

I know this because the local stores have had Christmas displays up since September.  They used to wait until Halloween was over to do that, and then they started putting decorations out for both holidays simultaneously in early October, but this is the first year I’ve noticed them doing it in September.  I’m betting it won’t be too many more years until we see red-nosed reindeer next to chocolate bunnies, or even Cupids flitting above candy canes.

You know what else is coming?  Release day for my Christmas novella…

PastelsandJingleBells 200x300-1

November 1st!  That is, assuming I formatted everything correctly for KDP on Amazon and Nook Press for Barnes & Noble.  Heh heh.  Formatting…software…erk.  Is anyone else finding it hard to breathe, or is that just me?

On the plus side, I came across a kind of preliminary review of Pastels and Jingle Bells on Rookie Romance, and although the actual review hasn’t been written up yet, the blogger reviewing it (Hi, Cerian!) said it was, “…very sweet and just what I was in the mood for.”

Yay!

Now hurry up and finish putting up those Christmas decorations before Trick-or-Treaters start showing up…
