Activity Update and Winner of FIRESPELL

UPDATE: just realized I had the title of the book all wrong. Can I use the excuse that it was really late in the year? Yanno, like it was the Friday afternoon of 2011? *sigh*

Boy, I'm late on this award. Sorry. Christmas season does tend to sap all the marrow out of life time out of the evenings, doesn't it?

Here's the short-list of the activities I've engaged in over the last week:

  • Adult Christmas Part-ay for church
  • Authors' Advisory Conference call with Jessica Day George--you totally need to check it out
  • Scout Pack caroling at the local nursing home--I flubbed up and had everyone meet at the church at the time we were supposed to be there, so I took my two scouts on ahead and we were the opening act. Those ladies were so cool!
  • Baking treats for work Christmas Party
  • Put my crabby self to bed and took a nap!
  • Christmas Shopping
  • Christmas Program for the 1st and 3rd grades--how convenient that I have one of each.
  • Lotsa reading to combat the Christmas blues--just finished my 101st book for the year. :) :) Happier now.
Best thing to do when feeling all Bah-Humbug? Give stuff away! Which is why I'm pleased to announce that the winner of CATSPELL FIRESPELL is....

Congrats, Skie! Email me (see my "Stalk Me" tab) and I'll pass your info on to Danyelle's husband. If I don't hear from you by the 23rd, I'm giving your book to someone else. :)

UPDATE: Sorry, Skie, but I don't have your email addy and I haven't heard from you. The new winner is:

David, I know how to contact you, so I'll be getting your info to Danyelle's husband. :) Congrats!


  1. Whoa. Busy girl. 101 books? Dang, I wish could read as fast as you!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. 101 is nothing, Donna. Two years ago I read over 170 books in a year. Ah the things we give up to have time to write.

  3. "Christmas Program for the 1st and 3rd grades--how convenient that I have one of each."

    LOL! I remember those days! Congrats to Skie (what a pretty name, right?).

    Robin, I just wanted to say how happy I am we met this year, and I hope the new year brings you much success in the world of publishing! Happy Holidays!

  4. Happy holidays, Robyn! And thanks so very much for your help with my query.
