Good morning, all!

It's truly winter weather here today with highs at about 8. Yep, eight degrees. Brrr! We've just had about 10 inches of snow with more expected today and tomorrow -- hopefully not another 10, lol. I have to admit I don't like winter, don't like the cold or the snow or the ice but it is a pretty sight...if you don't have to go out in it.

Unfortunately I do. Our snowblower needs a visit to the snowblower doctor and I've got some other errands to run. Snow, cold, goes on, n'est pa?

I have two announcements today. One, in particular, is special to my family since it's my daughter's birthday. She is the very best pre-Christmas present I ever received and is the darling of her mother and father's heart Yes, we're doting parents, lol. Happy Birthday, kiddo!

The other announcement is that I have sold my book, Heartstone, to Mundania Press. You may remember Heartstone -- it was a RWA Golden Heart finalist as well as a finalist in a number of other contests. And it was available for a short while at Triskelion Publishing. I don't have all the details yet but as they come in, I'll be sure to let you know.

In the meantime, to give you a respite in shopping or baking or decorating, I offer a few pics I found on the Internet. Enjoy.

Luckily, none of these cute little animals are my Wookie or Zuzu (who have their own attitudes :-D) but they do provide a moment of mirth before we all get back to shopping or baking or decorating for the holidays.

Again, I hope your holidays are fantastic and that you're surrounded by family and friends, good food and a warm house. See you next year!

I'd offer congrats, but be careful - word on the street is that Mundania is WAY behind on putting books out, over a year behind!

Not to mention the problems of POD publishing - no bookstore placement, no distribution... but if it works for you, good luck!!!
