The Premium Press America website is finally live! Not all links work, but you can noodle around in the Romance section and check me out!
Currently, A Year and A Day is the featured Romance title! Come check me out!
And have you posted your review on Amazon yet? This holiday downtime is a GREAT chance to catch up on reading and reviewing! I know I did! I think I posted two long-overdue reviews this week and I still have one more yet to go.
And even if you don't want to leave a review, or don't feel that you really have the time to write one, you can vote on the "usefulness" of those who have reviewed before you!
I hope everyone is enjoying the 12 Days of Christmas. I love them, myself, but I can do without the waterfowl.
A little bit of 12 Days trivia...if you got each of the items mentioned in the song you would receive 81 gifts.
BUT if you got each item mentioned in the song EACH TIME it was mentioned...that makes 364 presents!
That's a lot of partridges and pear trees!

Whether you celebrate, or not, I hope everyone is having a magical day today! And I hope that Santa left YOU something special, too!
Me, I choose to take a bit of on Eponine route...Matt and I had quite the Solstice party with creole pasta (not the least bit traditional, but eh...details!) and a bottle of fabulous Shiraz red wine. We couldn't stay up to meet the sunrise of a new year (damn day jobs!!)...but we did enjoy the quiet joy of the longest night and in the style of the Kushiel books of of our friend, fellow author Jacqueline Carey, we wished one another joie!
And here it is, Christmas morning and I am back in my beloved California. After a whirlwind of European-style feasting, revelry, and gifts last night, I have come home to my childhood house to the traditional day-after presents and cookies for breakfast with my parents. Well, with my Dad. My Mom is a nurse so she is at work today, bringing Christmas cheer to the entirety of the hospital, I am sure! She is a little Eponine-like, herself! But she'll be joining us for Christmas dinner, which will be much more subdued than the delightful chaos of last night and will round out the two-day event that Christmas has always been in my family.
So, have a merry day everyone. Good luck and good cheer! I drink to you, all of my loving and loyal readers! Thank you all for selling me out on Amazon so many times that they have taken to calling my distributor and publisher and asking for more books!
I love you all, I hope you know that. YOU are what makes this all worthwhile, YOU are what keeps me going, YOU are who I am writing for. I want to bring joy and wonder to YOUR life and I never want to let YOU down.
Happy Holidays to YOU. Yes, YOU!
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and may JOY be yours all the days fo your life!

Happy Solstice, everyone! I hope as the longest night passes behind us that we all embrace the oncoming year with grace and strength!
Currently, I am hanging out at the "in-law's" and making cookies.
I have been doing very well on Amazon, sold through 3 times in December. Thanks everyone! Keep it up!
And don't forget to keep warm.
Baby, it's cold outside!

All is well in the world of me.
It snowed on me this morning in soft, glittery swirls. When the clouds blew away, the temperature continued to drop until it got bitterly cold. 20 degress when I was driving home from the mall. They say Nashville will hit a low of 14 degrees tonight. Damn chilly for the South!
My Holiday shopping goes well. I secured a copy of a very hard-to-find book for Matt's dad: Marilyn Merlot and the Naked Grape: Odd Wines from Around the World. Yay!
And the rest of the family...blown glass. I get a hell of a discount. ^_^
Book sales continue to go strongly, I have had a few people take up my holiday offer. There is still time for you to get your hands on a copy of A Year and A Day for $10 including first class shipping! Act now!
I hope everyone's December is going well with bright lights, cold nights, and hot cider!
