True Gratitude

Thanksgiving is a wonderful reminder that we all have much to be grateful for. But this year as we go around the table, saying what we are thankful for, I think my words will be more heartfelt than usual.

You see, in recent months, I've been to the doctor many times and had numerous tests to try to determine what's been wrong with me. I won't bore you with details, but my health hadn't been quite right for several month, and the cause was a mystery. Until a few days ago when I went to see a specialist.

In my head, I always go to the darkest place, the land of doom and gloom, and diseases with no cure. But after a rather short visit with a specialist, he came up with an answer. A hereditary condition that is much more manageable than anything my pessimistic mind had envisioned. In a few weeks we should get the confirmation of his diagnosis, although he was pretty sure he was correct.

My husband and I left the office feeling on top of the world. And suddenly, I have true gratitude. I'm not sweating the small stuff. All I can hope is that the feeling lasts. Life is good. Happy Thanksgiving!

My Lips are Sealed

I've always sucked at keeping news to myself. But that's exactly what I must do. My new book is ready to go. The absolutely gorgeous cover is complete, the page proofs are finished, all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed. But the release date is more than three weeks away!

Does anyone have a muzzle? Because I can't promote the book for at least two more weeks. I've been securing ad space, writing blog posts, arranging all sorts of fun promo events, so at least that stuff has kept me busy.

You see, I would really like for my book to make a big splash. In order to do that, I need most of the sales to happen right around release day. So mum's the word before then. Which is oh so hard for me. I can tell you a few things about the book, though.

First, it features two fun romance tropes -- the fake marriage, and opposites attract. And when I say opposites, boy, do I mean it!

So you're going to have to bear with me and wait. But I will say, I think this book will be totally worth the wait. I'll give you a heads-up before it goes on sale. Then I'm sure you'll want to snap up your own copy. Trust me. You will!
