WINNIE GRIGGSHappy February! Where did January go! It seemed I blinked an it was gone. But never mind that, we've officially launched into the romantic month of February, the month that encompasses Valentine's Day. It's also the shortest month of the year and the month that my birthday falls in. And this year my birthday falls on a Friday the 13th, something that doesn't happen very often and that I always find worthy of extra celebrations! One of the things I'm doing to treat myself this month is to attend the First Annual Texas Tea Festival down in Austin Texas. Those of you who follow me on Facebook know how much I enjoy my hot cup of tea every afternoon, and how much fun I have experimenting with new flavors so attending this festival is something I'm really looking forward to. And the fact that it means a long road trip with a good friend who is also a writer is just icing on the cake :)

On the writing front, I'm still working on the seventh book of my Texas Grooms series. This story has taken some unexpected twists and turns as i attempt to get it down on paper, but I hope in the long run, this makes for a better story. And in breaking news, I just accepted an offer to pen a novella for an upcoming anthology. I'm REALLY excited about the story I have in mind for it. Say tuned for more on that later.  

Don't forget to take a look at the great guests I have lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.

And last but not least, here's my quote for the month, and it's one I really love.
