Happy December everyone! Time for garland and decorated trees, parties and informal gatherings, holly and mistletoe, giving and receiving gifts, reminiscing over Christmases past a making new memories for the future. A truly wonderful time of the year. I'm looking forward to another large gathering of extended family this year at my mother's house - four generations worth! We have our traditions - both silly and solemn, that carry forward from year to year. And that's part of what makes the time so warm and wonderful. But we are a growing group (five of us siblings, all with children, some of whom now have children of their own) and new traditions are being added all the time. Which is as it should be.
On the writing front, things are moving along with the new story, though the holiday season does tend to slow down the daily wordcount. But I take that into account when setting deadlines so hopefully I'll get back on track by the first of the year.
Once again I've got some great guests lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.
My spotlight author this month is a wonderful writer and all-around good person, Janet Tronstad, so check out her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page.
Sue Brower, from the Natasha Kern Literary Agency, will be in my Industry Spotlight for the month of December. Look for her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page.
Since it's December, I thought I'd give away one of my own books for two of my loyal newsletter subscribers (the winners may have their choice). So if you're not already subscribed, be sure to click on the newsletter button over on the left side of this page.
And last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
