Hello again and thanks for visiting. Even though it’s early September we still have some hot weather ahead, especially if you’re in the South. I don’t know about you, but when the temperature is about to burst the thermometer, I don’t feel too much like cooking so I will share some easy recipes besides digging into a carton of ice cream.
Kids are going back to school, and I am sure there are mothers and fathers out there who are doing cartwheels!
The cats are still running my life and I am very happy about it and so is Harvey. He thinks they belong to him. If you don’t have a pet, you don’t know what you’re missing. I’m serious. There was an article in the news a couple of weeks ago about how petting animals can lower your blood pressure and reduce stress, unless you’re awakened in the wee hours when one of them hits the remote and Columbo is in your living room looking for clues. It’s happened more than once. One night I heard voices and it scared the bejeezus out of me. After listening for a few more seconds, I realized it was Opie and Andy talking to Aunt Bea. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, go to COZI TV. Great television shows from days gone by.
Before I go any further, I want to advise you of a scam on Facebook. (What else is new?) This is the second time someone has used my contest to try to get credit card information from you. I WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR ANY SUCH THING. EVER. So PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
I also want to thank the people who take the time to write to me. I cannot tell you how much it means to hear how my books have helped you, whether it’s nights of insomnia, or sheer entertainment. Please keep sharing your experiences. I read all your comments. Recently I received one who has been a fan for many years. She claims she’s addicted. LOL. At least it’s a healthy addiction!
So here we are in September and Halloween decorations are up. I actually saw boxes of holiday ornaments being offloaded at a big box store. Time moves too swiftly. Can we please slow it down a notch?
On the book side of things, LIAR! Book 4 in the Lost and Found Series is on sale now in mass market. Lot’s of twists and turns and an insider’s view of New York City.
ROCK BOTTOM – Sisterhood # 35 (can you believe it?) library edition is available the end of this month.
A new Christmas hardcover SANTA & COMPANY is coming in October when four friends, Frankie, Amy, Nina, and Rachael meet up in Lake Tahoe for another zany adventure. FALLING STARS in paperback will also be available. There are also many e-book promotions that will be running so tune into my Facebook page often.
This month’s contest is for autographed copies of a few of my favorites with a special autumn surprise.
Stay well, healthy, and strong!
All the best,
