How was your Christmas? Did you have a chance to catch up to anyone special over the weekend? I know this holiday can be filled with blessings for some and filled with heartache for others. I pray you received a taste of joy in the celebration of the birth of Christ. One of the things I’ve committed to do more of lately is praying, and although I pray for my readers all the time, is there anything, in particular, you’d like me to pray about? I’d love to add your name to my prayer journal. Email me directly HERE.
It’s Thursday. Well, it was when I started writing this, anyway. So even though it’s after midnight and you won’t be getting this until Friday (Christmas Eve Eve, for those of us who are – I mean, aren’t – panicking!), in my book, it still counts as a Thursday post!
Here are 3 things I’m thankful for this fine Thursday…
Yep. I’m sick. December hit me like a ton of bricks. Hit me hard. Took me out at the knees and is now kicking me while I’m down. And…it has also stolen my voice.
This is not good if you make a living as a narrator or voice actor.
Oh! But check out the snow on my website!!! (Look! A Squirrel!)
Quick heads up – only a few hours left to enter! The Sweet Romance drawing for a Kindle Fire and 55+ ebooks – including A Light in the Dark: Book 2 of The Fallout Series – is ending in only a few short hours. Enter while there’s still time! And if you haven’t read All the Way to Heaven: Book 1 of The Fallout Series, it’s FREE wherever ebooks are sold. I’m also giving away TWO signed paperback copies of All the Way to Heaven for those of you who still prefer to turn actual pages (like me!). Keep reading for more info. Read more
First off, let me just say that if you experienced even half the gratitude I did over Thanksgiving, you and I make one GRATEFUL BUNCH!
And to thank you for being such lovely readers and all around awesome people (because you ARE, and I’m grateful for every one of you who read my words and keep coming back for more!), I’ve got a few different ways I’m showing my appreciation of YOU!
As you may have heard…my computer hard drive crashed at the end of September. An “avada kedavra, belly-up, legs-twitching-in-the-air” kind of crash. Although I don’t know who wielded the wand on this one, what I took to my Computer Repair Mistress (CRM) was something that metaphorically resembled what was left of Voldemort under the bench at that weird, misty, near empty train station. Not quite dead, but not much left worth salvaging.
Yes, it’s been veeeeerrrrra (please, please, PLEASE read that with a Scottish burr – it’s much more fun that way) quiet on the home front the last month or two. Well, I’m just gonna tell you now, it’s probably going to stay fairly quiet the rest of the year.
What’s going on you ask?
I’ll try to make this quick… (ignore the shifty eyes). Here are a few important updates on what’s going on in my wee corner of the world. For more information, I’d love to have you join my Reader Community – you’ll get the latest news and updates on books and audiobooks and members-only giveaways and free book opps and more! Scroll down to find out how.
Things are about to get wild around here! Woo-hoo! We have a crazy-full schedule ahead, but it’s all awesome stuff! Besides the fact that about half my family celebrates birthdays over the next few months, and that some of the biggest Holidays of the year coincide nicely with said birthdays, we’re also celebrating several new releases ahead!
Box sets, audiobooks, new series, new books in familiar series, and more!
It’s only Thursday, I know, but I wanted to give you plenty of time to grab your copy of Elderberry Days: Season of Joy, the Holiday Sequel, for FREE before it goes back up to $2.99 at 3pm on Friday! (That’s 3pm Pacific time, so for you to the east of me, you get a few more hours.)
So today’s Friday Fiction Fix is simply an update and reminder so you don’t miss out. Have a fantastic weekend!
THANK YOU for your faithful support and encouragement in following my blog posts. I hope you know how much I appreciate you. I’ve heard from so many of you who are feeling overwhelmed and too busy these days, and the Holidays are just barely upon us! I can relate, my friends. I can relate. (I’m fondly labeling this year “Becky’s Boot Camp 2015”).
And in light of these busy times, a little change is in the air….
