Lesley's Tips for Enjoying the Holidays

Tips for Enjoying the Holidays More: Shop Early - Nothing spoils the happy holiday mood like last minute shopping.Don't expect it to be like a holiday movie - Accept perhaps National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation ;)Don't expect it to be like a Christmas Card - Expectations ruin the beauty of the experience you're having. Sure the kids throw clumps of icicles all over the tree, dump sprinkles in 3 inch high piles in the middle of the cookies, and decide halfway through that they're not remotely interested in making ornaments with you, but who cares.

Once you make your stock up trip, society falls.  Don't worry. At least the power and water are still on and we have tv!

Okay, that's it! Don't buy anything else for the rest of the month!

What? Your kids need fresh milk, and you don't wanna bake your own bread? Hmm OK.  I guess then you can go out on the occasional salvage run.  But you're not allowed to buy more than a bag worth of groceries.  After all with anymore than that, you're going to be too weighed down to run from the zombies ch…

I've been a Busy Little Bee

I know I promised to be better about posting here, but I've been so busy that I haven't been able to manage. There is something about this time of year! I swear I get SO overwhelmed by everything. Work has been crazy! And I just had Nicky's birthday party last weekend. He had a Halloween birthday party. I built a little haunted house in our barn. It was epic! And on top of all that, I've finished up publishing all the Women of Sithein books and Blood and Violets in print and Kindle editions. So here you have them! In suggested reading order, even!

Marie doesn’t know how she managed to get herself kidnapped by a vampire or how she can possibly be having such uncomfortably lusty feelings for him when he’s holding her a prisoner. Alexander wants a protégé, and this snarky, obnoxious young woman is absolutely perfect. He just has to manage his growing attraction to his feisty prisoner and keep her out of the way long enough to complete a vital business arrangement before proceeding with his plan. Meanwhile, a shadowy group known as Carpe Sanguis is out to not only stop Alexander’s plans but take his very life.
