Happy Holidays!!

I'm off to my hometown to celebrate the season with my family. Tons of exciting stuff like a birthday, an anniversary, and of course the big day. :) 

I'll be back in January with an interview with the amazing PJ Hoover, JaNoWriMo, giveaways, and an exciting new series release. :) 

Home for the Holidays: On June 7th, high school softball pitcher, Ashley Runion was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with leukemia. Over six months later, Ashley has endured countless medical procedures, chemotherapy, and spent 165 days in the hospital battling the disease. She is truly an amazing inspiration and I just found out through her site, she's strong enough to spend the holidays at home with her family! Way to go, Ashley! :)  

Have a jolly holiday, everyone!

Hope you have good, Christmas-ey fun. Travel safe if you're going anywhere with snow, because snow has taken over the planet and enslaved mankind.

Huh. That sentiment kind of took on a weird twist at the end there, didn't it?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And Happy Birthday!

I like the JaNoWriMo! I think I might try to do this...is it just between you guys on that blog or are others allowed to hop on board? My goal was to be done with my first draft by February 1st. Without this I don't know if I'll make it! Either way, I'll be writing along with everyone. :)
