The holidays have snuck up on me. Between working at my new job and finishing my latest novel, I haven’t have time to prepare anything special for today. But never mind. All one really needs for Thanksgiving is an open heart and a consciousness of one’s blessings.
I’m incredibly grateful today. I’m almost fully recovered from my broken arm and surgery; in fact, I’ve recently started my swimming regimen again, which is both a psychological boost and a physical boon. My forced retirement has led to new employment which is in fact a much better fit to my abilities and personality. My husband is a treasure, a beloved companion as well as a practical helpmate. So far I’ve dodged the Covid bullet, and meanwhile, the pandemic has paradoxically brought me much closer to many friends and family. One can joke about Zoom, but when you live half a world away from people you care about, it’s yet another gift.
As for my writing – there are few things that bring me so much joy. I'm really excited about my new novel, The Journeyman's Trial, which I hope to release in a few weeks. And I truly appreciate you, my readers and fans. Some of you have been on my email list for a decade. Thank you for sticking with me!
As a small token of my gratitude, I have a Thanksgiving gift for you all. I’ll give a free copy of one of my holiday stories to anyone who leaves me a comment with your email address (obfuscated is fine). Let me know in your comment which one you’d prefer: Gray Christmas (mature holiday erotic romance), Cherry Pie and Mistletoe (ditto) or Santa, Baby! (lighthearted holiday erotica).
