Hi there! J here with a late breaking post. I’ve got something new to be thankful for! For the first time since April 2008 (when my babies arrived home) I got to sleep later than 6:00am! This very morning, my little darlings let me sleep until nearly 9:00! If you don’t have young kids, you have no idea what kind of blessing this is.
So, um…for anyone who noticed that this post was late getting up there – that’s why! 🙂 Sorry, I can’t help but smile, even though I’ve shirked my Scribely duty…I got to sleep in for the first time in nearly 4 years!! Wahooooo!
Okay, a couple of other follow-up items.
1 – Vivienne wanted me to apologize for criminally under-sugaring the cranberries in her Fluffy Ruffle recipe. I made them and had to add another 1/2 cup of sugar or more. I didn’t measure it. Don’t worry, I totally berated her about it.
2 – I’m heading out to a quiet spot to work on inputting the edits to The Peacock Tale. It’ll be out there for the world to buy on Tuesday…somehow…through the wonders of Indie Publishing. The good news is that my editor found LOTS of unnecessary “that’s” for me to remove, so it’s a nice tight story.
3 – I knew there was a third piece of business I needed to announce: the winners of my contest last week! Kathryn Anne Merkel gets print copies of both The Cordovan Vault and The Peacock Tale. Yeah! Enjoy!
Today’s Secret: There’s always something new to be thankful for, whether it be children who sleep later than normal or nearly immediate publishing opportunities!
