Recovering from Thanksgiving Dinner...

So, here I sit, trying to recover from semi-Turkey Coma. We're watching Season 1 of Legend of the Seeker. My son is loving it. Hubby and I are curled up on one end of the sofa, finishing a fabulous bottle of red wine my father's girlfriend brought us from Arizona, Max is curled up at the other end. I so enjoy evenings like this. Tomorrow we go to get our tree and decorate the house. I'm looking forward to it. I so love the smell of a free tree in the house during the holidays.

I hope this posting finds everyone as grateful as I am at the moment. I've been remiss with posting lately - so there's a few pieces of bookish news to share:

1. 4 Cherries for Forbidden: The Revolution from Whipped Cream Reviews!

"Are you ready for a revolution? If so, you won’t want to miss Samantha Sommerby’s newest installment in the Forbidden series.... Ensure your seatbelts are fastened and your tray tables are in an upright position, because it’s a bumpy, yet sizzling, ride!... This story is scorching, well written, and fast-paced. You’ll enjoy this one in one sitting, and when you’re done, you’ll ask for seconds. Definitely one for the revered TBR list, don’t miss The Revolution."

2. Interview of Moi was posted today of the blog of D. Renee Bagby. Check it out here:

3. My short story, Touch of Fire was accepted as one of the short stories for All Romance eBooks' 28 Days of Heart series. I'm seriously excited about his series. I received a comp of my cover in short order and it's spectacular. I'll be sharing it just as soon as I get the final and permission. It's a straight contemporary featuring a San Diego Fire Fighter as the hero. I wrote the story long ago while we were in the midst of some seriously devastating wildfires here in San Diego County. I'm thrilled to have this going to benefit the cause - proceeds are being donated to the American Heart Association.

The basic idea is the All Romance will be releasing one of these a day for 28 days during the month of February. Here's a list of the titles chose in no particular order (actual release dates have yet to be decided).
