Merry Christmas & happy holidays! It’s been such a weird year, but I hope you and yours are safe and enjoying some needed fun before the year is over. I hope you’re finding time to read!
December is the month I slow down on writing and editing and plan for the coming year’s releases. I outline books (4 done, 2 to go) and pencil in release dates on my various calendars (6 scheduled so far).
I enjoy Christmas movies and songs, as well as holiday themed stories. White Christmas is my favorite movie, and Santa is Coming to Town by Bruce Springsteen. Both bring back special memories for me.
Do you have a favorite movie or song that instantly puts you in the holiday spirit?
Santa visited early and brought me the one gift I’ve been wishing for – a new sewing machine. I’m a crafter at heart and used to sew all the time. I even made quilts. It’s been fun to get back into the swing of things (see the two items I’ve made so far below) and I’ve spent hours on Pinterest finding more projects.
I’ve also made dozens of bracelets and candles (all sold!) and I have more beads and wax waiting.
I’m ready for more interaction with my readers and a spirit of community, so I’ve started a private readers’ group on Facebook. Members will get to see more of “me” the person, and get to see my works in progress (read excerpts as the books are written!), learn about sales, and have early access to release. I won’t be doing much with it until January, but if you’d like to be one of the first, founding readers, you can ask to join here: www.facebook.com/groups/223349495973783/
Wishing you and yours a peaceful season filled with love and fun,
Misty & family (including Athena, Thunder, and Princess Zoey!)
My sewing organizer with multiple pockets. It zips up and has a carry handle. Great for makeup, nail polish, essential oils, office supplies, and crystals! I call this my Busy Bee pouch. It has two pockets with fun inner linings and heavy duty zippers.
