Twas A Coyote Christmas and a Contest!

Okay, a LOT going on this week for me. My MIL is heading home a day late thanks to the storm that hammered the east coast; 'Twas A Coyote Christmas is up on my website as a free read; and I'm running the contest for Noble Blood, which comes out January 18! I'll also have an announcement soon, some really good news I hope you guys have been waiting for.

Christmas here was the usual "AAAAGHHHHHH! OMG! OMG! I FORGOT THE SUSHI! WHERE"S J'S PRESENT! WHY CAN"T I WRAP THIS! AAAAAAHHHH!" type holiday that we usually experience here in the insane asylum I call home. Wrapping paper flew, fish was consumed and the kids screamed themselves... okay, they weren't the ones who went hoarse, but you know what I mean. I think my MIL might be in culture shock, but that's okay. We introduced her to the Rifftrax of Plan Nine From Outer Space and finished the job but good.

So I'm over halfway done with Howl For Me and I've done a general plot for Cynful. I'm going to fully outline that soon, and scenes are already running through my head for it. I can't wait to revisit Tabby, Bunny, Julian, Cyn, Ryan and Glory again. And there's going to be an extra-special scene where Julian puts the smack-down on Jim for Chloe's sake.

P.S.: Oh! To top off my Christmas, I found out I've been nominated for the CAPA's at The Romance Studio! Look for Eye of the Beholder, Bear Necessities and Shadow of the Wolf! WOOT! That was one of the best presents I got this year.

P.P.S.: Dusty has a very dirty mind. He took one look at the cover I'd worked so hard on for Coyote Christmas and asked if the ornament arrangement was, um, deliberate.

Looks like Christmas is the same everywhere - commotion and breakdowns...
