And in Other News…

The damn elves haven’t shown up so I’ll have to clean, cook, shop, wrap, and plan again this year. Seriously, elves? WTF?

In preparation for the holidays, I got a new hairdo and had my eyebrows done – SCARY  and slightly painful, to be honest. At one point, I had tears in my eyes and for some reason, I started salivating…weird, right?

But I made the best of it and sent a wickedly funny pic to my husband with no text attached while I was at the appointment. You know, to make him panic a little, like the good wife I am. 😉

Here are the during and after pics…

So that’s it for this lady for today. We’re expecting a deliciously big snowstorm this weekend, and in my opinion, it’s about time. It’ll finally look a lot like Christmas.

More to come later this month. Make sure you take care of yourselves during this busy season, my friends. Have some laughs, have some wine, see some friends, and get some sleep!

Okay, I’ll stop bossing you now.

Warmest wishes,

Melanie

I Have One Quick and Easy Favour to Ask of You…

My dear friend, the VERY talented Kelly Collins, is working on a new series, set in a cozy, mountain town of Aspen Cove, Colorado. I’ve had the pleasure of reading the books as she’s writing them, and as far as I’m concerned, she can’t write them fast enough. I crave my escape to Aspen Cove like Homer Simpson craves beer.

She’s got the first book, One Hundred Reasons, in the Kindle Scout Program and needs your vote so Amazon will publish the story. If she wins, everyone who votes gets a free copy of this beautifully told page turner. Trust me, you do NOT want to miss out on this.

Click here to vote now (It takes about 20 seconds and you can cross ‘good deed’ off your to-do list today).

The “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing

Invite

At the “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing, hundreds of romance authors meet with and sign books for fans in this two-hour event, with the proceeds from book sales going to literacy organizations. This year’s beneficiaries are ProLiteracy Worldwide, Literacy Partners, and Literacy Assistance Center.

In 2014, Romance Writers of America raised more than $53,000 to benefit literacy organizations. Since 1990, RWA has raised more than $878,000 to fight illiteracy.

Thank you to the Nora Roberts Foundation for underwriting the Literacy Autographing!

I’ll be there signing her books and giving away some fun SWAG and I would absolutely love to see you there!
