Hello and happy Boxing Day! I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and that you are safe in your homes and snug as bugs in rugs. The weather has been frightful almost everywhere and I truly hope you all made it safely to your destinations. But, if not, I hope you made the best of the unexpected situation and that Santa Claus found you anyway. He’s known for that.

Because it was so much fun the first time, I decided to do it again. This is only the second time for me so I still feel a bit uncomfortable but it’s getting easier. And I had help in the form of a lovely lady named Linda Thompson. She helped me relax and just focus on the task at hand. What is this thing you’ve done you wonder? I’m glad you asked.

So, the tree is up! Most of the decorations are in their new home for the next 40 days or so. I’m still in need of about 600 batteries and 72 hours of sleep, but it’s beginning to look, and smell, a lot like Christmas!

“Laughter is the best medicine.” Or so the old adage goes. But is it really true? According to my research, medical experts say “yes,” laughter is indeed great medicine for many things. Laughter is a particularly great form of stress relief, and that’s no joke.

It’s Monday and I’ve had a busy, busy week, last week. The inn was full to the rafters Friday and Saturday nights, couple of house tours during the week, and my new book releases Friday, so there was a lot of marketing and pre-launch hoopla to do to get all that ready. This week promises to be just as busy.

I’ve been promising a new book and FINALLY it’s here. Well, almost here. But, it is available for Pre-Order and I encourage you to do that if you intend to buy the book. Release day sales are huge in boosting an author’s visibility so if you think you’re going to want to read this book (and I hope you do), please go to your preferred book vendor and pre-order it. (Links below.) Even if you have no interest in reading it but you want to help boost my sales, go ahead and buy it or gift it to a friend. I’ll be forever grateful.

The writers police academy was quite the adventure. Lots of hands-on stuff. Lots of great insider information. Lots of really nice people. Not so much sleep. But it was all worth it. The workshops were great, the food was good, the hotel was adequate, the location was perfect, the guest speakers were fabulous. One in particular touched me with his keynote address on Saturday night.

I know. It’s only June. But the book I’ve been promising, the one set around Christmas time, that should have been released near the end of the year holidays, is almost ready to be released. I’m bummed that I missed the Christmas release, and the Valentine’s Day release, and the mother’s day release, but, hey, it is what it is. The book just wasn’t ready.

There are so many dishonest people in the world today. So many people with harmful agendas. So many people out to make a buck. I think you’d be somewhat foolish if you weren’t always a little leery of people selling stuff. There are thieves who will take your money and disappear. But I also choose to believe that there are still good people out there too. People who are just trying to make a living. People who come by their money honestly. People who aren’t trying to trick you into buying something they have no intention of delivering.

I’m not sure if you’ve seen this graphic (below) or not. I first saw it on Facebook, read it – twice – and thought: “Wow, there’s so much truth in this.” It’s so often the little things in life that determine the kind of person you really are. How we perform certain tasks, if at all, says a lot about how we may or may not treat people or perform other tasks. Or just approach life in general. Little hidden meanings surround all the little things we do.
