I’m ecstatic to announce that my short story, Better Latte Than Never, is going to be published in the Accidental Valentine anthology released by Roane Publishing in Q1 2015!
All the slaving over words and letting all the numerous characters woo me and tantalize me with their stories is paying off. Watch here for updates and news, and also over on Roane’s blog.
In other news, I’m sitting here procrastinating from holiday decorating. I tried to get a new artificial tree after last year, when my 9 year old artificial tree refused to “fluff” out. The needles seem crushed beyond repair. Of course, my indecision ran a full course until I was too late to buy from the discount sites. I finally ordered one a week ago, but it went out of stock and now won’t be in until later this week or even after Christmas. So we’re back to using the sad, crinkled Charlie Brown tree. I think I’m going to need some festive alcohol to get me motivated here, or maybe I’ll just kick back and write a short story about some couple that falls in love during some foul-up during the holiday season.
My favorite part of Christmas decorations has always been white lights entwined around evergreen branches with Mannheim Steamroller cranked in the background. What’s your favorite part of decorating?
