What are you doing here? It’s Christmas Day, for crying out loud! Go take a walk on the beach. Go play in the snow. Go sit by the fire.
But before you go, let me first pass on a few Holiday odds & ends.
First of all, take a look at the terrific Christmas present I got this year from my friends at Mind Over Eye in Los Angeles.
Didn’t they do a fine job?
Thanksgiving is the traditional time of year for gratefulness, but for
me, this week is one of reflection and thanks giving. Of remembering and looking ahead.
A time to say thank you to the readers and booksellers and librarians who give us a try, to the friends who make videos and come to signings, to the publishers and agents who support and encourage our work.
I always start off the new year with such a rosy glow. A promise to outweigh the naughty with nice. To be a better writer, a better
wife and daughter and sister, a better human being. I have such high hopes for 2008. For myself, for our country and for our planet. Come on, politicians, don’t let me down again.
If you have a moment, stop over at Moments In Crime today, too. That’s the new St. Martin’s Minotaur blog where I was posting last week. (I’m blogged out after all that. That’s why today’s post is so short.) Linda L. Richards got holiday duty over there, and it will be cold and lonely unless we join her for a cuppa. Her book, Death Was the Other Woman, promises that whatever drink she serves will rich and dark.
And mark your calendars for January 5. That’s the day that Elaine Flinn has rounded up her posse of questioners over at Evil E to interview me. When she brings the likes of Zoe Sharp, Ken Bruen, David Montgomery, Allison Brennan, Nick Stone, Paul Guyot and Ali Karim together, you know it’s going to be good.
Now, go enjoy Christmas Day. Want to tell us what you’ll remember this Christmas for? Was there one special moment or gift or event or thought?
Any New Year’s resolutions you’re willing to share?
