On the Upswing

Monday, Nov 24

I attended a mixed-media workshop at Spokane Art Supply this weekend, and it was really good for me. Great fun, and a good distraction from ongoing withdrawal symptoms. (Don’t worry, I’m NOT going to smoke, if only because I don’t want to have to go through the quitting process again. :)) I learned a lot, not only from our great instructor, Mary Jo McGraw, but from other people in the class, too. Nothing like a lot of theraputic painting-slopping and gluing to cheer a person up.

Bernice gets her stitches out today, and won’t be a conehead anymore. That is going to be a relief to her and to me. The poor little mite has been a good sport, right along.

Buck is holding his own. So far, so good.

I was pretty bummed about my favorite TV show, “Ghost Whisperer”, but it looks like they might pull that storyline out of the soup after all. 🙂

My new book, “A Stone Creek Christmas”, will be in stores tomorrow. It’s a fun story–the heroine is Olivia O’Ballivan, Brad’s sister. (Brad was the hero of “The McKettrick Way”.) Both Brad and Olivia are descendents of Sam and Maddie O’Ballivan, from “The Man from Stone Creek.” Anyway, Olivia talks to animals–and they talk back. This particular book has a very special place in my heart–lots of great Christmasey stuff going on. “A Stone Creek Christmas” is a Silhouette Special Edition, and it has a terrific cover.

I’m loving the covers I’ve been getting. Wait until you see the Creed covers (The Montana Creeds, Feb., March and April!”) And then there’s “The Bridegroom”–Brad Pitt, eat your heart out. I may be prejudiced, but I think Harlequin/HQN has the best art department in the business!

See you tomorrow….
