Good Monday All!
Hope you had a super weekend. Hard to believe that November is almost over. I simply cannot fathom a year passing by faster than 2013, at least for me. Has it been that way for you?
Thursday, November 28 will be Thanksgiving here in America. This particular holiday is one of my favorites. There are no expectations other than being with family and friends, enjoying a great meal and being grateful for all my blessings. Oh and football. Let's not forget the football! As you might imagine, we are football crazy here in Bama and it's never more apparent than the weekend after Thanksgiving when most of the state will settle down in front of their televisions to watch the Iron Bowl, which is the game between Alabama and Auburn. That's the day when family members don't speak to each other if they root for the opposing side. Yes we can get silly but we are serious about our favorite team. And that being said, Roll Tide Roll! :)
Last week I spent lots of time rebuilding and reworking NOTHING TO LOSE. Even though this book is taking me much longer than I anticipated, I am loving the story and characters. Since it's a new series, I'm taking extra time. The first book in a series sets the theme for all future books. I do hope to get the book out early 2013. I want to make this the very best book I can and I want you to love it. Thank you guys for your patience!
Thanks to everyone who weighed in on Recommend Monday here or via email. For those who sent emails, I'll get back to you soon. Promise! It seems that everyone who gave their opinion was in favor of moving it to my Facebook page. Let's finish out the year here on the blog and plan to make the move to Facebook the first Monday in 2014.
I'd love to give the Recommend Monday blog a nice send-off, so you know what that means. Major giveaway for the month of December! Be sure to come back next Monday for details.
