As for me, I’ve been getting into the spirit for the last 2 months – ugh! In my day job, one of my responsibilities is putting together our corporate Christmas party which this year was Luau themed. The party is a HUGE undertaking – imagine planning a wedding for 150 people … yeah that’s what I do EVERY YEAR. With the exception of picking dresses and such, but catering, venue, dj, centerpieces and even giveaways for every attendee (Usually some type of glass) and I have to stay in budget, so needless to say on top of the regular Christmas craziness most people go through I have to do last minute party things … but ya know what? I love doing it and this year was deemed the BEST PARTY EVER! Which of course is a double edged sword because …. well … how do you top it? Alas I have 2 months until I have to begin planning NEXT year’s party so I won’t worry about it until then LOL.
On the writing front – book 3 is coming along slowly, again the whole holiday thing snuck up on me – have I mentioned Thanksgiving was held for the first time at MY HOUSE AHHHHHHH so much for a quiet long weekend of writing and going somewhere else to eat … still it went well there too.
Back to the book – I’m really excited about it, I think in a way it will serve as a gamechanger in the larger story arc of our Benandanti friends, but it will also still have a fantastic love story at its core, and this one is going to be a rollercoaster ride. If you’ve read the end of Beneath the Blood Moon you know that Rebeka and Niko are not your ordinary mated couple. I think once I get into the meat of the story I am going to fly right through it.
I’m hoping 2013 will bring me a new genre as well. I am crossing my fingers to complete a contemporary story that will kick off a 3 book series AND I’m hoping to start plotting a historical series (woohoo men in cravats, who could resist?)
Tomorrow I’ll write about the other thing I’ve been doing this holiday season … Watching MOVIES! Two of my favorites: The Hobbit and Les Miserables! See you then!
Until Next Time.
