To all my readers, family, and friends: Happy Belated Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus, Happy Solstice, or Happy Whatever-You-Prefer-To-Celebrate! I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday filled with laughter, love, and peace.

Speaking of peace, I finished the revisions on the latest draft of When We Were Forgotten in early December and sent it off to my editor. My mind and soul have been deliciously light ever since, making this year’s holiday season truly joyous. I know there will be more to do once she hands the draft back to me, but I’m fairly certain after I work through her edit suggestions, the book will be done and ready to publish. So far, I’m really proud of it, and I hope you all like it too. I’ll let you know when I have a release date, so look out for that as well as upcoming info on the prequels to The Golden Orb, which I hope to revise in January and begin releasing some time in the Spring.

Thanks for all the love and support in 2015. I hope you and yours have a fabulous holiday and fantastic start to 2016!

Thanks for reading.
