Happy Day After Valentine's Day!

This has been a busy week for me! I hope you were able to to visit during the last three days while this blog was part of the Astraea Press Valentine scavenger hunt. It was so much fun working on this unusual blog hop with fourteen other authors. It seemed that no matter what was needed, someone was able to get it done and everything came together so well.

On Thursday night I joined other EsKape Press authors for a Valentine facebook party. We had over 100 people joining us for an evening of chatting, and getting to know our readers. All the authors had special things to give away, and there were lots of happy winners.

So now, it's time for me to get back into my routine - school work, studying my Japanese, and writing. I am ALMOST done with my historical novella. I'm really really hoping to finish it this weekend so that someone can read it. And then I'll submit that, and work on something else. The edits have come back to Stephanie Michels and me for our second Stitching Post novel, The Friendship Star Quilt.

As for my other goals:
Sewing/crafting - I went to another card making class at Christie Waite's home and made eight more beautiful cards for birthdays, new babies, sympathy, and just because. And I finished a few sachets just in time to give them away at the facebook party.
Reading - still plugging away at The Smuggler Wore Silk by Alyssa Alexander. Alyssa, if you're reading this, I'm not stalling off because I'm bored - really! I just am not getting things done quickly enough to sit down and enjoy it the way this book deserves to be enjoyed. But I WILL have it done by next week - or else I'll be way behind on my goal of 40 books for the year!
