Life is Good!

Tami Dee's Website Go there. Look me up. I'm the December Author in Waiting. I had a lot of fun preparing for this. You'll see a picture of me (since I can't figure out how to post one to the blog), you can learn a bit more about me, and you can read excerpts from my latest award-winning suspense AND my first ever contemporary that I'm so thrilled with! Check it out! You have no excuses not to. It'll be up for the whole month.

I woke up this morning at 8:17. Work started at 7:45. You do the math. The boss wasn't upset though. I think in 5 1/2 years I've been late 3, maybe 4 times.

Turns out my Christmas lights weren't stolen. When I got home today they were up waiting for me to plug them in. Guess there is some good in the world.

I'm really, really thinking about a website as a Christmas present to myself. Plus I've got this great fellow ARWA member who designs them and has already started explaining all the techno-crap to me.

I've got a weekend of Christmas cheer planned---shopping, decorating and hot chocolate drinking. I brought a bunch of stuff home to grade too, which I really want to do so that life will be easier next week.

I'm off to have a cup of tea and read, but tonight I think I'll read Merry Christmas, Babies instead of Catherine, Called Birdy. You should go to Tami and I will love you for it!

Very good, December Author In Waiting! Good show. I enjoyed every minute of the article, and getting to SEE "the Keach."

Carry on!

Excellent interview Chris! One of the days you will be an Author in Waiting no more with multiple bestsellers. I still believe in you. :)

Great interview. Nicely done.

I've been thinking about a website too. Just not sure how to go about it yet. I think I'll wait till I sell. I will be able to justify the expense to the dh better that way:)

Thanks, Stephe. It took a while to find a picture I was happy with.

Nic! What a pleasant surprise! Thanks for taking a peek at the interview and thanks for believing in me.

Thanks, Kari.

Teri, I think the expense is what's really keeping me from doing it too. Pluse, I've got so many things planned for next year that I want to spend money on--Nationals, another local conference, some more contests, my summer trips to Ireland and Scotland. Then again, if I can afford all those other things, what's another couple of hundred, right?

Great interview, Christine. Nice to get to see you, too!

Elisabeth, what I wouldn't give to know how to put pictures on my blog!! I mean, look how long it's taken me to figure out how to put a link in an actual post! (And that was only after directions sent in an e-mail!)
