Estella! Congratulations! You’ve won the Raintree series from Silhouette Nocturne. Here’s the line-up, Inferno by Linda Howard, Haunted by Linda Winstead Jones, and Sanctuary by Beverly Barton. I’ll be contacting you for your snail mail address.
This time I’m going to give away a Luna book, Catherine Asaro’s The Fire Opal. Catherine writes wonderful fantasy books! If you haven’t tried her yet, here’s a great opportunity. To be eligible for the drawing, you must type in your email address. I’ll also add you to my newsletter for updates on all the fun stuff and releases, too. I’ll announce the winner on my next blog in two weeks!
I had lots of editing to do this past week. I received my edited file of my February Loose-Id release Take Your Pleasure, which I told you all about last blog. After I’m done with the edits, I always print out a final copy and read the whole through again, to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I’d been to a friend’s black belt test during the day (yay, she was awarded her third degree black belt! An amazing feat!), and I had about 20 pages left to read, and it was after dinner, time for a nice relaxing bath, but I really wanted to finish those 20 pages, too. So heck, I gave myself a glass of white zinfandel, a couple of dark chocolate Hershey kisses, poured in the bath salts and carried my red pen into the tub. And I finished the edit! When I mentioned this to my friend Kathy Coatney, she said what other job could you be working while luxuriating in the bathtub! Heh, then it hit me, I’ve got a dream job!
And here’s another dream-job moment, a book signing I did yesterday for Yours for the Night with my friend Shelley Adina. I’m in the middle, Shelley’s on the right, and Laurel is on the left. Laurel’s the friend who just got her black belt! We’re working, but don’t we look like we’re having a ton of fun, too! I worked as an accountant for 20 years to get to this point, but now I’ve attained that dream job!
What’s your dream job? Are you doing it now, working toward it, retired from it? Maybe it’s being a mother, a rewarding job from which we never retire! I’d love to hear.
Happy Holidays everyone!!!!
Jasmine, Jennifer and JB!
