So far this has been a great week. I started my 2012 celebration a bit early. In the late afternoon of Dec 31st, I wrote the final lines on two WIPs I had started this fall. I really wanted to finish those WIPs by the end of the year and it felt so good to reach that goal. One story is a paranormal and came in at 66k and one is a very romantic contemporary that rolled in at 47k. Both need to be proofed and polished but I was really happy to end the year by completing those 1st drafts.
I’m reading the new Ellora’s Cave anthology “Something Wicked This Way Comes Volume 1” and loving it! I’m reading the stories in order and I can promise you, so far this anthology is good! It’s a perfect sampling of six very talented and diverse Ellora’s Cave authors. I highly recommend this anthology to anyone who enjoys erotic-romance, variety and short fiction.

My husband and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary today. Our first wedding ceremony took place way back when, at dawn, on top of a seaside pyramid in the Yucatan.
We planned to marry in a Spanish colonial cathedral on New Year’s Day, but that plan went terribly wrong. Several days later, with no bath in two days, wearing Levi’s and boots and smelling of monkeys (don’t ask why…) we got married on top of a pyramid instead.
Later, that day I was treated to an all day smelly, subterranean tromp through twisting limestone caves to look at bats. As we were scrambling around in the semi-darkness, I was so scared I was going to lose my new wedding ring in bat guano. Fun honeymoon, huh? Do I trust my husband to plan important events? No. Do I still love him? Yes, absolutely!
We are celebrating tonight by setting the alarm for 3 am and going out to watch the Quadrantid meteor shower together with a thermos of coffee. It’s supposed to be a great meteor display with a few “earthgrazers” to light up the sky and add a little color and excitement to a cold, dark pre-dawn sky. If you live on the East Coast and wake –up early, you could be treated to 60-70 meteors an hour—lucky you!
I hope this year is off to a good start for you.
