I really must apologize for my lack of attention to this blog. Interviews & Reviews keeps me quite busy as does Learning from the Master. In between that, I'm also writing my next book and working on edits for my current one. So I really am sorry for the neglect, but if you ever need to contact me I will respond.
My goodness, time sure flies when you are busy doesn't it? We've only a few weeks left before Christmas day. I've done almost all my shopping online this year. How about you? Have you been braving the crowds at the shopping malls or letting your fingers do the shopping? I must say shopping this way certainly is easier and I've been pleasantly surprised at how many of the stores I usually shop in have a delivery service. Who knew?
I've been steeped in edits for my latest book He Who Has an Ear and in the middle of creating a bible study guide for the book of Revelation. This has to be my most challenging endeavour to date as Revelation is not an easy book to read let alone decipher, but I'm taking a shot at it. In fact, I'm currently leading a study on it at www.learningfromthemaster.com using some of the material I'm writing. So, if you have ever wanted to tackle this book come join me!
In the meantime I've had lots of exciting news. First, I was featured in the October Book Fun Magazine edition for my Bible Study Learning from the Master. It won non-fiction book of the month and is currently in the running for non-fiction book of the year. I could really use the votes so if you could help me I would be most appreciative. Visit www.bookfun.org and you will find it on the righthand side. Scroll down until you come to Learning from the Master.
I also was a finalist in the 50 Great Writers You Should be Reading Contest. The grand prize was $4000. Alas, I did not win it, but I did make it into the top 50 and so I won a place in the book of the same name.
Today, I received my newest book Chicken Soup for the Soul the Dating Game. I have a story on page 24 on how I met my husband. It's called The Bulletin Board Matchmaker. It comes out December 17, but I have a few early copies so if you would like to order one please visit my bookstore.
Last week we had about three feet of snow and today it is so warm the snow is gone and the grass is showing again. I'm hoping for a green Christmas but only because we have to drive eight hours to get my daughter to bring her and her pets home for the holidays. After that it can snow all it wants! I'm sure you all wish for good travelling conditions as well. I will touch base again soon.
