Happy December! by Tymber Dalton

If you’re in the US, did you survive your turkey coma? LOL! I, for one, did NOT go out shopping on Black Friday, although I did have to run errands. December brings about the end of hurricane season (yay!) and the start of the oh-my-god-there-goes-my-electric-bill season as my husband goes batshit decorating the outside of our house in a manner that would make Clark Griswald jealous.


No, I’m not kidding.

I did find out that THREE of my books have finaled in the annual EPIC book contest: Cross Country Chaos, Out of the Darkness, and The Reluctant Dom. Woot! Now to decide if I’m going to go to the conference in March in New Orleans (I have a dreadful fear of flying) to attend the banquet where the winners will be announced.

I also flunked out of Nano before I even got started. I was too busy writing to write. I was invited to participate in a special project, had to do edits on “Safe Harbor” (writing as Tymber Dalton, coming 12/7 from Siren-BookStrand!), and trying to finish up several other wips I need to get done and submitted to my publishers.

I’m also in the middle of home improvement hell. Nothing so drastic as ripping out a kitchen, but we’re almost finally done with our new floors, I still have to do trimwork around some of the edges. And now I have to finish painting the greatroom (we don’t have separate living/dining rooms)…before hubby puts up our THREE Christmas trees.

Oh, yes. Three. The big one, a smaller six-foot one, and a tabletop one. Yes, it gets crowded here in Hell’s Happy Acres once hubby starts his holiday hall-decking.

So how are you planning on spending the holidays? Any special family traditions you have?

Lesli. (aka Tymber Dalton)
