Happy Birthday Angela, and Merry Christmas Everyone!



Happy Birthday, Angela! I am SO glad that you were born on this day only 29 years ago ;). Sleep in, eat some extra chocolate, and take it easy today! And if anyone else would like to congratulate the birthday girl, you can do so here in the comments, on Facebook, or on her Twitter account.

Now that Christmas is upon us, Angela and I are getting ready to take our annual blog-cation through the end of the year. But because I like to hear myself talk, I need to leave you with a few final words before signing off:

First of all, the 25-page critique contest is now closed. We’ll be randomly drawing two names after the first of the year and will announce the winners when we return on January 5th. Thanks for entering, everybody! I’m SO excited to dig into some good reading in the new year.

Emotion Amplifiers High ResSecondly, I hope you all are enjoying your (mostly) free copy of Emotion Amplifiers. Thanks to everyone who nagged politely requested Amazon to reduce the price, it’s now free at all distributors! If you haven’t gotten a copy yet, snag a last minute Christmas gift for you or a friend at


Barnes & Noble


Smashwords or


Lastly, Angela and I would like to thank you all so much for your continued support this year. You all are honestly the most encouraging, uplifting, helpful, and FUN bunch. We’re so grateful to everyone and wish all of you happy holidays and a spectacularly successful New Year! We’ll see you all January 5th!
