Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
My 25-word Nail Polish Story is up at - you guessed it - Nail Polish Stories, A Tiny and Colorful Literary Journal - HERE. My nail polish color is called "Russian Roullette" - it's not exactly a love story, but it's fun! Read all the February entries (won't take long, they're all only 25 words!), and send in one of your own if the spirit moves you. They publish them once every month.
Ann Best, author of In the Mirror and a well-known and popular blogger, wrote the most wonderful, unexpected, unsolicited review of my book, The Christmas Village. When someone feels everything I hoped they'd feel when reading my book, it makes me just want to jump up and down and clap my hands like a little kid. I'm grateful for Ann's generous spirit in putting this spontaneous review out there.
So, if you've been curious about my book, take a hop over to Ann's blog and read what she has to say - she really captures all that I could hope for any reader to take from it. And while you're there, check out her memoir, In The Mirror, which continues to get rave reviews.
It's Valentine's Day, so here's a shout-out to MY Valentine, RVPainter, aka artist J. Richard Secor. He has been my Valentine for more than 30 years now and I couldn't have been given a better partner with whom to share life. We've gone through good times and some rough ones too, but we've always been a great team and he still makes me laugh. Good thing, 'cause we're gonna be living in pretty tight quarters soon!
Wishing you all a wonderful day, filled with love and hopefully, yummy chocolate bonbons.
