Happy December, everyone! I can’t believe it’s the first already… Where has this year gone? I had a friend over for coffee this morning, and we mused (hoped?) that we only get better with age — so I guess I can embrace a new year. Not that I have a choice: ready or not, here it comes! But before 2012 makes it’s appearance, we have to wade through the glitter and chaos of the holiday season. At least, I do. Maybe your Christmas is going to be sweet and low key. If so, I’m jealous.
Between the regular Christmas parties and celebrations, my amazing grandmother turns 90 this month, my husband and I are orchestrating a surprise for our kids, I’m acting in a commercial (Ha! You didn’t know I was an actress. Funny thing is, neither did I!), and we’re taking off for Liberia. My eye starts to twitch just thinking about it. Yikes.
So, in an effort to maintain my sanity this holiday season, I’m going to take a month-long break from blogging. But don’t you dare go away! When I come back from West Africa I’m going to have sooooo much to say. Not to mention in January I’ll start talking a lot about Far From Here. Have I mentioned how excited I am for this book release? So excited.
Anyway, so you don’t forget about me, I’m going to be hosting a few holiday giveaways! For the next three weeks I’ll be giving away signed copies of my NEW book Far From Here! It’s not released, people, and won’t hit stores until February 7, so this is a pretty fun dealio. All you have to do is leave a comment below. Extra entries for anyone who tweets about this giveaway, posts it on Facebook, or tells their friends. 😉 Tell everyone! I love this book and I can’t wait for people to start getting their hands on it. Oh, and as a little extra bonus I’ll throw in a copy of The Moment Between, just because I have a bunch of copies kicking around.
Happy December, friends! I hope you have a wonderful month! Don’t forget to leave a comment below to win a pair of free books, and check back on Monday when I reveal the winner…
