Holiday Catch Up
First off, please check back on December 26th for a fun author interview with the great Phillipa Ashley. With all the holiday madness, we're going to move it back a couple of days. Check back on Monday for more from Phillipa about how she came up with her characters and more! (Check out my review of Carrie Goes off the Map for a fun read.)
Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books to check out Romance Month. There are some fun posts--including a little something Tasha asked me to write up! I love the great stuff my other blogger friends wrote up, especially about romance reads, so it was a lot of fun to bust out of my normal writing style to post a little fun post about romance heroes and romance novel covers. Check out all the posts this month, but you can also check out my guest post, "Judging a Cover By Its Man-Flesh."
One last thing! Thank you to everyone who joined in the birthday celebration for Jane Austen. It was a lot of fun learning a bit more about Austen-era sweets and joining so many other great bloggers and authors in celebrating Austen's birthday!
All right, now it's time to head back to my grading, reading, and resting! I wrenched my back pretty good a couple of weeks ago (trying to put together my new treadmill--how ironic) and it finally knocked me flat on Tuesday. Today I'm pretty thankful for chiropractors and plenty of time to rest. Maybe it was yet another way to avoid grading all of these essays? :)
