So, here's a big shocker: IT'S SNOWING!

Bet you're surprised, huh? Yep... already have a good six inches of the white stuff outside (on top of the several FEET we already have) and it's still coming down. I swear, I'm not going to see grass until June...

I'll be drawing a contest winner for my website contest later today. In the interest of making it completely impartial, I'll have my daughter select the entry out of the hat, but she's still sleeping *G*.

A new, identical contest, starts today on my website, so don't forget to keep on visiting my tour stops and entering to win. Thanks!

I got the nicest, unexpected email yesterday from someone named Heather. It said, in part: I just found your page from a CTR link and had to tell you I love the cover and trailer for Don't Fence Me In! The cover is beautiful, you are lucky!

I can't tell you how much it tickled me that this person took the time to email me. So, thanks Heather!!

Ugh. Snow. Ugh. Even me, the one who loves the stuff, is yearning for grass. Green, growing grass.

Who am I kidding? I'll be thrilled to see brown, snow-flattened grass!

Hope you have a great weekend! Love your fan mail. I love it when readers take a minute to say something kind. It completely makes my day. :)
