Time flies

It seems we just packed away the Christmas decorations, and here it is, already approaching the end of January.

Well, OK -- so I really did just pack away the Christmas decorations last week. I figure since I go to all that effort of putting them up, we should at least get to enjoy them for a while. Right? That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I also really need to do something with all those cranberries I bought. Sure, they're a hardy fruit, but how much longer will they really last in the fridge? The clock is ticking on the freshness time bomb. I came across this fabulous recipe for cranberry shortbread bars and its a huge hit. I had planned to make a whack more batches -- hence, the cranberry surplus in my fridge. I'll have to put it on my to-do list for tomorrow.

On a more positive, taking-care-of-business note, things are moving right along on my current work-in-progress, tentatively titled Jewel Ascendant. It's a sequel to my futuristic erotic romance, The Family Jewel. My heroine is Denali, eldest daughter of Shantay and Mikah of Black Moon Clan. She's a lieutenant in the Galactic Fleet, home on leave. My heroes are bond brothers from Geminus, one of the worlds introduced in my futuristic western, Marshals' Most Wanted. I'm having some fun with it. :)

I have a few shoutouts:

... to Cara Covington/Morgan Ashbury, on the runaway success of her latest Lusty, Texas, novel, Love Under Two Navy SEALS ...
... to Kate Watterson/Emma Wildes, on the runaway success of The Best Mistake ...
... to Elle Saint James/Lara Santiago, on the runaway success of the latest in her Double Rider Men's Club series, Unbridled and Unclaimed ...
