Happy Holidays!

We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a happy Kwanza (does anyone celebrate that?)
We wish you a festive Boxing Day,*
And we’ll see you next year!

I’m taking a break until the new year so I can spend time with my friends & family (and Owen) and try to finish the first draft of my YA wip. I hope you all have a safe and joyous holiday. I’ll be back on schedule in January!

(I had Hanukkah here but since it has already passed I didn’t think it made much sense to include. But hello to my Jewish peeps!)

  1. All the best Melanie. Sorry to hear things in Mexico didn’t work out, but now it’s obvious you are putting things behind you and concentrating on the future.

    Always nice to read your blog and stories.

    One of your long-time followers,
