I first want to thank all of you who participated in the Cheers, Cavanaugh Blogfest. It was a HUGE success and a BLAST to read all of the amazing/hilarious/meaningful posts--and it was great to be connected with new faces. Looks like Alex survived... though I hear rumors of a new victim for next year...
Also, I want to thank all of you who have been so kind in supporting me with my writing journey. I was doubtful whether to post my story, which is why it took me several months, but the response has been so kind and it's so nice to know we're not alone on this crazy journey.
Next, for my querying friends, one of my FAVORITE tools is querytracker.net. Querytracker asked me to do an interview, and it was just posted yesterday, so if you want to check it out, click here.
And finally, to bring in the holiday spirit, I HAVE to post these pics. The sickly talented, Michael Di Gesu, handcrafted these gorgeous stockings for our kids! I mean, how incredible are these? Take a look:
He also made gourmet cookies for my hubby and knit a phenomenal scarf for me. It's this kind of selfless giving that sometimes seems to be lost today. Opening that gift really brought in the magic of what this community/friendship is about. Hope this doesn't embarrass you, Michael, but I had to show off your rare skills!
Along with Michael's gifts (and your gift, Melissa-TY!) and just finishing reading Madman Koop's ridiculously amazing WIP, I think I'm set for having the holiday spirit this season. I hope we can all have peace and happiness in these upcoming days--I know it's been difficult with everything going on--but hopefully we can focus on all that we do have, cling onto our loved ones, and move forward with renewed strength.
Red. Head. Out.
