The Parade. Soon the streets will be overwhelmed and tough to navigate. You don't want to starve, so plan ahead. Over here we're putting up vegetables and stacking bags of flour and coffee in the cellar.
I got a superb Christmas eve present: a double book review from Library of Clean Reads. (They have two reviewers and both read it and liked it so it got two reviews.) Library of Clean Reads is a great blog for those who like books without too much sex, too much violence or too much swearing. I can take some of the above, but too much and the book becomes all about the sex (or the violence, or the swearing) and not about the story. Camelot & Vine has some violence and "mild religious expletives." My heroine mentions sex in fond ways but never actually gets any. She's not exactly pious.
I appreciate that they took time to read and review it. It's hard for independent authors to get honest reviews without paying for them, but most book bloggers won't take money and they won't post a review if they can't give your book at least three stars. So if they read it and mum's the word, it probably means "ick."
I'm watching a squirrel tiddle-toe across the top of my back fence, switching his fluffy tail. I love my office but there are distractions.
Where was I?
Yes! I want to announce the winner of Saturday's "Casting Light Upon the Darkness" blog hop. John pulled Nicole Evelina's name out of the hat. Nicole will receive a free copy of Camelot & Vine. I'm happy to say she sounds excited. Nicole also writes about the Arthurian legends so she knows the subject and will know what liberties I took. Hopefully that won't mean "ick."
Here at our house we will make one more sortie for supplies, then hunker down for a few days. I hope I've thought of everything. If I haven't, that squirrel had better watch out.
