a new book this way cometh

Remember this post? Here No? Then go read it. It has pics of Jason and Freddie from After the fire. Well.... I got offered a contract for it :) Jamie, my editor with WRP liked my changes and emailed this morning. I've filled in and sent back the pre-contract form.

Yay. I shall have to dig out my copy and refresh my memory before edits begin. It's about a girl named Freddie and a bloke called Jason. He left her 15yrs ago and is now her boss. It's also got bad guys, gun fights, heart stopping moments and death in it. But then, it's written by me so what do you expect? LOL. Its also got lots of romance and a happy ever after.

Right now my mind is full of the current WIP - about a deaf heroine, Adeline, and a cop named Nate. Based on the child, hat, lightning storm prompt from WRP this one, called all of me, has taken over my life completely. I'm dreaming it.

Yes... it has a title and is only a WIP. Unheard of for me. What's more...it has a plot. Although i now run out of plot so may have to plot more.

what else is happening. Umm R has left school!!! He's on - coughstudyleavecough - though that seems to consist of xbox, tv, food, xbox.

And i tried dying my hair. it didn't work. So back to the shops for bleach i go. Watch it go orange now. Or do I just put up with 4ins of grey roots on hair thats now way past my shoulders and half way down my back.

Tell you its a good job i don't work where i used to. The rule there was your hair wasn't allowed to touch your collar. Hmmm, even in a really high pony tail - and i'm talking from the top of my head here - my hair touches my collar. (I can reach it when i put my hand behind my back now.)

Why yes i do have a problem with capital i's. :P

okay, J due home soon. Gonna drag her to the library to rtn her well overdue library books. Then she can clean up the mess she made at breakfast. I haven't done it because as we all know M is for Mother not Maid.

CONGRATS on the new contract, Clare!! Woo-hoo! I'm happy for you.

Do you love long hair? Mine's long and I consider cutting it, but I always hated it short and despise the growing out phase. So...it keeps growing.

Again, congrats!

Thanks Dora.
And yes I love my hair long. Right now its long enough for me to touch if I put my hand behind my back. Takes hours to dry but as I don't have to wash it every day I don't mind too much.

A TIME TO PUSH DAISIES by Marion Ueckermann



Not every woman is fortunate enough to find her soulmate. Fewer find him twice.
JoAnn Stanson has loved and lost. Widowed a mere eighteen months ago, JoAnn is less than thrilled when her son arranges a luxury cruise around the British Isles as an early birthday gift. She’s not ready to move on and “meet new people”. Caleb Blume has faced death and won. Had it not been for an unexpected Christmas present, he would surely have been pushing up daisies. Not that the silver-haired landscape architect was averse to those little flowers—he just wasn’t ready to become fertilizer himself. To celebrate his sixty-fourth birthday and the nearing two-year anniversary since he’d cheated death, Caleb books a cruise and flies …

Blurb:

For as long as she can remember, Keri Jackson has despised the hype and commercialism around Christmas so much she seldom enjoys the holiday. Will she get her wish and be free of the angst to truly enjoy Christmas this year?

A devout Christian at heart, Jeremy Hinton, a Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Energy Medicine Practitioner has studied all of the world’s religions and homeopathic healing modalities. But when a rare bacterial infection threatens the life of the woman he loves, will all of his faith and training be for naught?

Find out in Keri’s Christmas Wish



Excerpt: She turned to face him, took his hands in hers and stood on tiptoe to brush her lips across his. “Thank you. I’ll bet you do wondrous work with your patients. You sure have made me feel better.”

He caressed her cheek with the back of his hand. “I’m not the Healer, love, just the vessel. Not the Source of Wisdom, only the messenger.”

Keri’s insides turned to mush at his use of the term ‘love…

Christmas, Yes!
Christmas is a wonderful time of year—the most wonderful if the song can be trusted.From Thanksgiving to December 25th, we overload the DVR with Christmas movies.Carols, albeit beautiful, are played exhaustively, and we regale the traditions of family and all manner of wonderful things.Even for Christians, the holiday has become so commercialized and sappy (don’t get me wrong, I love a good dose of sap every now and again—my DVR is full) that we sometimes forget that Christmas brings with it some serious messages we shouldn’t forget. One of those messages is the importance of saying, “Yes” to God, even when we don’t know what consequences will come because of it—or even when we do know.
We’ve heard the annunciation story: once upon a time an angel came to Mary; she said yes. Joseph wasn’t convinced until he received his own angelic visit, and then everything was ab-fab until there was no room at the inn and the baby Jesus was relegated to the barn…
And they all lived hap…
