I do have prizes for those of you who so kindly offered suggestions for the aunt - I went with the hamper in the end, but all the ideas were brilliant. Ros and CC, if you'll email your snail mail addies and pick something from my backlist I'll be in touch.
We have been running a Christmas party giveaway over at the Harlequin Romance Authors blog, btw, and there's still time to get over there and join in the fun (and pick up some great recipes).
I should have offered something deliciously Italian, such as panettone, which Sarah and Matteo (seen here in their Australian cover) will be enjoying this Christmas but I was so deeply involved with another project that I stuck to my old favourite for Christmas - home made shortbread.
Now all I need is for the gifts I've ordered to arrive in time and for the snow to stay away until January (sorry white Christmas fans, but I've had two years of that and enough. Really.)
This seems like a very good moment to say a big thank you to everyone who visits the blog for so much support this year.
It's been amazing, with so many different new ventures. The publication of my Beaumont Brides trilogy as eBooks has been a huge success, thanks largely, I suspect to the gorgeous Jimmy Thomas on the cover of Wild Justice. I've had more comments about that cover than my other sixty put together!
New Voices was amazing, and I was so thrilled that my partnered writer Charlotte Phillips made the final four. I'm hoping for big things from her in the coming year.
And the new project that kept me pinned to my desk should be available in the New Year, just in time for those of you whose NY resolution is to make this the year you write that book. It's the book I wished I'd had when I first started writing fiction and will initially be available as an eBook.
