This is going to be short. It’s my last post for the 12 Days of Christmas party; after that, we will TRULY be back to regular posts*.
Right now, I’m going to talk about the most important birthday ever!
I’ve decided to add some brief authory updates at the end of this post just ’cause I can’t resist talking about myself. *is super egotistical* *as y’all know*
*I mean it this time! Really! Regular posts! (I bet I’m going to randomly decide to do a hiatus or something … hopefully not though …)
Well, this year marks our Lord and Savior’s 2017th birthday. God sent His Son into the world to save us from our sins. Because of Him, we can have eternal life.
There’s not much else to say. That’s just about all there is to it.
I could talk a long time about the significance of traditions, about being models of Christ, about ways to make Christmas truly meaningful … But I won’t. Everyone has already said everything I’d want to say somewhere in this party.
We have so much to be thankful for. So much to celebrate. So much to talk about. So many reasons to be happy.
Remember that Christ died for you, you are loved and safe and pure.
And enjoy this Christmas!!!
The Promised Author Updates
I finished the first round of edits of At Her Fingertips! I still have to input every single edit (all 900+ …) from my Kindle onto the computer, but … it’s gonna happen! Slowly but surely!
I’m going to try to skim my way through this second round of edits as fast as I possibly can, but I don’t know how fast I’ll be able to go. Hopefully I’ll get a lot of work done in the next couple weeks.
I’m still trying to decide what I’m going to write next. Here are a few ideas …
That One Story About the Civil War Which is Kind Of a Romance and Has Philip Knight in it Only Not as a Main Character But as the Hero’s Best Friend
(What? I don’t have a title yet …)
Right now I’m calling it Heaven Can Wait, which is essentially a random combination of words which has nothing to do with the actual story?
Southern belle Lynn McCullough only married Yankee shipbuilder’s son Clarence Hilton because of her parents’ threat of disinheritance. Exactly why she remained married to him when a simple way out was offered to her is something even she can’t fathom.
There are many other things Lynn can’t understand… like how kind Clarence is to her after being humiliated, insulted, and having personal items defenestrated. However, when Clarence goes off to war, Lynn finds herself missing her husband, and it doesn’t help to be living with a surprisingly non-irritating mother-in-law who keeps pushing her towards a faith she never dreamed of taking as her own.
God Love a Yankee
Another WIP title.
This is sort of a sequel to the other story, again linked to The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy as Philip Knight as well as Hazel Bailey are main characters.
Hazel Bailey has just buried her mother, received word of her father’s death, and has no idea where her brother is. She is more than ready to be done with this war. She doesn’t want play nurse to wounded soldier, even if he is particularly handsome.
Philip Knight has now been unlucky in war and unlucky in love and is about easy to give up. He’s a Yankee dressed in Confederate clothing under the care of an annoyingly optimistic Southern Belle.
As Philip and Hazel form an unlikely friendship, they do something which I have t decided on yet. But can their relationship survive the secrets in Philip’s past?
This is the fifth book in The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy. I’m not gonna give a summary just yet … 😉
This is the story of Alice’s best friend Cassie. Essemtially, she’s thrown into a wild adventure after a peasant uprising near her home and ends up in Italy meeting handsome Americans and singing in an opera.
100 Facts About an Angel
This is a story involving little Ned Knight. He doesn’t know a lot about his mother … until mysterious notes start arriving telling him one fact about her at a time.
Once a Stratton
Y’all know this one. It’s just be picking it up again, basically.
One more thing before you go …
Merry Christmas! I know this was a pretty short post (well, the supposed post, anyway), but I hope you enjoyed it … at least a little! How did your Christmas go/how is it going?
Which story would you like to see me writing next? I honestly will go off what you say because I can’t decide …
