Today, it turns out, is a pretty momentous day...

Among other things, I am a red-head again. SO flaming. I am cutting off the last six inches when Jake comes home and then I will take photos. (There's a quick selfy up at Facebook.)

I have a new book up: Tropical Lion's Legacy. I am a little in love with this cover. And the fan reactions are delighting me. This is book NINE in the Shifting Sands Resort series. NINE. The next book will be the last in the series and that sort of destroys me a little. I both can't wait... and don't wanna.

If you'd told me three years ago that I would have thirteen books published today and that people actually read them I would have hurt myself laughing at you.

If you'd told me that I was going to pay for my own LASIK surgery with my dirty not-a-book money? I would have told you that wasn't funny.

And here we are.

And in other major 'here we are' sorts of things, Portrait Adoption is closing at the end of the year!

I loved this project and treasure above all else the beautiful friendships that it brought me. But I made less than $15 running it last year, and it's due for a big overhaul. The numbers just don't add up. It was an amazing idea (she says humbly), and its golden years were very impressive, but the Internet landscape has changed so much. It's hard to compete with Pinterest and I clearly have better ways to spend my time and energy.

Like I said... pretty momentous.
