I know I’m a bit early, but this will be my last post of the year, and probably for a couple of weeks into 2015. I have my guest author posts already pre-programmed to post, so please stop by, comment, and make them feel welcome.
Before I go any further, let’s congratulate to Glenda for winning a copy of Louisa Cornell’s book and to Bonnie for winning a copy of Callie Hutton’s book!!
There will be a massive giveaway on New Year’s Eve as well.
Hubby and I have come to an arrangement allowing me the time I need to write. The last book of The Marriage Game series is finally coming together. Kensington is putting the other books on sale in January. The information will be on Facebook and Twitter.
Now for my sailing update. It took us three and a half days to sail from Dinner Key in Coconut Grove to Key West. The first full day here, we went ashore, had lunch, and toured the town. Unfortunately, when we returned, our boat was attached to someone’s barge. The story we got was that the anchor dragged, and it was in danger of hitting another boat a half a mile away. I was immediately suspicious. The barge and a sign were in the way and would have gotten Silver Penny long before it had a chance to go anyplace else. Also, our anchor is a 55 lb Rocha, and we had over 100 feet of chain deployed. What that means to you non-sailors, is that it was highly unlikely that the boat dragged anchor for any distance, and it certainly wasn’t on a smooth walkabout. Long story short, the guy wanted $2000 then reduced it to $200 when he found out my husband knew people at the Special Forces Scuba School here. It was a scam pure and simple. We didn’t pay him, but it put a damper on our time here.
However, we are determined to spend a couple of days enjoying Key West. Our thirty-first anniversary is on Tuesday, and we will spend New Years with sailing friends, some new, some old. How are you going to spend New Year’s Eve?
Here are pictures from the past week.
I hope your Christmas was joyful, and I wish you peace, love, and prosperity in 2015.
