>I hope everyone had a great holiday! I took a couple of days off for Christmas, though I worked in the car on the way to and from my dad’s house in Dallas. At least, until I got car sick and my laptop battery died. Fortunately, those seemed to happen at about the same time.
For Christmas this year, Santa brought both an Xbox Kinect and the Move accessories and software for our PS3. Evidently the goal is to get me up and moving before my lower half becomes molded into the shape of my office chair. And I love both systems!

I seem to have damaged my right rotator cuff by viciously stabbing and jump-attacking #1 in the Colosseum. Good thing I have this manuscript to polish while I’m recovering from my video game injury.
Aside from that, do you know what today is? Well, it might be the official shelf date for My Soul To Steal. It’s one of the dates, anyway. And if you haven’t been able to find it on the shelf yet, you should be able to by Jan 1, in the US, Canada, and Australia.

Trying to work things out with
Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just
pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their
relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to
take Nash back.
See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara,
the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft
them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she
And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to
death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.
I DON’T THINK SO.
