I thanked every blogger! Only right since they put in their time to read and check out my novella. Awesome bloggers they are. Follow them!

I recommend Shannon for your book tours needs!

A thank you to Kelli! She was in charge of a winter get together for authors and readers and I met awesome authors and readers thanks to her on Facebook. Look at the banner she created! Kelli runs – Totally Talented Promotions. An awesome person and I can’t wait for the event in February. Considering the fact that my knowledge of Facebook is limited, having her help promote my novella was fantastic! I recommend her for your Facebook promotions!

The story happens someplace unnamed close to Chicago, Illinois. Why it is left unnamed? Easy. Because, a story like this can happen anywhere…well as long as there’s snow. ^_^

I live in California, but I have friends living in Chicago. Over the years, we had road trips and or Amtrak trips to see them. I have never been there during winter, only summer, but I really liked my experiences there. Our friends showed us many places and actually one of my first malls in United States was in Illinois.

My life in United States started there, for the first two weeks, we lived with our friends until we moved to California. Well, my father left ahead to get settled while we enjoyed the greenery and a big trampoline at their house. So, Chicago will always be close to my heart.

One of my favorite places is Millennium Park. Check it out here: https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/millennium_park.html

Have you been to Illinois? Where did you visit?

novella blurb

Follow the Snowflakes: A Christmas Novella (Release Date: December 15, 2017)

At 28, it’s bad to be single. After four years of relationship struggles, Cat is ready to try anything.

That’s when her friend tells her about her class’ Dear Santa letters. One little boy asked for a new mommy, and she suggests Cat meets the kid’s dad, just to see where things go. Cat figures it can’t hurt…until she meets a stranger in the midst of a car accident. The man is handsome with a sad look in his eyes. He still wears a wedding band and she’s not sure his heart’s available, even if he makes her heart race. But, maybe he’s a widower? Cat wonders if she should resign herself to being an old maid, or whether she could possibly be the answer to a little boy’s Christmas wish, unless there’s a third option – a future with the stranger.

My main character Catherine (Cat) works as a manager at a bank. She deals with customer relations and event planning. Since the story starts on December 16th, 2017, she’s all about event planning and not customer relations.

Anyway, I’m getting off topic. When one walks into a branch (at least in California), it’s all about the look. The tellers, the bankers, the managers are dressed in suits…you can forget to see casual. But, have you noticed the shoes? I believe that shoes is a way for the workers to speak their individuality and I like it… though Cat doesn’t understand that and hates high heels!

Here’s a pair that I would love to have:

They don’t have it in my size!!! But I so would love that pair. I wouldn’t be able to wear them to work!

What is your dream pair? Would be able to wear it to your workplace?

I just love the holidays and one of my favorite holiday drinks is not eggnog, it’s Glintwein. It’s a mulled wine drink for adults. The idea goes back all the way to ancient Rome!

Glintwein is a Russian name for it, and other cultures call it Glühwein (Germany), Glögg, gløgg, glögi (Nordic countries), vinho quente (Brazil), greyano vino (Bulgaria), and karštas vynas (Lithuania) to name a few.

Here’s a German/Australian recipe:

Have you ever tried mulled wine? What did you think? What’s your favorite holiday drink?

So, Deity’s Soulmate is only book 1 in the series. In book 2, there will be more gods, goddesses, dragons. Some drama with the Fates, and some new beings that were really fun to write about. I really really want to talk about them, but can’t…well not yet. Oooo they are so fun.

Anyway. I got some feedback from readers about my dragons. Feedback being – too many male dragons.

My best friend sent me a Dragon figurine and said that’s my next female dragon.

Here she is:

Isn’t she pretty????

So my question for you guys – what should she be protecting? Yes, she’s going to be Gardenia’s teacher but she could also be protecting something hidden in that chest.

Pretty!

Thank you!

book blurb (1)

Time.

Gardenia has a 100 years of learning about creation… a 100!

One can imagine that time had to flow differently from time to time during the story line.

There were two instances that made the time go faster. One, she put herself to dream about the past of the gods and the other she sped time in order to learn about one day of creation.

If you could live for hundreds of years and had an ability to fast forward time, would you do it? Or would you want to live every second of your existence?

Thank you!
