Holidays trump writing

The holidays–what can I say? Things get busy. BLOOD LUST, my new Fallen Angels novel, is now on Amazon,, but I haven’t gotten around to advertising it anywhere yet. Decorating the house, my writers’ club carry-in, and special get-togethers have swallowed a lot of my time. My poor book got caught in the crush. To promote it a little, I’m going to offer Fallen Angels for free from December 26 through the 30th. Blood Battles will be 99 cents, and BLOOD LUST will be $2.99. I’m trying to set up a sign-up for an author newsletter on mailchimp so that I can send out e-mails when I have something new to offer or specials for readers who are interested. I was hoping Mailchimp would be easy. It looked easy, like something even I could manage, but so far, I posted a campaign, but can’t figure out how to send it. I keep getting a message about cookies–not the type I bake for Santa–the internet kind. I’ve deleted them and my past history, but that didn’t do the trick. I’m still struggling. Wish me luck. Any ideas…?

This coming week, I need to get the house and food ready for guests. My grandson’s staying with us over his Christmas break from college, and my daughter and son-in-law from Florida are staying from the 22nd to the 27th or 28th. The house will be full, and I love it when that happens. That means I won’t really get my wits about me again until January, so my writing and promoting will just have to hum Christmas carols until I can get to them again. Sometimes, I give in and let life interfere instead of trying to juggle too many things. I’d rather not get frustrated. I love my writing AND my friends and family. I’d like to keep it that way…and stay sane. Hope you keep your sense of balance, too.

Whether you’re writing or the holidays have claimed you, enjoy!
