Best Christmas Gift!

Oh, hi. Are you still here?
No end of the world, I guess.

Well, I thought FOR SURE the end was near on Monday.
I mentioned that Amazon decided to make my book SUNNY DAYS FOR SAM a Kindle Daily Deal on my blog.

I actually had to find out through seeing someone tweet about it.
When I saw it I was like, "Sunny Days... Hey, that's MY book!"

So I went over to Amazon and sure enough the price was lowered to 99 cents for that day only. So I figured I'd go with it and tell everyone.

Then this happened:
I ended the day as #16 for Best Sellers overall, #1 for Contemporary fiction, and #5 for Contemporary romance!

THANK YOU to those who bought!
THAT was so fun to see!

As well as this:

Look at my sweet little PG romance wedged between all those 50 Shades books!

And then this is what had me and my hubby chuckling over:

MOVE over JK Rowling!

Well, now the price is back to $2.99 and needless to say, JK Rowling is back in her rightful position. And I'm back to reality. LOL

But it was fun while it lasted, and a nice unexpected gift to receive!

On another note, I am DONE shopping and wrapping.
I'm still baking cookies and need to make two pies, but that's fun stuff. I'm pretty much on cruise control until Christmas.

So if you're on blog break starting today, I wish you a
VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
And a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

So how about you? Where are you in your Christmas prepping?

How exciting!

Still have to finish wrapping and buying a couple of little things, but now it's snowing outside (and really windy), so I doubt I get to that shopping. Wrapping will happen today, though. I think. :)

Oh, how awesome about your book sitting at number one... if only for a little while. Kinda like an early Christmas present for you.

By golly, I think we are ready for Christmas. Unbelievable. Good thing, though, because we'll be packing it all up and heading to our son's tomorrow.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, kiddo!!!

GREETINGS, EARTHLING!!! While I can’t stay in this existence finite for long, gotta run back to the Elysian Fields soon, I’d like muchly to givest unto thee, fairest liege, the whole gamut of wisdom and knowledge bestowed upon this sinfull mortal by the GoodGod; yes, it is I who bespeaketh, I only have 77ish-odd-years to live and after that we‘re dead. So, take anything and everything you so desire -if- I can but nekk with you and/or kiss your adorably wise feets in the Great Beyond. Cool? Get back with me Upstairs, k? God bless you, doll. Meet me beyond the clouds to see ya in Heaven, girl. Love you …thewarningsecondcoming.com
