Me! Yes, I completed my NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) project. One day early with a grand total of 52, 679 words. Phew! Now I need to finish the darn book. I also have to finish the next book in my historical romance series. The first book, Love & Mayhem is out now. The next in the series, Love & Turmoil, launches on December 15th! Huzzah!!!

Six months after burying her wastrel husband, Lady Arabella Woodbridge has resigned herself to a lonely life in the countryside with only her two adopted nieces for company. Being a young, respectable widow is – frustrating. Then the charming and wickedly handsome Samuel Payn takes up residence in the neighboring manor house.
Retired explorer and occasional pirate Samuel Payn is on a two-fold mission – retrieve buried loot, and locate the father who abandoned his mother to a life of poverty. But a gang of murderous villains is also after the buried treasure. And someone is threatening to tear apart the lovely widow’s family.
Will Sam’s single-minded determination to uncover his true identity threaten Arabella’s happiness - and his life?

We had a fabulously fun weekend with friends – lots of delicious food, yummy wine/beer/port, and great conversation. Almost didn’t want to come home. But we missed our kitties and I’m sure they missed our opposable thumbs with which we open their canned food.
Here is Mogget helping me write this blog post this morning.
Anyone else feeling completely un-ready for the coming holidays? I’ve been putting all my mental energy into getting our house finished. I’ll share a few updated photos on Wednesday.
