Holy Toledo! FIRE IN THE WOODS Moves Into the FINALS for the TRR Reader’s Choice Award!

I’m flabbergasted. Totally and completely flabbergasted.

The Romance ReviewThe Romance ReviewWhen I heard Fire in the Woods was in the “mix” for an award, I was thrilled … but I figured my chances were slim. I mean, this is my debut novel, and you have to get a lot of votes to move into the finals.

But here we are.

Holy Cow!

Moo Who

I’m still stunned. Did I say Holy cow yet?


With a double shot of Mooooooo!


The Romance ReviewThe Romance ReviewBut I’ve gone from being thrilled, to being nervous. I totally HATE to ask any of you to vote again, but I’d love it if you would. All previous nomination votes have been wiped clean.

This is the biggie. The final round.

It’s nice to make the finals… but only one book will forevermore be known as the 2015 TRR Reader’s Choice.

I am so stinking glad this election thing is over

Well, at least I’m hoping it is over when you read this. I am scheduling this and going to bed.

Personally, I am surprised that they are still having the election. Many parts of the East Coast of the USA are still underwater. Thousands (tens of thousands if not 100,000 are still without power) If the election rides on any of these coastal states, I wouldn’t be surprised if the “loser” calls foul.

Anyway… the reason I’m glad it’s over is because I want to get back to normal. I want to be able to turn on Facebook and not look at political propaganda. (Seriously, guys… you’re not changing my vote) I am tired of getting calls from Bill Clinton and other politicians I’ve never heard of before (Oh yeah… by the way… those of you who start your conversation with “For those of you suffering in the wake of Sandy…” SHAME ON YOU for using this disaster for your own political gain.

I am tired of people in the cubicle next to me putting down one of the candidates, spouting that their way is the only way. I am tired of people bashing former presidents saying “Sure the economy was better, and everyone had jobs, but he blew his nose in a purple tissue! He can’t be trusted!”

I am tired of hearing people shout out that things I feel strongly about are not as important as the issues they are concerned with.

OMIGOSH! My employer yesterday actually sent out something on company email bashing one of the candidates politics. — Now, I happen to agree with what they said, but outright bashing one candidate’s stance in hopes of coercing employees? How wrong is that?

Ugh. It is just insanity, and I’m tired of it. I hope everyone voted. Voting is important. It is the only way to voice what we want in our government.

But today, as you discuss with friends… don’t berate someone if they didn’t vote for the same person as you. Everyone has a right to their own opinion. Don’t drive wedges where they don’t belong.

And most of all… and it doesn’t matter who you voted for… support the candidate who won. No matter your personal opinion, they are going to be the president. You can still voice your opinion with your senators and congressmen/women. (umm–congresspeople?). They will take your votes to their branches of government.

And if you still feel the need to spread any annoying anti-somebody propaganda… please send it somewhere else. It’s not going to change anything for another four years anyway.
