Breaking News!

For the first time in my writing career, I am self-publishing my latest series!

It’s fun and exciting. I can put out books as often as I like, rather than waiting for a publisher to set a schedule, and write what I want, instead of what the publisher expects. A very freeing experience, but also a ton of work. I would never self-publish a novel without first hiring a cover designer and a veteran editor to critique and help me craft each book into my best work yet. I also hire someone to correct spelling and punctuation errors.

The series is set in the fictitious town of Guff’s Lake, Oregon, in the heart of the Rogue Valley. Twelve month and 12 of the hottest firefighters ever, each appearing  on a different month on a firefighter calendar. This is why I call the series,Heroes of Rogue Valley: Calendar Guys.

All books will be stand-alone books, which means you can read them in any order.

Now for the breaking news:

drum-roll-please

The first two books of the series are out now!!

Meet Mr. January, the first hero featured in my Heroes of Rogue Valley: Calendar Guys series. Now available in print and ebook format I loved writing this book and am having so much fun with the series.

Currently, I am hard at work on Mr. March. I’m not the fastest writer on the block, but I’m making good progress.

Happy reading, and thanks for letting me share this exciting news.

Until next time,

Winter Solstice is almost here!

 

winter-solstice

This year,  Winter Solstice, aka the shortest day of the year and the first day of winter, officially begins Sunday at 5:03 pm (not sure in which time zone).

At our house, well be ushering it in a day early, with a Winter Solstice party.  We do this to mark the return of longer days (which seem a little slow on the uptake, but they are coming).  I’m not exactly sure what year we started this tradition, but it’s been happening for close to a decade now.

crackle fire

Friends and family join us for a festive evening of food, drink, laughter and conversation around a crackling fire in the living room. If the living room gets too crowded, and it often does, there are other places to congregate–around the laden dining room table or in the kitchen or the family room or a hallway.

Everyone seems to enjoy this brief break from the Christmas frenzy, and we love the chance to catch up with people we haven’t seen in a while.

Thanks for letting me share one of our traditions, and take heart–the light is returning,

Ann
