I got a strange email last night asking me if I had a release date yet for HOME. Of course, as usual, I responded “no”. Then I got an email from Nan Swanson my lovely editor at The Wild Rose Press asking me if everything “looks okay” because she hadn’t heard from me about HOME. OK, at this point I’m more than a little anxious and confused. I tell her I didn’t get an email. She quickly forwards “the” email to me which said-

HOME HAS A RELEASE DATE!!!!! 12/28/11

 

Joy! Happiness!

And- it’s my birthday! December 28, 2011!!! I’m very excited to have a birthday this year. Not because I’m getting another year older- if I could have a birthday without aging that would be wonderful. But-

I GET MY OWN BOOK FOR THE BESTEST GIFT EVER!!!!

    What a wonderful coinkidink, Calisa! I’d say that doubles as a Christmas gift, probably a time you don’t mind the two special days being so close together! Looking forward to it!
