Jumping in with both feet! from Chrissy Munder

Because I'm now *officially* behind on everything. Ha! We took some unexpected time off and stretched the holiday as far as we could manage. We had great fun (hopefully I'll get some pictures posted), and now reality is back with a vengance.

Did I really sign up for two intensive classes at the same time? I still need to finish my latest Hadley course so I guess that makes it three. But they all looked so interesting .... All right, no whining allowed. :) I haven't had a chance to sit down, review my first 1/2 a year and revise my goals for the next half a year. Best get cracking on that. And ooh, lookee! A property tax bill for the property we sold back in April. Need to find out what happened there.  New releases abound, plenty of blog posts and friends to catch-up on.

Best get on it, eh?

Do ever sometimes find the post-vacation makes you question if the actual time off was worth it? What did you do for the holiday? Or, non-US folks, the gorgeous weekend?

UK Meet: Lloyd A. Meeker

Originally posted by elisa_rolle at UK Meet: Lloyd A. Meeker
Starting from June 1, 2015, I will daily feature authors attending the three conventions I will join, Euro Pride in Munich (July), UK Meet in Bristol (September) and GRL in San Diego (October).

For the UK Meet in Bristol, September 11-13, 2015, today author is Lloyd A. Meeker: Lloyd Meeker can't help what he writes – stories arising from the “between places”, the mystical overlapping between the worlds of matter and spirit, and the eldritch beauty that dwells there. That’s his natural habitat.

He's in love with the adventure and magic of living there, loves plunging into stories full of both, and wants to take you along. Mostly he's in love with love, and believes deeply in the power of love to overcome any challenge. He’s known it in his own life, and seen it in the lives of many others.

In addition to his written work, which includes novels, essays, poetry and short stories, he has served since 2008 as a judge in the Queer Foundation’s annual National High School Seniors Essay Contest. Its goal is to promote effective writing by, about, and/or for queer youth, and to award scholarships to the winners. Finalists are selected from schools across the United States by members of the National Council of Teachers of English.

His fantasy romance Blood Royal won the 2013 Abalone Award, chosen by the Cultural, Interracial and Multicultural special interest chapter of RWA in the Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal category.

Happily ensorcelled by music, subtle energy healing, and the wonders of nature, Meeker lives with his very understanding husband in southern Florida, among friends and family, orchids, and giant hibiscus that take his breath away every morning.

A Cape of Good Hope Christmas by Lloyd A. Meeker (Nov 23, 2014)
Publisher: Wayfarer Press; 1 edition (November 23, 2014)
Amazon Kindle: A Cape of Good Hope Christmas

Chaz and Neil have been together ten wonderful years, but now for the first time it seems they each want a life life too different for the other to accommodate. Taking a break from their regular surroundings they fly to Cape Town to spend a sun-filled Christmas with their friends Jerry and Piet in hope that the change will help them see their situation in a clearer light.

They love each other deeply, but can love provide enough common ground for their life together? Will a mid-summer Christmas at the southern tip of Africa bring them the gift of renewed happiness?
