My wise calendar told me this month:

Possibilities are the buttons of the spirit...they hold together our dreams.

Well, that really struck me. I need something to hold together my dreams right now. So I made myself a jar full of buttons to remind me of the possibilities.

Here's to 2015 and a world full of possibilities! What are your dreams for next year?

P.S. There is still time to enter my big giveaway. Four signed books, a $10 Amazon card, and homemade toffee!

Spirits Bright Christmas Giveaway!

Hi all! To celebrate the release of Spirits Bright and the most wonderful time of the year, I'm holding a giveaway on my website. Grand prize is a signed copy of all my books, a $10 Amazon gift card, and homemade Christmas candy. Mmmmm.

Here's a little excerpt from "Spirits Bright," the title story:

 Right in the middle of her best-ever game of X-treme Tic-Tac Cubed, GlobalVillage vanished. “What?” Jacey almost dropped her controller in surprise. No Input marched in multi-colored letters across the faintly glowing holo-wall.
That wasn’t possible. She hit every button on the controller half a dozen times with no effect. GlobalVillage was gone. She pressed her hand to her chest in an attempt to quell the panic rising there. She could handle this. Right?
She glanced at the half-eaten nutribar. She had no other food in the house. Trembling, she ran a hand through her tangled hair. It was Christmas for crying out loud! What was she supposed to do now?
