Dear friends, family, and countrymen (okay, colleagues at ye olde day job), I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who bought BLISS, everyone who let me know “Amazon says it’s in the mail!” and expressed excitement on my behalf. For those who read it early and enjoyed it enough to post a review or tweet kind words, thank you, you’re amazing, and your cookies are baking in the oven.

Speaking of which, the whole latter part of this week is going to be me completely blowing my Weight Watchers points and baking up a storm… (in the middle of a winter storm, which rather sucks). The reason for this is that I’ll be reading and signing copies of the book at Barnes & Noble at the Coronado Mall in Albuquerque on Friday, and chatting with readers at Self Serve Toys in Albuquerque on Saturday night.  The details are on my Events Page. Of course, I don’t want anyone to go away hungry, so I’m making everything from cupcakes to biscochitos to lemon bars to bring along. Let’s all get fat and BLISS out together!

Again, my friends, thank you for the support, the great feedback, and for being in my life. Feel free to send pics of yourself holding up your copy of BLISS, and I’ll post ’em!

One Day To Go…

I can’t believe BLISS comes out tomorrow. I mean, I can, I just… somehow feel like I don’t want to jinx anything by getting too excited. All I can do is keep my expectations reasonable. Cross my fingers. Try not to get hit by any falling pianos on my way into town.

So how am I celebrating pre-pub day? By scrubbing toilets. And cleaning the kitchen. Vacuuming. Changing kitty litter. Takin’ out the trash.

It’s not as yucky as it sounds, though. Cleaning makes room for freshness, new things. It’s a delight when it is done and your house is once again welcoming, pleasant, respectable. And I’ve got such nerves I need something physical to do to burn off the anxiety. I can’t control the response to BLISS, but I can at least scrub the crud outta the tub. So that’s what I’m doin’.

Cheers, friends.
