On a random note:
I have a pretty big surprise going on for this blog right now. No, I'm not getting The Broken Prince published (yet!)...but it's something that says thank you. It has to do with Christmas, which next to Thanksgiving, is my favorite time of year.
Be on the lookout for the announcement in the next weeks. I'm planning it N O W so it's going to happen. Don't worry! This isn't one of those times I say I'll do something and never do (I think I'm the queen of that). I've mad enough plans where I can't back down now. ;)

Have a lovely Thanksgiving, readers.
