Coffee is my lifeblood

I must have a cup of coffee in the morning! You think the boogey monster is scary; you should see me without coffee. I can’t function without it. My brain refuses to wake up until my cup is empty.

Honestly, the caffeine is needed, but it is not what drives me to it. The warmth of the liquid. The swirling steam billowing from the cup. The earthy, roasted aroma soothing my muddled brain. It’s like a pep talk in a cup. A reassuring hug first thing in the morning. Coffee doesn’t judge. Coffee understands. I may look a hot mess in the morning, and the noises reverberating from my throat may sound like a terrifying monster, but coffee just smiles and says, “drink me, and I’ll turn you into a princess”.

OK, princess is a stretch, but once I’m done with that first cup, I tell you what, THE QUENN REIGNS!

OK, again, I stretch the truth, but you get the point. I drink the stuff. I do the stuff. An elixir of life! I’m too dramatic for my own good.

Can you guess how many cups I’ve had today? 🙂

Christmas Spirit Giveaways

I think my Christmas spirit just jumped into overdrive. That or I have just had one too many Tim Tam Slams with coffee (YouTube it!). At my salary job, we are having our Holiday Social this week, and my daughter’s birthday party is this weekend. We finally put our tree up in our house, and I have been playing nonstop Christmas music all day, every day. I’m just all over the place with planning festivities and oozing joy!

OK, maybe too many Tim Tams and coffee, but that’s OK. It’s my cheat month! Resolutions are coming up quick.

Can I help put you in the Christmas spirit? How about a chance to win one of three signed paperback copies of my latest novel Alyeska through GoodReads?

Still not doing it for you. How about a chance to win one of five e-book copies of Alyeska simply by subscribing to my blog?

That should put a smile on anyone’s face!

This time of year brings a season of happiness and giving. Bring Alyeska into your life, and I promise you, you will find you holiday spirit this winter in the midst of this steamy romance.

Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas!

Now, where did I put my Tim Tams and coffee?
