The Celtic Fan is a reality! Thanks to everyone who made this book happen. I'd especially like to thank BB eBooks, my file conversion company, for the extra-special effort they put in to make this book look fabulous.

Special thanks goes to Carrie, the fabulous artist who did the artwork of the Celtic knot that appears not only on the model (yes, that's me!), but as glyphs throughout the book and on the back cover. Carrie brought the dream I'd had for thirteen years to light, and I can't thank her enough. I have a goal, and when it's met, you are all going to be treated to a video of me actually getting the artwork tattooed on ME!

At the bottom of this page is the Rafflecopter form for the gift I'm giving here. Take a look!

This is a beautiful brass cuff bracelet made by Kate over at Jezebel Charms across the pond. It's absolutely lovely. And in case you're wondering, that's a quote from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Take a minute to fill out the Rafflecopter form, look over the requirements, and the winner will be announced on Sunday, February 23, 2014. Since it's coming from Great Britain, it may take a little while to get it to you, but get it to you I shall!

Check out the blogs where my blitz is running - I'm giving away signed copies of The Celtic Fan, either in the ebook format of your choice or in print! Go and visit, please, and let these bloggers know you appreciate their work and hearing about my book from them.

In the meantime, hope you're getting ready to sit down with your copy of The Celtic Fan and get a little reading in. It's still cold outside - what better way to pass the time? And send me a message or start a convo here to let me know what you thought of the book. I'd love to hear from you!

There will be a giveaway - oh yes, there will

I've made a decision. There will be a giveaway here to celebrate the release of The Celtic Fan. I'd like to be able to go ahead and post pics, but I've put in a request to the artist to use one of her photos so everyone can see how beautiful it is. Hopefully I'll hear from her by tomorrow. If not, I'll just redirect everyone so they can go to her site and see it there.

It's getting closer!

Meatloaf! Grrrrrrrr!!!!!!

Tonight I made four batches of Nikki's meatloaf. Yeah, it's that good. I'll freeze a bunch of it. Here's what it looked like on my plate - it wasn't there long.

Why does my phone's camera make everything look an unappetizing shade of green? I have no idea. Just trust me, it tasted spectacular. To the right of it is boiled okra (the slimier the better) and at the bottom is roasted root vegetables (rutabagas, turnips, and carrots).

Then I found out that the guys all had custom aprons made for the girls. They're really cute.

For Nikki: "The cook in this apron is mine. Get your own. - Tony Walters"

For Laura: "I'm the only one who gets to see what's under this apron. Fuck off. - Vic Walters"

For Brittany: "Under this apron is the world's greatest mom. And my very own MILF. - Clayton Walters"

And Katie and Annabeth got themselves matching aprons: "We take turns in the kitchen. You're not invited."

Jeez, that Walters bunch. I wish my partner would come up with a cute apron for me. Nah - never gonna happen.

Oh, well, I'm off to scrub some meatloaf pans . . .
