December Thoughts

The last month of 2022 is somehow upon us! The weather is so cold and dreary, I can’t get warm. However, I found a winter image I had never seen before, a Marc Chagall painting of a church in the snow. It was so unexpectedly charming that I thought I would share it here. Perhaps it is the deep blue of the sky that I love most.

After trying to get a BookBub promotion all year, I got one for December and it is still ongoing now: My latest ebook, The Knight’s Return, is 99 cents on all platforms until midnight Pacific time on Friday. I ought to have blogged before, but better late than never.

You can find it on Amazon here; on Apple here; on Kobo here; and on Barnes and Noble here.

If you missed the promotion and would like to check out the trilogy, all three books will be discounted during the Smashwords End of Year Sale which now starts December 15 and runs all the way through New Year’s Day.

I appreciate all my readers, especially the ones who take the time to leave a thoughtful, balanced review.

This has been a hard year for friends and family alike. (Even Twitter has come perilously close to imploding.) Personally, I will be glad to leave the Year of the Tiger behind and enter another Year of the Rabbit. The year I started self-publishing, 2011, was the last Rabbit year. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that it all kicked off that year, when I uploaded The Leaving to Smashwords with a homemade cover. (What a long strange trip it’s been, with Smashwords now owned by D2D.) So 2023 could be a good year, a creative year, even though I feel far from that now. One never knows.

Thanks for reading, and see you in 2023.

    Here’s wishing you great health, energy and success next year! It sounds as if the rabbit is a good omen for you.


  2. I think so! We’ll see. Just as I typed that, the rain started pouring down outside… Hope winter is treating you OK, Liz.
