And so, yes, the Florida State Seminoles won the final BCS National Championship last night in Pasadena, California, over the Auburn Tigers. It was touch and go for the Seminoles with many hold your breath moments and several other ‘you’ve gotta catch that ball, son’ hollers at the television. I’m a Southern girl and I take my college football seriously. When people say it’s a religion here in the South, they aren’t joking. It’s a way of life, you bleed team colors, and fly the flags proudly from August to the first week of January.

Now, I don’t know what’s going to happen next year with the new play-off system they’ve got going. Likely a lot of cursing from me and others like me, but that’s the way it goes.

I’m proud of my team, the young ones and the veterans. I’m proud of our coach and the coaching staff he has surrounding him. Jimbo Fisher and his family fight a blood disease in their youngest son every day and for him to be able to do this, to inspire the dedication of the guys on that team… Hats off to him.

I know I’d said The Sticky Cowgirl would be out this month, however, my Ellora’s Cave editor has been working on getting a release date for Slide Down On Me. There was hope that it would be around mid-January, but due to some editing issues and the holidays, it didn’t get turned in in time. It could be late to end of January or it could be early February, now. Either way, I don’t want to put these two releases that close together. So, what we’re doing is waiting to hear from my editor about the EC release date before I give a more final date for release on The Sticky Cowgirl. I have a lot of releases planned for this year, the majority of them self-published. Please be patient as I work out the kinks of it all. StickyCowgirl133x200

And please, if you’ve read The Cupcake Cowboy or Love and Tattoos, leave a review at whatever e-tailer you purchased from. The Cupcake Cowboy could sure use your help 🙂

But you have several upcoming books to look forward to and a couple of new series ideas that are brewing in my head…
