Dreams are expensive...in time and as I'm finding out, literally, in hard earned cash.
After being rejected by a plethora of agents for my YA contemporary book, with a few hope-inducing...."this is awesome, but not quite right for my list" rejections...I've decided to try the self-publishing route...EEKS!
So, off I go, trying and learning new things and spending money on editing and cover designs and who knows what else!
Stay tuned - You will soon have a new (awesome) book to read!
|Finishing the freezing month off with a Frosted Lemonade! |
It tasted like lemonade pie. I'm not complaining!
|Sledding with family in Denver.|
|If you happen to find yourself in Manhattan Beach - treat yourself to a treat here.|
|Finding peace in the clouds, sand and stillness.|
|Had a charming little lunch at The Kettle|
Locally World Famous since 1973
|Because Kelp Pickles are begging to be tried!|
Everyone at Friendsgiving gave them a thumbs up.
They taste more bread and buttery, than dill.
|Found myself in North Pole, Alaska via Fairbanks Public Transit.|
These ice carvers were amazing, but not amused at having their pictures taken.
|And of course, I ran into this guy at Santa Claus House. |
He was the kindest, most jolly Santa I've met.
|And because my job takes me from cold to hot in a few hours.....|
if you're in the mood for Dole Whip or Donkey Balls
visit Lappert's in Palm Springs
|The view and tranquility of this hike is worth carrying the two bottles of water!|
Hope Travis Pastrana and Jolene Van Vugt get well soon
|Beast Mode Frappuccino|
The kale/seaweed (matcha) tasting protein powder might be too much for me
(I'm more of a yerba mate girl)
I've also tried the Gingerbread Tea Latte...reminiscent of Chai Tea.
And then there was the Rainbow Latte at Highliner Coffee in Sitka...it was like a "suicide" when you were a kid and mixed every possible flavor of pop...yep, don't have to try that particular drink again...though I will go again for their other tasty treats.
How was your dark November?
Falling back is no fun....
What are you dreaming about in these dark days?
