New Digs

My wonderful, fabulous web gal has been a busy, busy girl. What do you think of the updates? Pretty cool, huh? I’m still getting to know the site myself but I look forward to checking things out.

In the meantime, curl up with a good book and a thick blanket. If you’re like me, you’re sick of winter and more than ready for it to be over.

Take care!

Okay, so I’m flying in quickly to announce November’s contest winner, post the new December/Christmas Contest at KayStockham.com AND let you know my newsletter will be going out a bit late this month–with a BIG surprise notice inside. 🙂

So–first off: The winner for November is Peggy Clayton from Dubuque, IA! Congrats, Peggy! Watch your mail for your autographed copy of CHRISTMAS IN MONTANA.

Second: The NEW December/Christmas Contest:

I have FOUR current books out or getting ready to hit the shelves so I am going to pick FOUR names from my *combined* NEWSLETTER, FACEBOOK KAY STOCKHAM FAN PAGE and TWITTER FOLLOWERS.

Those four names will receive ALL FOUR of my latest releases autographed and personalized (however winner would like).

Want to increase your chances? On one list but not the other? Do as little or as much as you want. “Like” my Kay Stockham Fan Page, follow me @KayStockham on Twitter, or sign up here to receive my monthly newsletter. Or all three! It’s entirely up to you.

And Third: My surprise. Well, if I tell you it wouldn’t be a surprise would it? So, stay tuned. I hope to announce it very, very soon. If you’re on one of the lists above, you’ll be the first to know. How’s that for a teaser?

Happy December, folks!

Revisions Take 3 – and a CONTEST!

Just a flyby post. I’m so sorry. I turned in revisions for book 2 and am now working on book 3. I’m sure there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I just have to FIND the tunnel! LOL Just kidding. All is going well but I’m focusing all my attention on writing right now, rather than blogging. So, until I can make it back how about a giveaway????

I’ll pick FOUR random winners (one per each week in April) on April 30, 2011, from those who leave a comment on my KINDRED SPIRITS BLOG at www.kaystockham.com. Just tell me what you’re reading right now, what you’re doing for summer vacation, why you chose your pet’s name. Just something fun ABOUT YOU!

Also, I have yet to pick a winner for March so read those earlier blogs and comment for your chance to win!

Thank you for your patience!

Addictions

We all have our own addictions. For some it’s coffee. Or Frappes, iced mochas. Starbucks, anyone? For others it’s drugs or alcohol or–even books. The show on television now about hoarding? Yeah. That’s an addiction totally out of control.

My addiction is with sweets. Can’t live with them–hello any number of illnesses like diabetes (which I don’t have, thank goodness, but it’s a good example), weight gain etc. But the problem is I can’t seem to live without them. I read somewhere that sugar is insanely more addicting drugs like heroine or crack cocaine. I believe it, too, because no matter how many times I try to stop with the sweets–ugh–it always gets me. Yes, I just admitted I’m a sugar ho. In times of stress (like now as I tackle revisions, a new driver in the family, TAXES), all I want are sweets. Candy, cookies, cakes. You name it. Hand them over and no one will get hurt.

Why is sugar such a draw for me? I try to balance my intake with exercise but we all know how that works.

Anyone else out there addicted to sugar? Do you have any suggestions for curbing the cravings? (Yes, I know it’s not supposed to be as bad after four or five days of being sugar-free but—how do you get through those days without killing someone??? LOL )

Fall Fever

Fall has hit southern Ohio. After a hot day yesterday that was up in the 90s, today was a very mild and gorgeous 80. While I wrote, the dh worked around the outside all day today, mowing, weed-eating etc. I now have fodder on each side of my arbor, and on the telephone/electric pole. As soon as I’m done with this blog, I’m off to find ribbon and pretties to decorate.

Fall fever?

Oh, yeah. I soooo want pumpkins. Pretty lights. Things to spruce up my heat-browned yard and landscaping. Maybe I’ll find some silk sunflowers to add to the mix. I looove sunflowers. Hmm…I think I have a scarecrow in the attic somewhere. Who knows, maybe if the dh isn’t too tired I can talk him into dragging out the fire pit and finding some chocolate and graham crackers.

Do you like fall? What’s your favorite thing to do?
