If you could see my office, you would faint dead away, *faint*, I say!
I have wrapped and unwrapped gifts sprawled out everywhere, half-completed holiday knitting projects crammed in the corners, and two printed stacks of paper (Dead Iron revisions) fighting for desk space with glittery cards (why-o-why did I buy glittery cards?!) plus a bazillion notes, packing supplies, ribbons, coffee cups, and to-do lists (and odd little notes like, “kitswee”=Chinook lingo for “money”) everywhere!

Let’s do a quick update:
Proofs for MAGIC ON THE HUNT have been turned in.
Cover input/blurb/title etc., for Allie Beckstrom book #7 (I haven’t gotten the go-ahead on the title yet, so can’t share) have been turned in.
