This is what happens when I get my holiday shopping done early…

Here’s what happens when you are so organized that you get done with all your Christmas shopping by the first of the month, and then start wrapping presents to put under the tree:

Oh my, where’s that present I bought my husband? I probably hid it somewhere, because wonderfully organized me would do that. She would think of a special place to hide it until it was time to wrap it. I’m a genius. So I’ll look. Everywhere.

Well, that was a big fat zero. Where oh WHERE are his presents? I do remember seeing them, yes! Both in the same box. I’ll ask Oldest Son. Ok, he has no idea. Very helpful. Why did I give birth to him, again?

Husband says: don’t worry, if you can’t find them before Christmas, you know they’re in the house somewhere. Give them to me when you find them.

No, no, no! I did not buy presents early so that I could lose them and give them late. Oh woe is me! How could such a travesty hit such a wonderfully organized person such as myself????

A thought hits me which seems on its face seems to be far to good to be true. No, not possible. Could it be?

Am I truly THAT organized?

Yes, yes, yes! The presents I have searched for high and wide are already under the tree! Wrapped even!

Maybe next year I’ll go back to buying and wrapping late so I don’t get too cocky.

After all, I lost another brain cell this year.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about This Baby Business

  1. It was originally a marriage of convenience story.
  2. While I was going through revisions for TBB, I discovered I would be a grandmother for the first time.
  3. This book is dedicated to my granddaughter.
  4. I listened to a Sam Hunt-heavy playlist, which I only played during love scenes. It included Leave the Night On.
  5. In an early version of TBB, Carly and Grace got along famously and Grace was a “perfect baby.” After some great advice from editor Victoria Curran, I stirred things up a bit!
  6. Initially, Grace’s grandmother Irene had a much smaller story line. But my wonderful editor Tahra suggested that the first two books had dual love stories, so this one should, too. Thus, a late in life romance was born as Irene tries to help her grieving husband.
  7. I researched being the wife of an AF pilot by talking to an author friend who really was the wife of an AF pilot!
  8. This is my last Superromance book.
  9. As I wrote this book, I thought that our heroine’s good friends (Jill and Zoey) should have their own books. I pitched their books just before it was announced that Superromance was closing. Ooops!
  10. Our heroine’s friends, Carly and Zoey, are the heroines in the first two books in a spin-off series with Special Edition called Wildfire Ridge. Coming in 2019!
  11. BONUS: At least one reader bought the book based on the sweet baby alone!9780373640478
