Me: What are you working on now? Are you taking a little break this month or juggling writing and the holiday rush?


Chrissy: Well, call me a glutton for punishment, but NO, I am not taking a break. I just finished Calculated Collision (Crossing Forces Book Three) and sent that puppy in to my editor, and dived right into book four, Collision Control! I would LOVE to finish it by the end of Dec. I have about 25k words right now, and 70 is the goal. We’ll see.
Then I am going to write King’s Riders book three (Which doesn’t have a title yet) but I know WHO it will star and what their story is about.

Me: Oh My Goodness!!! and wow! <g> Go Go Chrissy! 😀

Chrissy: And guess what!? I’m DONE Christmas shopping! YAY!

Me: 😛

Chrissy: I’m also gearing upChance Collision (Crossing Forces, #2) for Pete’s book, Chance Collision (Crossing Forces Book Two) because it releases Jan 31, BUTTTTTTTTTTTTT it will be pre-release on my publisher, Totally Bound, website starting Dec 20! *squeeeee*


Me: Yay! Pete’s book!!! *Double Squee!* I wants.


*takes a gulp of hot chocolate* Ok Chrissy… before I rush off continue my plan of attack on my shopping list. Meep! Let’s play a little game. 😀





Make the words as naughty or nice as you like…..





































*claps with glee* ha! Here it is!

Madlibs “Secret Santa”

Buying Christmas presents for every family CHERRY is not only stressful but also costs an arm and an ARM (ha!). Which is why doing Secret Santa can seem like a FANTASTIC option. That way, everyone picks a TEXAN from a hat and buys that person a gift, Simple, right? But be warned! LARGE Santa can really FOOT the fire if, like most of us, you like to reRUN presents from previous years. There’s nothing wrong with “recycling” that useless TREEmaker your aunt go you or the SHINY edition plate set of the US PRESENTS that Grandpa thought was right up your CAR. Unless you end up wrapping that present like is brand-BLUE and giving it to the person who originally gave it you. Ooops! Should this happen, you must absolutely tell a big BLACK lie that you EYEpicked the gift just for them. They may not believe a word you WINK, but you really don’t have a choice. To avoid this scenario make sure you’re WAVING down who gave you what unwanted item.

As long as you keep track of the bad SNOWBALLS you can keep re-gifting them!

Me: *Snork* you EYE picked the gift just for themli and told a big BLACK  lie. 😉

Thank you so much for making me sit down for a minute. *sigh* I adore you you know. Have a wonderful Christmas holiday and thank you again for your yummy stories!

Chrissy: Thanks for having me back, you know I adore you as well!
