Short and sweet and fun

Hi. This will be short and sweet but I want to alert all of our readers that we're going to have some fun here on the blog beginning December 5th. Several of us will be writing a "short story" with daily installments. It will be a mystery and we encourage you to leave comments, add to the plot, or make plot suggestions for the next post. You can even try to guess what's going to happen in the end.

I'll start thing off and we'll see where it goes from there. We hope this will be fun and a bit of an escape during the busy holiday time. Of course, we know that Christmas is a very special time for all of us and we'll find some quiet time to reflect during the month, too. We are so blessed to live in our great country and we, as writers, are so blessed to have loyal readers who support us and lift us up.

This little story will be our gift to you. Please invite everyone to come by and see what's happening with "The Christmas Mystery."

And until then, I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving. I hope old hurts die away and you see the light of God's love as your family gathers around the table together. If you can't be with family, find someone to reach out to--a friend, a way to volunteer, a phone call to cheer someone up. That's what Thannksgiving is all about--being thankful no matter what. That's hard sometimes, but God is good all the time. We'll be traveling but I'll check in on the blog, I"m sure.

Thanks for announcing the continuing saga we're going to write, Lenora. I'm excited. Hope everyone spreads the word so we can have lots of fun.

I'm thankful for this wonderful blog and all the ladies who write for Steeple Hill. I'm also thankful for our great editors and especially for the many readers who buy our books. God bless you all!

I hope we all have fun with this story. I recently participated in something like this at a retreat and the end result was interesting and amazing (the way different writers take a story and run with it!) We might even be so great, we can pass it on to our editors!
