Happy holidays from the farm. Celebrating today (with the hens) because I have a short piece on Brevity’s blog. Click here to read “Such a Good Girl.”

Also, please note that Brevity is encouraging readers to use Amazon Smile to help pay authors. From the Brevity elves: “Yes, Amazon’s relationship to book sales and authors remains controversial, but we also know that many of our loyal readers use Amazon to make non-book related purchases. So we ask that you continue to purchase books from your local independent bookseller, if you are lucky enough to have one nearby, and to channel other Amazon holiday shopping through the Amazon Smile Brevity Link. It’s easy: you simply use this link (it doesn’t cost you a cent) and we get a few pennies on every purchase. You can bookmark the link and make it your permanent Amazon entryway, which would really make us smile.”

    Sadly I can’t read this, Darrelyn. It just says the page can’t be displayed each time I try. I always enjoy your writings very much and I’m sure this one is uplifting and interesting, as well. Hope you are enjoying these holidays and that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!!! Date: Mon, 15 Dec 2014 15:36:18 +0000 To:
