Happy New Year! & info for prize drawing

Hi all! I hope the start of 2011 has found everyone happy and healthy. I, for one, am looking forward to what the New Year will bring and am glad 2010 is finally behind me. My mantra: 2011 will be a wonderful year.
This past holiday season was a nice one. Hubby’s company put on an awesome holiday party at the Red Rock Hotel and Casino. For a banquet that fed over 200 people, the food was superb. I’ve been to Red Rock a handful of times, but never to the side where the conference center section is. The event was held in one of the conference/ballrooms. One word for it: elegant. Two of the many door prizes the company was giving away was a Kindle and an IPad. I kept hoping hubby would win one of the two. He didn't. :(  (But he picked up on my interest in the gadgets and got me a Kindle for Christmas. Love it.) The 80’s cover band the company hired to play was excellent also, full of energy. Check them out here if you’re interested:
Christmas Eve we went down to a friend’s house, met some new people, had lots of food, then on Christmas she and her family came up to our place. They enjoyed the fact that hubby decorated the bathroom.
On NYE they came over again and once more we put out a spread.
The drink of the night was a spiked milkshake made with vanilla ice cream, amaretto, crème de cacao, and Hershey’s chocolate syrup. YUM!
More pictures of our holiday can be found in the photo section of my facebook profile.  We played some games, watched the fireworks explode over the strip…well, watched them on television. From our house we can only see the fireworks that are set off on top of the Stratosphere.
So now that the New Year is here one of my goals is to blog more and give you, my great and valued readers, glimpses into my life. Yes, I’m not online much in a social, chatty sense. I’m a quiet, reserved person and getting online for chats or talking on loops or blogging/tweeting about ‘whatever’ is awkward for me. I’m hoping to change that this year and be more visible. I aim to have special guest appearances from fellow authors or industry members at least twice a month, to chronicle what I’m doing in regard to my resolutions to lose weight, get fit & write something I can submit to an agent, to keep you up-to-date on releases, to give you insights into the wonderful city I live in and the surrounding area and to write about whatever hits my fancy at any given time. ;)  Along with this, I’m hoping to give away some great prizes over the course of the year—starting with a drawing for a ten dollar gift certificate to either All Romance or OmniLit—online ebook distributors. Check out their sites here: &
To enter your name for the drawing, you need to follow my blog either via google or facebook. If you follow me on both, your name will be entered twice. Follow me on Twitter and that’ll be another entry. Friend me on facebook, that’s an entry. Then throughout the month, each time you comment on any of the posts (including this one) your name will be entered. The drawing will be held by February 5th. The winner will be notified via email so make sure your email address is in at least one of your comments or you can email me at with it. If you already are a follower/friend, email me and let me know and I’ll enter your name in the drawing that way as well.
Thanks for stopping by and participating in the first drawing of the year!
Wishing you all the best in 2011!
Happy reading ~
