The revision process is on hold during the holidays. Celebrating with family is far more important than the revision. Publishers will be open after the new year and no one is working during this time either. Will work on SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD and BASKETBALL BALLERINA when I get back to work after the new year.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my family and friends across this great nation. Looking forward to a great 2018.

Taking a break from revising SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD. Need to concentrate on getting our family pictures in a chapbook for family members, Going to check Vistaprint and shutterfly plus others. Want the best quality for the best dollar.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Cherish and Brooks came for Christmas. They have to go home too quickly. Love those two so much.
