I also entered the contest because I found several books that sound like my kind of fun. Good luck and enjoy!

It's the Holiday season. I hope you all have something special planned. I am gathering my Christmas reads and the jigsaw puzzles I plan to take to my sister and brother-in-law in Texas. This year I am bringing Apricot Bars.
Apricot Bars
Preheat oven to325 degrees
8x10 pan
Baking time:1 hour
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
 2 cups flour
1 cup broken nuts (I use walnuts Or. If you are allergic to nuts, omit them.)
1 jar apricot jam (I use 6-8 ounces. You can use more.)
Cream egg yolks, butter, and sugar.
Add Flour and nuts
Fork ingredients together till you have a crumbly dough,
Put half of it in the button of the 8x10 pan
Spread a layer of apricot jam over this layer.
Crumble the rest of the dough over the jam.
Bake for thirty minutes on the oven's middle shelf.
Then place the pan on the top shelf and bake for another thirty minutes.
If you want to, you can dust the cookie with powdered sugar.
Cool and slice into squares.

Other Book News

I signed a contract with Soul Mate Publishing for Irish Magic. It will come out sometime in 2019.
The Spanish Edition of  Mom, is There a Santa Claus? , ¿Mamá, 
existe Santa Claus? is now available in paperback from Barnes and Noble or Amazon.
I think K.C. Snider's illustrations are perfect in any language.
 Mom, is There a Santa Claus? is also available for Kindle for 5.00
Maybe This Time continues to collect reviews. Here's one:
Customer Review
5.0 out of 5 stars Romance, time travel, women of substance...

Maybe This Time
Two things about this book that are delicious: the idea of having a second chance with the love of your life AND the fact that the main character gets that chance in middle age.
If you like romance stories but wish they weren’t all about young adults or 30-somethings, this is the book for you. Ms. James does an excellent job of presenting the scrumptious possibility that maybe, just maybe we don’t have to live with the mistakes we made the first time around.
Read it for the time travel, the spot-on era descriptions that take you back to a simpler age, and most of all for the romance.
A page-turner for all those—and more reasons.
The Audio Book narrated by the brilliant Stephanie Bentley has also gotten very positive reviews. You can download it for free with an Audible trial. Listen to a sample. https://smile.amazon.com/Maybe-This-Time-Second-Romance/dp/B079SHZWQ8/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_
The cover is one of my errors. It's not the illustrator's fault. I was trying to brand it to Time and Forever. But I think the story might have been better served with a different cover. I have no idea how to make that happen.
Acting News
I continue to get acting roles which makes me very happy. This week I filmed a role on the ABC comedy, Splitting Up Together. Next year I am in two new movies.
Two weeks ago I was on the TBS series The Guest Book playing Michael Rappaport's mom. Followed by a quick one-liner on CBS's wonderful 12-step comedy series, Mom. I love both these shows. I Just wish they'd shown the tattoos they put on my character more clearly
I wish you the happiest of holidays. I am for holding down the stress quotient and upping the thankfulness part. Enter the contest. Find a good book.
