I’m doing some shopping today. . .shopping for a contemporary Heartsong to fill the next open slot on my schedule. I like to work ahead so that I know the books I’m going to buy at least a couple of months before I actually send contracts. And I like to give authors a heads up that the contract will be coming in case they’d like to start on it early.

So, I’m perusing proposals today and praying God helps me make a good choice. I like this type of shopping much better than fighting the Christmas crowds at the mall!

Speaking of Christmas shopping, have you heard about Advent Conspiracy? I didn’t know about this when I wrote this post, so I’ll share this video link now. Wow. Check it out. It’s pretty powerful.

Teaser! So--are you finishing out the last few slots of states or are you buying randomly now?

If you're still buying states, could you do an update soon on what else has sold? I'd love to see what's left.

And I have read about Advent Conspiracy. It really makes you think, huh? It's made us rethink our entire way of spending and choices over the past couple of years.

Thanks for sharing about this video, JoAnne! I just viewed Advent Conspiracy and it certainly made me stop and really think about my Christmas spending habits. ~ I'm sure little Jodi is getting excited during this festive time of year! (Does she enjoy all the colored lights? My kiddos loved Christmas lights when they were very young...Mom still does-LOL!). Blessings, Patti Jo :)

Paige, I'll post an updated states list next week. I am still finishing out the remaining states.

Patti Jo, yes Jodi loves all the lights and the snow outside, too. It's such a fun time of year with her!

Thank you!

JoAnne, I loved the video. I tried to load it on my own blog but managed to fumble it.

I'll try again later.

Thanks for sharing it with us. I'm always amazed at what's out there, all the creative energy and talent.

I wonder how many writers are now glued to their email inboxes, just in case....!

I hadn't heard of the Advent Conspiracy. That's a powerful video. Wow!

Now I'm off to do some shopping myself--of the more traditional kind. Let's see, where to buy socks and underwear....LOL!
