First, let me announce that the winner of a copy of A Log Cabin Christmas Collection AND A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas is...
MELISSA K. NORRIS!
Congratulations, Melissa! Please email me at ericavetsch at gmail dot com with your address and I'll get those books in the mail to you ASAP.
Second, this last week, I had a new experience. I read aloud my Christmas novella to my husband.
My husband supports my writing in untold ways, and he's my biggest cheerleader. But he doesn't read historical romance, and consequently has never read one of my books.
But this week, when I was looking for a book to read aloud (we often read mysteries aloud, and he frustrates me by almost always figuring out whodunit way before I do) he suggested that I read my Christmas novella instead of an Amelia Peabody or Dick Francis.
At first I was self-conscious. But after a couple of pages, I forgot to be nervous.
The best news: He liked the story! :D
Question for you: Do you read aloud? To whom?
