Make Someone Happy

51NuBzmRYhL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_The other day, I received a card from Lynn Obermoeller, the Queen of Letter-Writing.

I’m not sure if she calls herself the Queen, exactly, but that’s how I think of her. She sends lovely notes all the time, and she makes her holiday cards. The notes are a work of art, and her words are always heartfelt and cheery–and I feel pretty special when I receive a card from Queen Lynn. And who wouldn’t feel special, knowing that someone took the time to do something special?

Which brings me to Fifty Shades of Santa, an anthology of holiday stories (wherein Lynn has a story, and Donna Volkenannt, too. She often stops by here with a lovely comment. And Marcia Gaye, another Missouri writer friend, is in there as well!). And though I have this Kindle book, and have read both of their stories, I haven’t left a lovely review of the book.

And now I’m fifty shades of red! Writing a review is such a simple thing to do and yet, it’s often forgotten in the rush of writer deadlines and rewrites and challenges.

So. There are several books in my Kindle library that I’ve read and not reviewed yet–and a few that I haven’t quite got ’round to reading. I’m challenging myself–and you–to write a review or two before 2014 comes to a close. Because I know how special a person feels when someone takes the time to do something special.

  1. Oh my, I feel so honored. Thank you. This latest Christmas card is actually drawn by me too! Ha, a friend thought it was a rubber stamp. I haven’t been on FB or blogland lately, and look all that I miss. Egads.

  2. Lynn is more powerful than the Card QUEEN. I’d say the “Dictator of Cards” but dictators are mean and Lynn is the exact opposite of mean. Enjoy the book. The stories are entertaining…
