“May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.”
        – Ada V. Hendricks

October Transitioning was to be my last personal newsletter until I was ready  to provide the launch date for Lords and Lepers, hopefully by spring 2018 at St. Albert Public Library. During November, though, I heard from many of my readers that they missed receiving my monthly epistle, and I could not fathom the approaching holiday season without sending my best wishes for Christmas and a happy new year.

Now that Lords and Lepers is well into editing, I have not experienced the joys of creative writing; I miss my muse. Indeed, I may be at the concept stage of another book, and during my appearances, I am grateful for the number of people who are heartily encouraging me to pursue this. Still, much work remains before Lords and Lepers will be launched, and I must persist in completing the requirements to produce my fourth novel. Stay tuned for additional updates!

In the interim, although I have finished my author signings at all the Edmonton and surrounding area bookstores, I am on the wait-list for the 2017 St. Albert Christmas Market at St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street, for Saturday, December 2, 9, and 16 for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Perhaps, I’ll be able to extend my seasons greetings in person.

May each of you experience the hope, peace, and love of Christmas.
