Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everybody! Hope you are having a great week!

Thank you all so much for making the 44 series such a huge hit these past few weeks! It's been quite the thrill having people read about Abby and Kate and the Mortimer Brothers and Bend~ Since Thanksgiving almost 100,000 people have downloaded the free Book 1 and Book 2 is selling really well.

Also, thanks to all those who have left reviews on Amazon, Good Reads, and BN and those who have written to me. It means a lot :)

Book 2 is now available on Apple and it's also in paperback.

Anyway, not too much to report in the way of Bend news, although I did attend the Christmas Parade and have been taking a lot of night walks this past week to check out local Christmas light decorations. It's crazy how mild it's been here, although as I write this on Sunday afternoon, it feels like snow is in the air.

I did get a a chance to go on a little hike up along the Deschutes River earlier in the week. It was a beautiful, mild morning, with deep blue skies and no ice on the trail. We walked up to Lava Island Falls Take Out, the spot where summer rafting companies pull off the river. It's also a central scene in 44 Book 2.

I'm putting the final touches on a play list for the series that I will post soon. One of the songs is Mazzy Star's "Into Dust"...I especially love listening to this while reading Chapter 35 in Book 1.

Thanks again everybody! Hope you all are having a great Sunday and are getting ready for the end of the year celebrations.
