Projects, Projects, Projects

Since I’ve been buried in projects the last few months, I thought you might like to know what some of them are!

I’ll share about them in the coming days, but today’s post is about a brand-new endeavor for me that I’m super excited about it.

This summer, I signed my very first book contract. I’m working with a fabulous editor at TwoDot Books on a project for the 2019 holiday season that combines so many of my favorite things: cowboys, home decor, Christmas, and cooking!

Could it get any better?

I think not.

The book is tentatively titled Cowboys and Christmas and will be out in time for the holidays next year. It will feature interviews with cowboys and their families, decorating suggestions, gift-giving ideas, crafty tips, recipes, recipes, recipes, beautiful photographs, and more!

The fact my stove died and I had to go three weeks without one put a bit of a damper on my creation of recipes, but the new stove arrived yesterday and I’m prepared to put it through a workout in the coming weeks.

Oatmeal Cookies

I’m on deadline to get half the book finished by mid-October, the rest by the end of the year. So this is one of the many projects keeping me hopping. (But it’s such incredible fun!)

FB Banner C&C17

The 4th Annual Cowboys and Christmas Party is tomorrow on Facebook. I hope to see you all there.

The fun begins at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (so that’s 11 Mountain, Noon Central, and 1 Eastern) and runs until 2 p.m.

The event kicks off my campaign to raise funds and awareness for the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund. Now through December 24, I’ll donate 10 percent of the proceeds from all my book sales to JCCF. You can find out more about JCCF and why I donate to them here.  http://tinyurl.com/readforcowboys
