The Twelfth Day of Christmas

Today is the twelfth and last day of Christmas. I’m sorry if your true love didn’t get you twelve drummers drumming. I didn’t get any either. I did get some very nice chocolates though, which is much better than having twelve people drumming inside my house.

Tomorrow is Epiphany, the Feast Day that celebrates “the revelation of God incarnate as Jesus Christ.” It’s associated with Christ’s birth and the appearance of the three wise men.

Epiphany is the traditional start of Carnival season in Louisiana, so I plan to bake some King Cakes to celebrate.

Happy New Year! Here are some updates on the website, and on my upcoming book, I Am Not Thirteen.

  • I Am Not Thirteen is a paranormal thriller set in the recent past. I’ve posted a preview of the book cover on my Instagram. I’m excited to share more about the book as the publication date gets closer.
  • I’m currently working on the sequel to I Am Not Thirteen. Sequels are challenging in their own way.
  • There’s a long post coming up in the next few days. I don’t plan to update this blog very often, so hopefully the little that I do post is helpful to you.
  • I’ve finally migrated aomonk.com to another webhost.
  • I’m planning a subscriber-only book giveaway in the near future. If you’re interested, sign up for the newsletter here.
