Did you win a Goodreads giveaway? Those were set up by my publisher, not by me directly, so what you'd probably need to do is notify Goodreads that your giveaway book never arrived--at which point I assume they'd ask my publisher to send out another copy to you.

I hope this helps--and I hope you enjoy "Homer and the Holiday Miracle"! :)(less)

Review of "Sex and Rage" by Eve Babitz

Sex & Rage: Advice to Young Ladies Eager for a Good Time Sex & Rage: Advice to Young Ladies Eager for a Good Time by Eve Babitz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I loved everything about this book, from the hot-pink cover of the edition I bought to the smart-party-girl hi-jinks and L.A. decadence inside. I loved the author's voice and vivid descriptions--I even love that I happened upon this book on the London "book barge," bought it because I knew the title wo Read more of this blog post »

“My philosophy when it came to pets was much like that of having children: You got what you got, and you loved them unconditionally regardless of whatever their personalities or flaws turned out to be. ”
Gwen Cooper, Homer's Odyssey
tags: pets

“Love is love, whether it goes on two legs or four.”
Gwen Cooper

“So I didn't adopt Homer because he was cute and little and sweet, or because he was helpless and needed me. I adopted him because when you think you see something so fundamentally worthwhile in someone else, you don't look for the reasons - like bad timing or a negative bank balance - that might keep it out of your life. You commit to being strong enough to build your life around it, no matter what. In doing so, you begin to become the thing you admire.”
Gwen Cooper, Homer's Odyssey

Sharon I just finished Love Saves the Day; thank you for writing such a beautiful story. I am not ashamed to admit that I cried.
