Happy Christmas

I want to wish you all a truly Happy Christmas with all the joys and delights of the season.

I hope you and your family and loved ones have a very special time creating wonderful, warm memories to look back on in the future.

And of course I couldn't miss out the furry gang who also want to join me in sending holiday wishes to everyone reading my blog. So - Happy Christmas from



And of course from FLORA

ie Princess Flora Flooziebelle

I would love to be able to send a card to all my readers and friends to thank you personally for being there all through 2009, for buying and reading my books, for all the lovely emails and letters and cards I've had from so many of you letting me know that you've enjoyed them. But of course that's hardly practical.

So, as always, lovely Heather from We Write Romance has put up a special Christmas card graphic on my web site to send my greetings to you all.

As regular readers of this blog will know, in past years I have donated the cost of sending out a huge number of cards to charity run a vote to see how you would like me to use this. But this year I've made the decision . When I learned that the cost of cards, stamps etc would just about exactly match what it would cost to help a child
for a whole year, then there really wasn't a choice to make.

So through my Christmas 'card' to you, I am sponsoring a child through SOS Children's Villages. These children are all orphans and need so much help and care. I don;t yet know exactly ' who 'my' child will be - I simply asked that the money be used where there was most need. But as soon as I know any more about this, I will let you know.

After all, it's your readership, the fact that you've bought my books that has meant that I can do this. And as Christmas is so much a time for children and remembering the story of one particular child then I thought this was one of the most appropriate ways to say

Thank you and have a very very Happy Christmas

Wow Kate that is a fantastic Idea! I'm sure that child is going to have a fantastic year because of your readers :)
Hope you had a great Christmas.

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

In the back of mind I "sort of" remembered what you do in lieu of sending out cards. I remember the year that you asked for votes. There is a very lucky child out there to have you as the sponsor.
