If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

Blindsided Tour

Today I'm sneaking in on the last day of KYRA LENNON'S (WRITE HERE WRITE NOW) Blindsided Blog Tour.

Kyra is promoting her book, Blindsided, which really does sound like a fun story! Just to give you a quick synopsis:

After a successful first soccer season in L.A., Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, Hunter, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationship with Hunter's cousin, Isabelle. 

Issabelle Mills lives in Notting Hill with her parents and her twin sister, Georgia. When she finds out her cousin is coming to stay, along with his famous soccer player friend, her first instinct is to hibernate until they've gone. However, once she meets Jesse, everything changes. He's everything she's ever wanted, but with so many obstacles in their path, can she really risk putting her heart on the line/ 

For the purpose of the Bloghop, Kyra asked us to post Christmasy pictures of ourselves, so here you go! I hate pictures of myself, so I am doing this purely in the spirit of Christmas!! :)

How are you guys all doing?  Are you finding it difficult to write throughout the Christmas Season? Any tips on time management that you want to share? Has anyone been inspired to write about the Season? And...along those lines...does anyone have a good book recommendation. Something YA and Christmasy?

And there. This is all the Christmas spirit anyone is getting from me. haha


  1. Hi Tamara .. great photos - loved them! I'm so looking forward to reading Kyra's book - you certainly look in the spirit of Christmas.

    Cheers and happy preparations .. Hilary

  2. Oh, look how cute you are!

    My only tip for writing through the holidays is to commit to Amazon in January. I have NEVER had any trouble procrastinating my shopping to the last minute because I am WRITING! That January deadline does wonders. (I am actually not writing, but editing... but whatever...

  3. Love the festive look! I am struggling with time management myself at the moment so no wise words I'm afraid, but I plan to hit a new project in the New Year.

  4. You look wonderfully festive! I've been trying to write, but it looks like I'm just going to have to give up for a couple days. Hope you get a few words down :)

  5. That book sounds good!

    I am having a bit of trouble getting in the Christmas spirit this year. I am hoping some sugar cookies, hot chocolate, and looking at lights will help. Something nice and relaxing.

  6. Well, those picture are worth of Christmas cards! Beautiful. :)

  7. Super pics! I am having trouble writing anything this Dec!

  8. Kyra's book looks awesome! I've seen it featured on other blogs.

    Love the pics. Very festive!

  9. Oh, you rock! What a great entry! Thanks for being part of the Christmas photo bloghop!

    1. Your welcome Kyra! Hope your book does really well!! :)


I love to hear from everyone! Thanks for the comment. :)
