What to Expect – JANUARY

There are some exciting changes coming to Sand Between the Pages in 2015!  Don’t worry; you will still get plenty of book reviews.  The new additions are designed to make the site more personal, so here is the list of changes:

1.  I am back on Twitter!  There is a new Contact page where you can find links to Twitter and my other social media sites.  This is also where authors requesting reviews can find instructions on reaching me.

2. I have big writing goals for 2015 and I will end each month with an update post on my Works-In-Progress.  This is designed to keep me motivated and give me a chance to talk writing with all of you!

3.  There will be a What to Expect post at the beginning of each month.  These posts are to let you know the type of reviews to expect during the month.  I am definitely a mood/theme reader and I like to give you a heads up.  So, without further ado…

What to Expect – JANUARY

January.  Its cold, dreary, and very rainy here in Florida.  I am so thankful that I do not live where it snows.  I love to watch it snow.  I love to ski and snow tube.  I do not like to be cold.  I can barely handle Florida’s winter!!!

We went snow skiing most Januarys of my childhood. My parents would pack up the old diesel Chevy Suburban and hit the road to Colorado.  I spent these trips wrapped in my My Little Pony sleeping bag and my nose buried in a book.  I learned during these vacations not to eat funny colored snow, that I was quite a graceful skier for such a clumsy person, and that falling snow is breath taking.  I both loved and loathed these trips.  See, I don’t like being cold and snow is cold.  I can handle visiting but people actually CHOOSE to live in these places!!!

January finds me reminiscing about these trips and eager to read books about arctic survival.  I am enthralled by people who can tough out such extreme weather.  This is why I am so fascinated with both the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest dog sled races.  This year I am going to keep track of both of them!  (I can do stuff like that now that I am out of school)

The next two weeks will be filled with stories of arctic survival, dog sledding, and mystery.  I hope you’re as excited as I am!  Grab some hot chocolate and a good book and enjoy the falling snow if you can!
