Holly Jacobs’ CONTEST WEEK!

You’ll all be entering to win a free, signed copy of “UNEXPECTED GIFTS”

Teacher Eli Cartwright has it all figured out—the career, the reliable boyfriend and the next few dependable decades. But life has quite a sense of humor, it seems, since her perfectly ordered existence has been completely upended. Because now Eli is counseling pregnant teens—with an unplanned pregnancy of her own!
So Eli is single, terrified…and exuberant. And her colleague, Zac Keller, has never been more attracted to her. But can he convince Eli that life sometimes offers more than one unexpected gift at a time?
9 Months Later: It’s not what they’re expecting.

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Hey Sweetie - I got your guesses!

It's been crazy for me too. Got back last night from the retreat - learned a whole lot and now just getting caught up on the things around here (again) and getting ready for two private writers retreats that I'm part of.

Other than that - the hurricane one that's passing me here on the West coase of Florida - just has me a wee bit concerned for's going in near her.

I didn't get on the computer until late today (as you can see) I've been under the weather for a few days but the extra sleep did me well.

Crazy on your end?? OMG, I'll have to drop over there tonight or tomorrow and find out what's happening!

I Love ya' darlin'

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile Sweetie!

I got your guesses!

Man that must have been some RUM ---

OH NO!!!
I was at the retreat with he couldn't have been with no no, I'm keeping him!

Well after all the rum some of you girls had - I won't name names - but I had to toss out the cross word puzzle for an easier contest....just to keep it fair.
But I will hit you with it one day soon! ;-) then you'll be working your little pencils to the bone!

I'll write ya' later!
Big hugs me dear!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Christine -

OMG, are you sure she's alright?

I've been so busy with traveling and such, I haven't had time to write her...tell her to drop me a line.

Thanks for letting me know.
I adore you.

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile said...

MV, I am so glad to see you up and awake honey. I was getting worried about you, not to mention fussed too for giving you to much rum and m&m's! Two Bran's... Now we can handle that honey!
I am glad that you resurfaced! Hope all is well!
And you are right, as long as you have a stash of M&M's in your pocket, life will be okay!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Tha winking baby isn't me -I had a head of black hair and I was a very tiny baby. Remember there were three of me to start...we ended up as twin but we started out as three.

I got you're guess.

Glad to see you're among the living...xoxoxo NO MORE RUM FOR YOU!


M.V.Freeman said...

LOL! Rats, no more rum.
I do have a fine bottle of red whine...I mean Wine, when you are ready. Cecile, do you want to have some?

I appreciate y'all asking about me. :) Thank you!!!

Back to the grindstone.

Cecile said...

Oh MV has some wine.... I am in honey... Pop open the bottle and pass it around. Think we can snag Bran away from Hawk to see if he would like to "indulge" with us!! Hee hee!!!
Glad to see you are out and about MV!!!
Psss... I have more m&m's & chocolate chip cookies too!!

M.V.Freeman said...

Time to party Cecile!
woohoo! :)
Hmm, does Bran have any brothers?

Cecile said...

I am sure he does... why don't we go seek and find out... lol!!!
Woohoo... **sshhsss** Party time!
How have you been my friend?

M.V.Freeman said...

Cecile, Oooh, brothers...lets see what we can find.

I have been doing well, life seems to be a bit chaotic(hence my wine party). I am thinking next time we need to break out the mead or the egg nog...its getting to that time of year! How are you?

And Hawk may the wings of great things touch you today! And for you as well Cecile...and all of us who walk through the shadows of our own inner selves to write!

Yep, feeling a bit poetic there today. LOL

Vicki said...

M.V - your words were/are beautiful. Just had to tell you.

Liza said...


Not really sure how I did as I had to guess on a few of them. I knew several of the picture right off. Fun, but hard contest Hawk.

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Hey sweetie I got your answers...What do you mean a hard contest??? This was easy...I had a harder one and didn't use it.

Come on...are you girls getting soft on me? O.K., next one I'll make really easy...but you better be paying'll only be easy if you're watching the blog! ;-) teehehehehe

Hugs Darlin'

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Hey Honey - Did I hear you say wine? After the day I had...pass a glass and I'll give you Bran for it!
Oh you way and all his brothers will be here on Sunday...thanks to Cecile!

{;-) wait till you see the eye candy she's been sending me!

Hon, thank you for the wonderful, heartfelt words...I love your soul darlin'! You're a beautiful person inside and out. (((Cyber hugs)))

M.V.Freeman said...
