Happiest of new years, my lovelies. Your beloved Twisted Libra is, in fact, still around. I honestly just tend to check out mentally during December each year. I am not a fan of the “Christmas season” that occurs here. Despite the existence of a multitude of other holidays during December around this world, the US seems to mainly embrace just the one centered around a fat guy in a red suit and a virgin birthing a kid. Simple things like buying groceries or getting through traffic become horrendously complicated due to the massive crowds of holiday shoppers. Christmas has seemingly become a competitive exercise in consumerism. It desecrates my very soul, and so I shut down and avoid the living as much as possible. That includes blogging and posting on social sites.
Now that the weeks of crowds, tacky decorations, and obnoxious music have passed, I feel I can reemerge from seclusion. Some people get depressed in the winter, particularly January and February, but I thrive in gloomy and bleak conditions. The cold weather keeps loud, annoying people indoors and away from my ears. The overcast days make for wonderful cemetery pictures. And the best thing about this time of year? No bugs. They’ve gone back to hell where they belong. I enjoy winter. Sweaters and hot tea and dark afternoons and books by the fire. Yes, sign me up, please. I will fight anyone who whines about how they miss the summer weather. Seriously. I will chase you out of my cemetery, beating you with your own flipflop as a weapon. Try me. Keep your hot weather and insects. Summertime absolutely sucks.
Before I wrap this up, I have to post the obligatory book ad. Come on, a girl has to get her work out there somehow, right? If you don’t already own the Tales from the Twisted Libra Cemetery series, go grab your copies now. You are going to love it. If you have read any of my books, please consider leaving reviews on Amazon. Thanks in advance. And now, the dreaded book ad:
I worked hard on this one.

So, yes I am still alive. Yes, I am still writing. New book expected sometime this year. That is the best I can do for now. But I am going to be blogging regularly once again. Let’s all have a happy and healthy 2023. Until next time…
