Wowser! What a week. Yesterday I got my author copies for A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS. The thrill never goes away. Then, today I got the cover art for my January SuperRomance, HOME TO HARMONY. They nailed the dog this time. Not sure about the hero. What do you think?

Also, I need a suggestion for a dog to put in the book I’m working on now. Has to be baby-friendly and big.

To celebrate my news, I’m giving away 3 of my backlist to those who make a suggestion and give me reasons why on my blog–get there from http://www.dawnatkins.com.

SAVE ME from the Fat Season

October 5, 2010

The Fat Season has officially begun. Help! I have a love/hate relationship with October, November and December. The love is obvious, but the hate is related to food, specifically sweets in my case. Halloween, Thanksgiving (a little, since the traditional holiday foods aren’t my favorite indulgences–well, except for homemade rolls), and then Christmas with all the parties and cookies and alcohol and candy everywhere you go just about kills me.

I’ve maniacally exercised and been militant about staying lowish carb for the last couple months and I’m nearly my target weight.

Yet, I can easily slap on 10 pounds in the next month or so, while STILL exercising madly. Desperately need tips for controlling self at parties, etc., to not lose the ground I’ve gained. I’m watching THINtervention AND America’s Biggest Losers in self defense…. Help!

I’ve threatened my husband if he brings home any of the homemade or high-end food gifts his patients bring him I will divorce him.
