That's what deadlines do, apparently! They make you disappear while you figure out the intricacies of emotion, plot, and resolutions to all problems so you can have the HEA. I'm coming down to the wire (and The End) and working pretty steadily. I also have to make time for a little bit of a personal life. 🙂 In fact, the hubby and I watched a program on the Travel Channel the other day about the best hot dogs in the US. Oh dear. I'm not much of a hot dog eater normally, but I've had such a craving the last few days. And my local grocery store sells Nathan's hot dogs, which are Coney Island dogs and were featured on the show. We had them last night — and OMG, heavenly!

There is also, apparently, a seriously cool place in Atlanta called The Varsity which has been selling hot dogs for decades. Now I want to make a quick run to Atlanta for a hot dog. Is that crazy?

Aside from craving hot dogs, I've also found time to mail out books — so if you won a copy of SPANISH MAGNATE, RED-HOT REVENGE from me, it's on the way!! I hope you'll let me know what you think.

I did promise to pick a winner from last week's giveaway! Without further ado, my scientifically approved method has drawn Mari from the comments.

Mari, please email me your contact info and I'll get a signed copy in the mail to you!

Who likes hot dogs? What do you like on them? I'm a mustard and relish gal, but I've had a Chicago dog before and loved all that stuff they cram on top of the dog. My favorite kinds of hot dogs, btw, are all beef in casings (like Nathan's). Not much of an Oscar Meyer/Ballpark/etc fan. What about you?
