Dear readers


By Mary Jane Maffini aka Victoria Abbott


The time has come the walrus said to speak of many things: Of shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings.  And good-byes, although that doesn't rhyme.

Not to go all Lewis Carroll on you, but I have been procrastinating about saying good-bye to the Cozy Chicks Blog because I really wanted to stay on.  Many of you already know that this will be my last post on The Cozy Chicks (cue the sad music).  I have needed to cut back here and in several other areas of my life in order to get some new projects up and running and take care of life, health, family and all that good stuff too.

For several years, I have loved being part of ‘the chicks’ and have made lasting friendships among the other chicks and many of our readers.  No wonder I procrastinated!  

But ‘needs must’ as the Brits say and after next week’s fun Christmas party at our Facebook page, I’ll be off.

I’ve been very happy to hear from many of you already on Facebook and I hope we will all stay in touch, personally and with book news.  If you are not on our email newsletter list and want to keep up on the MJ and Victoria news, please send me a message.  detect(at)rogers(dot)com  or find the newsletter link at www.maryjanemaffini.com or www.victoria-abbott.com

Our Thursday chats will be missed, but you are going to be in very good hands with Karen Rose Smith, who is a terrific author and a lovely person. Her cats confirm this as do her readers!

Please come by and welcome her next Thursday when she has her first post and, of course,have a chat at our holiday party at the Facebook group if you can make it. 

Can you see us, Mary Kennedy?
 

Thanks for being such a great part of our writing life. May your holidays be filled with love, happiness and books. Love from MJ and Victoria, Daisy and Lily and the always hard-done-by Peachy the Pug.  We hope our paths will cross again many times.




Good-bye. Life is so very unfair.
