Winner of the JDP NEWS After-the-Holidays Drawing

Congratulations to Lisa Risdon of Ohio for winning the JDP NEWS After-the-Holidays Drawing! Lisa is the winner of the following:

This "relaxation" basket

these "relaxation
" accessories

and an autographed copy of my medieval novel, Loyalty's Web.

Congratulations, Lisa! Thanks to all of you who entered! (And yes, the answer to the question was, "The crossbow".)

Now, for those of you who have already read a copy of Loyalty's Web (or for anyone who might simply be curious), I'd like to announce the debut of my new blog, Medieval Vignettes. As I explain on the blogsite:

"Medieval Vignettes is not a short story site. It is more of a "flashback" site. The scenes that appear here are based on characters from the medieval novels of Joyce DiPastena. And they are just that...scenes, or perhaps sometimes even bits of a scene. They may or may not all have a "beginning, middle and end". But they will each shed some light on the characters, their thoughts, their relationships to each other or to the environment around, political, etc...outside the confines of my novels. These are mostly scenes "from the past" that are referenced in my novels, and may or may not be of any special significance to my novels' actual story lines. I've created this site "just for fun"... my own, and hopefully for my readers."

Please visit soon and let me know what you think!

A Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to you all!
