The week has disappeared, so here is the latest from my little corner of the world:
On the writing front, if these rewrites on my historical romance novel don’t kill me … (yada, yada, yada). The good news is that the story will be much stronger in the end. I do regret that all of my reference books have yet to be unpacked from my move last spring. I would love to be able to get my hands on a few of them.
On the family front, yesterday I spent several hours in the ER with my elderly mom. She suffered an attack of vertigo early in the morning and was so sick from it that I began to fear she might be having a stroke. Thankfully it was nothing that serious. Some meds to make her world stop spinning and to calm her nausea made all the difference. She is much better today. We are hopeful it won’t return.
And finally, on the CFBA tour for this week, the featured book is by my good buddy, Brandilyn Collins, who loves me even though I’m a wimp and get nightmares from her books. So if you like really scary books by a truly wonderful writer, pick up Crimson Eve soon.
Do you know someone who’s never read a Brandilyn Collins novel? Should you have such a friend—someone who enjoys suspense—here’s a special offer from Brandilyn. Be among the first 50 people between now and October 21, 2007 to e-mail her assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org with the person’s name, e-mail address and street address. (Due to exorbitant overseas mailing costs, United States residents only, please).
A signed copy of Crimson Eve will be sent to your friend—free—along with an e-mail from Brandilyn announcing the book is on its way, courtesy of you. (Don’t worry. Brandilyn won’t spam these email addresses. She just wants your friend to know who to thank.) No worries that this story is third in the Kanner Lake series. Each book stands alone. Brandilyn is convinced your friend will so love Crimson Eve, he/she will surely reciprocate with expensive chocolate.
And here is a reminder that today is the last day to get into the drawing for Mosaic by Amy Grant. See this blog post for details.
