So Kid 1’s migraine is back. We are controlling it for now. We have a follow up on Monday and that’s when we will figure out a more long term solution. Right now mostly it’s severe nausea. She is taking medication for that too, and it’s keeping her from vomiting but she still feels nauseated, which is awful.
But this morning we managed to get half a protein shake and a few sips of coffee into her, so yay.
We haven’t written in weeks. This has been a long and painful ordeal. It seems like I always wake up because my child is in severe pain.
I sent a thank you note to Eloisa James. I ended up reading SAY NO TO THE DUKE, and it kept me sane.
Thank you for all of the awesome recommendations.
SAPPHIRE FLAMES was reviewed by Publisher’s Weekly. They like it.
SWEEP OF THE BLADE will be available in paperback on release date or shortly after. Because it’s a POD (print on demand) book, the company that prints it won’t let us take preorders. I don’t understand why we can’t do preorders. What difference does it make if they receive the order on the release date or prior? I wish I had more information for you on why that is, but I am really dumb right now, so I don’t.
Still haven’t figured out who sent the diamond painting. The investigation continues.
Some of you asked if the deleted scene/short story Misadventure is referenced in SAPPHIRE FLAMES. It is. You will now have insider knowledge of what went on. It fits very nicely with the narrative, so we are stoked to see if you laugh when you start reading those parts. 😉
Kid 2 has set a daily reminder on Gordon’s phone to “poop his pants.” We can’t figure out how to turn it off. Kid 2 is old enough to legally drink, by the way.
Finally, I did this silly meme on Facebook.
I have realized that Samuel L. Jackson is my Patronus.
