Another Good News, Bad News...

The good news is, I'm not dead.

The bad news is, I know this because I caught the head cold Dusty and M have.


Yes, the black hole of disease has struck again. I've been home for, what, five days? Four and a half? And the first thing I did was catch a cold.

So I'm running a fever, coughing and sneezing and... LOVING MY NOOK!

Molli? MUAH! Big kisses for telling me how much you loved yours. Helped me make my decision. It's nice to have an entire library to lay down with where I don't have to worry about battery life or formats or books being cut in half...

Not entirely happy with my droid phone, but loving my Nook.

So I AM working; yesterday I did some posts at the Samhain Cafe for the print copy of Dare to Believe, and I did some updates to my website (like the beginnings of a press kit, though I'm not entirely sure I'm happy with it, and a printable paperback book list). I also did the book trailer for Mating Games and posed the soundless version to my website with the musical version on YouTube. Today I did over three thousand words on Norwegian Wood, which I'm thinking more and more I might send to an agent.


But I feel worse today than I did yesterday, so I'm taking the rest of the day off. Hopefully I can do another three thousand words tomorrow, even if I have to quit everything else early.

Feel better soon! I think I caught the same cold. Unlike you I am nook-less, loaned it to weeble mom and she's a slooooooow reader.
