Long Days of Reading…It Could Be Worse!

reading_baby_small

Having spent the last eight days alone in a hospital room, listening to the steady beep, beep, beep of the heart monitor, while waiting for my mother to have her surgery, then wake up again (which she didn’t do for four pretty scary days afterward!), I have found a lot of time to read, as you might imagine. I finished the latest World of the Lupi book, Ritual Magic, which was fantastic, and which I will be reviewing as soon as I catch my breath. And I’m re-reading one of my favorite Urban Fantasy books, Bayou Moon, by Ilona Andrews. It is Book 2 of their On The Edge series, and it is just as good this time around as it was the first. I’m remembering with every page why I fell in love with William Wolf and why he will always be one of my favorite characters in the genre. Maybe in any genre. He’s brilliantly done.

I will post a reminder tomorrow about my free promo for my own book, Summer Magic, and will get back in the swing of things here soon, I hope. My mother has taiken a turn for the better in the last two days, and we are all very encouraged about her progress from this point forward. Thanks to everyone who has written or posted, sending well-wishes to her, and to me, with my vision problem. (I’m coping. It’s not changing very much, but I’m learning how to deal with it better.)

Can’t wait for life to be back to something akin to normal again. I’ve missed you guys!!

  1. Hope you and your Mom are doing well! The hospital is never a fun place, but I’m glad you had books to help you make it through!

    • Thank you, Caitlin. Mother is definitely getting better. My eyes, however, are about the same. I’m not even planning to drive over there today because it is raining, and one gray curtain across my vision is all I want to deal with on the road. Maybe if it clears up later. Feel like we haven’t talked in forever! I’m almost done with Chapter 5 of Swamp Ghosts. I’m having a good time with it. 🙂

      • Chapter 5? You’re moving pretty quickly.

        • It’s flowing pretty well, so far. Character intros, setting up the scene and story line, introducing the main players, giving readers a glimpse of the bad guy in action…I love this part. It’s like setting up a game board. You get all the pieces laid out, and then the game begins, and you find out where they are all going to end up. And once again, I have the pleasure of writing about places I love very much, so it’s really fun.
