I’ve been out of town. I blogged about it here.
I guess that’s why it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since I posted a blog. Because I did. Just not here. Oops. Sorry, y’all.
And when I got home from coping with all of that, I had medical stuff, plus Ian at the newspaper wanted me to work extra last week, so I did. Then I had a thing Saturday, and… well, it was just really, really busy.
So, anyway–I did have some pretty good news today, after weeks of running like a crazy person. Heart’s Blood, the book that’s coming out right before the new year, was given 4-1/2 stars from RT Book Reviews and named a Top Pick! in Science Fiction & Fantasy.
I’m not sure why it wasn’t in the Paranormal Romance section, since it’s published by Tor Paranormal Romance, but there were only two Top Picks in SF/F. Less competition. 😉 Anyway, I still don’t know what the review actually SAYS, but it’s a Top Pick, and I’m happy.
Today is the boy’s birthday. My baby is getting old. He’s 23. (He should graduate next spring? A nasty chemistry course has popped up that he may have to take in summer…) Anyway, we had a card, and a nice dinner (pot roast with herb gravy & Real mashed potatoes with lots of butter), and then a pineapple cheesecake. I’d never made it before, but it was GOOD. Yum. And we watched Star Trek on DVD.
Even in this new version–I like Dr. McCoy and Mr. Scott the best. Karl Urban and Simon Pegg. Rowr.
Seems like there was something else cool I could tell you–Oh! I got the excerpt for Heart’s Blood up on my website. Go check it out.
Now I think I am going to go dissolve in my bed.
