Friday 56… and a note… in case I’m MIA…

First, in case I’m MIA for a few days on twitter, here at the blog…I have to have minor surgery today.  Normally, I don’t post these sort of things, but I’ve got a few people that I know will get antsy if I’m not around and instead of worrying about keeping up with email, the blog, twitter… I’d rather just post here. 

It’s nothing major, I promise.   And while I appreciate the thought, please don’t feel inclined to email me with get well wishes…I know that sounds awful, and I’m sorry.  But honestly and truly, I’d rather you didn’t email, because when people do that, I feel like I should respond, even when I’m told I don’t need to-I’m obsessive, what can I say?  And I do know the last thing I need to mess with is email, but if you could see what happens to a writer’s unattended email inbox, you’d understand-it’s easier to keep on top of it than let it get behind.  I know I’m going to fall a little behind, but pretty, pretty, pretty please take pity on me and don’t add get well wishes to it…the thought is enough, I promise and thanks for understanding.

Again, this isn’t anything major-just something I need to do, and hopefully I’ll be a lot less cranky after it’s done.  If I’m not hurting much, I’ll still be around as often as normal. However if I am hurting, I’ll probably not be online much until that passes.  Because when I’m cranky, I’m bitchy, and I try to stay away from people when I’m too bitchy.

Second… happy birthday to one of the most important people in my life.  He knows who he is.  🙂

And now… the Friday 56…it’s Veil of Shadows, the closest because I’ve got the reader ARC stashed here for mailing out.

And what do you intend to do when you find him? she asked herself silently.
Her belly clenched. “Is jumping him an option?” she mumbled.
“Jump who?”
Even the sound of his voice, low and smooth and deep, made her shiver. The icy knot inside dissolved, just like that. Just that easy. Just that simple. He hadn’t even touched her.
Just the sound of his voice thawed the ice.

    I just started reading: Dark Embers by Tessa Adams, and enjoying it; first time I’ve read anything so a new author for me.
