Still Alive and Kicking (And Friend Promo)

Hi all,

I’m putting all the goodies under a cut!

Quick health update. I had my (hopefully) third and final surgery at the end of July. I see the surgeon in a few weeks for (what I think will be) the final check up and then it’s just follow ups and Tamoxifen and also iron because WOW I’m still low on iron. I’m feeling much better and much happier with ~things since the surgery, it definitely feels more natural, so there’s that.

Work is still going well, I enjoy it, I LOVE the people I work with and most of all? I don’t dread going to work! I actually enjoy it when I’m there and I consider my coworkers friends and look forward to seeing them.

However, working (even part time) and recovering from surgery is way more exhausting then I ever would have thought. And most times (on my days off) I end up choosing a nap over writing or editing. That said – I did manage to write 1295 words of self-indulgent fanfic on Wednesday – I’m hoping to finish it today, we’ll see. I’m kind of writing what I want? In the hopes that it will lead me back to my original stuff. This is the first I’ve written in probably over a year – so I’m pretty happy, but cautiously optimistic as well. I expect it will be much like my attempts at working out – Start low and Go Slow.

So all that boring info aside, I have two books to promote for friends today!

First is Resistance by Lillian Francis. (You all know her as Choccygrl) It’s book one in her Village Love Series. And BOY HOWDY it’s a good one. And I’m editing Book 2 right now and LOVING it. So give her some love, go check out her book (she’s self-publishing the ENTIRE series – so if we like it we need to support it) – so we can get more on all of these characters! I want to know EVERYONE’S STORY!

So check out the blurb and all the links below!

Second is Velvet Claw by L J Hamlin. She has got to be one of the sweetest people I know and has been a huge cheerleader for me1 Her writing is fun and hot. Check out her info below as well! (This is not an endorsement of any particular publisher – this is support for a fellow author and friend.)

Thanks for stopping by! If I can, I will try to post once a month, maybe – if I remember or if someone pokes me. I’d like to get back to regular posting, but I think I need to get back to regular writing/editing first.

Here’s the Blurb:

Researching and finding cures for illnesses is what Dr. Evan Kidd does best. When he’s asked to help determine what’s making the children of Felis Forest sick, he can’t say no. Evan accepts, and even understands, why Rene has to follow him around town. It’s not every day a human is allowed in the “cat people only” town. But being attracted to someone who doesn’t trust him, much less like him, brings back painful reminders of his past.

Rene has plenty of his own baggage and having to shadow a human—who happens to be a doctor—isn’t helping. Evan challenges all Rene’s preconceived notions about humans and about himself. If they can survive all the obstacles while uncovering the truth, they might just discover they aren’t so different after all.
