I am attending the homeschool INCH conference in Lansing, Michigan in mid May as a vendor and I am determined to have TCCAS #2 published in time for that if at all possible.
I have decided to take a break from writing for awhile to let my brain rest :) I want to concentrate on getting some books read that I simply have not had time for before this, or rereading some of my old favorites. It was been really nice to keep my laptop closed in the evenings and just read!
Just a few days after I had decided to take this break from writing, Rio was having a fit because I took his two adopted mama's, Smoke and Abby, away, both at the same time. When I got back, Rio was throwing himself into the metal gate so hard he was bending the latch. There was no way to get in without him getting out, so I caught him and locked him into our hay barn until I could get the girls put away.
Then I went to let him out, but as I was trying to unhook the chain, he slammed into it again...and my hand was caught between the pipe of the gate and the chain.
Ouch. My first finger took the brunt of the force and it swelled up really fast so I grabbed an icicle and headed for the house.
Yesterday it was still really swollen and it was spreading down into my hand. We thought it was broken, but my aunt, who used to do sports medicine for football players, says its just soft tissue damage and should heal on its own. It's pretty stiff, but I can just manage to type :) So I'll stick to reading until the swelling goes down some.
Now, here is a just released book from a friend of mine and it's on sale for one week only!
I read it in two days and really enjoyed it. I had read excerpts from it on the author's blog, but it was nice to read the whole thing from start to finish. And I just love her cover!
There was enough suspense to keep me turning pages, but it was a nice, quiet read as well. Amy is a sweet character and her plight pulls at your heart strings. Justin, Adam, Sara and the others were very amusing and I had some good laughs and some teary moments as well as Amy struggled to accept her new life. The ending is really good.
All together, a good book appropriate for all ages.
From now until Saturday, the eBook is on sale for $.99 so jump in there and get a copy!
