Working Hard and Dreaming of Vacation

Another weekend's gone by, but things are moving along nicely. Our launch party was a complete success. We had over 50 people there. It was so nice to see all the people that support us and Fable. There were plenty of friends as well as family, and Toni and I, each did a reading from the book, and yes, I survived it.

There were even people I have not seen in years, surprise me by coming and they bought two books. And, a few older friends that I haven't seen in a while showed, too. It was a great feeling. 

But, now back to reality of social media, critiquing, and trying to find time for the day to day hum-drum of errands, and the like. I have managed to almost finish writing the extra chapters for the novella, Fated, so it should be finished by this fall.

Now we are planning our family trip to Buena Vista and that will be a major highlight of my summer. I can't wait! I have been having a lot of shoulder and neck pain, even to the point of vertigo. The hot waters of Cottonwood should help that tremendously. 

I had a doctor's appointment this morning and he recommended another round of physical therapy, and depending on the cost, I might take him up on it. Between having Graves disease and Fibromyalgia, my body tends to cause me issues sometimes.

I am grateful that those are the only issues I have to contend with since I know there are plenty of people out there that deal with much worse medical problems. It still doesn't change the fact that I am always in pain. It also will keep me from working too much on the computer because I will get nerve pain in my neck and shoulder. It's always something!

Anyway, I am grateful to all of you and your support. It's been wonderful to know there are those out there who care and want to see Fable become popular. Don't forget my blog tour this week. I'm on Shay West's blog tomorrow, and I have two more this week. Lee on Friday and Chris on Saturday. 

One more to add to the mix this week is Sunni Morris' blog on Sunday. Busy week! I will post her link on Friday in this blog. There is a drawing in each of the posts so come join in on the comments!

In the mean time, I hope everyone has a great week and I will see you back here on Friday, if not on one of the blog tours. Don't forget to leave me a comment. Tell me what kinds of medical issues you have to contend with everyday. Because, believe me, I completely understand!

Love, Lisa


  1. Sorry to hear about the medical problems. Fortunately I don't have many ongoing problems other than getting tired, but that's probably more due to my current lifestyle and diet.

    So exciting about the book party and tour! I hope things go very well with sales. Promotion is work, but it can be fun as well. Attitude is the driving force that keeps us motivated.
