I’ll start this entry off with a social media post I made earlier today:
Thanks to everyone who has been messaging me wishing me well. I’m still sick, but my temperature has gone way down (finally out of the triple digits) and overall I’d say I’m at about 50%. Still being productive, of course. Just taking breaks here and there. #AmWriting #AmEditing
Yesterday Anne did my Diary entry (and will be responding to anyone who commented on it in a bit) because I was mentally incapacitated. Sleeping, feverish, miserable. So, she wrote the entry and Natalie posted it to my various social media networks. They did a fantastic job. I’m proud of them. So much love. Seriously. I mean, how many people can say that their friends will step in and do their job for them when they’re too sick to do it themselves? Luckily, I can. And the profoundness of that is not lost on me.
So, thank you, Anne and Natalie. I love you both so much.
Even though I was mentally Jell-O this weekend, I did manage to catch up on some recreational activities. For example, I completed the book Destiny of Choice (you can check it out here: https://goo.gl/6Wg9PT). I loved the story, so much so that I immediately bought its sequel. I can’t wait to read it.
I also finished reading the manga My Balls (you can read it yourself here: https://goo.gl/Yiuidw) and finally listened to the audiobook version of The Vampire Diaries (https://goo.gl/4pjP8T). Which I loved. I’m a huge fan of the Vampire Diaries universe, including the spinoff show The Originals. I’m just more of a reader than an audiobook listener, so it took me forever to listen to the damn thing. I find I read way faster than the narrator speaks, so…
Speaking of narrators – I hired one for The Champion’s Gift: A Qedesha Story (https://goo.gl/K9V9A7)! She is impressive too – her voice is unlike any I’ve heard before. I think she’ll do wonderfully.
In other audiobook news, the audiobook version of Programming Sophia (https://goo.gl/uC82n4) is now available for sale! So excited. As much drama as I had to go through to get that damn book on Amazon, to see it in eBook, paperback and audiobook formats warms my heart. 🙂
Now if Amazon could just get Phi Beta Pie’s (https://goo.gl/Vm22RX) jacked up listing fixed to show all three…
Anyway, this is all the energy I have at the moment. Time to slip into a hot bath, relax, and maybe work on The Qedesha’s Handmaiden a bit more before I go to sleep.
One final, random-not-so-random thing: be a voice, not an echo…
