Friday Five for January 4th, 2013

1. It's been an unhealthy start to the new year in my house. Everyone is coughing and grumpy. Our holiday stay-cation wasn't much fun with the sickness.

2. Yet the new year started off really well with Fearless popping back up into Amazon's top 100 for fantasy paranormal. I've also won two books and a crochet bag in giveaways.

3. My son woke up this morning and immediately started talking about a big black cat in the kitchen climbing the walls. He was excited about how big this cat was. When I asked what the cat was doing, he said it was looking for food. "Really big food." This made me happy, because it's the first time the boy has told me about a dream and we both know it was a dream.

4. I'm slowly catching up on everything. If I buckle down, I can get back on schedule. I panicked a little lot with how much time I've lost to being sick, but it's not something I could predict or control. It's better for me to rest and take it easy. I can work when I'm feeling fine. That's difficult for me to do. I push myself a lot.

5. Only nine more days until the release of 1302 - The Alpha, the second book in the 13th Floor series. I have a great tour lined up. Hope to see you there. Have a great weekend!

  1. I think it's time the sickness left your house so you can really start the new year properly! <3

    Getting back on schedule is always hard at this time of year, but hopefully you'll be able to get there soon!

  6. I'm sorry you all haven't felt well- yucky.
    But woohoo to your tour and next release! And awesome with Fearless climbing back up. My ten year old keeps wanting to read it and I keep shooing her away with no. :)

  15. Everything sounds great other than the sickness part. In my house the big cat wouldn't be a dream *rolling eyes* Here's to a Happy and prosperous New Year!

  16. I can identify with number 4, pushing yourself onwards is difficult enough but when you feel under the weather, or just plain worn out, you have to give in and rest.

    I hope things are much better now. :-)
