Friday Five for June 6, 2014


1. Yikes! I forgot to write up this post last night. It's been one of those weeks. My husband and I caught my son's illness. We're all on antibiotics and not feeling ourselves. Not a great way to start off the summer.

2. No news on any of my submissions. I've read things are slower in the summer. So I must keep distracting myself with good reads.

3. I wasn't going to go to Gen Con Indy this year. Last year, I spent most of the time just chasing after my son as he went up and down the escalators. Yet now I see they have Jim Butcher as a guest of honor! Maybe I'll go just one day... if my son can stand in a long line with me to get a book signed. Okay, who am I kidding? I'll just have to send my husband to do it.

4. Did I mention I was sick? I can't think of anything else to say. It's too early in the morning!

5. Don't forget about two awesome giveaways on Untethered Realms. Mary Pax is having a Roadtrip Audiobook giveaway, and Cherie Reich is giving away a huge prize pack of several books including a signed print version of her new YA fantasy novel, REBORN.

Have a great weekend!

Sorry you guys are sick. Hope you get to go enjoy Gen Con one of these years.

Feel better! I remember the days when my sons were tots, bringing home colds. No fun, but the kids' immune systems soon shuck off the colds etc. Yes, go for that Butcher autographed book!

It's been quiet for me in Queryville too. Disheartening.

Sorry you're not feeling well! Hope you get better soon!

Jim Butcher!!! Did you say Jim Butcher? I'm fangirling right now. Hope you feel better.

Cherie Reich said...

I hope you're feeling better! And that's a good reason to go to Gen Con. :)

Sorry you are sick. My son is sick, too. Fortunately we didn't catch it. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon.

Christine, I hope you and your family feel better soon!

Christine Rains said...

Thank you all. We're feeling better, but I shouldn't have mentioned no news on my submissions. It tempted the submissions gods and I received 3 short story rejections. Now I'll be starting off the weekend with copious amounts of ice cream.

Yikes, Christine,

You do realise when I left my comment there was no post to respond to.

I'm glad you are all feeling better. I'm feeling sick because my first comment at the very top made no sense.

A peaceful weekend to you and your loved ones.

Gary :)

I hope you and your family get well soon. It's a good idea to split the tasks. One looks after your son and one goes to stand in line. Don't miss the chance!

Rhonda Albom said...

Sorry your sick, hope it passes quickly.

Hope you guys feel better soon. Being sick in the summer is always awful. Lol! Kids don't like to stand patiently in lines, do they? Just think how much more interesting chasing your son at these things makes them ;)

I hope you're feeling a bit better, Christine!

Distract yourself with good reads AND good writes -- keep those new stories coming. Hope you feel better soon!
