Friday Five for September 12, 2014

1. My bone is healing nicely, but I've been sleeping a lot. Mending bones takes a toll on a body. I never knew how much. I also find it difficult to focus on things. No writing has gotten done, even one-handed. I hope that changes very soon. (And nope, it's not the pain killers. I only take one at night before I go to bed.)

2.I finally have my contracts completed! Yay! Pop in next Wednesday for my BIG news. If you haven't signed up for my newsletter yet, the widget is to the right on the sidebar. Subscribers will get a sneak preview!

3. No word on any of my submissions. It's been over three months since I submitted my urban fantasy novel. Time to nudge the publisher?

4. No plans for the weekend except resting some more. The weekend after is going to be very busy, so I hope I have the energy for it!

5. Don't forget the Shelfie Blog Hop!

 When: From Now until October 6th, 2014

What: Take a picture of your favorite book(s), your bookshelves, or you with your favorite book(s). We understand if you're shy and don't want to be in the picture, but you get bonus points if you are. Then share it on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter. It's as quick and easy as that!

I'm excited to co-host this blog hop with seven amazing authors: Tara Tyler, Heather Gardner, CD Coffelt, M.J. Fifield, Elizabeth Seckman, Rena Rocford, and Vikki Biram. We'll be offering prizes for various categories. The grand prize winner will win $40! I'll be giving away a digital copy of The 13th Floor Complete Collection for the geekiest Shelfie.

For inspiration, here's Tawa posing with all the books I've a story in.

  1. Hi Christine ... glad the bone is healing up .. and I can quite understand the toll - doing everything slightly differently.

    So pleased the contracts are completed .. you must be happy ...

    Cheers and have a peaceful weekend - Hilary

  2. Just keep resting.
    Impressive amount of books there with Tawa!
    Will be back Wednesday for the big news.

  3. I'm glad the bone is mending well. That's the main thing. Writing can wait.

    I already know your big news. :D

    And I'd look to see when the publisher said they'd get back to you. If it's past that time, then it might be time to nudge them a little.

  4. Glad to hear you're still on the road to recovery. I broke a rib last summer, and it was exhausting. Hang in there!

    Looking forward to your big news!

  5. Sometimes we just have to listen to our bodies. I can't wait to hear the news! Congrats!

  6. Glad to hear you are mending, and healing always takes a toll. ((hugs))

    I hope you have a relaxing weekend.

  7. Can't wait for the sneak peek -- glad I'm a subscriber. And glad you're healing up!

  8. That's a lot of book! Has Tawa read them all? Have a great week,

  9. I'm glad your bone is healing! Writing will come when the arm is ready. :)

    I love Tawa with the books! Hippos are awesome. :)
