Thought I’d drop a quick note as to why I have been away from the blog. My husband was injured at work and had to have surgery to repair a ruptured disc in his back, so practically the only thing I’ve done these past weeks has been running back and forth to doctor’s appointments with him. The operation went fine and now he’s home, upstairs, sleeping comfortably (with the help of some very strong pain pills). He can’t go back to work for 6-8 weeks, but things should be running on schedule around the house now, getting back to normal.
GO CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDERS!!
I normally check my junk mail every few days, just to make sure nothing important went there instead of my inbox. Here recently I’ve been busy, worried and distracted, so I didn’t think to check further than a quick glance at my inbox. I’d been expecting a message from an editor and couldn’t figure out why I hadn’t heard anything, so I checked my spam an hour ago and nearly spazzed out. Apparently, a contract for Petal Pushers has been sent and she’s wondering why the heck I haven’t responded. OMG! Everyone please cross your fingers and toes and hope she hasn’t given up on me.
The results for th 2012 Faulkner-Wisdom competition are in and though I didn’t win, I have four pretty exciting placements! 🙂
Petal Pushers is a Semi-Finalist in the Novel Category
The condensed version of ‘No More Tears’ is a Semi-Finalist in the Short Story Category

Now, I’m off to check on my husband.
