A Fall, The Recovery, and Books!

Two weeks ago I did a nifty trick and fell down my own back step. For a single misstep, the results were spectacular: bruises everywhere, grazes, and a badly sprained ankle that still has me hobbling and lying down to rest it. Add in the sore elbow with pain extending to the right hand if I dared try to use it, and I was offline for a week and only now slowly getting back into the swing of things. Fortunately, I can type again, though I won’t be attempting marathon sessions – even if I have two weeks writing to catch up on!

With one tumble, my hopes of getting Shifting Stars out at the end of the month have vanished. Fingers crossed for October!

In fact, my whole publishing schedule is currently up in the air.

I have two more books to write for my paranormal romance series, Old School, but they’re going to have to wait on the novellas I’ve promised to follow on from Shifting Stars in the Shamans & Shifters Space Opera series. I’d love to have Pirate Cat out in November, and Jingle Stars is a special little Christmas tale. Then I’ll get back to Amaranthine Kiss and the wrap-up novel, Shangri-La Spell. I have sadly learned (courtesy of dreaming of aliens when I should have been watching where I was walking while carrying a chair outside) that I am only human, and that when I drop one ball, all the ones I’m juggling fall down, too. Bump!

If you’d like to help, recommending any of my books to your friends is the best thing ever. Word-of-mouth promo beats everything. If you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, remember that you can read all of my self-published books for free! Yay!

  1. Oh, you poor thing! You’re lucky you didn’t break something, though getting banged up like that is just as bad.

    It might be too late but try a heating pad on your ankle to speed up healing through blood circulation.

    I’m so sorry.

    1. I felt lucky nothing broke – I really worried about the elbow, initially. I’d say “I’ll remember the heating pad for next time”, but I really hope there won’t be a next time! I’m viewing the back step with deep suspicion these days 🙂

  2. Oh my gosh girl!! Take care of yourself…Your healing is more important than our reading schedule!! Take the time you need….your readers understand. We love you !!

    1. Thanks, Shelly 🙂 It is tempting to try and rush the healing process, but really that just delays things in the end, so I am trying to be good and rest. Trying!
