Support For Indie Authors Makes Me Happy

It’s been a great week this week for blog posts and features around the internet for Last Regress.  There are some fantastic people out there who support indie authors.

So, a quick round up then of what’s been going on this week.

On Monday 20th August 2012 The e-reader House featured Last Regress as their 1-Dollar Special book on their Facebook page.

On Tuesday 21st August 2012 Last Regress was part of the Spotlight Tuesday feature at Full Moon Bites website

On Wednesday 22nd August 2012 Mother/Gamer/Writer blog featured Last Regress on The Indie Spotlight with an excerpt and giveaway.

On Thursday 23rd August 2012 details of Last Regress were posted up on the Awesome Gang website.  This is a great website for indie authors to list your books.

On Thursday 23rd August 2012a link for Last Regress was also posted up on the Wise Grey Owl website.  Indie authors should check out this great website and their Facebook page.  This is another great resource for promoting your work.

This morning I woke up to find I had received a lovely 5 star review on Amazon.com.  Check it out here.

So, quite a busy week really 🙂

It’s a holiday weekend here in the UK so we’re going to have another go at getting to watch the archery as we never made it there last week.  Of course that’s depending on whether we manage to fix the broken exhaust on the car!  Why do these things always happen at the most inconvenient of times?

We’re also supposed to get a fair amount of rain over the weekend so I imagine that will leave plenty of time for some gaming and reading.  Hubby is trying out Spec Ops: The Line at the moment but I’m sure I can twist his arm to play a bit of multiplayer MW3 with me 🙂  I also need to chill out and carry on reading Dare To Lose by E.L. Lindley, I’m halfway through and loving every minute of it.  I’ll post a review when I’m done.

So that was my week, and those are my plans, I hope everyone is well and has a great weekend.

Time for a catch up

It’s been a while since I posted a proper, honest to goodness blog post. It’s also been a strange, up and down couple of weeks.

I think Hubby’s birthday festivities, the general not being in my daily routine, knocked me out of sorts, and I somewhat dropped off the radar for a few days. Perhaps I needed to reset, or something along those lines. In any case I played the hermit for a few days, which was immediately followed up with the dreaded letter from the hospital.

I’d been waiting for it so it shouldn’t have been the dreaded letter, but they always are, and so off I trotted to see the rheumatologist. What a pleasant day that was! It’s never a reassuring experience when the specialist you’re placing your trust in starts to speak in urgent tones and scribble prescriptions furiously. He’s a nice man but someone needs to have a word with him about his bedside manner, he’s not very good at keeping his patients calm. The upshot is on top of the Connective Tissue Disease, I have a Vitamin D deficiency which he said is now reaching ‘danger levels’ (oops) and I have low Vitamin B12. This is exacerbating the CTD so I’m now on high doses of Vitamin D and also on steroids. Oh joy!

So that’s my excuse for being AWOL. I haven’t been completely lazy though. I’ve been working on Running For A Life and I’ve been coming up with some great ideas so I’m really pleased with how that’s been going. I’ve also had the chance to actually sit down and do some reading (a luxury), and I’ve been downloading some fantastic stuff from Amazon lately. As I finish each book and post reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, I’ll also post a review on my blog and Facebook page.

We’re going to hopefully spend some more family time this weekend, visiting a saxon village with our Goddaughters and their parents so more ‘me’ time, and more time in the sun to soak up that Vitamin D!

In the meantime, in case you missed it check out my interview on Kevin Rau’s website and the Last Regress spotlight blog post at There For You blog.
