I certainly hope most people are doing well. I am improving every day.
I am going to start with what is happening now then talk what has been going on in my life. First my PA Candice is going to be making some changes to the blog look. Always need to update things once in a while. I want to thank Candice Simpson for updating my social media for me.
I should be at Turning The Page Signing/Award Event. My second adventure Helga Returns was awarded best children’s book ages 9 to 12. The event is in Orlando and I have made all my arrangements just need to have my vision issues improve by April 25th. http://www.turningthepagesllc.com/ FB https://www.facebook.com/turning.pages.33
Just click on cover for Amazon link Kindle is only 99 cents until April 21.
We have had wicked storms in my area which knocked our power for a while. We were lucky so far at my house. Many of my friends, neighbors are still without power and water since April 12th. Some other had trees or other objects damage their homes or property. And some are having flooding issues. Now we are getting cold again and may get a little snow.
I have another book releasing in May. Been through the editing phase just waiting on the last 6 or so illustrations. It is my best work. 4th in the James and Syvok Adventure. Most of my characters from previous books are involved and a new character has been introduced. What could possibly be inside an iridescent cloud. Lots of action and magic in this adventure.
Late February and March were troublesome for me. I turned 50 February 19th. I had a wonderful night out with friends then a couple of days later I became ill thinking I had the flu. Went to the ER thinking they would give me some fluids to get better but instead they put me on an ambulance and sent me down to a hospital in the big city an hour south of us. Two days later I had brain surgery. I had two bleeding aneurisms one on each side. I always have to be equal I guess. Now my brain has gone platinum. I have platinum coils that have stopped the bleeding. It will be 5 weeks since the surgery. I was lucky I was able to go home to recover. I still have double vision issues and my eyes are improving every day. I sometimes forget the words I was thinking when I was to speak. Otherwise I am walking now most days up to 3 blocks on Sunday. Yesterday when I woke up my vision was single vision for about 2 seconds. If I turn my head a little to the left I have single vision. So my left eye is slowly moving back in place. Neurologists said it should correct itself and recovery varies per individual. My last Cscan was good. The second group of words are just off a little nearly lined up as one. My novel has not been touched, writing has been challenge. Blaze has begun visiting me again in my dreams. She just brought me back home last night. She flew me to her and Carolyn’s mountain retreat. It was so wonderful to get some rest and have good company. We had lovely conversations, played cards, went out on the mountain lake behind the home, read, and relaxed in the interior hot spring pool. I got to know their brownies who are wonderful creatures who take care of the place. They became part of Carolyn’s family when she lived in Scotland. They are like sprites or nymphs who live in the woods and will take care of things you did not get done during the day if you treat them nice. So I should be back working on the New Moon
I am hoping to have my vision back or close to normal this week. Yep I wrote this seeing everything in double. Pretty good huh…….. LOL
