I'm here! Better late than Never

Well, see why I like guest bloggers? I don't have to be here to blog when I have guests. This is one of my days to blog, but I had a family emergency. My mom, who has multiple illnesses, caught a cold, which on a healthy person would be no big deal. But with an already challenged immune system, a cold is bad news for her. We were afraid she had pneumonia, so I've spent the day taking her to the doctor, getting blood work and x-rays done and running errands for her. The good news is the doctor doesn't think it's pneumonia. We'll return for a check-up on all the tests tomorrow.

So, sorry, I'm late and haven't drawn the winners of yesterday's fabulous prizes, but I'll do that in just a few minutes.

BTW, anyone who posts today through Saturday will have their name put in a pot for an e-book prize package. They'll receive at least the following e-books: "On The Run" by Judith Rochelle, "Take No Prisoners" by Patti Shenberger, "Ancient Musings" by Skhye Moncrief, "Hidden Curves" by Jo Barrett and "The Priceless Gift" by Anna Kathryn Lanier.

Any author wanting to add to this prize package, just send me an e-mail at annaklanier@aol.com. The more the merrier!

Oh, and today's prize is a T-shirt that says "Smart Women Read Romance" plus what ever else I decide to toss into the box!

Who's tired, but glad her mom's not as bad off as we feared!

Anna, hope everything continues okay with your mom. After a recent scare with my dad, I understand what you're going through. I'm sure many of us do.

Take care!
