STILL LOOKING FOR SUBMISSIONS! ...


Hi everyone,

Hope you are all having a good week. TIME is FLYING and the A-Z is less than two weeks away. OH! NO!

And I STILL need more submissions for my theme! So if you have a book you'd like me to create and intro for, PLEASE let me know and if you can ... PLEASE get the word out. I'd really appreciate it!

I'd like to start writing some of the posts now to get a bit of a head start. SO I need to finalize my list by next week the latest. Hopefully before that.

IS very one psyched? I know I am. Since my eye problems I feel so out of sorts with all of you. I know you understand that I couldn't visit, but still I feel left out. SOOOOO much is happening with everyone's new this and that. Thankfully with each day my vision seems to keep a good hold, so only one month to go to be out of the clear...

THANK YOU ALL for your prayers and warm wishes for my continued clear sight. It means so much to me, knowing I have you all rooting for me.

I also forgot to mention that last week I finished the final edits of my second novel. YAY! It is in my editor's hands now and I'm waiting anxiously for her final critique. Hopefully it will be ready to submit. I have two smaller publishers that might publish it. So I am very excited about the prospect. I'll let you guys know as soon as I hear back from her.

Wishing all of you a TERRIFIC Thursday.

I have a wonderful unexpected surprise. BLOGGER PAL PK HREZO is in Chicago!!!! And we're meeting for a fun early evening downtown. So I can't wait to see her! We've been buddies for several years now and I just saw her in Tampa just before Christmas. So it's such a treat to see her again so soon! I can't wait.

Hoping you all have just as much fun today as I will!

  25. Michael, I can't believe you aren't flooded with submissions, unless others are worrying about the strain on your precious eyes, too. If you are so keen, I hope others are too.

    Wishing you very good health.
