UGH

Hi guys! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. I'm spending most of it in bed. Bronchitis it is. Sigh. Went to the doctor and got serious antibiotics and cough medicine to prevent it from going into pneumonia.

I also need to apologize to my (hopefully infinitely patient) co-author. She's been getting the short end of the stick for a bit now and I said something that I didn't mean to sound snarky that probably did. UGH! I REALLY need to work on my social skills. It doesn't help that when I don't feel good I have NO edit function whatsoever. It's just a saw something in the ARC that made me panic. One of those stupid little things that really don't matter but drive you nuts because no matter how many times a book goes through editing you are NEVER going to catch them all.

For the record, Cathy is the best. Not only is she a really cool lady, she's incredibly talented as a writer and a genius when it comes to marketing. But aside from all the partnership stuff, she's one of my favorite people on the planet.

ANYWAY, she has developed a really cool subplot for Captive Moon, the book that is coming along very nicely and is up next on deadlines. Right now my goal is to STAY OUT OF THE WAY while she does her thing and MOVE MY FANNY on Catherine because I just DO write more slowly than she does. It's not time to panic -- YET -- but I need to not waste any more time!

So, with that in mind, I'm signing off, taking my meds and going to bed so that hopefully I will be in better writing shape yet this weekend.

Wish me luck.
