Manic Monday

It's been an odd weekend. My Android is once again refusing to let me listen to voicemail. Good thing I have two phones. I was in a hurry in the shower last night and decided to use the 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner. Only after I was out of the shower and dressed did I discover I had washed my hair with conditioner. Just conditioner.

When I say I can no longer walk and chew gum simultaneously, I mean it.

I woke up--at 4:30, to get Collin off to work (craptacular as always)--and found I'd received an email from my good friend and fellow author Beth Muscat. Beth had been monitoring the start of Final Hours' free book promotion at Amazon. The early numbers are very good, but I couldn't figure out how it had ranked so high in suspense and literary fiction. This novel is neither of the two!

But those numbers are good. I'm going to just hope everyone who downloaded it read the product page and reviews and knows what they're getting.

Then I went to the product page for Chasing the Wind and found a new review. Was it helpful to me? Oh, yeahhhhhh! I think I'll just shut up and stop complaining now....

4.0 out of 5 stars AwesomeFebruary 27, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chasing The Wind (Messiah Project) (Kindle Edition)
I could not put it down. This book has everything, romance, adventure, suspense. 
You will have strong feelings for these characters, whether it is love,respect 
or hatred. One of the best books I have read.
The reason I gave it four stars is because a few pages were repeated and 
all through the book it would change from being written in first person to 
third. Poor editing not writing. I am trying to find the sequel now. 
Haven't located it on Amazon.
