Yesterday morning started out rough. I got some news I didn’t want to hear—nothing earth shattering, but not something I want to discuss. It was basically just ego shattering. Then I hopped on my treadmill to start my daily workout. I have no idea how it happened, but my foot slipped, and I lost complete control. And the treadmill kept on going. Until yesterday, I didn’t attach the treadmill safety key to my clothes. Now I’m sore but not broken—at least from what I can tell. From now on, though, I’ll clip that key to my shirt so if I fall, the treadmill will stop.
Then a friend e-mailed me and advised me to check out the Barbour fiction blog. My heart hammered as I saw my name in the top ten favorites among Heartsong Presents readers. I scrolled down and saw my latest book, Noah’s Ark, listed at #4 favorite contemporary. For the icing on the cake, the Noah’s Ark cover made #1. That totally made my ouchies much less painful!
