Faint But Pursuing...

A friend sent me a selection of Dormats with a Difference. This one made me cackle.

I've been re-surfacing so often I feel like an old hardwood floor.

I've been trying to clean up my gmail, only a few thousand to go.

Found an article on Follow the Reader, a Net Galley blog ( where someone from Carina mentioned D&D as one of their most popular paranormal titles.

?? and ???

!! and !!!

Jessica from Novel Reaction posted a nice review and a guest post by me on the values of research.

A fantastic review (and an interview) by the Wayfaring Writer here --I hope. I often screw up links.

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

And why is "abbreviated" such a long word?

Our trees have been flensed by the knives of the wind, but I discovered images of leaves brown-etched by leached tannin on the new pale pavement of our sidewalks.

Like a memory.

I want that doormat!

Glad you are up and about. Also glad the book is still getting great reviews.

Those reviews may mean some extra cash for Christmas. The doormat's a good one. It even gives the ones going commando something to think about. :)

I hope you're back for good!

It's great that the good reviews keep coming in.

Look after yourself.

Wouldn't mind that one.

Lauren said...

That's an *awesome* doormat. I want one.

raine said...

Not one bit surprised by the continuing good word on the book. :)
Sad to see such ghostly remains of the season past, isn't it?

I think abbreviated is so long to make you appreciate abbreviations when you find them.

Wanted to share a tidbit of great news with you--I got engaged! Believe it, and I am so thrilled!

laughingwolf said...

sorry that damn pain is so persistent, b :(

Bhaswati said...

Yes, it's wonderful to have you back. Hope you're A-OK on the health front. Super congratulations on the rave reviews. More will come. :)

Bernita said...

Thank you, Written!
It's a giggler for sure!

Hi Bernard! He sent me more that I should post sometime.

Thank you, Dear Fairy. You look after yourself too.

LW, what if the doormat had a gizmo that said "nice underwear" whenever someone stepped on it?

Thank you, Charles. Hope yours and Lana's was wonderful!

Whirl, you're a bad man!

Much better than the blah bland one I've got, Lauren!

Thank you, Raine. Yes, makes me melancholy.

Oh, Dear Girl, that is wonderful, wonderful news!
He'd better love and value you as you deserve or he'll hear from me!

Thanh you, LW.It's some better though and many people have it worse.

Bhaswati, thank you so much!
It's wonderful to see you. And I hope to be able to visit blogs again soon.
Am still amazed, the book's been out for months.
