Friday the 13th

You never know what the Universe is going to throw at you. In my case, a brick wall, literally. In truth it was more like I was thrown at the wall. I fell and hit my head. A quick trip to the emergency room and a CAT scan later and the diagnosis was “A concussion”.

I’ve never researched concussions before. I had no idea that you should stay in a dark room and limit all stimulation for ten days or that you shouldn’t use anything with a screen.

Even now, six weeks later, I have problems with screens and getting over stimulated. My whole life has been put on hold, so my brain can recover. I’m happy to say, that I am better, but not well.

To my fans, who are expecting a book out this month, it’s been pushed back. I’m not sure exactly when “Katya” will be coming out, but I hope before summer is done.

I’m learning to be patient with my limitations and myself. I hope you can be patient with me as well.

If you are so moved, I am open to all prayers and healing thoughts as I recover.

Until next time,

Caryn

Katya

Book One of the Volkov Family Chronicles

Katya Volkov is all grown-up and working in New York City. She has the unfortunate title of “Ice Princess” because she can’t get past friendship with a man. The only one she ever loved, Illarion Lebedev, left Siberia when she was sixteen and she hasn’t seen him since. Unwilling to return to Russia and a life in a pack where women are expected to mate and have babies, preferably girls. She has worked hard for the last four years at Sunrise Advertising. Now a vice-president, she’s finally accomplished a level of success she’s comfortable with. But what does success really mean when you’re all alone at the top?

Illarion Lebedev has secretly watched over Katya since she was in college. He’s proud of her accomplishments. Now that his plans are coming together and he’s the new CEO of Sunrise Advertising, he’s ready to finally claim his mate. But wooing the “Ice Princess” will take more than his good looks and social position. It will take a love strong enough to thaw her wounded heart.

Daffodils, Bamboo, and…a Book Release?

daffodils

The warmer weather, here in the south, is welcome. The daffodils are already gone, and the rain has held off enough for hubby and I to do much-needed property repairs. A huge blow down of dead bamboo that grows in the no-man’s land between our house and a 4 story Condo building, had fallen on our new fence…yeah, the fence previously smashed to bits by a huge tree during Hurricane Matthew. We had the fence replaced last fall.

We pushed the bamboo onto our property, carted them up the hill to the driveway, and now need to cut them into 5ft parcels and bundle them together so the town will cart them away. It’s a lot of work, but their combined weight could have easily brought down the fence. It also opens the lane by our fence where deer used to trot by. With the 30-40ft bamboo laying on the fence, the path was blocked.

Cleaning up and protecting our property keeps up the value, should we ever need to sell. Are you making a list of things that need fixing? Even apartment-dwellers must plan to ‘Spring Clean.’ Dusting, polishing, straightening, and decluttering leads to a great feeling.

 

Another great feeling? The release of another book!

p.s. Did I mention the main characters are aided by different ghostly voices?
