Thanks From Me and Pink Robe

Where have I been, you ask? Living in Pink Robe.

That's me looking good in Pink Robe. Right now, I don't look like that. I look pale and pasty and sick. When I'm sick, I go straight for Pink Robe.

She's been pretty good to me over the last week, Pink Robe has, but I'm still a big ol' sickie. Hopefully I'll be better soon...but thank God for Pink Robe.

Though I haven't gotten much of anything done while I've been a sickie, my book has been out gallivanting, strutting her stuff, finding her way to,, Goodreads, and to my surprise, she's been blog hopping!

After I posted the cover reveal for Oppression, I stumbled across several blogs that had shared my excitement and spread the news about my book. It was a little surreal...

My eyebrows squinched (made up word) together and my first thought was, "Wait, someone other than my mom is excited about my book?" Then I was struck with the realization that people actually read my blog and know about my novel. It was a weird moment. A really strange but awesome moment. In any case, back to my point, I wanted to say thank you to those who posted about Oppression or contacted me regarding a review or just to tell me how excited you are about it. I figured the least I could do was link back to your blogs (which would also prove that I'm not making this up...people are really talking about my book).

Lots of love blogger friends. You made my being sick so much better with your posts!! Please check out the posts on Oppression below:

*If I didn't come across your post on Oppression, let me know. I would love to read it! Thanks again so much!

Anyone else been sick this holiday? If so, what made you smile through the coughing?


  1. Hope you feel better. I have been sick all week as well. Grats on all the exciting book love!

  2. Hope you are feeling better soon.

    Love your cover!

    Happy New Year!

  3. Sorry you've been sick...
    I can imagine how exciting this time must be for you! And thanks for some new links to bloggers :-)

  4. Happy New Year, sweetie! Yes, I've been so's ridiculous. And how awesome is it that even though you've been sick, there's a ton a buzz about Oppression? That's wonderful. And the cover is indeed beautiful!

  5. Yes, I have been sick this holiday season and the answer to your other question is not much. Obviously, I ran myself ragged during the week before Christmas, because that day I began clearing my throat endlessly, and that evening I felt the first of several fevers that caused me to scramble for my "pink robe". Not literally, of course. I don't think I'd look quite as cute as some. ;)
    Thankfully, I have been on vacation since, and certainly it couldn't have come at a better time; however, it's sad when you don't feel up to doing much. *sigh*
    Let's get better soon, okay?
    Happy New Year to you and yours, Jessica.


  6. I hope by now you're feeling better. I don't know about a bathrobe, but whenever I get sick, I throw on the pullover hoodie, flannel pajama pants, and bring on the hot chocolate and tea. Happy New Year!
