Why, yes. Yes, I do know I'm a craptastic blogger.

It's been a month since my last post, and longer than that since I said I'd draw a winner in the Bachelor Sheriff blog launch party. Because, well, I am a craptastic blogger.

I do have a reason for my extra slackiness. I was sick for almost two weeks with a rather painful case of cellulitis. The good news is, I didn't have to be hospitalized; I caught it early and treated it quickly with antibiotics. The bad news is, it hit right as my day job exploded into chaos due to a Christmas online catalog that turned into a print catalog as well, and all of which I alone could work on because nobody else at my office really knows how to make the files happen. So even though I could only spend a few hours a day at my office (after being out of the office completely for nearly a week, due to being nauseated and headachy the first week of the illness), I still had to work a full day just to get things done. I brought home all the files to work on here on my home computer; fortunately, a few months ago I had bought the necessary software to work at home if I ever needed to.

So anyway, I've been working wall to wall on the day job project, as well as finishing up the final Cooper Justice book. ::sniffle:: And tomorrow, I have to hit the ground running on my inline continuity book that's due 1/15/11.

All that to say, sorry I've been such a blogging slug, and here are the contest winners for the Bachelor Sheriff book launch: Nancy Ison and Amanda Gardner! Please click on the "home" button at the top of this blog, which will take you to my website. Then click on "contact" to email me with your email addresses so I can send you the eGiftcards.

And thank you, everyone who commented. I may not seem grateful (being as how I avoided the blog for a month and all), but I really am.

Let's see, what else do I have to tell y'all? Well, The Long and the Short of It Reviews gave the first three books in the Cooper Justice series some very nice reviews. I don't know if they're still on the website anymore, but the reviewer was kind enough to post the reviews on Amazon, so you can read them there:

Case File: Canyon Creek, Wyoming:

Chickasaw County Captive:

One Tough Marine:

Whew. Sorry to just regurgitate everything I've been sitting on all at once, but hopefully, I'll be a little bit more frequent with my blog posts now that I'm just about through with the day job project.

Well, at least until it's time to start work on the direct mail catalog that drops in February...

Sorry to hear about your under the weather spell, Paula. Life really bites sometimes.

Take care.

Nothing ever happens unless it happens at one time. At least you were able to work on it at home and isn't it nice to be wanted? Indispensible, really.
