Jogging With Mark Wahlberg

What am I doing here at the beginning of autumn? I’ll be having surgery. Groan. I’m having a knee replacement. The really cool part is that they’re making it with a 3D Printer! Talk about space-age technology! I’m trying to pretend I’ll have a bionic knee like those six million dollar characters from eons ago. I’ll be able to run at top speed, leap over an oncoming, out of control 18 wheeler, and never break a sweat. Makeup and hair in place goes without saying.

Who am I kidding? If you catch me running anytime in the future, new knee or not, there is a clown chasing me with a meat cleaver dripping with blood. The only way you’re going to get me to jog is if I get some really cute workout clothes and Mark Wahlberg ask me go with him for a run–in the rain–on the Qualla Reservation in Cherokee, North Carolina. So there. Safe!

I’m dreading not being 100% for a couple of weeks, not being able to drive (those pesky pain meds) and to have the hubby take care of things. (Wish me luck on that one.) My pain level in my knee has really increased this summer and it really needed to be done. So along with a pumpkin latte in hand, I’m getting a new knee.

This is all because of an injury from 2006. I’d like to tell you I missed a step on Mt. Everest or crashed my non-existent race car into a wall at Daytona, but sadly no.  I stepped out of my classroom onto a tiny pencil.

And then there is this!

Got a surprise for you! The paperback version of The Knight Before Chaos comes out this week. The ebook will surface November 5. Right now the ebook is .99 on pre-orders. Grab it and have a good laugh. When Die Hard meets Home Alone.

I’ve started a reader fan page on Facebook. Each week I’ll have games, polls, interesting facts about books, places and ideas. I’ll even throw some recipes in once in a while. I hope you’ll hop over and like the page. I’m shooting for 200 readers and already have over 100. When I get there I’ll have a very nice gift for someone!

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2430789897157949/ is how you’ll get there. This is a site for you because you are so loyal. I’m doing away with my newsletter because honestly it just didn’t work for me. I felt like I never got to know my readers. This way will be so much better for all of us. If you are not on Facebook that is okay too. I’ll still be posting on this blog  for longer items and helping you to experience new authors and ideas. So come on! Go like the page and I’ll be doing a drawing on Monday!

  1. Well, I’d like to see that. You jogging along with Mark Wahlberg.
    I’m sure you’re surgery will go great and you’ll be jogging with Mark and The Rock very soon. Prayers, my beautiful friend.

  2. Geez, I was hoping you would have a bionic knee so you could come up here and do all the things that require getting down on the ground.
    Good luck on your surgery. I’ll keep a lookout for Mark Walberg. If I see him, I’ll send him your way. Your fan page is awesome.
