About Dee, Elaine and a Poll 5


First off, do you remember how Wednesday’s guest blogger, Dee Tenorio said she was sick? She was on Twitter last night — her doctor has diagnosed her as having Swine Flu, and worse, her children have it too. So let’s send her family good thoughts/prayers/wishes that they all get better quickly.

I think Elaine’s cursing me after yesterday’s post, LOL. From her posts here and emails she’s sent me privately, she ended up buying more books than she’d planned to, thanks to the great sales over on The Book Depository. (Now I’m wishing I’d set up an Affiliate account, LOL.) Of course, she got me by emailing me that Patricia Briggs’ books are 50% off too. I own all of Patricia’s books but most are in ebook format and I’d desperately love them all in paperback too, so I had to step away for a while myself. Sooo tempting.

I’d written the post on Wednesday but set it to auto-post yesterday, so I was chuckling when I signed onto Twitter yesterday and saw the Smart Bitches tweeting about how they liked The Book Depository. Talk about a great segue into promoting my blog. I replied to them, and included the name they’d tweeted to originally. Turned out they were tweeting to Kierson Smith of TBD. He read my reply and in turn read yesterday’s blog post and replied on Twitter with this comment. Isn’t it cool that my little blog got the attention of someone who has the power to change a company policy? (Whether it happens or not, I’m just thrilled that they take the time (and energy) to pay attention to their Twitter mentions.) Thumbs up to The Book Depository, and Kierson, for that great marketing savvy.

Last Friday I posted about having to change my heroine’s name (OMG where has the week gone?) I still haven’t made a decision, but I have narrowed it down from some of your suggestions and some others that have been made via various emails from friends. I’ve put a poll up on the side so you can vote for your favorite. I’ve included the full name and possible nickname for the heroes to call her. And if you don’t like any of those, feel free to leave a comment here with more suggestions.

    The S names are all too Done, IMHO. Hmm, sorry I've been out of the name brainstorming.

    Really sorry to hear about Dee having the swine flu. Hope she's better soon.

    Marley – crud, you're right, I'd forgotten my comment about already having a lot of S names. I may have to change the poll. *sobs*

    Ack! How did I miss this post? Sending all my good thoughts to Dee and her kids. All 3 kids? Wowza.

  • Bella

    Dee! I'm so sorry! I hope by the time I am sending this horribly belated post (sorry) that you and the kiddos are feeling better! It's bad enough to be sick yourself, but sick with three sick kids — gads! Sending lots of vibes filled with vitamins, fluids, blankets and *rest* your way!

    Hugs,
    ~bella
