It’s been a rough several months, what with beginning treatment for pernicious anemia; the slow, complicated recovery from two surgeries for cancer; and two invasive diagnostic procedures (I had to postpone two others, because I wasn’t up to handling any more).
I have a request. If Irish Firebrands has been on your TBR list, I’d greatly appreciate it if you’d pick up a paperback. Getting it direct from CreateSpace will cut out the greedy middleman Major Online Retailer, which likes to double-dip on its profits (because it already owns CS, and then it takes another huge cut when it sells a copy, on top of the share that CS takes when it gets a print order from said Retailer). Even a little bit bigger royalty will help a lot, because I’m disabled, living on a below-poverty-level pension, and some of the drugs I need are not covered by Medicare.
I’ll be starting the first round of chemotherapy on Tuesday, and that will last for 8 weeks. After a 3 to 4 week “rest” to let my blood recover, the second round will begin, lasting 12 weeks. If I feel up to it, I’ll be lurking, and I may leave brief comments at your blogs, but I don’t know how the drugs will affect my ability to write my own blog, so I’ve pre-scheduled some posts here, and book reviews at my Passions of Patriots blog. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
Thank you for your encouragement and support.
