So … This Is Awkward. I Need Help. (Please)

Hi friends! … So, a few things. I’ve been slightly more close mouthed and cagey about it this time. (I know, I know, you’re going “what? You? Quiet about anything?!”) … So there is that. But uh … I’m not even sure when this will be going live, or where I’ll be … (please Jesus God in Heaven let me be home by this time, not in the hospital or a rehab facility) … but I probably won’t be lucid. Anyway – I’m having major surgery. Major.

The last time I had to have this done, I was in the hospital almost nine days. I also almost literally died. … And then I “just” wanted to die. So yeah.

And … now we get to the even more awkward part. (God can it get even more awkward? … Sadly, yes.)

I need help. Monetary, mostly, to be honest. I’m going to be out of work for more than three months, and without pay. I guess the positive is I’ll still have my sad little job to go back to once I’m a bit more on my feet … but having no income while at the same time racking up major medical expenses is unfortunately putting me in a really difficult situation.

And … then there’s the other also awkward part. You might remember last time (and unfortunately I’m actually still recovering from it…) … there was also a GFM for me. That was done by Ashley March/Elise Rome. She wanted to help me out and suggested staring a campaign for me, and asking if I’d be ok with it. I was touched, and thanked her. Well … things didn’t go quite as expected and she kept most of the funds for over a year. She has started sending some more of the money as of this year, which I really appreciate.

I’m not actually trying to shame her – I really simply want to explain what happened last time – why I’m asking for “yet more money” and such. Although to be honest all of that was gone/already spent on medical things before it would’ve even ever gotten to me. If that makes sense. Everything is a muddle.

The point is, if you could find it in your hearts and wallets to donate to me … I can’t tell you how much it’d mean to me, or how much I need it. I’m embarrassed, mortified, sick with … shame and need, but there you have it. My needs are greater than my pride.

If you can’t afford to give, which I absolutely understand, I’d ask that you please share the campaign to reach greater numbers. 

Thank you all so much for your kindness and support. 

All my love.

A *Gasp* Change to GA&AG?

So for our new friends here, GA&AG is the Guest Author & A Giveaway.

It happens the first Tuesday of each month. And only then. As I’ve said – originally I never imagined having so many authors willing (or wanting!) to guest here. And most give things away as well. (Aren’t they all so lovely?)

I do only offer the quirky interviews for the GA&AG … but what should I do to make it more special? To stand out more? I mean, it should be a big deal, right? Considering it’s only once a month, and more, I’m scheduled halfway through 2014. (The third week of June 2014 is the first open spot, actually.)

It’s also one of the few things that goes on the blog calendar. (Yeah, did you know there’s a calendar?)

Thoughts? Ideas? What would you want to see?

Oh and quick sidenote – my newest post is live at Heroes & Heartbreakers, and I’m talking about athlete heroes! Come play with me!

Lastly – a friend is asking – do you read Gena Showalter? Which of her book(s) or series would you recommend to a newbie? Incidentally – if you ever have a question like that, do let me know! I’d love to see if we could get some answers/help.

Thanks so much. <3

Ta!
