We Have a Title - Woot!

I’d jump for joy if I could! There is now a title for Ghost Dusters 4 - YAY!

It will be called DEAD SUITE. 
No release date yet but when I know, you’ll know.

I’ve also finished Book 5 of the Ghost Dusters - double YAY!!

I’m happily plugging away at the edits these days but I’m still experiencing excruciating shoulder pain (boo hiss). After weeks of physio, cold laser therapy, acupuncture and a cortisone shot I can safely say … I’m exactly the same, if not worse. Sigh. Surgery pending but don’t know when.

So in muted celebration here are some random things I’ve learned over the last few weeks:

* We use our shoulders for practically every movement and you don’t know that until scratching an itch makes you want to punch someone in the face.

* It’s possible to name a character Eddy in one book then totally forget him and name another random character Eddy in the next.

* I miss lemon meringue pie.

* Having a vacation to look forward to is one of my most favorite things.

* Having a book release to look forward to is even better.

* Wanting a new laptop is great but doing all the research to find a good one sucks all the joy out of it.

* That also applies to printers.

* When you’re hurting and miserable your dog will become an unruly, attention-seeking pain in the ass.

* If you clean out the vanity in your bathroom and discover a dozen nearly empty tubes of Aveeno hand cream, you may have a hand cream obsession.

* It is possible to love your physiotherapist and also hate her with a white hot fire that makes you want to skin her alive.

* Drinking coffee does not work well with most medications.

* I care more about my coffee habit than my stomach.

* I can read the same page ten times before I find one error but it only takes my editor one time to find ten errors.

So what are random things you’ve discovered lately?
