Back and Ready to Rock n' Roll

I am back home, feeling great, healthy and ready to resume blogging and participating in the community I love so much. I have missed you all.

It is difficult to express how much your thoughts and best wishes meant to me while I was recovering from a personal health situation. Many of you have left messages and emailed me and I plan to get back to everyone, although it will take me a while to catch up on all my correspondence.

My sincere apologies to those authors and publishers to whom I promised reviews and or guest spots in the past two months and was unable to follow through. Everything is back on track and new reviews, and planned interviews will start to appear shortly and as originally planned.

I'm excited to be back and look forward to chatting with you all as soon as possible.

  51. And so, you return...probably fitted up with six million dollars (real American dollars) worth of computerized body parts, all designed to aid you in your diabolical plot to dominate the blogosphere with your high-faluting graphics and your organized calendar and your clever videos. Game on!

    Marta back bigger, badder and meaner. According to the Consumer Price Index a 6 million dollar man in 1974 now costs $25,812,096.07 as of 2009. Ha ! Game on indeed!

  65. Welcome back! You've been missed!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Doug! How are you? While you've been away I moved my blog to a new platform that lets me schedule posts in advance, and I was joking with another blogger that I could be hit by a bus and no one would realize I was gone for a week at least. I sincerely hope that nothing that bad happened to you, but I've gotta figure it was pretty serious to keep you away from your blog. I hope you're feeling much better, and I look forward to having one of my favorite sparring partners back. I think I've worn out my welcome elsewhere. : )

    Also, did you get any reading in?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Squeee! We missed you! So very glad you are back!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Love all you guys and gals. Thanks so much for the best wishes and welcome back. I guess I need put on my 'A' game now.

    Rebecca I didn't get too much reading in (Marta's two new books) and a couple of others, but I did listen to a lot of audio books. Went through the entire Stephanie Plum series...

    ReplyDelete
  69. Well I suppose that's one way to knock it off. I took the first Stephanie Plum audiobook on my last road trip with the husband, and let's just say he was NOT a fan. It was kind of comical, because he kept asking me, "Is this the kind of stuff you read?" and I was like, yes honey, now let me listen. I vowed to read book two, because I didn't like how the narrator made Ranger sound, and I understand he becomes a main love interest, so liking him is important.

    ReplyDelete
  70. So good to see you back Doug!! Let's hope the road is smooth for you from here on out. Don't push yourself, we want you to stay healthy. We've missed you!

    Dottie :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yay, you're back!

    The net hasn't been the same without you.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Rebecca I'm good with the voices. Most are over the top especially Lula and Grandma. I really enjoy the standard SNAFU that Stephanie is constantly in. Funny stuff.

    Dottie and Kez - thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  73. So glad you're back, and hopefully feeling better. I've missed you, and I know I'm not the only one!

For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
