A View from the Recliner

It is difficult to be limited in what I can physically do.  However, I'm trying to be productive with my time.  Research and marketing have been top of my list while I'm laid up.

To this end, I spent a chunk of yesterday researching new age bookstores for Moon Affirmations and emailing a number of them to introduce my book.  Whether it will produce any sales only time will tell.  Next for me is to see what a good place to market to for the romance novel and the poetry book.

Great news for Moments in Nature - it is now available on Barnes and Noble.  Also Smashwords has connected with two more channels of distribution.  One of which is to get into libraries which are great users of ebooks.

Aside from book stuff, I've been crocheting.  I'm done with baby gifts and am now working on sponges.  I've had three requests for sponges so I'm working with my left over crochet cotton to make sponges for these three people.  After the sponges though, I'll probably go back to working on the afghan I've got started.  I have three more afghans to make after this before I start looking at other bigger projects to take on.

While crocheting, I watch tv.  I finished MI5 and have moved on to other things.  I watched a movie about World War II called The Couple.  It was interesting.  Then I watched a PBS series called Heat of the Sun which takes place in the 30s in Kenya.  That was pretty good.  Finally last night I started season 1 of Grimm.  I watched two episodes and it was okay.  It seems a bit darker than I normally like but I'll watch at least a couple more episodes before I give up on it.

My days seem really short because I've been sleeping in.  This is great for my sleep level but tomorrow when I am back at work and can't sleep in this could be bad.  Hopefully it won't be a problem.  I'll be glad to go back to work and catch up.  It will be nice to have a different view than the one from my recliner.

It was a good weekend.  Friday I left work to go to the doctor with Vicki.  We were forceful about her needing a different antibiotic.  She ...
