Falling on My Face -- Update

Thank you, everyone, who sent me their best wishes for a speedy recovery. I am much better now. The swelling has gone down, and I almost resemble my former self instead of FrankANNEstein. (lol I couldn't resist.)  At least I'm not green anymore. I believe my tooth is slowly healing. It was a little loose, but seems to have begun to dig its way back in. So thanks for all your prayers.

I also may report, I finally finished THE EARL'S ENGAGEMENT on New Year's Eve. Whew. Never thought I'd get it done, especially after I had to rewrite the ending. Gah, don't you just hate that. Moving right along and then realize it's not going to work. But it's finished and off to my critters.

Oh, and by the way, here's the cover. Isn't she beautiful? I think she's one of the prettiest heroine's I've ever written about. I just love the dog.

I'm hoping to get it out in a few weeks. I finally bit the bullet and uploaded my other novels to B&N for the NOOK. So for those of you that are interested, you can find me on there now as well as Amazon.

Now with that out of the way, I'm hoping to return to the blogs with
a little more enthusiasm. At least until I start my next book.

And lest I forget, Happy New Year! I hope 2013 blesses all of us!

So glad you're recovering from your fall, FrankANNEstein (good one!).

Your new cover IS beautiful. Congrats on getting the book finished! :)

Congratulations on finishing! Sorry you hurt yourself.

Anne Gallagher said...

Linda -- Thanks. I knew you'd like that ...'stein' joke.

Alex -- Thanks. Better now.

J.L. Campbell said...

Happy New Year to you too. I went and read about your fall. Glad to hear that you're on the road to recovery. Here's wishing you get the Earl's Engagement out on schedule.

Stephen Tremp said...

Glad you are on the rebound! Happy New Years to you and yours! And let me know if you want some help when The Earl's Engagement is released.

Sarah Ahiers said...

Glad you're on the mend!

And yes! I LURVE the cover! (i thought that even before i saw the dog!)

J.B. Chicoine said...

I'm not sure if it's better to fall on your face metaphorically or literally...anyway...congratulations on Earl's Engagement!

Nicki Elson said...

Oh yay! I've been waiting for the Nook versions. :) And yes, this cover is gorgeous - all of yours are.

Congratulations on finishing the Earl and on the tooth holding strong. :)

Johanna Garth said...

Congratulations on both the beautiful cover and on recovering!

Anne Gallagher said...

Joy -- Thanks so much. Yeah, been having a little trouble eating, but other than that, I'm doing much better.

Stephen -- Thanks so much. I'll let you know.

Sarah -- She's just sooo pretty!

Bridget -- I've done both. I don't want to do it literally ever again.

Nicki -- Thanks so much. I thought you might be pleased that I've finally managed to make the switch to Nook.

Johanna -- Thanks so much. Happy New Year.

Glad you're feeling better. It's no fun to be out with health issues. And the cover IS very nice:)

So sorry, I did not know that you met with an accident. Happy to hear that you are getting well. I have not read any of your book. But feel like reading it. I dont know whether your books are available in India. If it is available where can I get it from. If not where can I get it from.

Get well soon. My prayers are with you and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Congrats on the Earl's Engagement! It will be exciting to see it up with your other beautiful books that look to be doing well! You have accomplished so much, and it makes me happy. :) I hope your face heals quickly!

Beautiful cover, and I'm glad to hear you're improving. Hugs!

Another one of your gorgeous covers! Porter Anderson was making nasty cracks today on Jane Friedman's blog about how all romances have shirtless men on the covers. He should see your elegant, clothed ladies.

I've been buried in a bunch of projects and haven't been by in a while. Your poor face! Falls are scary as we age. I had one a couple of months ago that really reminded me I'm not so young any more. At a certain point, your body doesn't bounce any more.

Best of luck with the Earl's Engagement and with moving to B&N and other platforms. I think getting away from Amazon independence is good for us all. We never know when the algorithm will change and stop our income dead.
