I’m back and updates

image

 

Happy Friday to you all and I know most of you might have noticed I have been off the radar for the past week. Due to a virus that had me spending a miserable old four days in the hospital and two days of bed rest, I am just about able to sit up in bed without a spitting headache…

Anyhow I on the mend and am now able to shower some love my blog again…

 

Updates

Firstly – Thank you to all the people who have emailed me expressing concern for my absence – I will get back to you all, As I have not looked at my inbox since last week Saturday – Let me just say it’s not pretty…. So give me a few days and I will get back to you all.

Horror Con – didn’t work out so well for me. As you all know I was so excited to go and get my book signed by Vincent Chong – my all time favourite cover artist… Alas it was not meant to be and to add insult to injury, while on my way home feeling so poorly on Saturday I left my copy of ALTERED VISION on the train… I could just cry when I realised it…  But I live to fight another day… I’ll just go stalked his blog as I normally do…

I got loads of books delivered while I was away (will give an update on Sunday), but I want to give a MASSIVE shout out to anyone who sent me over 600 books to my house and the only correspondence in the box was a shipping label and a note to say “For the girls with best wishes” .

Admittedly it’s quite daunting that a huge delivery like this could be delivered without no way of tracking it  - But I am not going to look a gift horse in the mouth…

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FROM THE GIRLS AND MYSELF..

I’ll be by over the weekend to catch up on a ton of stuff that I have been missing – so look out for my grubby little mitts in your blogs over the next few days…

 

On a final note

Happy Easter to you all and as much as I am feeling so low – I am blessed to be with family and friends. I  hope you all have loved ones around you to share in this quiet time…

Ack! I'm glad you're feeling better!! And I am so sad to hear that HorrorCon not only didn't go well, but that you lost your beloved book!

Wow, that was amazingly sweet, that box of 600 books!

Jude Mason on 2 April 2010 at 00:19 said...

HOSPITAL!

What the hell!

E.H., I so hope you're all right. That must have been some virus. Don't get crazy, for heaven sakes. Take care of yourself and start getting back into the swing of things slowly. I'd hate to have you relapse.

Gentle hugs

@Chris..

Hey hon... I am feeling a whole lot better than a few days ago...

I dont even want to think about the book... the good thing is that it wasn't signed - if it was, I dont even want to think about it...

I am so chuffed about those books and a little leery as well (scary to think what comes delivered) - but I am taking the high road and thinking positive... I agree what a gift...

I can't thank them enough....

E.H>

@Jude..

I am one of those people who eventually gets everything (be it a bug or a virus) - I either got this in Brighton or on the train...

But it was not nice at all...

And I will be taking it easy - I have loads of reading material to keep me in bed for another few days...

Thanks hon...

P.S. - Congrats on the release of Satllion's Pride...

Chris on 2 April 2010 at 00:30 said...

EH: Will you be able to replace your book??

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 00:34 said...

@Chris..

Yeah - I'll just buy another copy... He does offers signed copy for sale as well...

But as Horror Con was being held here for the first ever time - I wanted to meet him as well...

I might have to just take up the signed copy option from his website...

E.H>

Chris on 2 April 2010 at 00:36 said...

Do it! And then lock it up in a vault. ;)

Heidi V on 2 April 2010 at 00:38 said...

Good to hear your back! Have a wonderful Easter...

Smokinhotbooks on 2 April 2010 at 00:48 said...

I was worried! I thought my google reader was broken, I actually went onto to your site today in case I missed one of your posts!

So glad you are feeling better.

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 00:55 said...

@Chris

I think my closet will work just fine - My son has been trying to get in there for years...

So why mess with a good thing... or knowing my kids - I could place it on the bedside table and they never notice it... they never see the obvious..

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 00:56 said...

@Heidi..

**waves***

Hey hon - Thank you and Happy Easter to you as well...

*hugs*

I'm so sorry that you've had such a horrible time lately. I hope everything gets back to normal quickly. I hate it when bad things happen to nice people. You just need to rest as much as possible and take care of yourself.

Huh, my veri word is heave. Seems appropriate given the situation.

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 00:59 said...

@SHB

Thank hon - As my mom says, our bodies know when it needs to shut down...

It was just my time - I hated it though to be truthful...

But I am on the mend now... Thank god...

E.H>

Lily on 2 April 2010 at 01:21 said...

I'm so sorry to hear you've been so ill. I hope you get back to normal quickly.

It sucks that HorrorCon didn't work out for you and then to lose your book. :(

Hopefully you can replace it.

Ava March on 2 April 2010 at 01:22 said...

It's so good to hear that you are feeling better, but it sounds like you still need a lot of rest. So rest up, relax, and continue to take care of yourself. ((hugs))

So sorry that Horror Con didn't work out. It's so disappointing when you look forward to something and then it doesn't at all live up to expectations. Total bummer. :(

Shawn Lane on 2 April 2010 at 01:42 said...

Ah, EH, I wondered what happened and feared you were sick. Glad you are on the mend at least but that bites about your book.

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 01:57 said...

@Eyre..

Thanks hon - I am taking it very slowly.. With a glass of juice alwyays at hand...

Enjoy the weekend my dear..

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 01:59 said...

@Lily...

On the mend hon and I am thinking positive about the book -...

After waiting for this event for so long - only to get sick... just my luck..

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 02:01 said...

@Ava...

I am resting hon - I haven't strayed too far from my pillow in a few days...

Horror Con was good - but when you are ill, everything just goes flat...

Hopefully I'll get another chance again..

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 2 April 2010 at 02:03 said...

@Shawn..

Hey girl - hope things are good with you...

It seems the illness bug passed my way as well... but getting better, but by bit...

Hope the BFF is well and you are getting some writing done...

Yikes!

I hope you feel better soon. Just be sure to get plenty of rest. *nod nod* Of course, you already know that so I'll just be shutting the heck up now. :P

TCBlue said...

And now we see why Tis should not be allowed to use the internet unsupervised. She ends up doing things like double-posting-double-posting.

*rolls eyes at self*

Sorry!

Lea on 2 April 2010 at 03:23 said...

EH!

So sorry you have been so sick! OMG - Hospital?? Gosh, you take care and feel better soon. I thought you were on holiday.

Well, know that I am thinking of you and those 600 books, enjoy!

Yikes, once again, take care.

Donna [F.D. Ramblings] on 2 April 2010 at 03:47 said...

Hospital stay? That sounds serious. I'm glad your on the mend! {{{hugs}}}

600 BOOKS!! Super Wow! The Book Guardian Angel is looking over you and the girls. Hope ya'll enjoy them. It's going to take awhile to get through them all, eh?

Happy Easter! And get some rest. :)

Leontine on 2 April 2010 at 06:06 said...

EH, hon I hope you are getting on the mend here (((hugs))) what a nasty bug that must've been to end up in a hospital. The moment something like that happens I give in but after a day my mantra is: I want to go home, I want to go home...

So take care of yourself and rest up over the Easter weekend! And 600books 0-0 OMG that must've been exhilirating as a bit shocking, and from an anonymous donor? Wel...enjoy the gift of the good samaritan :D

Kris on 2 April 2010 at 07:31 said...

Hun, I haven;t been about much and just wanted to say that I'm so sorry that you haven't been well, but am thrilled to hear that you are on the mend. Take care of yourself and have a great Easter.

Jenre on 2 April 2010 at 08:40 said...

Yikes! That sounds terrible. I had noticed that you were a bit quiet. Glad to hear that you are on the mend.

Simon on 2 April 2010 at 12:39 said...

You lost one book, and gained six hundred. Such is life ... :)

I'm so glad you're safe and (almost) well - I was really getting worried. Eat lots of honey! - it's a fantastic recovery food!

Patti on 2 April 2010 at 17:58 said...

So sorry to hear you've been ill - glad you're on the mend. It sucks that you had to miss the signing AND left the book on the train. The mystery box of books is awesome though!

ErotRomReader (Janna) on 3 April 2010 at 00:55 said...

I missed you yes, but thought it had something to do with the construction work at your house gone wrong maybe. Never expected the hospital!! I'm glad you're feeling better now!
Have a great Friday and Happy Easter, hun!

Mary G on 3 April 2010 at 02:34 said...

I'm sorry you've been so ill. Feel better soon.

JAD on 3 April 2010 at 03:46 said...

I am sorry to hear you've had such a bad time lately, EH, but glad that you're home and doing well! :) Have a great weekend, and wow. Enjoy the books! :)

Erotic Horizon on 5 April 2010 at 10:03 said...

@Lea..

Thanks hon .. I agree what a gift.. The girls are so pleased...

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 5 April 2010 at 10:05 said...

@Donna..

Yup - Hospital, sometimes bed rest and paracetamol is just not enough...

I am seeing my reading schedule already planned out for me and the girls for a while - but we do appreciate the haul so much..

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 5 April 2010 at 10:08 said...

@Leontne
I want to go home, I want to go home...

I know the feeling my dear - even now on bed rest - I am climbing the walls...

I am so surprise by the gift of books - but a good samaritan is the best way to describe that person..

It's hard to get book donations for the ladies most time...

These will go A LONG way...

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 5 April 2010 at 10:11 said...

@Kris..

Thanks hon - you know the worst bit of being is ill - it's the enforced rest thing..

I hate that...

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 5 April 2010 at 10:13 said...

@Jen..

Thanks Jen.. I was so surprised by the amount of people who had this virus ...

I am on the mend though - and drinking loads of juice..
