Interview with Karen Lange and a "Memorable" Birthday Weekend

Today’s tour stop is with Karen Lange. She had some interesting questions for me and is posting a review of How to Publish and Promote Your Book Now!

For those helping me during the A to Z Challenge - Laura Marcella, Sia McKye, Golden Eagle, Clarissa Draper, Jo Wake, Tyrean Martinson, and Gwen Gardner - you now have a badge, thanks to Retro-Zombie.

This past weekend I was mostly absent from the Internet, but only part of it was intentional. My husband treated me to a night out of town, including shopping, dinner, and a comedy club Friday night for my birthday, which was  Saturday. We woke up Saturday morning to snow and decided to head home. Good thing we did - shortly after getting home, we headed to the emergency room. My husband was having chest pains and shortness of breath. He went through many heart tests and had to spend the night. (It ended up having NOTHING to do with his heart and he’s fine!) He felt so bad about it happening on my birthday, but if nothing else, he made it memorable. And as long as he’s healthy and home, I don’t care.

Does anyone want a slice of white cake with white frosting now?

  27. *snaps fingers* How did you know I only came over for cake? Actually, truth be told, it was really only for the frosting. That's the purpose of cake, right? To hold up the frosting? *grins*
    Ugh! I'm so glad hubs is okay. I once cut my hand open on a birthday. What is it about birthdays that sometimes we just ought not climb out of bed that day?
    Happy belated birthday.

  37. I find it a surprise that C.M. published her book before she had a blog or was connected to the online writing community in any way. I couldn't be a writer without the invaluable support I've found on the net. Good luck to her. :-)
