Headache Lorelei

Your pain lesson for the day

I decided to prove I was over my sinus infection yesterday by going out and doing four hours of yard work. Even better, I have a brand new hedge trimmer that's tiny and lightweight, so I could pretend I was swinging around a heavy tool but not get overworked.
First, I'm not over the sinus infection.

Second, no matter how lightweight your hedge trimmer is, swinging it around for four hours after not doing that work all year WILL lead to screaming muscle and back pain.

This has been your lesson for the day.

Six Authors, Two Appearances, One Day

I usually post press releases for upcoming author events, so everyone can see how dull my press releases are. This one was sent out last week, so I hope you’ve seen it—it’s very different from our previous book signings in two ways:

First, it’s our first gathering of multiple authors (unless you county Emily and me as two authors, which you should). Six—count ‘em, six—authors will be at one of the two gatherings Saturday.
Which brings us to the second way: Being gluttons for punishment, we’re doing two separate author appearances in one day. All the details are below, and I hope you can make at least one of them. Maybe both, it would be like having … author groupies.

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Six local authors will have a busy day, organizing for two book signings in two cities Saturday, October 10th. The authors will have plenty of opportunities for caffeine to keep them going, though: Both appearances are at coffee shops.

The first, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., will be at Joanna’s Dealicious Treats, a book store, coffee shop, and restaurant at 201 S. Main Street in Kendallville. After just an hour’s pause the second will be at the Cupbearer Café in Auburn, at 138 East 7th Street, from 3-7 p.m.

All the authors will have copies of their books for sale, and will be happy to sign them and discuss their writing with visitors. Authors include:
