Knock, Knock … It’s Me!




Hi all, it’s Mason. I hope y’all remember me. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve been here at Thoughts in Progress.

I didn’t intend on being away so long but one day turned into two, two turned into four and then it just snowballed. With the holidays and a full-time job now outside the home, life has been a bit crazy (whose life isn’t, right?). Then I decided since we were having such fun weather here in the South (extremely low temperatures, ice, snow, you know) that it was the perfect time to get this nice cough and cold that’s going around. You know the one that doesn’t want to leave you once you get even if you take all the medicine the doctor prescribes for you. It has finally decided to visit someone else and I’m feeling better (not coughing with every other breath).

My plan is to get back to blogging on a regular basis. That means sharing new books and authors with you here and visiting with you on your blogs. If I don’t make it by to see you today, I’ll be by soon I promise.

Meanwhile, I need a bit of help. I had a note on my calendar concerning DEADLY SWEET by Lola Dodge for today, but I can’t find anything in my emails about it. The note didn’t say if it was a book tour, feature or what. If you have contacted me about this book, please contact me again.

One other bit of information concerns a book tour I’m handling through MC Book Tours. Author Hank Quense has a new book, QUEEN MOXIE, that will be on tour today through Feb. 20. If you’d like to participate in the tour, just drop me an email or visit the tour page.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Has this crazy cough/cold visited with you?

  1. It is lovely to see you back.
    Sadly on the other side of the world and in high (and hot) summer we are dealing with coughs and colds. Which seems so unfair.

    1. Elephant's Child, I think colds are so much worse in the heat. Hopefully this terrible cough and cold will run its course soon. Take care of yourself.

    1. Alex, it does seem everyone is sick. Just when you're feeling better and you think you've turned the corner, the weather decides to take a turn for the worse and the sickness comes back. Hope all is well with you and your family.

  6. Welcome back! Time does get away from us sometimes, doesn't it? We each had a very mild cold after Christmas but fortunately that's been it.

  7. Good to see you back! I have not experienced the dreaded cough and cold this season, as yet. However, I have been mostly secluded and assisting a family member who has a chronic condition. Glad that you kicked the cough, it lingers like the Cheshire Cat's smile.

    1. Lil, I think being mostly secluded is the best thing right now. It's not good being out and about in with people coughing. You're absolutely right about the cough lingering like the Cheshire Cat's smile.

  9. Almost everyone I know has a sore throat or cough. I'm trying not to breath. LOL. My Moxie post is FINALLY up. What a nightmare. I had to revamp the entire thing after some kind of glitch attacked my draft. Not what I had planned. Glad you're on the way back to blogging, Pam. Take care.
