It’s Friday, so I’m assuming everyone is ready for the weekend. What better day to have a launch party than the day before many people will have a couple of days off — days to read books! Two good friends and I recently decided to package some of our romantic suspense novels into one collection and offer it to readers at a special price.

First of all, let me just give the Bandit Buddies a huge shout out, a big warm hug and a thank you. In our last post, we hit the 100,000 comment mark! So thank you to all of you for all the fun, informative confabs we’ve had on this blog. We love chatting with you every day. Today I thought I’d talk about a subject close to home for me at the moment. As a mother, it’s always “fun” when the winter lurgy descends on the family as it did on mine last week. I have to drag myself around
