#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


To paraphrase Mark Twain…

Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.  :)

I was sick all last week, but a quiet weekend pretty much restored me.  (I did miss “West Side Story”, but Wendy and Jeremy came over and Jeremy whipped up a batch of tacos, so that cheered me up.)  Yesterday, all ready to blog, I tried to log on and found out I had no internet service!  Arrrggggh! None this morning, either.  Thank heaven, Chris came over and got us back up and running–service has been sketchy, so let’s hope it lasts.

Now that I’m feeling better, I’m writing again, and I’m back on my Food Lovers routine, too. 

The renovations go on–and on.  (I’m told I’ll have my bathtub back by the end of the week.  Please, God.)  It’s not as if I’m suffering, for Pete’s sake–I merely have to cross the hall and use the guest bath, but, hey, I’m a creature of habit and I don’t like all this disruption.  We’re getting a lot of sunshine, though, so that makes up for a lot.  :)

I’d best get back to work, but I wanted to check in with my blog-buddies.

Thanks for hanging in there.

    Dear Linda,

    Let’s hope that soon your bathtub will drain and you won’t be drained. I just finished Reading “Here and There.” It’s different from your usual stories but once I got into it was great. I’ve heard of long distance relationships, but that was a new one. I love all of yout books that I’ve read.
    I was a little skeptical about Raeanne Thayne. You leave big shoes to fill in writing, but this lady, pulled it off. She is an awesome writer as well. I tjoroughly

    I was a little skeptical about Raeanne Thayne. You leave big shoes to fill in writing, but this lady, pulled it off. She is an awesome writer as well. I thoroughly enjoyed both stories. I look forward to reading more books from both of you. Sincerely, Bonnie Pruett :-D

      Bonnie, I haven’t read that book but I have read My Outlaw by LLM and it’s ONE of my MANY favorites. I really recommend that one as i do all of them, but this one you actually FEEL their love for each other while reading it. My heart literally hurt when they were separated!! LLM is an AWESOME writer!

    It’s a bummer to be down, I know!! I had minor knee surgery yesterday & been confined to the bed ever since :( My wonderful son & DIL have been waiting on me hand & foot, though. So have the grandchildren when home from school – NICE :). They sure are spoiling me!!
    Happy you are feeling better & able to write some more – sunshine helps restore you for sure! Thanks for getting back to us blog buddies :). I know I look for your uplifting messages every day :)
    Blessings from this blog buddy!

    Hi Linda,
    I am an avid reader of you’re books! I was wondering, is there anyway I can get a full list of all the books you have ever written? I want to check off all that I have read. This way I can look for some old ones I haven’t read yet. This list would help me greatly!

    Thanks,
    Sue Nordhausen@hotmail.com

      Hi, Sue. In this Website, at the top there’s a “window” called Books. That should give you the complete list, as far as I know. Unless there are some that for some reason weren’t included. But it should be a good place to start your checking.
      Cheers!

    Linda, I am sooooo glad you’re feeling better, and pray that you have a productive rest of the week, whether you write, read, or craft, or…just do NOTHING. That part really wouldn’t hurt you any…doing nothing while feeling good.

    I finished reading the 2 Mojo books, thanks to Sam, and I now know why everyone wants more of them. The way it ended is just asking for “What happens next?

    Take care and don’t over-do to try and catch up. Your FFF Blogger Fans will surely understand that you’re only one person and not expect one book right after another.

    FFF? Family, Friends, and Fans.

    Linda, so glad you are feeling better. I am reading Banner O’Brien and i have to say with the Easter Holidays I have something to do every day after work and i’m not getting to read as fast as i would like. However, I am enjoying the book and look forward to reading the rest of the series. I’m looking forward to the next Big Sky book, but until then i will continue the Corbin Series and re-read my many other FAVORITES! :lol: Until Next Time…..

      Crystal,
      I just have to say that “My Outlaw” is one of my all time favourites as well :) You are so right when you explained how “you could feel their love for each other while reading it.” Such a great read :)

    Glad to hear you are feeling better. Being sick is a bummer :( .
    Get plenty of rest and have some chicken soup. That always makes me feel better. Re reading some of the Creed books. I still enjoy them. Can’t wait till the next new book comes out. :lol:

    So glad you are back among the healthy. The bathtub will be great when you get it.

    I just finished “Part of the Bargain” last night and I could have spit nails at Aaron! I have got to stop getting so involved with the story! :-|

    Again, so glad you are on the mend. Prayers help! :-D

    Glad you are back and feeling so much better. Worried yesterday when we didn’t hear from you! Glad it was just internet problems and not something with your health.

    Am so glad that you are feeling better and just think, when the reno’s are done how wonderful everything will look and how much fun you’ll have using everything or how much pleasure you’ll get just looking at all the new stuff. How much fun that will be. Take care and God bless.
