Blurbs and Babies

Another fantastic blurb has come down the pipe, and from yet another of my favorite authors.

"Action-packed, edgy, and thrilling, THREE DAYS TO DEAD is a fabulous debut! Kelly Meding's world and characters will grab you from the first page. You won't want to miss this one." -- Jeaniene Frost, New York Times bestselling author of the Night Huntress series

And on the home front, my sister's due date has come and gone with nary a sign of labor. We were shopping in Hartstrings on Saturday (adorable baby/kid's clothes), and since Sister is obviously pregnant, the lady at the counter asks, "So when are you due?"

In stereo, Sister and I reply, "Today."

I with I had a camera for the look on that woman's face. I suppose baby Jade knows it's just too dang cold right now to come out, so she's staying in where it's warm. *g*

Well good luck to your sister! I know sort of how it feels. I'm going in for a scheduled C on Friday so people always gawk when they ask when I'm due, and I'm like "Oh, Friday." :P Happy baby day!

Congratulations to you and your family on Baby Jade’s upcoming arrival, Kelly.

And an extra big “congrats” on the newest blurb! That is awesome!

Christa - Congrats and best wishes for Friday!

I know Sis would rather have had the baby out by now, but everyone's telling her it's okay to wait. But if she's born on Saturday, she'll share my day (just in a different month)!

Thanks, all, too for the blurb congrats. Yay, yay, yay! :-D

Awesome blurbs! Is it really going to be fall before I can get my hands on this book?! *pulls hair out*

Congrats to your sister...hopefully, it won't be too much longer, though I know from experience that the wait is...yeah, well, practically intolerable. But, you get a baby for your trouble! *fingers crossed for a quick, smooth (and soon!)baby day*

Thanks, Jen! She's had such a smooth pregnancy so far, I have my fingers crossed that delivery will be a cinch.

I can't wait to be a doting aunt. :)
