Friday Funnies: Post Migraine Edition!

Hello My Happy People,

As I am sure you can guess from the title of today's blog, I am just now coming off of a three day migraine. I really hate when those hit. As you may know, one of the neurological conditions I have is hydrocephalus. This causes higher than normal pressure in my head. When a low pressure weather front comes through like we just had here in Düsseldorf, it is actually very painful for me. The lower the barometric pressure drops, the more painful it is.

We still have storms in our area and the pressure is still lower than normal, but it has let up enough that I am able to function today. Yesterday was 100% a no go! My husband says he can always gauge how much pain I am in by how much of my eyes he can see when I am talking to him. If I actually close my eyes a bit while we are talking, he just sends me to bed.

So today I am playing catch up on the work I was not able to keep up with the last three days, like this blog. I have got more great author interview coming up in August starting off with comic book author Chris Denmead. The following week we have the incredible writer, creator, and executive producer, Reenita Malhotra Hora. Then we have another comic book author Francesca Maria. I have been actively seeking comic book authors since I started this podcast (because I am a HUGE comic book fan) and now I actually have two coming up. I am also just pinching myself that I get to chat with Reenita M. Hora. When you hear her interview, you will understand why!

Things are coming along great for the new magazine, Book Banter Magazine. I am also planning to put out a holiday buying guide for Christmas, featuring work from our guest authors.

But for now I have laundry to finish, a book to edit (Part 7 - Into the West: Family Ties) and two to read so let's get to the jokes!

Have a great weekend people!


Don't forget to get your free EBOOk and Audiobook this weekend. Feel free to share the links with all your friends!
