Writing on Pain Meds – Recovering From Surgery

Posted · Add Comment

Well, I’m back so that means I survived my gastric bypass surgery last week. Now, almost a week later, I’m only taking over-the-counter pain meds and using a heating pad for pain. I want to give a sincere thank you to all of you who responded to last week’s email with prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery. It worked so far and it meant so much to me.

I tried doing some work when I first got home but the pain meds they had me on at first just snowed me and I kept falling asleep at the keyboard. My wife finally threatened to hide the computer so I settled in to just watching TV and getting rested. Those of you out there who are nurses or know nurses, you know we aren’t the best patients sometimes. I’m being good now, though and it’s paying off. I’m going to start on the short story project for the upcoming anthology tomorrow.

Then I’m back in the saddle to write the final book in the Broken Throne series. Once the fifth book is written, we’ll edit all three and I should have a preorder date for you soon after (around mid-May). I can’t wait to share this new series with you.

I’ve also been journaling ideas for the 7th book in the Extreme Medical Services series. It’s always fun revisiting the adventures of Dean Flynn and his friends!

If you’ve finished the main Extreme Medical Services series, Don’t forget the side story about Eldara Sister Ashley Moore’s past The Nightingale’s Angel out now wherever you buy books and ebooks.

In the mean time…

Do you know someone who’s had surgery recently? Take a moment and drop them a line, text, Facebook message, or even a phone call. I can tell you from experience it all means a lot to the person in recovery!

Talk with you all next week!

A Gargoyle and Sorceress Tale (4 Book Series) by Lisa Blackwood

When Lillian finds herself facing off against vampires and other mythological impossibilities, help comes from an unlikely source—the stone gargoyle who has been sleeping in her garden for the last twelve years.

After the battle, Lillian learns the humans she thought were her family are actually a powerful coven of witches at war with the demonic Riven. Lillian is something more than human, a Sorceress and Avatar to the gods. Gregory has been her protector for many lifetimes, but when she was still a child troubles in their homeland forced him to flee with her to the human world. However, Gregory fears something from her childhood followed them to this world—he suspects Lillian is host to an infant demon, one capable of evil greater than even the Riven.

Extra complications arise when she realizes she’s concealing a forbidden love for her guardian. While she might be able to defeat the Riven with Gregory’s help, she does not know if her fragile new love can survive the evil growing in her own soul.
