Happy April!

I hope your spring is off to a good start! Mine is off the charts great! My very first book is coming out soon, and I’m beyond excited. To celebrate, my blog is going to get busy. Thanks to something my Entangled peep Taryn Elliott mentioned about a Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I was inspired to do my own alphabet themed blog posts to take me to the release of my novella.

Rather than go from A – Z (kudos to all you doing so!), I’m going to do things this way:


That’s 12 posts until my novella releases from Entangled. I’ve got some fun things planned and hope you’ll check back frequently! Also, because I so appreciate each and every one of you that stops by, there will be some giveaways. AND, for every comment you make during this Blog Bonanza, you will be entered to win a Worth the Risk swag pack. (This is no ordinary pack, and I’ll be giving very few of them away because they’ll be filled with all kinds of awesomeness. I love giving gifts.)

So without further ado… W stands for Work.

I don’t often talk about my day job, but last week a patient brought something into the office that I just had to share. Working with a plastic surgeon is very rewarding. Yes, we do many elective cosmetic surgeries, but we also do surgeries that help women and men feel good about themselves again. Today, I wanted to mention reconstructive breast surgery. This type of surgery doesn’t just restore how a woman looks, it restores her self esteem, her confidence, her hope. Many women have been through radiation and/or chemo and being a part of their lives is something that humbles me every day. I’m in awe of the amazing women I’ve met.

Here’s last week’s thank-you…

It’s a cake! Isn’t it awesome? I especially liked the nip slip ~ very funny! It was delicious too! So, tell me, what’s one of the best thank-you’s you’ve ever received?

O stands for… stop by on Monday, the 9th, to find out! I’ve got a special guest!

  1. Hmm, one of the best thank yous…and my mind’s drawing a blank. I’ve had people write some pretty warm, heartfelt letters but I can’t think of anything anywhere near the magnitude of a breast-cake! lol. Congrats on your release :)

  2. What an amazing idea! Can’t wait to see how you fulfill your theme! The cake is AMAZING, too! So cute and eye-catching, and I noticed the part peeking out, too. Ha ha!

    I think the best thank-yous I’ve received have been letters and notes from former students. A few have been so sweet that they made me cry. I think of them often.

      Hi Caryn! I hope to have lots of fun here in the coming weeks. :) Student notes have got to be incredibly special. I’m thinking at least one or two little guys probably had a crush on you, too. I remember I had a crush on my third grade teacher, Mr. Becker.

    I love the cake! How creative!
    I think the best thank-yous I’ve ever gotten were handwritten ones I’ve received in the mail when I wasn’t expecting them.
    Congrats on the upcoming release.

    Hi Cheryl! I love handwritten notes, too. In this day and age with email and texting, it seems they are fewer and far between. Thanks for the congrats and thanks so much for commenting!
