I've noticed recently that my blog view numbers are steadily going up. Of course, this is fantastic, and I really appreciate all those who have decided to waste a few minutes of their time checking The CPG out.
But I'm sure everyone has noticed that I've gotten rather bad at posting regularly here. There's a fairly decent reason for that, which it feels only fair to share. I've recently developed a pretty bad case of carpal tunnel syndrome--the bete noir of all writers--and thus am having to limit my typing/writing time. Alas that most of my efforts have been focused on working on the final book in the Flora trilogy--(currently called) Flora's Fury and thus blogging has taken a bit hit.
For all who continue to check in, I will try to keep posting but my posts will be intermitent until this horrible tingly condition clears up. Thanks to everyone who is checking in/hanging in/patiently.

of course this is not at all disinterested -- I am desperately waiting for book 3, which I know will be a while under the best of circumstances -- but if you ever want to talk to somebody about dictating, just let me know. I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking to be an almost entirely hands-free computer user because of fairly severe RSI, and it's a lifesaver.
Yay, a third Flora adventure! I love your books. :-) Hope your carpal tunnels gets better soon.
My daughter and I just finished FLORA'S DARE. I was shocked at how things went back and forth. We both loved it, of course.
I actually had carpal tunnel release surgery in 1993 and it totally worked. They do new stuff, now. Please find an awesome practioner and get back to work! Getting an accurate diagnosis is 90% of the battle, so you're being treated for the correct RSI.
PS: I often found that soaking my hands in alternate tubs of really really hot water and cold water with ice cubes would help with the tingles and pain. Try for 10-20 minutes if you can stand it. Having a corporate job with a bathroom with 2 sinks and unlimited ice helps. All you have to do is flip.
Reading Floa´s dare again and can´t wait for the third!!
