Bait and Switch
Well, this is a first. Brandilyn’s not here to greet you this fine Monday morning. It’s me, Gayle DeSalles, her marketing assistant.
Brandilyn is traveling today from California to her Coeur d’Alene home. But y’all know her well enough to know that this in itself wouldn’t stop her from posting. After all, she’s written to you from hotels and Starbucks before. She wouldn’t abandon you for any old reason. Nope, it’s not just that she’s on the road. Rather, she came down with a nasty bout of the stomach flu this weekend and is still not up to par.
So, she asked that I would post for her. I know she’d appreciate your prayers. She has a full week ahead of her. Being in Cd’A, though—a slice of heaven this side of earth—will definitely aid in her healing, no doubt.
Meanwhile, she’s declared this week a free for all. Well, she didn’t exactly say that; those are my words. She does ask that you would post questions for her about the writing life, perhaps some minute detail she may have left out of her NES. Something that will be easy for her to answer to conserve her enegry.
Thanks a lot. You’ll be hearing from her soon.
