New books!

Murder at Westminster Abbey-1So many lovely new Risky books lately!!!  I am headed to the hospital today for surgery (hopefully just one night there, then I will be home again), and I have my Kindle loaded with new books and my stuffed Hello Kitty in my bag to keep me company.  In the meantime, I think a giveaway would be a good thing…

The second in my Amanda Carmack “Kate Haywood Elizabethan Mysteries” is out in April!  Murder at Westminster Abbey is set around the festivities of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation (which was tremendous fun to research!).  I just got a boxful of ARCs last week, and will give away one of them to a commenter on today’s post!  Just let us know what you’re reading lately, some of your favorite get-well-quick tips, whose coronation you would have liked to attend, anything you like.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASee you all next week!

All best wishes for your surgery! My favourite get well tip is to listen to audiobooks, especially when in hospital as they can drown out the noise or comfort you when you can’t sleep. But they’ll also do you good once you’re back home; it can be difficult for someone who is usually busy to rest as much as they should to give the body time to recuperate. Lying listening to a book with your eyes closed, really concentrating on it, will keep you still and relaxed without the discomfort which can be caused by having to hold a book for hours. And if you think you should be working, listen to a non-fiction book for your period and call it research!

I just started a new mystery series with In a Bleak Midwinter. I am anxiously awaiting the latest in CS Harris’ Sebastien St. Cyr series.

I ended up with 2 recovery periods last year. I wish I had thought about the audiobook suggestion above but I went with novellas since my powers of concentration were gone. Listen closely to what your body is telling you and don’t set yourself back by trying to do too much too soon. I made that mistake the first time and added a month to my recovery.

My thoughts are with you today, Amanda! HJ’s and Amy’s suggestions are good ones. Take care of yourself and let others take care of you.

You have been in my thoughts today, Amanda, and I hope all went well.

Rest! That is the most important component of recovery. And realize any sort of surgery is SURGERY and should be treated with respect. Listen to your body and ALWAYS give yourself the benefit of the doubt before attempting to do more than you should.

Audiobooks are a great idea for recovery. As are marathons of your favorite series or movies. If you doze off during one it isn’t a tragedy because you know it so well. There is a great comfort in the familiar.

Can’t wait to read your newest as I think Queen Elizabeth I’s coronation would be amazing to see. And the intrigue! Oh my!
