Checking In :)

I know I've been absent for weeks and the truth is, I've taken a much needed and total sabbatical from all things online and even the phone. I didn't even read my email for something like four weeks. If you've written me, I'm not ignoring you, but I'm working my way through more than a thousand personal messages. :)

I've got tons of new books to recommend and will commence pimping this weekend. LOL

I have missed all my blogging buddies...so much, but I've been dealing with really severe insomnia and sleep deprivation and it's just been really hard. It is getting better, though my sleep schedule is still backwards. Aargh!

I really want to say thank you to EVERYONE who has written me about Moon Awakening (I will answer your email, I promise). It's just been a total blessing. I've gotten more reader mail on this book already than any other. It's also gotten some amazing reviews and sales have been strong, so I'm feeling super blessed.

I've got some VERY special news I'll be announcing on March 1...but plenty of other "fun" things to tell you all about before then. :)

Know that I've been thinking of you all and I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things.

Much love and hugs,
Lucy

Lucy,
Great to have you back! I have "Moon Awakening" in my TBR pile. You know that is a huge compliment to you since I don not read paranormals.

Can't wait to find out the "news.!

YAY! LUCY! We were so worried. I'm sorry you're having trouble with insomnia, I don't sleep well at night, so I understand. I hope things get better soon!!

HUGS hon! I'm glad to see you back online - I've missed you and was quite worried.

Yah, I know, I always worry!!!

Lucy Monroe said...

You all are so darn nice to me. I can't tell you what your concern means to me, though I feel really badly that I made anyone worry. :) I am truly sorry.

Look for a book pimp tomorrow!

Hugs and smooches!
Lucy

Oh Lucy, it's so nice to hear from you. You have been missed!

Glad to hear that Moon Awakening is doing so well. I know I loved it. I also enjoyed The Sicilian's marriage arrangement.

Welcome back!

Hi Lucy!!!!!!!!!

I've missed you so much and I was soooooooooo worried. So glad you're back. I've always been a bad sleeper until the last couple of years - so I do understand. I know we've talked about it and I still think the magnetic underlay and lavender has been really helpful to me.

Love and hugs from Down Under...

Oh Lucy, as you can see, you've truly been missed! I'm glad you took some time off - sorry to hear about the insomnia. I'm just glad it wasn't anything of a more tragic nature.

Major hugs to you, and it's soooo wonderful to have you "back". Take care.

Hope everything is going well now.

Lucy,
So glad you are back! Was a bit concerned, but glad you got a much needed break. I once had the opposite situation where I was sleeping anytime, anywhere (including standing up while working with patients!). I cut out everything, but work and absolutely necessary stuff at home for a couple of months. Did wonders. Sometimes we just need a break. Look forward to hearing about what's new. Don't you have a new book with Brava/Kensington soon?;)Loved your latest 2 Presents titles!

Judy F said...

hey Lucy girl... glad to see you back. Sure have missed you. I have your latest book on top of the pile to read. I know it will be good, they all are...

Hope you are doing better. I have been having some trouble myself in the old sleeping dept. I feel like a baby when I say I wanna sleep through the night. Yikes.

Take care.

Get some rest so you can start chatting things up again :)

How funny! I was just about to message you on MySpace to find out if everything was okay. I really missed you.
Glad to see you back. And congrats on "Moon Awakening".
