Water, water everywhere

Oh, sure, and now Blogger lets me post two lines I wrote in exasperation, but this morning it wouldn't let me post the entry I tried to publish SIX BLOODY TIMES. Well, here it is from early this morning...

The girls enjoyed their first day of school. After I picked them up at the bus stop, I took the three-year-old upstairs to tuck him in for his nap. As I leaned across his bed, I noticed it was soaking wet. I turned the light on and discovered there was water dripping from a hole in the ceiling-- a hole that hadn't been there that morning, I might add. At first I assumed there was a leak as a result of all the storms, but when I went up to the attic I discovered the air conditioning unit up there had malfunctioned, and there was a huge puddle in the attic. We spent the evening cleaning up the mess, and this morning the AC guy will be coming to (hopefully) fix the problem. It'll probably cut down on my writing time, but it's one of those things that really can't wait.

On a brighter note, I discovered yesterday that ISN'T IT ROMANTIC? is currently number four on the romance list at Fictionwise. I made the top five in romance ebooks! I can't believe it!


  1. That's awesome about Isn't it Romantic? making #4!!!! Congratulations!

  2. Excellent news Ellen :-). Oh and blogger was acting stupid all day Tuesday. I got so flustered that I e-mailed them about it and they e-mailed me back explaining nicely that they were having server issues and now have them fixed. Anyway congrats on having a bestseller on Fictionwise ;-)
