Seems kinda funny to blog about Crohn's when you're a romance author. But I did promise. So, here goes another promise. As soon as I finish the Gemini Series, I am starting another series called Redemption. The second book in the series will feature a paranormal police detective who has Crohn's disease. 10% of all proceeds from the Redemption series will go to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation.
That's a huge commitment. I have an author friend who donates 10% of all her proceeds to cancer. That's where I got the idea. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. At least it did me. And to write about a detective with Crohn's, now that should be funny! Just imagine all the situations she'll get into.
Stop for rant: Why can't we have a sexier name for our disease?
Not that cancer is sexy. It's not and neither is Crohn's. They are both battles that require tough women and men. Children, too. Even babies. *sob*
While the Crohn's continues to haunt me, right now I'm trying to balance my blood sugar. One flour tortilla can send it over 200. Not good. Bread is my worst enemy. Flour actually. Unfortunately, the diet for Crohn's is low residue and the diet for Diabetes is high reside.
I'm damned before I begin.
But I'm not complaining. My heart rate is holding steady at 93 beats a minute. It'll blip up to 107 once in a while, but that is one hell of a sight better than 150. Yesterday, my blood pressure was 87/65. Talk about sleepy. Lethargic. But I did do an hour on my stationary bike later on in the afternoon.
I haven't mentioned the blood sugar drops. Normal is around 80, but mine decided to test the lows at 52. No wonder I felt funny.
Scared at the reading, I yelled at my husband, "I need to eat!"
Clueless, he screamed back, "What do you want me to do about it?"
The Last Keeper's Daughter is a murder mystery, paranormal romance, all mixed into one great book. Where else can you get a two-fer? The characters are believable, the world building is fascinating, and the writing is wonderful. Perfect for a sick day, and the vampire is so damn well you get what I mean.
On that note, I shall head back to my PDF and finish the book.
