Quick Update On Why I’m MIA! (Greetings From The Hospital)

Hello, my glorious friends! I have missed you like crazy.  Seriously.  I haven’t been seeing you on Twitter or Facebook or in the blogosphere, or anywhere, really.  Since I am currently blessed with sketchy Internet service, I’m going to update everybody very quickly!

My darling twins decided that they want to be born NOW.  This is completely unacceptable, since they’re nine weeks early.  We’ve been in firm negotiations for quite some time now, but I’m finally coming out on top.  Bedrest slowed things down, but I’ve been in the hospital for the last couple of days, trying to teach the kids to respect my authoritah. 

 As of now, things look good, but it’s kind of touch and go.  I’m sorry for not being in better contact.  I miss my snarky, creative, loving friends!  But I have some great news coming up soon.  The incredibly awesome Jamal W. Hankins interviewed me and it will go up soon.  I’ll link you then.  Also, I have a SUPER SPECIAL ANTHOLOGY ANNOUNCEMENT that makes me want to cry with glee.  That post will also go up soon.  My goal is to get my current manuscript to my agent before the babies are born, but we’ll see how that goes, yeah?  And for your viewing pleasure, you get to see one of the most wonderful and touching youtube videos that I have ever watched.  The talented, gorgeous, and soul of my soul Harley May lost one of our challenges with all of the grace in the world.  End result?  She made me a youtube video with Jazz Hands. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and I know that you all want to take her home in your pocket.

Annnnnd…I can’t get the video up on here due to Internet restrictions.  Zip off to Harley’s place and fall madly in love.
See you soon, everybody!

  1. Mercedes, I am thinking of you and those babies who want to meet you so very badly. Who could blame them? Enjoy some of that delicious hospital Jello for me. Praying for you and your family. ♥

  2. Mercedes, take care of you and the babies. Everything else will work out okay. You have been missed but when you are back we will all be able to rejoice.

    Be good,


  3. Harley’s karaoke was a thing of beauty. With jazz hands.

    And glad to hear the babies are starting to respect your authoritah, m’dear. It’s never too early to let them know who’s boss. 😉

    Be well, darlin’.

  4. You show those babies who’s boss!

    And don’t think that having children gets you out of the Illiterati meeting this tuesday. Slacker.


  5. Glad you’re all in a safe place, Mercedes (even though being in the hospital blows). My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I’m off to watch that video : )

  6. I’m so glad everything is going well. Get your rest, and when your ready, spill the beans about all this news goodness! 🙂

  7. Sending lots of virtual hugs and love your way…rules, yeah, they don’t know about those just yet. 😉 So much wonderful news on your post today. Congratulations. I look forward to reading your interview and watching Harley’s YouTube video.
