You know how when things are really tough, one little thing can mean the world? Jeanne L (bkydbirder) noted that I hadn't been on the forum much, inquired after my well-being and said she had something from my WL.
I had mostly been lurking the last few times I had been on, since ...well...things have been rough. Didn't think anyone noticed my presence or absence! Thanks you Jeanne and all of this forum for being so caring, interesting, funny and fun. Very much.

I loved The Rosetti Letter and The Devlin Diary by Christi Phillips! Anyone have any insight into whether of not there will be more books from her?

Thanks again, Debbie

Deb,

Can't help you w/ your specific question about the Christi Phillips books. But I can say that I hope your burdens ease and your heart and soul find rest.

And, in the words of the wise & well-spoken Irish ...

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

And ...

As you slide down the banisters of life may the splinters never point the wrong way.

pot of gold and rainbow

That's our Jeanne...she is such a sweetheart!  

I'm sorry things have been rough for you Debbie.  I'm sure we have all come here and bitched and moaned to one another at some point in time--you know you can always do the same!  

Amazon's page about Christi Phillips says she's working on her next book, but it doesn't list a title or release date.  Maybe she has a web site...

Yes, she does!  Check out this FAQ:  http://christi-phillips.com/index.php/a-new-faq/

yesI'll second that one! heart

yesyes to that as well! I'm sorry to hear things have been rough, Debbie, but am hoping that things will improve for you soon! And even if they don't, you can always find a listening ear and kind words and supportive comments and bad jokes here. And possibly plenty of references to wine and chocolate, if either of those are your thing. wink Best of luck to you!

Deb:  I am sorry to hear that things have been tough, but people here on the forum are so wonderful and supportive and really want to help however they can.  No one has been on the receiving end of that graciousness more than myself so I think I can speak with authority on the subject!  No matter if it's a just a whine or complaint or a lift up to stand on the shoulders of someone with more strength than you have at the time, please know that we care about you and hope things are better very soon.heart

Yep -- our Jeanne is indeed a sweetheart (though we already knew that).

Deb -- sorry that you've been going through a rough time. Here's hoping that the bumpy road soon turns into a smoothly paved one. (And as mentioned above, wine and chocolate often help!! No, they're not actually used to pave the road but they distract you from the bumps.)
