A friend of mine, Marianne Donley, sent me this picture! See BLOOD MAGIC on the end cap?
Can you read the sign? It says IF YOU LIKE THE TWILIGHT SAGA…and there’s BLOOD MAGIC!
The location of this Barnes and Nobles store is:
2300 Chemical Road
Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462
Thank you Marianne for sending this to me!
I had a really good weekend, and this picture just topped it off. What about you all? How was your weekend?

Too cool, Jen!
Let’s see. . . weekend. . . oh, yeah. . .
Froze ass off in 1,000 MPH wind at frickin’ 8 AM on Saturday for my kid’s soccer game. Who the hell schedules soccer that early on an effin’ Saturday???
Then we had a make up game in the afternoon. Wasn’t freezing, but it was still blowing like a mother. It was a miracle my asthma didn’t kick in.
Sunday: wore heels (4 inch) to church. Walked around in aforementioned heels while looking for first communion dress for kiddo (stupid, I know. Hubby said ‘only one stop’, which turned into 4 stops and lunch). Managed to hurt sciatic nerve while wearing freaking heels that put me down for the rest of the day. Back still hurts and will have to baby it rest of week. Aleve is my friend.
Oh, and the kid has started cussin’. Don’t have a clue where she gets that DAMN habit!?

I’M SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! See, I’m telling ya ‘Best Selling Author Jennifer Lyon’ on your next book!!!! Can you send B&N a thank you gift???
Margaret, sorry about your back. My chiropractor is very handy with sciatic nerve help. Do you chiopractic?

That’s waaaay cool!!!!
I’m so thrilled Marianne saw that!! That’s big time, Jen.

Awesome blossom! I need to go hunting again. I did see your book at Walmart tucked in with Gena Showalter and Rachel Vincent. I’ll have to get back there with my camera and I need to hit B&N and Borders to see where BLOOD MAGIC is shelved!
Weekend? There was a weekend? Oh…yeah..Saturday brunch. I got distracted. LOL

Margaret, poor baby! I’m so sorry! High heels are torture enough, but hurting your sciatic nerve is mega misery! Hope you feel better soon!
LOL on your kid’s cussing…no idea where she got that. Probably it was the trolls

Erika, thanks! I was so surprised when I saw the pic! I’d LOVE to see bestseller on my books someday…but I think that means I should be writing
Can the flying monkeys take a run and check in on Margaret? See if she needs anything?
April 6th, 2009 at 10:53 am · Link
Michele, thanks! Marianne rocks! But we already knew that
April 6th, 2009 at 10:55 am · Link
Silver, I saw your Sat brunch, but I was just cruising by on my way to doing some work, so I didn’t leave a comment (bad witch!). Might have left some drool though, sorry about that!
You saw the book in Wal Mart???? I haven’t seen it in any of the Wal Marts I’ve been in, so I’m jazzed to hear it! And now, I’m back to my nose to the grindstone mode. This next book is due Sept 1.
April 6th, 2009 at 11:49 am · Link
Flying monkeys are en route.
September 1??? You better quit messing around lady! Are you close to being ready to turn it in?
April 6th, 2009 at 12:09 pm · Link
Thanks y’all. I really appreciate your comments and concern. I HATE that I can’t sit for any period of time, thus less computer time.
I’ve never been to a chiropracter before, Erika, but I’m seriously considering it! The thing that scares me is how do I tell the scammers from the legit docs? Of course, if you know of a doc in Tulsa I’d be ahead of the game.
Oh, flying monkeys have arrived. Did you know they can use their feet to help massage the knot away? Oh, oh, yeah, right there. . .

Margaret for a certified chiropractor, not a quack, go to http://www.activator.com and search in your area for an activator doc. This is how I found my doc.
I knew the monkeys were useful, glad to hear they’re helping you out. Feel free to use them as long as you need to, just send them home when you’re done.
April 6th, 2009 at 12:36 pm · Link
I guess they’d be licensed, not certified…
April 6th, 2009 at 2:27 pm · Link
Erika, when you say close…do you mean like having it written? Uh…no…not even close! As soon as I get these copy edits on Soul Magic done, I’m going to be working non-stop on book three!
Thanks for sending the monkeys to Margaret!
April 6th, 2009 at 2:28 pm · Link
Margaret, I went down the stairs the hard way a while back, so I know what you mean. But you have to rest the nerve, and the more your rest it now, the sooner you’ll be back!
Glad the monkey feet help
April 6th, 2009 at 2:31 pm · Link
Erika, good advice! I’ve never been to a chiropractor either. I’m super cautious though because of my Rheumatoid.
April 6th, 2009 at 3:07 pm · Link
Ah, the monkeys helped, Erika. They should be winging their way back home.
But I should warn you about a small incident. . .
the bigger one got jealous of the time the smaller one was spending working my knot out. Well, there was jumping up and down (my brand new leather couch), and screaming (all of us), hair pulling (mine), but when the monkey poo started flying (not mine), I said enough was enough!
I wanted to give them a shot of hootch to calm them down, but I was afraid they’d fly into the windows of a nearby office building (like a bird–SPLAT!) so I refrained.
Uh, you might want to tranq them for the night unless they burn up enough energy flying home to finally settle down.
Thanks for the loan. Maybe we’ll just stick to only one at a time the next time.
April 6th, 2009 at 3:16 pm · Link
Margaret – OMG! I am so sorry. Please send me the bill for the cleaning of the poo and any damamge to your couch and your hair. I thank you for the warning and will from now on only send one at a time.

Margaret, give me tonight to do some checking. The DH is an attorney down here in OKC. He’s in a doctor’s depo so I can’t call him to see if he knows of someone but I’ll do some checking. We’ll get you fixed up!
Isn’t Erika just the best to share those monkeys? But yeah. Unless you’ve got them flying or drinking appletinis, best to keep them seperated!
Jen – I’m going hunting tomorrow. Expect photos!
April 6th, 2009 at 5:11 pm · Link
Thanks, Silver! I appreciate your help.
Don’t worry about the damage, Erika. It was minimal. Besides, the massage was worth it. Next time, I’ll remember to have appletinis ready before they arrive.
April 6th, 2009 at 5:31 pm · Link
Margaret, is it wrong that I’m laughing hysterically at the monkey’s antics?
And this just goes to show how we all NEED APPLETINIS!!!
I’m also thinking that you should have at least one appletini before walking in four inch high heels–it’ll relax the nerves and muscles
April 6th, 2009 at 5:33 pm · Link
Erika, the monkeys didn’t mean any harm…and who can blame them for fighting over helping Margaret?
April 6th, 2009 at 5:33 pm · Link
Oh wow your book really looks good there. I also think it belongs there because I loved it and can’t wait until the next in the series. WTG Blood Magic!
We had two beautiful days over the weekend it hit in the 70’s yesterday but it is 40 today and cold and rainy!
April 6th, 2009 at 5:34 pm · Link
Silver, thank you! If you find any books and send photos, I’ll put them on the blog!
April 6th, 2009 at 5:35 pm · Link
It’s past time for Appletinis! I’ve got the men shakin’ them up now.
April 6th, 2009 at 5:46 pm · Link
Thank goodness. I know I’m ready. Fill ‘er up please!
April 6th, 2009 at 8:33 pm · Link
You deserve it Jen! The Border’s here in So. Portland, ME has it set up the same way Great book, great author! I can’t wait for the second one to come out!!
April 6th, 2009 at 9:01 pm · Link
Erika, bottoms up!
April 6th, 2009 at 9:03 pm · Link
Sarah, thank you! That’s great to hear about the Borders in So. Portland!
