I am in Love with My Wife!!

Hello and welcome back to all my reader friends.  Yes it has been quite a while.  

If you remember, I did the unthinkable.  The end of last August I had my lower teeth pulled and fitted for dentures.  I am still trying to learn to eat and speak with them.  I also went through a total knee replacement and had to fight  the pain and learn to walk again.  I am happy to say that I am off the pain MEDs now and am able to climb stairs with both legs too.  It has been exactly one month since the surgery and I am doing well.  Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for me during this time. It feels good to be back.

I want to tell you that I have the most wonderful and beautiful wife in the whole world.  Through all of this she has been very helpful and caring and loving.  She has done so much for me and assisted me with my exercise.  She has held down a full time job while also cooking me special foods and keeping the house clean.  She has waited on me hand and foot, or should I say that she has waited on me knee and teeth?  I am the richest man in the world only because I have the best woman as my wife.  I love you baby, so much.

Today my head feels clearer and my thoughts aren’t drug influenced.  During my rehab I also had a very good physical therapist that came to see me three times a week.  Suzanne was very good and I appreciate her very much.

So now is the time that I must get back to work on my stories and books.  I am excited to get started again.  

Now, if you will excuse me.  I must put in my teeth and eat some breakfast.  Everybody have a great day today!

Rescue of the Heart

Well, stick a fork in me,  I’m done!  Whew!  That was tough, but I finally made it.

First I want to thank you all for not buying my book On Barnacle Way.  I don’t blame you for not wanting it.

I must have been on one of my MS episodes when I approved that for publication.  So, thank you for not taking a chance on it.  Believe it or not I really do appreciate it.

What happened was that one day earlier this spring I decided to look into why it wasn’t selling. After all, It was a great story.  But as I was reading the “finished” product, I began to notice one or two things that were terribly wrong with it.  It was awful!  It was downright embarrassing.  I knew that I had messed up big time and was ashamed to have that out there with my name attached to it.

So, the reason I haven’t been around the blog for a few months is I was re-writing the book.  I have gone over the manuscript with a fine fine tooth comb and taken out all that was bad.  I’ve added things to make the story even better and corrected all the grammatical and formatting errors.  I even created a new cover that is much nicer and more appealing than the other one.  The old story is gone and no longer available.  Thank God.

There is just one final step to complete before it is ready for publishing.  It still has to pass the publisher’s final review and that should happen in a matter of days.  As soon as they give me the go-ahead, it will be available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com and anyone else I can convince to carry it.  It won’t be available just yet on bookstore shelves just yet because I am still considered to be an unknown.  But that will change and then I hope to be right up there on the shelves besides your favorite authors.

So, to whet your appetite, I’ve decided to give you a little sneak peek.  This is a story of how true love never dies, no matter what gets in the way.  If you’ll notice, I’ve added a new page to the blog called Samples.  If you click on it you will be taken to a page with a sample of the story that you can read here.  It will be the same on both blog sites.

So, it’s time to announce the new book title.  Rescue of the Heart by Joel Wilson.  This is so much better written and I am proud to put my name on it.  I know you will love it.

I would also like to use this space to announce my new web site:

Joel Wilson – Author  located @ http://authorscribe.com/joelwilson/
