I was going to be brave and poke a few holes in my nail to relieve some of the pressure but everyone on Facebook talked me into going to the doctor instead. And guess what she did?
She poked a few holes into my nail with a needle to relieve the pressure. LOL. At least now I know it was the right thing to do.
If you do this yourself, remember to wipe alcohol on the nail and use a sterilized needle. You don't have to work the needle too far. As soon as you reach the nail bed, the blood will come gushing out and you'll feel relief almost at once.
There's your first aid tip for 2013. Hope you never have to use it.
Indies 4 Hire: The event is over but the experience will stay with me. It was amazing. I never expected that many people to attend and the interaction was terrific. My thanks again to Gwen Gardner, my guiding star and partner on this adventure.
I got to meet a bunch of new friends and I hope we introduced you to some new friends too.

I couldn't believe Shelley Munro's name came up twice in the Rafflecopter. I told her she better buy a lottery ticket.
Congrats to all the winners.
MISTRESS of the STONE is up for BOOK of the YEAR.
Finally, a bit of book news from my corner. In 2012, LASR gave Mistress of the Stone a BEST BOOK rating. A high honor in itself. Well, now it's in the running for BEST BOOK of 2012 and this time readers get to choose the ultimate winner.
Voting runs from February 1 - February 14
You can vote for Mistress of the Stone here. Mistress of the Stone is somewhere in the middle.
If it wins I get some free advertising so I'm keeping my fingers crossed--but not my bad finger. :ouchie:
I love this book. Yeah, I got all historical on you, but it's accurate history even if it does have werewolves and ghouls.
This is the second time one of my books was nominated for Book of the Year. True Believers also won two other major book bloggers' Book of the Year. I'd like to do it again!
