A Note of Thanks
Last week, I told y’all that my husband’s knee had been cut into, in an attempt to fix some knee problems that he’s had since he was a small child. I won’t lie; it’s been a rough week. He’s still in a lot of pain, and it might end up interfering with our Christmas plans. Not the best way to spend our Christmas, that’s for sure.
But anyway, I was sitting here, writing away in Flames of Love, when Reagan tells me that he wants me to check my email. Hmmm…okay. Weird, but all right.
What I found is below. I didn’t proofread it or change one word of it. I did, however, cry when I read it.
Here’s an adorable picture of Jasmine the Healing Cat snuggling up to Handsome Hubby that I took this morning, to accompany the note:
Dear Faithful and Enthusiastic Erin Wright Reader,
I am breaking into this newsletter for just a moment to introduce myself and to say thank you.
I am Reagan or as some of you might know “Mr. Erin”. Whilst I don’t normally interject myself into her newsletter Erin has been telling you about my recent knee surgery. I am sure it is mostly because she needs someone to vent to. Thank you for being her shoulder.
She has also read to me some of the wonderfully thoughtful responses many of you have sent wishing me well and advising Erin on how to keep her sanity while playing Florence Nightingale. My personal favorite was the reader email that said “either he needs to take the heavy-duty medication or you do to get through this,” (or something to that effect). Truly sage advice that rings of real-life experience.
Each and every one of you that has taken the time to email have been so gracious and caring about wishing me well and supporting Erin that I had to break in here and say thank you.
Recently our mailbox started filling up with Christmas cards, hand written and some even hand-crafted. I can tell you that it means so much to her. But, I wanted to share a husband-secret. The kind of support y’all show through emails, cards, leaving ARC reviews and buying her books means a lot to me too. Here is why; I think my wife is insanely talented. She is funny, caring and has a good grasp on English grammar, all of which she pours into her books. I try to tell her how wonderful she is but sometimes that message need reenforcing from outside. She will give me that look that plainly says “You have to say that, you’re married to me,” but when you guys back me up it makes the affirmation real.
Thank you for helping me out.
Again thank you for the well-wishes, great advice and support
Did I mention that I cried when I read his letter? I just teared up a little again just now, rereading it, just as I’ve been tearing up as I’ve read through the Christmas letters that I’ve received from y’all. It really does mean so much to me.
Okay, enough weepy emotions for now. Last week, I told y’all about a giveaway I was running on Facebook, where you could win a set of hand-forged metal icicles and two copies of the Blizzard of Love, just by sharing a post and also telling me what you’d do with the second copy of Blizzard. I’m happy to report that Nancy L won and has already given me her mailing address. Enjoy the package, Nancy!

In this captivating love story set against the stark beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, Hannah Gray returns to her hometown after the death of her parents. Once wild and impulsive, she shut her heart off to love and adventure after her parents died. When she meets Luke Winters, their immediate attraction is overwhelming.
Burned once before, Luke has committed himself to nothing but casual dalliances with women. Rugged and sexy, he finds no shortage of women happy to oblige. When Hannah comes along, he questions what he might be missing. Both fight the depth of their feelings–love is not part of the plan.
Hannah’s sense of identity is shaken when she unearths a surprising truth about her family. Meanwhile, Luke’s interfering family and complications from his past challenge Hannah and Luke to face their true feelings for each other.
Can two people who don’t believe love is worth the risk find the courage to face their fears and open their hearts?
