It is something that I've been avoiding for weeks but eventually I knew they'd catch up with me.
In September I had a biopsy of a spot on my nose. I knew most likely it was some form of skin cancer; last year I had a similar kind of spot and had to have what's called a Mohs procedure, where they take off a bit more than the original biopsy and see how deep the skin cancer goes.
Last time it was kind of deep, but I had an excellent plastic surgeon and he was able to fix me up well enough that you probably wouldn't notice if I wore makeup.
I diligently wore my sunscreen all summer but as the doctor said, this damage was done years ago, not now. So after GRL, I will be going in to have this done and wind up with another little scar. I have plenty. I'm used to it.
I'm very thankful. It isn't melanoma; it's very treatable and will require me to be even more diligent about sun protection.
So while this is not pleasant, I will try and focus on the positive and that is my upcoming trip to GRL in San Diego next week. I can't wait to meet all the readers and other authors; I'm counting the days!!
And in case you missed it, I had a cover reveal for my Chanukah novella releasing in early Dec. It is a continuation of Alex and Rafe's story from One Step Further, five years down the line. The cover is by Dar Albert of Wicked Design and I love it. You can find the blurb and add it to your Goodreads shelf here: http://bit.ly/1R1LHnb
