*bleaders = blog + readers
I've got some news and a confession.
Let's start with the confession (I mean, let's face it, you were probably more interested in THAT anyway...). I've been a horrid - HORRID! - commenter as of late. There have been so many events in my life (some I can't say yet, others I'll share shortly) that have prevented me from spending much, if any, time on Blogger. *extends hand for vicious slapping* I want to thank you for taking the time to read and comment regardless!
Ben started Dental School (200 pages of notes on Day 1???...er, um, I mean, YAY!), and I've been very busy doing final edits on my ms (thanks, Laura!) while writing book two. Also, on Friday I leave for Europe!! Off to Sweden, Denmark, and Italy for two weeks with my uncles and sis. First time I've traveled internationally without Ben. Kinda freaks me out, but not enough to stay home. :) If I don't blog while there, I'll definitely share highlights/photos when I get back.
And...Gaia's Secret has a cover! (Thanks, Ben!) This has truly been one of THE coolest pieces of the literary puzzle - "seeing" an actual image for my story. I wouldn't be here without you all, and I can't wait to share it once I come back from across the big pond.
In the meantime, Happy Labor Day, and I'll leave you with this...
Some students wrote to Roald Dahl, asking him questions about his short story collection, "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More." Here's his response:
See, writing isn't a hobby. It's a lifestyle. :)
