I’m still alive, I swear

COME BACK!

I know that I’ve been super quiet lately and have missed two Awesome Book Cover Fridays in a row, which is just unacceptable. Authors everywhere are crying.

(Not really.)

I’ve felt a little short on time lately, which is not incredibly silly, but I think I’ve needed a little break from creating extra work for myself. I’m self-employed, so that’s all I do, and sometimes the struggle to keep up with bills and expenses and making sure I earn the checks to cover them is … more than exhausting. So I like to veg out and do nothing.

I also just returned from a too-short vacation in California. My sister’s now a Mrs. And boy, do I want to go back. THAT WEATHER.

But I’ve also felt the absence of not writing for me and for you here, on this blog, where anything goes. It makes me sad that I haven’t really posted in so long. First and foremost, I’ve always been a blogger, and I always want to make the time for it.

I hope you can forgive my inconsistent posting of late because I’m looking forward to jumping back in — at my own pace. I’ll do better. Promise. I’m many things, but slacker isn’t my style.

Love you all!

Hey, everyone!

It’s been a busy couple months. First, a big thank you to those who supported Z. on Kickstarter — we reached our funding goal in time! It was a new experience for me, and the first time I served as a community manager.

Then I had a birthday, and, well, got older.

Now I’m spending this week packing and going nuts trying to get everything together so my boyfriend and I can move into our first apartment. There will be an awesome book cover post this Friday, but please hold tight until I get back into my routine. I appreciate your patience, and thanks for reading the blog!

I’m also on the verge on starting a new, part-time copy editing position, so that will begin relatively soon. And an article pitch of mine has been approved to somewhere really cool, so I’ll update you guys on that this fall.

But enough about me! What adventures have you embarked on this summer? What are you reading?
