I was actually a bit shocked the other day to realize I hadn’t posted ANYTHING here since April, and for that, I apologize. The last quarter of every school year always bogs me down, and this year was no exception. Between state testing, final projects, packing up my classroom to move to a new classroom (thankfully I had several students who were willing to help in exchange for donuts), and a few minor health things that have kept me down for the count for several weeks… well, it should come as no surprise why I went incommunicado. Again.
We’re into my second week of summer break. and I’m still all:
April and May took a lot out of me, and I almost feel a little hung over with lingering exhaustion. There has been a lot of napping and binge-watching of Netflix. I’m trying to carve out some time to actually read some of the books that have been stacking up, so to speak, on my Kindle.
And writing, of course. I’ve been doing some serious edits to my historical romance and putting together submission packages for the same. A handful of short-term freelance gigs have come my way. I’m days away from hitting the “publish” button on a short story for Kindle – which is more to learn Amazon’s self-publishing platform than anything else, though I’m fond of the story itself. And I’m trying to get back into the first book of a Sweet Somethings spin-off trilogy that, sadly, has languished in First Draft Limbo since February.
Long story short, there’s a lot going on. Hopefully, I’ll soon be back to regular updates and, of course, news of new books.
