La Vida Crazy-Busy, Getting Off Of Hiatus/Sabbatical

Happy Thursday All,

Wow! It feels like an eternity since I updated my blog. I have been super-busy with family obligations (in fact, still am...motherhood is a demanding job, as many of you know). But I am getting back into writing and working on getting back into everything else. It's happening veeerrrryyyyy sllllloooowwwwllly...but it's HAPPENING! Yay. :-)

I'm having issues with my regular browser, so I'm using an interim one until I can sit down with my awesome IT guy, Jeff (if you're interested in consulting with him, email me, and I'll check his availability. He's been a big help to me).

To keep up with me, watch Twitter and Facebook mostly. I update Facebook often, and try to get to Twitter at least once a day. (The interim browser I'm using is slow, so I'll just provide a link to my website, which I think has links to my Twitter and Facebook pages).

So what's going on in my world aside from motherhood? I'm working on the first book in what I hope will be a new series. I've been working on this novel for some time, now, and well...it seems to be trying to come together. I'll be using my regular beta reader--she's going to give me an initial input on what I've got so far (always nice to get her input at the beginning to see if there's a plot hole before I write myself into a corner).

The NWHRWA Lone Star Conference is just around the corner! (Saturday, October 3, 2015). And guess what, darling readers? I'm going! Yes, I am. This year, Margie Lawson is the keynote speaker. There are 2-3 editors coming out to hear pitches as well as a literary agent. So it's exciting. I can't wait to see my writing pals again. I haven't made it to a NWHRWA meeting since the Christmas party last year. Real life has been that demanding. Fortunately writers and other professionals I work with have been very understanding, which has made being on hiatus easier.

I miss regularly writing and updating this blog. I even miss editing. Absence--even being away for a very GOOD reason--does make the heart grow fonder, at least as far as I'm concerned.

So, please tell me, darling readers...what are you up to these days and what are you reading?

Be sure to check Amazon and Barnes & Noble for my novels. They're available on Kindle and in paperback--all 4 published ones. :-)

Have A Thrillingly Terrific Day!

I'm glad you're back.
Wish I could go to the conference. I'm jealous.
