Update, Great Things to Come and New Blog!

Hey Everyone!

First, I want to apologize for neglecting this blog as much as I have. I have been through a lot this past year and I think all of my personal struggles just overwhelmed me and I needed to take a step back and re-evaluate everything.

Because I feel the need to explain myself… Over the past year I pushed myself to complete my Graduate program a semester early and compeltely overloaded myself with schoolwork, my father passed away suddenly and then, I was laid off at my job due to cutbacks. (And those are just the top 3 heavy hitters!)  However, I am finally getting things together and while I am still trying to figure out the whole job situation, everything else seems to be leveling out! (Fingers-Crossed!)

One of the things that I decided to do is throw myself full force into my blog! I love this blog and have missed it terribly. It also doesn’t hurt that the majority of the jobs that I have looked into applying to have all inquired about whether or not you run a blog and ask any & all details pertaining to that.

This leads me into my big announcement. I have built and launched my own personal blog: Now, just because I have my own separate blog does not mean that I will be abandoning this one! I will just be doing some fun and exclusive things on my other blog. For Example: Extra Giveaways, Fan Art Fridays, Pop Culture Posts (Comics, Movies, Television – Reviews, Announcement Updates and so on…) along with other goodies! I would greatly appreciate it if you would follow me over on that blog as well!!!

Also, as just an FYI… As a kind of mental excercise of getting in the habit of posting on my blog, I have gone back and built up some posts from the past year! So, there is LOTS of content already up through back-dated posts!

Then last, but most definitely not least…

I recently attended two book events at Inkwood Books for Kristen Simmons and P.C. & Kristen Cast… Which means GIVEAWAYS will be coming!!! Also, I was fortunate to be able to go to BEA!!! My mother and I talked about going to New York to visit family up there and this became even more important to us to do ever since my father passed away. So, we decided to try and make the most of our trip and timed it with when BEA would be happening!!! Which means even more GIVEAWAYS!!! So stay tuned for some exciting new things and thank you so much for sticking with this blog for as long as you have! I greatly appreciate every last one of you!!!



A Quick Update

Because it has truly been forever. We’re still alive! Just in varying states of order.  To speak for myself personally, I’ve been making a move from one city to another because of a new job(s) [!!!], and so simply haven’t been reading, much less blogging.  A recent comment added on a previous blog post poked me awake to the fact that I have vague amounts of more time now that I could do this again, if not maybe as regularly as originally promised (once a week), but possibly something more feasible (once every couple weeks).  But I’m loathe to make promises.
