Blogging... Or Lack Thereof

I am through apologizing for not blogging. I don't even know if I am missed when I don't. Some day, I will have lots of time to write about all of the TV shows I'm watching and funny things that pop into my mind. I like doing that. But for now, random and sporadic is all you will get. Here are some of the quicky reasons for my blogging absence, as well as some news to report:
  • Officially, wonderfully, holy crappily I will be taking a year of (unpaid!) leave from work next year to be with my beautiful daughter and to work on my books. It is an amazing opportunity to see what life as a full-time mom/full-time author is like. One year. Then I'm back to my great job as a librarian.
  • I am working on my revisions for DON'T STOP NOW, my third novel, as we speak. I have a deadline, so that is a big reason for not blogging.
  • There have been a lot of great reviews for INTO THE WILD NERD YONDER online that I want to link to every time I read them, but, again, there's that whole blogging thing that I am not so good at lately. The latest one is at Jen Robinson's Book Page. Thank you to everyone for such kind reviews! NERD should be out in paperback in less than a year, for those of you who only like to read soft books (?).
  • During my year off, I intend to subject my family to a visit to the new Harry Potter World at Universal Studios. I am afraid they will leave me from sheer embarrassment after I implode from excitement. Need I remind you of my Weasley Family Peeps Diorama?

Did you see the excerpts of the Deathly Hallows from HP weekend on ABC Family a few days ago? It looks really good!

Thanks, Friend! GBTQ- Do you know it's official opening date? They just keep saying "spring!" And Anonymous, I totally missed the excerpts! I used to be all over those ABC Family Potter weekends. With the baby, I always seem to be trying to catch up with TV.
