It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here (five months and one week, to be exact). Perhaps you have been (or are now) wondering where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing.
Well, I’ve been writing up a storm, that’s what I’ve been doing. I also bought a house, moved into that house, spent a couple weeks in Italy, and, very recently, spent some time out in the western part of these United States.
But more pertinent to this blog – the writing. I finished up edits on the first book of my EngiNerds series, which is slated to hit shelves about one year from this very month. It will be featured, excitingly, on the Fall 2017 line of Simon & Schuster’s Children’s Division’s newest imprint, which launches this upcoming Spring.
In addition to the editing, I’ve been polishing up a handful of manuscripts that I’m now working with my agent to place, and hammering away at a bundle of other, newer projects.
And all the while, the barrenness of my blog has been nagging at the back of my brain . . .
Which is why I’ve decided to post today to let you know that I’ve recommitted myself to blog more often, and to do so with an emphasis on my reading. If you follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Goodreads, you’ve no doubt seen that, while I may have taken a break from blogging, I certainly haven’t stopped reading (if anything, the former has gotten shoved aside in favor of the latter). But starting today, instead of merely giving the books I finish three or four or five stars (I tend to be a pretty generous star-giver, almost always rounding up), I aim to write a bit about them here.
Look for the first post later today. And if you remained subscribed to this blog despite my nearly six-month absence, thanks for sticking with me.
