I’m not dead…

Just on hiatus.

I have neglected to admit my true status for way too long. At first, sometime around BEA, I thought I would be away from this blog for a week or two, at most.

Then, after a blessed computer-free holiday weekend of relaxation and reading, I was certain I would be posting those drafts that were “almost finished” any day.

Then, I received a massive Diana Palmer research project to complete between early June and my long-awaited July 4th vacation. Mix that with last week’s in-house seminar and a mostly all-day luncheon with the lovely ladies (and a few gents) at the Long Island Romance Writers annual shindig, and I was very close to admitting I had hit my limit.

Then, I went out and bought The Passage.

I swore I wasn’t going to start it. I was going to save that behemoth book for my vacation.

Um, that didn’t work out so well.

Now, not only do I have work to do and a vacation to plan, but I have an intensely wonderful book I don’t want to stop reading. I had to deliberately leave it at home today just so I would have my lunch hour to write this post. Justin Cronin‘s book has grabbed me and refused to let go, and if it is within a few feet of me I will pick it up and read as much of it as I can. I’m only 130 pages into the 770-page story, and I’m already wishing it wouldn’t end. Yes, it is that good.

So, today I am forced to face the truth.

It’s going to be a while before I get back to this blog. Because it is summer and I’d rather be swimming and reading The Passage.

For the near future, you can find me on Twitter and Facebook—because it is easier to write (aka, edit) a sentence or two than it is to write (edit) a blog post. I’ll also be on my other blog, a little, because my mom would kill me if there were no regular updates about her grandkid, and on Goodreads so I can list all the books I plan to read while I’m at the park, the pool, the playground and the beach.

    Stacy- Thank you for joining us at the LIRW annual luncheon. The editors and agents are the heart of it. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be able to pull if off.

    Hope to see you next year. Have a great vacation and enjoy that book.

      You are very welcome! I always enjoy the LIRW luncheon, and the location this year was just lovely. You throw a great shindig. 🙂

      I am enjoying my book quite a bit. Still another 500 pages to go–yay!
