I actually meant to publish this post yesterday, but it turns out that when you don't hit the little orange 'publish' button, the post doesn't publish.
Anyway, I'm back from my short hiatus. It was good to have some time away, but the problem with taking time away is that there's always so much to cover when you get back.
First up, I want to thank all the WONDERFUL people who hosted me during my very first book blog tour:
Alex J. Cavanaugh
And I'd also like to thank everyone who took the time out to read and/or comment on my guest posts and interviews. You are all amazing, and I salute you.
On that note, it's time now to announce the winner of my very first giveaway for my very first book! Thank you (again) so much to everyone who entered. I was petrified that no one at all would enter, and I'm so happy that that wasn't the case.
So without any further delay...
And the winner of an eBook verison of Effigy is...
Congratulations to you both! I'll be emailing you shortly.
Last up, I thought I might share a little summary of my Acadia National Park Adventure. So here, for your reading pleasure, is my vacation by the numbers:
Miles walked/ran/hiked/biked: 67
Mountain summit reached: 5
Books purchased: 17 (I love library book sales!)
Words written: 846 (Not a lot, I know, but a lot more than the 0 words written in previous weeks.)
There are other things I want to talk about and need to talk about, but this post is getting long and I need to go to work. I was supposed to have Monday off to get caught up on all the things that have been woefully ignored lately, but I made the mistake of stopping into The Store to check my schedule for the week and saw what my co-workers did to my stockroom in my absence. This was my reaction:
And now I need to go and fix it. It's going to take a while.
But thank you for stopping by today. See you around the blogosphere...
