Did you miss me?

Yikes, that might be my longest blog break so far.  I didn't mean to let so much time go by!  How about we let bygones be bygones, now that I'm showing up in your feed again, and I'm breaking the ice here with some Monday commentary:

  1. Sally Yates is a hero for our times.
  2. France voted for sanity. I maybe didn't expect that, but I'm grateful that it happened.
  3. I'd like to avoid politics, but I cannot. We're soaking in it.
  4. I really really really wanted to go to RT but we're buying a new HVAC system instead. This is my adult face:
  5. My laptop is on its last legs. Keys. Disk. Whatever, it's dying. I have a fancy new tablet thing to replace it but I hate change and I haven't moved all my accounts and the keyboard does weird things if I type too fast and waaaah.
  6. I still have kids and they seem to expect me to do things for them.
  7. I still have a job and they also seem to expect me to do things.
So blogging's been taking a little backseat.  But I haven't given up!  I just got all my ducks lined up to attend this year's Reading Until Dawn Con in Denver and I cannot wait.  It's just the break I need.  Authors! Games! Pillowforts! And my favorite thing, Cards Against Humanity.

AND!!  RustCity Book Con is happening again this year and I am going!  Once again I'll be featuring some progressive flash fiction which will undoubtedly take some interesting twists and turns.  If you aren't signed up for the conference, you should be!

Speaking of awesome author/reader meetups, I have a review coming up for a new author duo and their Love Overboard series of connected romances with a sailing theme. I met one of the authors at the last RUDC and had so much fun, I can't miss anything they write. Ahoy!

Stay tuned.

Oh cool! My link worked (I added you to my "blogs I follow" section on my own blog, and there you were!). Sometimes I'm not so sure I put in the correct URL. :P

Look forward to Rust City again this year. That was a fun con!

Thanks Stacy! The feeds can be mysterious, can't they?

We will get going on the flash fiction hopefully this week! I am determined!
