Top 10 Reasons I've Been Missing

(Not in chronological order)
  1. I'M EXPECTING A BAAAAABBBYYYY!!!!
    Yep, that's right! Little Person #3 is due July 4th (unless that date ends up adjusted later) and we couldn't be more excited! It's going to be so fun to see if I'm on a roll with boys or if I'll get to have a little me. Either way, it's going to be awesome because babies are just--awesome!
  2. I'M EXPECTING A BOOK
    Sounds weird, I know. What sounds even weirder is that I'm going to say it's halfway arrived. I released the Kindle version of my 5th book (second in the Kitten Files series) on Black Friday. The print version is following shortly on its heels. Meet "The Case of the Missing Hero":

  3. I'M A BOOK DESIGNER!
    The book cover design requests (and lots of promo design work, too) have been coming in steadily. It's great fun! See some of my latest...


  4. I'VE BEEN VISITING WITH FAMILY
    'Tis the season! Plus, my family of origin is moving out of state, so I'm trying to soak them up while I've still got 'em!
  5. I HAVE A 2-YEAR-OLD
    'Nuff said. ;) He's a good, super fun kid, but very busy...
  6. I HAVE PEOPLE ASKING FOR WRITING FEEDBACK
    You know who you are, yes I still remember you, no I haven't forgotten about you, no your writing doesn't stink. Yes, I've been busy, busy, busy. (See this post.)
  7. I EAT LIKE A TEENAGE BOY
    I'm serious. This could technically go under the pregnancy headline, but it's such a significant part of my day, I've given it its own section! I'm also nursing my 9-month-old, so it takes a lot of food to keep me going!
  8. I REALLY LIKE TO HANG OUT WITH MY TYLER
    I try not to "work" when he's home. Cuz he's my bestest friend.
  9. I SOMETIMES CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING TO SAY
    I know, this one's a real shocker for anyone who knows me well. If this were a socio-economic-political ranting blog, I can safely say there'd always be something for me to say. But it's not. And sometimes I just have writer's blog writer's block.
  10. I READ TOO MUCH
    I have read so many Kindle books lately. At a disgustingly fast pace. It's just something I do when my brain feels like a limp noodle and the rest of my body feels the same. I guess I could be blogging. Of course, there's no guarantee anything I said would make much sense...

  2. Congratulations on the new little one! How exciting! :) Yeah, I'd have to say I think you're a tad busy. I've missed your posts, but understand how hard it must be to make yourself get something written when you don't have any idea what to write and you really don't feel like doing much at all. :)
    Have a blessed Christmas!
