Okay, so that was a LOOONNGG blogcation. I see that I've been gone just about the length of an overdue pregnancy (or that would be true if I'd got rolling in January), and while I think some things were "birthed" in my personal and family life in 2009, none of them were literal babies, haha. Nor books.
But I think the time is right, the time is now, even the decade is now, for me to start on--oh, it's too corny to say "a new chapter," but that's pretty much what I mean. I have a book to write, a plan, and a new beginning for this blog.
I hope to post about six times per month. Along with posts on writing, book reviews and the occasional personal glimpse, twice a month there will be giveaways. Yup, free stuff! Beginning this Thursday, February 4, so be sure to stop back. The first Thursday of every month I'll be giving away a free children's or YA book. These will mostly be MG or YA novels, but nothing in the children's or YA market is ruled out. The third Thursday of every month, I'll give away TWO free critiques of the first 1000 words of a magazine story, chapter book, MG novel, or YA novel. Again, this Thursday, February 4, is the first book give-away, so come back, find out what the book is and how the giveaway will work, and enter to win!
