I know many of you noticed that for the last few months, I haven't been so good at replying to blog comments.
It was something I did religiously for the first 15 months or so after I began blogging in February 2010. I adored having the interaction with you guys, and I know some of you enjoyed it, too.
But then....well, life got in the way. Blame the crazy schedule in the months surrounding my book release. Blame the divorce. Blame the day job. Blame the aliens, since they make good scapegoats for most things, including the fact that I showed up to work yesterday wearing mismatched shoes.
No matter, my virtual book tour is over, as is my one-year term blogging at The Debutante Ball. Though I've got a speaking engagement/book signing in Portland this weekend, that's the last time I'm scheduled for any big book-related events until mid-October.
Can I get a collective WOOOHOOOO!?!?!?!
Oh, there will still be copy edits to do, new books to write, promotional obligations to fulfill, and sex toy collections to alphabetize. Still, I'm going to do my very best to get back to replying to blog comments on a regular basis. I can't promise to do it every day, but I'm going to try.
Er, is there anything you want to talk about?
Right. Um, well, just a reminder that you have until noon on Sunday, September 11 to harass friends, family, or strangers to purchase Making Waves, and then email me your proof for a chance to win a signed copy. Details are here.
Now how about a group hug?
Hey, who grabbed my butt?
