Stop the World and Let Me Off *AN UPDATE*

GAH! I'm the worst Buccaneer to ever sail the blogging seas! I haven't posted all week, and I skipped last Friday's post. I've also been absolutely terrible at keeping up with everyone else's posts. I'm so sorry! I do care about what you all have to say, I'm just having trouble managing my time right now. 

Have you heard this song? *please say yes*

It's a classic, if you're into old country like we are in my house. Anyway, the song's great, and the first four lines are how I feel right now. Except, not the love part. Love is good. Life is crazy. Just apply the lyrics to life, and you've got me. See below? I changed it for your reading pleasure. Hope Waylon understands. *grin*

Stop the world and let me off
I'm tired of goin' 'round n' 'round
I played the game of love life and lost
So, stop the world and let me off.

So, since the world won't stop spinning, I just keep trucking forward. I'm absolutely failing as a critique partner, my writing is nonexistent (which means EVER TWO has been sitting at 20K for a very long time - not to mention my poor neglected WIPs unrelated to the EVER series), and my house is a mess. 

Ah, who am I kidding? My house is ALWAYS a mess. 


The good news, is that I am getting very close to EVER's release date of OCTOBER 1st!!!

Wow. I don't know if I really thought I'd ever get to say that. 




Now I just need a cover, some swag, and all the stars aligned. 

I'm really nervous. 

Anyway, in other news, I'm also working as a Proofreader AND an Acquisitions Editor for CURIOSITY QUILLS! On top of trying to manage my own career goals, run a household, raise Princess Awesomest-Girl-Alive, AND continue accepting a VERY small amount of painting orders (for the old Bella Inspired business you may or may not remember). 

I'm swamped. I'm stressed. And I'm happy. 

It's a strange mingling of feelings.

So yeah, I'd like to stop the world from spinning for a day or two - just to take a breath. 


  1. If you figure out how to stop the world for a few days, please share the secret! :)

  2. Welcome the party. I so feel your pain! :(

  3. I love Waylon Jennings. Great song choice. I hear ya on the time management, but hey, better to have too much going on than nothing, right? The Blogfest cops are not going to come after you for missing a few posts.

  4. Remember breathing is important ;) Good luck with everything! I'm sure it'll all come together.

  5. That's really cool! Keep it up and I can't wait to read your book!

  6. The important thing is that you're HAPPY!!! Congrats on your new position and your Oct. 1st release date:-)
