I know it's been a while, but I needed to take a little time out to decide what I wanted to do, and say, before putting this post together.
Since... well, probably just after Christmas, I've been finding blogging harder and harder to keep up with. It's not because I don't enjoy it anymore, I still love connecting with everyone, sharing good news and helping to pick people up on the bad days. But the pressure I put on myself to comment on every blog post and reply to every comment has zapped some of the enthusiasm.
In reality, I know you all understand. It's hard to keep up with everything, and if some of you don't comment on all of my posts, that's fine with me. I don't think it means you like me any less, it just means real life has taken over. But in my head, I think, "If I stop blogging, everyone will forget me, my book sales will dry up, and when I get back to it, it will be like starting all over again." Some of that might be true. Out of sight, out of mind, and all that. But I will be way more prepared to start afresh if I've had a lengthy time out to focus on things I need to do for me. Namely finishing my next book, and spending some time in the real world.
So, I am going to be quiet for a while, and hopefully this time to recharge will give me a chance to get that new book ready for anyone who is still interested when I get back! :p You will find me around on Facebook and Twitter, and occasionally on my entertainment blog here (I have some events coming up!) http://starshinenews.blogspot.co.uk/
Take care, kids, and feel free to drop me an email if anything awesome occurs!
