Radio Silence

This post makes it official, people: I’m taking a vacation…from the internet!

Unfortunately, that includes this website. Between now and January 6, I will maintain radio silence. I won’t be checking email or answering blog comments during that time, and I’m going to do my best to stay away from Twitter and Instagram as well.

Why? you ask.

I have a good reason. You might even LIKE the reason: I’m forcing myself on a writer’s semi-retreat over the holidays so that I can make serious headway on Book 4.

So, this is the pic I took when I started Book 4 this fall (a momentous occasion that clearly required coffee). Don't worry--I've written more since then...but not ENOUGH.

Right now, Book 4 mostly exists in my head. That is mildly distressing, because I’ve promised my editor she can read Book 4 on March 15, 2014. Which less than three whole months away. o.O

I have all these scenes in my head! All these snatches of dialogue! All these dangling plot threads! In other words, all these ideas and not enough pages, so I’m going to spend the holidays giving my manuscript some full time TLC.

Hence, the radio silence. I hope y’all don’t mind, and I REALLY hope that you guys continue talking to each other on this site (and elsewhere!).

One quick note: I have scheduled another blog post or two, which should post on their own between now and January 6. (They’re already scheduled in the pipeline, just waiting to pop out here, so to me, that still counts as radio silence.) But I didn’t want you thinking that I’d come back when it was really an automated thing!

Okay, I’m off to do CRAZY amounts of writing (hopefully)! Wish me luck!!!

And HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
