For those of you who didn’t win, please don’t be sad! I’ve already set up the next giveaway, and it should be up and running by the time you wake up tomorrow.

Now, I don’t know if you guys noticed, but I almost completely disappeared in March. I’m sorry! It was an accident! The whole month got away from me. If you follow me on Twitter or on Instagram, you might already know some of these, but this is what happened:

The Flu

This was the LONGEST I can ever remember being sick and not being able to do anything. Some days, I couldn’t even read, which meant that I watched a lot of TV.


I actually watched ALL of this show, The 100, and I was completely obsessed. I highly recommend it, especially for the character development from the beginning of the show and the end of the second season AND for all the cool women character.

But just as a head’s up, it may not be for everyone. It’s DEFINITELY rated PG-13.

The Interviews

While I was trying to get all caught up from being sick, I got a call for an interview for a job I’d applied to before I got sick. There were two. They went well.

The New Job 

I started right away. I’m now an executive assistant for an office shared by a marketing office and a subcontracting/construction firm. It’s part-time (like my old job was), and so far, it’s fun.

Also, the older daughter of one of the executives read (and enjoyed) The Ever Afters before I even applied. The first couple books, anyway. She’s still reading Book 3.

The Old Job

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might know that I’ve been working for an after school program since early last year. It was very helpful while I was writing the Ever Afters, but since the deadlines have settled down, driving out to its location in traffic has started to consume more and more of my time. So, I started to look for something closer to where I lived.

When I got the new job and handed in my resignation at the after school, I offered to work two weeks more while they looked for a replacement. That’s pretty typical. The part that ISN’T typical is that I started right away at the other

So, for the bulk of the last two weeks, I was starting work at 9am in one office and ending work at 9pm in another office. That was pretty tiring, and sadly, I haven’t recovered yet.

My Little Brother

He came to visit! With his girlfriend! It was very fun to show them around, especially since I’m trying to convince Clint to come move here.

The food carts were a hit. Plus, they both made a point to buy locally made/designed shoes here, which I thought was funny, especially since his girlfriend made her purchase at the Nike store and my brother bought some significantly fancier boots somewhere else.

The Poll

Btw, a reader on Facebook requested that I start a poll on fun questions. If you’re interested, you can check it out below or on The Ever Afters page! 🙂

That’s all I can think of at the moment! Long story short: In March, I was sick, then very busy, and I’m ending it a bit tired.

In April, however, I plan to post more. (I also hope to catch up on some of the questions you guys posed in the first giveaway, but since it has been so long, I think I’ll have to email you guys your answers!!)
