Are we having fun yet?

A number of things have happened to me recently that just re-emphasizes the fact that a writer cannot quit writing no matter how hard they try. No, I didn't try to quit, but I did go absolutely silent for the summer.

First off, let me say that free books are such a joy! I love 'em and recently one of my online friends hooked me up with this one

Needless to say, I was thrilled. And reading is what spurs me to the writing desk, so this was the very first nudge.

Then, another writing friend, MB4's fabulous-noir-lady-about-town Marta Stephens began writing a new book and shared it with me and it just tickled my writing bone all summer long.

Most recently, my good friend, Stephen Zimmer invited me to be a panelist at next year's FandomFest: Outgrowth of Fright Night Film Fest in Louisville KY, and at Duckon, in Chicago IL next June.

A PANELIST??? omg. I am too honored and thrilled and heck yes, now seriously involved with getting back into the writing seat. So... here we go again. This post is my official reunion post as I rejoin the writing world.

PS-I am also LEAVING the radio world. If you are a fan of the show, I am so sorry because you are the reason I did it for nearly two years. But to be honest, my writing must take precedence over all now, and the show is a major time constraint.

Cheers to you, fabulous fan, and here's to a great year ahead!
