Time For A Break

Summer’s coming and I need a break.

I’m going to be taking a break from blogging for the entire summer.

I just finished writing the manuscript for my next book and will be spending the next month or so editing that and preparing query letters and researching agents. I plan to spend my summer sending queries and manuscripts to agents in hopes of finding the right one. I’ll also be writing my next book, working and trying to sell my house. And I’ll be enjoying countless hikes, campfires and starlit skies too.

The one thing I won’t be doing is blogging.

I don’t know when I’ll be back. And maybe it will be sooner than I think. But this summer, I want to let what comes to me saturate my heart and mind before putting it in words and sharing it with the world.

And when I’m ready, I’ll be back. Or maybe I won’t be. I don’t know.

Goodbye for now and thanks for reading.

Enjoy your summer!

I was one of those people who thought she didn’t have much. When Drew and I moved from our one-bedroom apartment to our four-bedroom house three years ago, I told people we didn’t have much to move. After seeing the car-loads of stuff come into our house, I remember rethinking my initial thought. We had […]
