Okay. I should have said good-bye before I left. But that's not the squooshy apology part. I mean, I figured most, if not all, of you follow Miss Snark's First Victim and knew I'd be leaving for vacation.
What writer wants to be redundant, right?
Anyway...I'M BACK! *big, cheesy grin*
Here's the apology part: I haven't done much around here! Other than the weekly BASICS, I mean. I've got all sorts of ideas and even a plan or two, but to be honest, running two blogs is more overwhelming than I'd anticipated, even with the AWESOME HELP I'm getting around here.
*pauses to beam at MAD, LIZZY, and TARYN*
Anyway, I'm sorry. Remember a month or two ago when I asked you to tell me your favorite MG/YA authors? That's because I'm going to start trying to round up a few of them for interviews and other fun things around here. And we're going to do more in-house critting, too; we just need to grow our community a little more first, so we don't keep reading the same things from the same people. Over and over.
The FORUMS are the lifeblood of this place, at any rate. I AM BLOWN AWAY BY THE AWESOMENESS OF THE COMMUNITY YOU'VE CREATED THERE. Seriously!
So. Bear with me. And keep being your amazing selves.
(Have I mentioned how cool I think you all are?)
