Hey, bookworms! It feels like forever ago since I last talked to you. (I’ve been saying that a lot lately, haven’t I?) Of course, there was my workshop recap just a few days ago, but I haven’t been very active in the comment section.

Well hello there bookworms! It’s been a while. I know. I’m sorry. Life has been crazy. We’re talking supreme cheese pizza with olives and pineapple and bacon and sausage and the whole nine yards crazy. Since my summer isn’t going to settle down anytime soon, I’ve decided to switch up my blogging schedule. Instead of three times a week, I will be …
