It’s officially summer! It’s over 100 degrees in New York: ice-cream melts before you can eat it, Bed Bath & Beyond is selling nothing but fans, and all I can think about is how I’d really like to be in a pool somewhere. To be under water would just be the best thing right now.
You’ll have to forgive me for the lack of posts lately. As you know, Loved comes out this summer (!!!) and most of my writing energy is going into reviewing final edits. We are thisclose to having the text finalized and sent off for print. I promise to let you know as soon as a release date is set.
The biggest news is, I am no longer self-publishing. I have a publisher! WOOHOO!!! Also very big news is that I’ve been invited to write a contribution to a major online newspaper. It will post the week of the release, so you’ll hear more about that soon as well.
What else have I been doing? I’ve been running three miles almost every day, training for The Color Run NYC in August. I have never been much of a runner before, but my goal is to do the 5K in 27 minutes. Last weekend, I dressed up 1920′s style for a jazz era festival at Governor’s Island, New York (see picture), and I have two trips coming up in July: home to Tennessee and then to Florida to visit family.
How is summer treating all of you?
I’ll be keeping you up to date on Loved news, and I’ll try to get some more posts up here soon.
