Cobwebs are nature's lace doilies...


Lately it's been quiet here on my blog, and it will remain that way for the most part through March.

I'm up to my neck writing toward my February deadline (I was signed for two YA novels with Amulet so I'm working on another contemporary fantasy, though I’m not at liberty to give any more info than that yet ... but soon, I hope!). Between the writing and Splintered signings/promo, I don't have much time for blogging right now.

But, even when something is left alone and neglected for a bit, beauty and enlightenment can still be found if you look hard enough. I've written 170 posts over the last couple of years, with subjects ranging from writing, to soul searching, to pure silliness.

There's a list of the most popular posts (according to # of views) on the bottom of my sidebar, and here's a list of some of my personal faves:

1. Angels Among Us
2. Attack of the Bloodesucking Pygmy Goats
3. Wherein a Shoe Has a Soul
4. Meme of Maniacal Madness
5. What the ER Taught Me About Writing
6. I Want to Be a Spark Plug

If you're looking for something in particular, you can search my blog by subject with the search box I've added on the sidebar, or skim through the labels listed underneath the popular posts.

I've also updated the "website" pages of my blog to include a calendar for tour/signing dates and locations:

Events and Appearances

And I now have a swag request page for bloggers and readers who'd like personalized swag for giveaways or for themselves:

 Show Me the Swag

Busy is good, and hopefully I've filled this spot with enough posts and information to keep it from growing too many dust bunnies until I can return with fresh new posts. (◕‿-) There is beauty in silence ... and wisdom in introspection, so I'll leave you to your thoughts and get back to my writing.

Have a wonderful early 2013, and I'll see you very soon!
