It’s Summer Break! Now what?

Both of my teens are finally done with a year of remote learning (do not recommend) and I’m off for a few weeks myself. Which, is the perfect time for my laptop to die. *head desk. It’s not powering on despite having power to the device. That can’t be good. Cross fingers and toes that my computer repair guy can fix whatever is ailing this less than a year old laptop. Most of my writing is stored in the cloud and old files are saved to external hard drives, but immediate writing may be lost, and for someone who writes daily, that will be a crushing blow if it is unsalvageable. If you hear a wail in the skies later today, you’ll know why.

For now, I’m pretending my laptop isn’t dead and that my slow back up laptop will serve my immediate needs. A girl can dream.

After a year of being stuck inside inside, we’re all looking forward to getting out and seeing friends. My whole family is theatrical so we’ve all been in, or are currently in a production. I just finished a run in As You Like It, my daughter just wrapped her part in She Kills Monsters where she got to do a lot of sword play! And my son is in the musical Little Women later in July. My son’s show has just started rehearsal so no pics yet!

Assuming my computer survives, the plan for me this summer is writing as much as humanly possible. July will be a cover reveal for the book formerly known as Enigma. SOOO stoked to show you that one. It’s a whole different look the publisher is taking it! September is the 10th Anniversary of Pulled and there is a special something-something coming for that, so stay tuned!

And, if you missed it, every Monday at noon (EST) tune into Bound By Books a podcast I am a part of where five authors talk about, you guessed it, books! You can check out the broadcasts here.

Until next time, stay cool my peeps!
