I feel like I owe you all a gigantic apology. I said I was back into this blogging thing, but since I last posted, stuff happened.
First and foremost, last week, my best friend's cat was taken suddenly ill, and we had to have her put to sleep last Wednesday. To some, that might sound like a feeble excuse, and I understand why. I used to feel the same. I always understood pet death would be sad, but before I had pets, I just kind of... shrugged it off. NOW I know better, and it wasn't even my cat. It's been a rough week for my friend, and I've spent a lot of time trying to help out in any way I can. It was pretty awful to see such a beautiful, full of life cat disintegrate so suddenly, and while it's not as hard for me as for my friend, it still hit me in a way I hadn't expected.
Secondly, I've been super busy sorting out the book signing stuff! Annalisa pointed out- rightly so - that I didn't include details of where it's happening in my last post! It wasn't entirely unintentional. It's just, most of the people who read this blog live in America, so the likelihood of anyone being able to come is VERY minimal. However, Annalisa was right. If I am promoting this event, I better do it properly! So... here are the deets:
"Local authors Kyra Lennon
and Annalisa Crawford will be holding a book signing on June 15th at
the Smugglers Inn, Dawlish, Devon. Books will be available for sale on the day, plus
giveaways of signed bookmarks and other promo items. There will also be a
raffle to raise money for Richard's Wish - top prize is a Kindle, but
many other items will be raffled, too!"
If there are any Westcountry writers reading this, it would be amazing if you could come along and see us! It's shaping up to be a pretty good day, and the more people we get, the better! The Smugglers Inn is a great pub, with stunning views, even better food, and a great family atmosphere.
So... that's what I've been doing. The thing with being busy is that I'm still doing everything I need to do, but it feels like I'm just going through the motions. Please know that if I promised you a blog tour/cover reveal post, it will be done, and please don't take my short, quick email responses as sign that I'm no longer interested in what you're doing. I still love and support you all, I'm just running on limited time and trying to cram way too much stuff into the day.
