In the Meantime...

Yeah, so... I haven't posted in a while. Guilty as charged. Reasons for this tardiness:

1. Been busy fielding various Origin-related stuff like writing blurb request letters, making tweaks and edits here and there, cover art, etc.

2. Been busy developing other projects of which I cannot speak.

3. Been busy lying around on the couch, watching Downton Abbey, Hart of Dixie, etc. Some cool new shows I've found: Touch (kind of like a Lost meets Heroes thing, plus Kiefer Sutherland) and Awake (with that guy who played Hook in Peter Pan, can't remember his name).


4. Been busy trying to train my new pair of parakeets. Not going so well. I think I've only succeeded in terrorizing them with my affection. I think they hate me. Also, they may be homosexual. Not sure yet. Need to do more recon.

Puru and Kiwi. (What do you think, do they look gay?)

5. Been busy coaching my amazing team of ten-year-old soccer players. Bragging moment: they're undefeated. Also, they bring me apples at practice.  Booyah. >:-)

If those aren't enough excuses, don't worry--I've got plenty more if you want to hear them. Unfortunately, none of them are legitimate enough to justify my absence from the blogosphere. My bad.

But cool things are happening! For example, in two weeks I get to fly to New York City to meet what I am coming to think of as my Justice League of Superheroes: my agent, editor, and the wicked cool team at Razorbill and Penguin. Also, Hunger Games in IMAX in one week! Am psyched.


Well, I'd keep posting but my six-year-old sister has just arrived and demands to be hugged and spoiled.



  1. Gotta love Downtown Abbey! And I think Hunger Games is a reason to be distracted :)

    Congrats on all the book-related stuff...that's gotta be so exciting :)

  2. Loving Awake - for serious. And after watching that video about birds imitating their owner (I think is what was going on?),...I still don't understand bird owners. :)

  3. I'm seeing Hunger Games at midnight. Already have the tickets.

  4. Don't you just love Downton Abbey?! Can't wait for season 3. And OMG! One week til The Hunger Games!!!!!!!!! Wish I was going to the midnight showing, but have to work the next day. And NY! Wow, have fun!!!
