Summer Vacation!


It’s summer, and because I’m pretty busy with the first draft of my current manuscript, I plan to take some time off from blogging. For the rest of June, July, and August, I plan to only post once a week, unless I have big news or a really great idea that I absolutely must write about.

Aside from the writing, this summer I hope to do some re-reading of old favorites as well as reading down my TBR piles. And…I might read some fashion magazines. A few. Well, several. And wear my new big floppy hat (black, bendable brim, big cream-colored flower on the band).

I only wish I had a real hammock instead of just a picture of one.
