Here we can post if we have been off line for a while, had a break from the group, had a long holiday, finished a book, became a superstar, well maybe not !

If we are going away, busy writing please place here, let un know you are busy promoting a book, writing a book.

Or just having a break, I know some members have been very quite lately, where are they...

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) | 823 comments I've been busy reading and moderating on my book club on here on goodreads The Reading for Pleasure book club and when I finish reading a book I post my review here on goodreads. I'll try to come to this group and check in once a week if I can. Just been busy.

Since I've stopped being a moderator my life has been super busy. I have a job that I work from home, our family business and 3 weeks ago, I started a part-time job out of the house. So my activity on here will be sparse and my reading hours have resorted to just before bed and during the commercials of my tv shows.

Victoria Dougherty (goodreadscomvictoria_dougherty) | 61 comments Writing and editing up a storm! Took my son to Prague to visit family and friends for his 13th birthday - and it was a blast! Recovering from nursing all three of my kids through the Pompeii of stomach flus ;)

Lorrea, I'm exhausted just reading that!! Don't burn yourself out, try and fit some rest in.

Victoria I had a weekend visit with my best friend to Prague a few years ago. Gorgeous place, we had a blast too!!!


message 7: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Dougherty (goodreadscomvictoria_dougherty) | 61 comments Prague is a best kept secret - like Chicago :)


message 8: by Janet , Moderator (new)

Janet  | 5671 comments Mod
Then hopefully one day I'll make it to Chicago!


message 9: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Dougherty (goodreadscomvictoria_dougherty) | 61 comments It's awesome - I grew up there. If you ever do go, you must visit The Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. It's a former speakeasy from Al Capone's day and has some of the best live jazz you'll find.


message 10: by Amber (new)

Amber Foxx (amberfoxx) I feel as if I've been absent. Answering questions for a couple of blog interviews, working a promotion with two other mystery authors, and of course the day job.

message 28: by Ty (new)

Ty Patterson | 542 comments People drop out.it's no big deal.

expecting a whole lotta folks to consistently keep posting on an anonymous forum for years is unrealistic.

who knows how many of us will still be around here in a year's time!


message 29: by Sean, Moderator (new)

Sean Peters | 9135 comments Mod
Ty

yes I know and I know we have busy authors who pop off to promote etc..

message 32: by Ava (new)

Ava Marsh | 34 comments I've been a bit slack posting in here for a while. Just had my head down finishing a novel, and now with Untouchable coming out in May, I'm busy getting ready for that. But I haven't forgotten you all!

message 36: by Blanche (new)

Blanche Manos (blanchedaymanos) | 30 comments Right! One of those things we don't want to look back on except maybe to put it down to experience. It's really sad there are people ready to take advantage.http://www.blanchedaymanos.com/treasu...

Kerry Hunter (kerryelizabeth) | 268 comments Well life has really thrown a lot at me lately. There was a breakup, I moved away from my dad's place for the first time ever and am living on my own (ooo scary) and I lost a few friends along the way so things have been busy and tough. Getting back into reading again now though and have missed all you guys!

Hi Kerry!!!!!! I am so sorry that life has been throwing you curveballs. It sounds like you have been through a terribly rough time. Gosh, you just never know what is around the corner, do you? One of the hardest things about life. So pleased you are getting your mojo back, both life and reading mojo. Thanks so much for checking in!!! XOXO

Kerry

Welcome back, nice to have you back.

You can see how we have grown, a lot more friends and a lot more chatting.

Hope everything is better in your life.

I had a tough two weeks with my diabetes, when very low 3-4 times.

Okay now.

Good to see you


message 42: by Eduardo (new)

Eduardo Suastegui (esuastegui) The writing thing... it takes a lot of time and energy. I've been popping in to lurk here and there, but yeah, I'm still here. Good to see all the folks here interacting!


message 43: by Kerry (new)

Kerry Hunter (kerryelizabeth) | 268 comments Sean not sure if you remember whether I'm a fellow diabetes sufferer or not but know that my inbox both here and facebook is open to talk to on those unstable days and I pray your levels are improving for now.

Thank you as well for the welcomes everyone :) feels good to be back!

Amber (amberterminatorofgoodreads) | 823 comments Sorry I have not been around in a while in the group. I have been busy reading, Staying active at my Reading for Pleasure book club on here with a few other book clubs I am active at, getting ready to go to MTAC which is a local anime convention in TN next month and is my second year going and am working on a costume so will be my first time cosplaying there as Ash Ketchum from Season 1 of the anime Pokémon so am currently working on my costume for the convention in April. I have also been helping a friend out with her online indie horror film festival she is putting on this Summer as one of the Judges and so I've been helping her judge the films that are being submitted to it. So been doing that, working on my horror and dark fantasy web serials on here which are works in progress right now at my goodreads writing page called Written In Their Blood and EPICQUEST, my movie reviews once a week for friends and family on facebook on Saturdays, and posting my book reviews on my goodreads page too. I hope everyone has a good St. Patrick's Day. Last book I finished reading was Little Brother which was a pretty good read and am now reading A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness then will go to my other reads.
