Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Either you’re thrilled, because I update sporadically (and with abundance in those random moments) and it may clog your inbox, or you’re sad (to which I’m flattered). I thought I’d offer an explanation, and it’s exciting news!
I’m in the middle of preparing for a move to the East Coast, so lots of my time has been spent searching for jobs, internships, and apartments. On top of that, I am in my final days (45, to be exact!) of undergrad and need to focus on my schoolwork. My focus is paying off, apparently.
Remember my review of the memoir Carrier by Bonnie J. Rough? She is currently at my university for our 7th annual In Print festival, where newly published authors and poets come to read to and answer questions from young writers. My professor and the assistant chair of the department asked me to write the introduction to Rough’s reading, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I spent the majority of my weekend working on several drafts. After reading it in front of my peers and professors, Rough joined me at the podium, hugged me, and thanked me for “the best” introduction she’s received “by far.” A bit of a starstruck moment for me!
In other news, remember my post about Parragon Books and their new line of baby/toddler/children’s books? I was astonished at the traffic my blog received after they tweeted my post!
A big thank you once again for noticing my post!
So now, followers, I’d like to ask you – what’s new in your bookworm/publishing life? Share your stories! I’d love to hear them.
