Sorry I've been such a neglectful blogger lately. I've been under a crazy insane KEEPER 2 deadline (that book is a BEAST, people. Seriously, hardest thing I've ever written)

But last night, after a marathon 16-hour proofreading session (okay, fine, there was a 1/2 hour twitter shenanigan break in there) I reached that point where I'd officially done everything I could think of and it was time to send it off to my amazing editor. Which means I MADE MY DEADLINE!!!!

It was down to the wire (my deadline is actually today--SHE IS READING IT AS WE SPEAK) and I have no idea how many more rounds of revision I have left (like I said, hardest book I've ever written). But I did it. I made it. I'M DONE! For now.

So hopefully that means things will get a little more regular around here again. I have a ton of posts percolating and some contests and other awesome things. And if you've been waiting for an email (or a blog interview) from me I might actually get around to doing that. Oh, and then there's that whole crazy WRITEONCON THING happening next week (OMG how are we already to that point???) So lots of things going on. Can't wait!

In the meantime, I just wanted to thank you all for bearing with my bad blogging ways. I still have LOTS of deadlines ahead of me, so I'm sure things will get hectic again. But it's so great having your support and patience. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

And now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to TRY and actually get some sleep. Maybe. At least a couple hours. :)



  1. Sleep well! You've worked your tail off - enjoy some down time :)

  2. Congrats! You did it! Hope you can catch up on rest now.

  3. Congrats!!! Great job!!!! So proud of you. You deserve that nap/extended hibernation :D

  4. Cute cat picture. Congrats! I'm amazed you can spend so long proof reading. I'd go crossed eyed.

  5. YAY for being done!!! Hope you have lots of great dreams and rest! lol

  6. How can you even manage all of the crazy stuff to do? You're incredible, Shannon, never let anyone tell you differently. :)

  7. Good for you, Shannon! and those shenanigan breaks are life-savers. :)
