Long Time No Blog

Sad family news has kept me overseas in America and away from posting. And so there are masses of cobwebs and dust bunnies in my little corner of Domestic chores aren't high on my list of priorities right now.

What I will focus on is some fantastic sale news from my CP Stephanie Kuehnert. She has just sold her second novel, Ballads of Suburbia, to MTV Books. You can read the first chapter here. I'll be interviewing Stephanie in an upcoming post to celebrate her debut book's release this July.

Before I go, a little tribute to someone special--someone who adored ladybugs, who long ago introduced me to pistachio nuts and showed me how to be a domestic goddess--my stepmom. (Iris, if you're listening, I promise I'll get started on those cobwebs ASAP).

Good to have you back. I can't wait to read Steph's book.

Btw, are you going to San Fran... I know I've probably already asked, but I can't remember :)

Thanks, Sara. I'll definitely be in San Fran. It'll be fantastic to meet in you person at long last!

Sara Hantz said...

Yay!!!! When are you going and coming back... are you on a flight that stops in NZ - we're going Air New Zealand.

Beautiful tribute to your stepmom and what a beautiful name, Iris. I'm planning to plant some Irises in my garden this fall to bloom next spring. I'll think of her as I plant them :)

And thanks for the congrats! It means a lot!

Oh, how lovely, Steph! Thanks so much for your beautiful note.
