Taking a Break in April

Hello all my bloggy friends out there!

First thing's first.  I'm taking a break from blogging in April.  Many of you are participating in the A-Z challenge (okay, all of you- it's now up to 700 something bloggers?).  I just don't have the time to blog every day, so I've decided to take the month off to work on editing my WIP and writing my query letter.  I figured you all would be checking all the a-z people, so I might as well take a break!

But I promise I'll be back in May!  And I'll have something totally awesome to share when I get back.

So please stay with me, because you guys mean the world to me!  I'll periodically lurk around and maybe comment a time or two if I'm taking a break.  Don't want to miss the epic a-z blogfest completely!


Next: I've gotten a few awards I'd like to share.  Colene at The Journey gave me the Write Hard award.  Jenni Merritt gave me the Lovely Blog award, and Carol at Artzicarol Ramblings gave me the Best Blog award!  Thank you so much ladies!










Here are some fab people I'd like to give these awards to:
All my crit partners- you know who you are ;p



Also: My very good friend Catherine Kohman is having a contest for her book Lembas for the Soul.  Her publisher is giving away 5 copies to celebrate the start of filming The Hobbit.  Go here to enter.  If you are a fan of the Lord of the Rings, this book would make an awesome companion.  It's a collection of stories inspired by the the Lord of the Rings books.

I'm really going to miss you guys this month, but hopefully I'll be all done with edits by the time I come back all refreshed and rearing to go in May!  Tootle pip and a skip!  Love you all!

If you're not participating, then April is a good month to take a break. And we're over 800 now!

Good luck with your WIP!

I'm jealous. I'm daunted at the April task. I did it last year and it killed me ... :o) Have a nice time off!

Enjoy wrapping it up! :)

Sad! But you'll get lots of good work done on your WIP. Actually, since I'm not doing the epic A-Z thing either, maybe I'll cut back if everyone ignores me ;)

Been a while since I stopped by! I hope you have a great and productive month away from blogging. Best of luck with the WIP work :D

See you in May!

Abby, I'm totally late on this announcement but I wanted to stop by to say hello. I hope your break's going well. I wish I would've thought of this idea. You and Melissa were on top of things here! It would've been the best time to take a break too. Good luck with your writing. I hope you get a lot done :)
