My reviews were kind of lackluster for a few weeks in May/early June. Posting was scarce. I tweeted a lot about food.
That would be because I'm pregnant.

In addition to being tired and somewhat sick, I have also been super nervous for the last few months, because remember when I posted about how February sucked? That's because I had a miscarriage. Which really did suck, emotionally more than physically. So when I found out I was pregnant again in April, I got scurred. I was reluctant to tell anyone and I didn't even want to treat it like the real deal, for fear of getting too attached. However, we've had countless ultrasounds and prenatal visits by now, and things have been going smoothly. I'm 14 weeks along and getting way more excited now that I'm in a safer spot, time-wise.
Anywho, I hope this explains a few things from the last couple of months: fewer "creative" posts, less presence on Twitter, fewer comments on other blogs. I even had to post one of my Novel Publicity blog tour stops 2 days late (felt really bad about it, too), because I felt so tired/nauseous from morning sickness that I couldn't look at my Kindle for days on end. (You know it's bad when the book blogger can't even bring herself to READ. Oh my.)
This also explains why my monthly wrap-up posts have been kind of vague. "Oh, I had a good month" in April should roughly translate to "OMG I'M IN A FAMILY WAY, Y'ALL!! But I can't tell you yet. Frick."
Nowadays, I am back from vacation and firmly in the second trimester (read: less nausea and fatigue), so I hope you will see a kick of enthusiasm from me around here.
So that's my news, officially out in the blogosphere. I promise I won't plague you with details of my pregnancy here, but feel free to email me if you're dying to know all about round ligament pain and stretch marks. I AIN'T SHY.
