Angry Robots Attack
It’s been a little while, I know. I’ve been a busy girl.
The holiday season is always a busy time for everyone, and I used that to console myself every time I felt guilty for not having anything new to post here. It wasn’t just a simple way to justify things, though, I really was insanely busy. I completed FIVE mid-sized crochet projects (some were Christmas presents) and made progress on one big project. I was out of town for almost two whole weeks visiting family, both of the blood and adopted-through-life-experiences varieties. I also finished my fourth book review for The Future Fire.
I have started a new novel (or maybe novella; only time will tell), and have been making slow but sure progress on that, as well. This one is very near and dear to my heart, and I have really high hopes for it. I would love to share an excerpt with you, but I have resolved that this time, no one – not even my husband – gets to know details or read any of it until I am ready for beta readers. This doesn’t mean I have forgotten my other works in progress, and I may still plug away at those while working on this, but this one simply must take precedent.
Finally, I have site news. I have been accepted as a member of the Angry Robot Army. Angry Robot Books is a publishing house based in the UK, and formerly an imprint of HarperCollins Publishing. Their main focus is science fiction and fantasy, but it doesn’t end there. What this means for you, readers of AllwaysUnmended, is that there will be even more great book news, reviews, and author features here.
When I started AllwaysUnmended a little over a year ago, I wasn’t quite sure where I was going with it yet, or where it would lead me, I only knew that I needed to get started to avoid sitting on my hands forever. Over time, it has grown, and I’ve enjoyed watching it and growing with it. It has taken a decidedly bookish slant, and with my passion for – maybe even obsession with – books, I shouldn’t be surprised, but I kind of am. Pleasantly, though, to be sure. This doesn’t mean I’ll stop posting about life, or posting photos, or even the occasional story excerpt, though, just that there will be a whole lot of tasty bookish treats, too.
I know that a lot of my regular readers wait for me to announce on social networks when there is a new post up, but I ask you to please, go down to the lower portion of the sidebar on the right-hand side of the main page, and click to subscribe. Tell your friends about the site if you like it. And feedback … I love me some feedback! Page views tell me a lot about what people are reading here, and how often, but comments go even further to tell me what you like about what you’re reading, so if you get the urge, don’t hold back! Feedback will help me get you more of the types of content you like!
