Here we are again!

Many of my long-time readers are aware that I have a special needs child.  I wouldn't change this experience for anything!  The biggest challenge I've had is learning to be flexible.  It's easy to make up a schedule and plan to follow it, but things are going to happen that make that impossible.  My review career is a perfect example.

Every summer, I vow that I'm going to continue reviewing even though my child is home from school.  I will find a way to get to my computer!  I will find the time to sit and read!  I will check my e-mail and stay in touch with the community!  Every summer that fails to happen.  This one is no exception.  The fact is, most of our summer was spent in hospitals and surrounded by doctors and therapists.  I wouldn't change a moment of it.  The progress that we've both made during the summer is astounding!  But, that means that every vow I made concerning reviewing fell by the way side.

School is back in session, and that means so am I!  Now, I'm a little more realistic than I was last year at this time.  I know that between school meetings and therapies and research, the time that I have to devote to my reading passion will be sporadic.  I do have some great things I'm excited to share with you though!  

I won't be posting every day.  I will most likely not be taking part in tours.  There will most likely not be any release day parties.  The odds are really good that I won't be doing any giveaways in the near future.  That last one actually saddens me a little..  Most of the authors I know are writers because they can't help it, not for fame.  They love being able to share their work and passion with others.  I believe in them and I look forward to sharing it with you as well.  Giveaways and contests require time and planning, which I'm not currently willing to commit to.  

Hopefully, you've all had a wonderful summer full of progress and joy!  I'm excited to be back, no matter how brief it may actually be!  Welcome back, me!!!
