I’m taking my blog sabbath a month earlier than I usually do. This is a practice I started four years ago, and it’s something that refreshes and resets me in more ways than I know how to explain. In addition to the blog, I will also be off social media.
I’ve chosen June over July this year for a couple of reasons. First, I’m on deadline this summer. These early weeks, when I’m finding my way back into my manuscript, feel especially important. I don’t need any other computer time vying for my attention.
Second, we have a lot of family things going on next month. My boys are home from school. My parents are moving back to town. My husband and I are going on a cruise to celebrate our twentieth anniversary. This is a perfect time to step away.
Finally, I have a book coming out in July, and I want to be here to share its story.
I’ve scheduled some posts to re-run — a “new” one each week — that I hope will interest you. Enjoy your summer, friends! I’ll see you again soon.

Have a wonderful month of rest (and happy 20th!) and we’ll see you when you get back. 🙂 Enjoy.
Thank you, Sarah!
Enjoy your sabbatical, Caroline. June is set to be quite busy for me as well, and for some of the same reasons as yours. I need to think about unplugging too.
Got Over in the Wetlands on pre-order, so I’m looking forward to it in July. See you then!
It’s a wonderful to get away. Let me know what you think if you try. And hooray for Wetlands!

Happy Anniversary! Enjoy your month off and your cruise! We’ve never done a cruise, but would sure like to. 🙂
And aahh, you’ll miss the cover reveal of BANISHED. Harper told me to do it between June 12 – 26 so I’m getting ready for that. The summer months are terrible for cover reveals . . .
Well, boo, boo, boo! I’ll talk it up in July. And I’ll see you at the schmooze in a few weeks?

Any chance you’ll be in Louisiana this summer?
Not this year!
