The Paperback Is Here, But I Am Not

Since I only announced when the Kindle edition of CAMP NEVER released, I wanted to quickly jump in and say that the paperback is now available on Amazon! You can find it here.

I won't be sticking around to do the usual things that come with a book release. This is the time that I should be promoting my new book on a regular basis, but I won't be.

I'm taking a break from blogging, Twitter, and other media related to my author life. Because...

A) I want to focus on drafting for a little while. The completed, unpublished manuscripts I have right now aren't appealing to me, and I want to draft two or three new manuscripts and see which one I'd like to publish next. But more importantly...

B) My life outside of writing has been very busy. It's not anything secret, but it has to do with my family, which I choose not to share much about on my public social media. But I will say that it's a good, exciting thing and nothing to worry about.

So, I'm going to free up some time to focus on other big things, but I plan on returning to blogging in a few months. I look forward to hearing what's new with everybody.

Take care!

How exciting about the paperback release! Congrats! :)

Drafting never fails to eat up a lot of time, so I'm not surprised you feel the need to take a break from blogging and other forms of social media. I can only imagine how much more hectic something like that is when real life is so busy, too! Hope you have a fun and productive few months offline!
