Long Time, No See…

Posted June 18, 2013 by Stephanie in / 0 Comments

So, I have to apologize. I’ve taken a very long break. The posts that have gone up were scheduled. I have had some troubling family problems in the past month. My family unfortunately lost a beautiful twenty three year old girl this month. She was my cousin. I unfortunately did not have the pleasure of knowing her as well as I wish I could have. It’s sad really. I lost a cousin of mine, who was the same age as me and I didn’t know her all that well. I really don’t like the sound of that at all. The whole scenario has kind of put me in a funk. My cousin unfortunately took her own life. She had chronic migraines that were 24/7. They never went away. She saw many specialists throughout the years ever since she was 15 when she was diagnosed with chronic migraines. She tried many different medications and she couldn’t always hold her food down. Her room was like a cave; dark, cool, and quiet. I went to her wake and it was amazing how many people showed up. It was a packed house. Many of the people I didn’t know.

Unfortunately, since finding out my cousin committed suicide, it put me in a bit of a funk because it brought up some really bad memories of my father, whom some of you know took his life as well. So, I haven’t really been up to blogging. I really haven’t been up for much of anything, really. But, I just wanted to let you all know that I am working on getting posts up for you. I think that the sooner I get back into a regular routine the sooner I can get out of this funk. I have a few posts that are scheduled right now. But you can also see some of my posts either at Bookish or at The Raven Readers. (I’ll put both of those buttons at the bottom of this post). You all know that The Raven Readers is a collab blog that I founded. But, what you don’t know is that I am also a blog contributor to Bookish. Evie needed help and I was one of six or seven that she chose.

I just wanted you all to know that I didn’t forget about you. And that I am still alive and okay. I’ve just been dealing with a lot of stuff right now. I promise, I’m getting back in the swing of things, but give me a little slack if I don’t get everything done right away. I love you all and I thank you all for the support and the love of this community. I love you all.

Find me on:

In the meantime, I have an extra copy of Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I’m going to be doing a giveaway for it. Unfortunately, due to the cost of shipping it is US ONLY. I know that sucks for the International followers but I simply do not have the funds to send out a personal copy. I’m sorry. This giveaway will run from right now until July 21st 2013.
