At 4:01 p.m. today I turned in my third book. 70,265 words. Whew. I turned it in a few weeks later than originally agreed upon. This was due to school distractions and also consistently finding I had much to say about topic. I still have more to say. I had to scale back some of the sections. I can look at unrequited love from many different angles–sociological, literary, psychological, and personal.

The new book’s Goodreads page has been posted–the cover you see is not the final cover. I was shown the new cover last week and I’m beyond excited. It’s gorgeous! I look forward to sharing.

My second semester of grad school ended on May 4th. I got two A’s this time–none of that A minus nonsense from last semester.

Last week reader Hope sent me an encouraging article about teens who enjoy letter writing. I was happy to hear from her. The timing felt right. It’s time for me to re-join the world–the blogging world and the real world.

It’s been an intense few months. I am at once grateful for the experience and glad the season is changing…Now onto the editing portion of the program.
