In the Land of Emily

Once upon a time in the Land of Emily there was a girl, Emily who ... 

Oh forget it, clearly I am not a fairy tale writer. 

I was going to write a wonderful little blog post about why I haven't been posting but I don't really have any excuses except:

1. I've been traveling

2. I've been reading and watching Mad Men

3. I've been in a creative mud hole to which my muse refuses to come

4. I've been looking for a job

So. I am no longer traveling, I am nearing the end of Season 2 of Mad Men, my mud hole is drying up and today I got a job. Does this mean you should expect more posts in the future? God, I hope so. In the meantime, here are some of the books I've been reading. I'm on a Nora Roberts kick.

Elsewhere, please head on over to Misadventures of a Super Librarian, Ramblings on Romance, and The Good The Bad The Unread for a fun filled week dedicated solely to Western Romances called, THE GREAT WESTERN DRIVE. My very favorite kind. I cannot wait for this: 

Due out September 2nd or thereabouts. I love Jo. I love this cover. I shall love this book. Is it September yet?

Also, check this out a four book a day giveaway. It's a great new site called The Season dedicated to historical romances. My love for historicals will never cease. 

And this post by Jenny Crusie made me happy this morning. 

I think that's it. More later.

Hey, thanks for the shout-out Emily! Much appreciated. Lots of goodies on tap for this week - including lots of recommendations and a contest or two.

Emily: From me too!! Thanks so much for the pimpage. This genre is near and dear to all our hearts and it's great to see you're another fan of the Western!!

Emily, congrats on the new job. I hope it's one you enjoy. I'm glad to hear that you're climbing out of the mud hole. Trying to write while job hunting would be tough. Here's hoping things settle down and you're able to spend time with your characters soon.
