Lets Chat: It’s been a while…

Good morning my loves,

Okay, so you may (may not) have noticed that I haven’t posted anything regularly this month. I had planned to do this epic year-long indie appreciation thing – which I am still kinda doing by buying books from indie publishers, by indie authors at indie bookshops etc. The posts that I had planned however have, sadly, fallen by the wayside.

There have been a couple of things going on with me in the month of September that I had not foreseen. Hindsight is 20/20 they say isn’t it? Well, there has been a period of particularly poor mental health, work stress (what a shock), I have adopted a little cat named Atticus (who is just the most wonderful thing, and is doing incredible things for my anxiety), university has started again which is always stressful and a myriad of other things which have led me in  some way or another to neglect most leisure activities, never mind my little blog.


While I would love to say that everything is all good. I can’t, not just yet anyway. Things are still unsettled and may be for a little time to come. I am hoping that posting this today will alleviate some of the worry that has built up within me about posting (after not doing so for a while). I have been posting blog tour posts and will continue to do so, but it might be the case that I reduce the number of posts that I plan to go live each month reduce from 8 to 4 (not including blog tours). Again, I’m not going to set things in stone just in case that hikes up my anxiety again. This is going to be a bit of trial and error for a while until I settle into a routine that works for me.

So here’s so the coming months. I have some really exciting blog tours to participate in and I’m looking forward to sharing those with you. In September I am chairing a couple of events at a wonderful literary festival (and I am also in the very *VERY* early discussions about organising a crime festival in Wales, which promises to be exceedingly exciting). So, ONWARDS AND UPWARDS!

Peace and pages

    Sounds like you have a lot of exciting things going on and I am so happy for you and your new kitten, so adorable. Take the time you need to settle and find the balance you need.

    Sorry to hear about all the issues you’re contending with Amy. The last thing you want is to feel guilty about lack of blog activity so your plan to avoid setting goals is a good one.


  3. I missed you. Atticus is the cutest little thing. Sending big love and I hope you’re feeling better soon.
