Starting fresh and staying organized

Well hello new blog, it's nice to meet you! Today when I sat down at my computer, I had no inclinations to start (another) blog. It sort of happened. Honestly, it was a bit of an accident. A happy, happy accident driven by my obsessive need to organize things based on their relevancy. A few hours ago, I was attempting to organize my other blog and was beginning to get a headache because there was such a mishmash of things cluttering the pages. My posts had no coherency; they jumped around from release day or blog tour posts, to posts about my anxiety, or lists of my favorite things. Sure, they were tagged into categories that were easy to sort through, but seriously. There was no order.

This blog is my fresh start. I'll probably still dip into posts where I talk about writing, but I want my other blog to be my "publishing only" blog, where I'll post official news about the books I'm putting out into the world. This place will be "all the rest." Posts about my anxiety, about my new job, about my upstairs neighbor's Techno Tuesday's, and my weird habit of wanting to throw everything out and start from scratch. (More on that later.)

I'm hoping that having a separate blog will help me draw a clean line between my work life and my personal life. It should help me stay organized, and god knows I need to stay organized. Of course, those who follow me that don't care about all of the things happening my personal life and only care about what/when/why I'm publishing won't have to read content they don't want anything to do with, while those who are interested in my day-to-day life can still follow along. It's a win-win for all involved, don't you think?

So, welcome to my new blog. I'll be trying to produce new (and, ideally, interesting) content often, so stay tuned. And if you are here by mistake and are looking for lists of my books, head on over to and you'll find what you're looking for there. Thanks for stopping by and being patient while I get this blog up and running. :)
