Welcome to May and the last gasp of Spring before summer’s arrival! I hope everyone had a great week of reading, discussing and checking in on not just in on what we are all reading, but each other!
This week and I did not get along! Between the Mississippi river playing havoc with my life, once again, and insomnia leading to a lack of a post Monday (not to mention not being as active with everyone as I would like), it was a rough week! But I recovered and ticked along after Monday.
Once that passed, everything returned to normal and the conversation with everyone was the normal amazingness! I even had Ms. Devri Walls and her publisher drop in on the Venators: Promises Forged review and talk to everyone, and that was EVERYTHING!!! I I can’t thank them enough for taking the time to come and visit my tiny corner of the world.
I hope everyone had a completely kick ass week reading, writing and engaging with the community!
Let’s just remember everyone that if you tell someone to drop dead, they might:
Here is how my week went down:

ohh, sorry to hear that you had insomnia, but I am glad to hear that it is over and let’s hope it won’t come back. You still did a lot this week in my opinion!
Have a lovely week! 🙂
Thank you! I always hate missing a day… especially do to insomnia. It always comes back. Stupid beast. This was just a particularly bad bout of it. But it’s good now. Appreciate the good vibes ????
Insomnia is horrible and tough. You still had a very busy week!
Yes it is! Thank you! 🙂
Hey… you have a family and your music… I had a flooded river and a new part time job to find before I end up on the street so in fairness I had much more time on my hands lol
It seems like you had a really good week like insomnia aside lol! I definitely didn’t have a very productive week but I have to say I didn’t mind taking it slow, I only finished two books lol and Dark Shores was amaziiiiing
And in I’m telling you Dark Shores is gonna kill it
I’ve been ignoring my ARC shelves on NetGalley. It is so bad. GAH!
I did for months while on hiatus. It is possible to dig out and earn trust back. It takes time but it can be done if you want to do it.
