The Stomach-turning return

I'm still a little shaky, so bear with me. It's been a full year since I've posted for this blog, and well over a years since I have written anything for it. However, I do need to remedy that. I have works in progress. I am working with my publisher. I also have a few things out there for you to read now. All that adds up to me needing to get on the horse and get my name out there.

If you're an author and an introvert like me, you know how difficult that last sentence is. I'd like nothing better than to continue to hide in my room and write only for myself and never see the light of day again. But the fact is, I haven't been writing for myself. I haven't been writing for anyone. If I don't have input from outside, I'm not going to get anywhere.

My stomach is literally tossing while I write this (not a good thing when I had a stomach flu on Wednesday). It is really hard for me. My twitter is going to be a mess and I don't know how active I'm going to be on there. My Facebook activity has been (and will likely continue to be) a lot of Farmville2. However, there should be some blog sharing and shouts out on both.

Bear with me. This is a big scary world you all live in and I'm liking the dark corner I've made for myself. Forgive me if I only peek out once in a while, okay?

And for the first while, I'll be plugging OTHER people's writing. Doesn't that sound good? I thought so too.
