I know, I know, I have been absent from here for a while. But after the big promotional push for the release of Princess Monsters from A to Z, I kind of crashed. You know the good thing though? Unlike many other times in my life, I recognized this crash as a necessary part of the process and (mostly) embraced it. I think I am finally learning to work within my natural rhythms, which is big progress for me. And part of that rhythm is stepping away from the promotions side and getting back to creating. And although I would love to work on another Princess Monster book right now, that is not where the energy is flowing. So instead I am dusting off an old manuscript that I had almost finished before I started on Princess Monsters. This story is called "One Act of Kindness", and it traces the impact of that one act, which travels through the school, out into the community, and across the world.
