Still alive! (Pics to prove it...)

I took a little blogging vacation because we were on vacation! My husband gets two weeks of vacation each summer. We went to Beach Camp (awesome), Legoland (fun), I led two writing workshops, and then did some fun, small things close to home (movies, NickelNickel, etc.) Now I'm in the midst of VBS.

I hope you're all having a wonderful summer! I'll leave you with a few photos I've taken.

Typeset Edits, Vacation, and Stuff

Hey there! Sorry that I've been MIA for a while now. My husband has his vacation time right now so we've been out and about. When I'm home, I've been working on the typeset edits for Book 2 in my fantasy series. (Typeset edits mean checking to see if the layout for the actual book looks right. It's the last chance to correct any mistakes before it goes to press.) I'll upload some pics soon from our vacation time. In the meantime, I wish you happy reading!

TGIF - Familiar Books

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads!

This Friday's Question:

Comfort Reads: Which books do you go to for comfort & familiarity?  
Is there a type of book you seek out when you're needing that extra bit of comfort in your life?

I read those books that I've had for a long time: PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Jane Austen, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by L.M. Montgomery, anything written by Robin Jones Gunn. All of these books make me feel better. I feel like I've returned to old friends when I re-read these books. <3

What do you read?
