Hello everyone! I know I haven't posted since the end of December. I've been having some issues and had to take a hard look at my blog and schedule.
For health reasons and other concerns I have taken a much needed break and I also work during the winter and didn't have the energy to do both. It did come about rather unexpectedly, but I think it's time to take a step back.
In good conscience I cannot expect publishers and publicists to count on me to put out reviews every month when I'm not sure if I will be able to do so. I have had to move things around, cancel reviews for books I had already received and I don't think that is fair to you the reader and especially to the publicist who sent me the book in the first place.
I think it's time for me to realize that with my health I just cannot blog consistently enough to offer giveaways and things like that. That's not say that I won't ever post again or offer any giveaways. I just have to get a better balance between life and blogging. I will still post reviews but they may not be the most current books on the market. It just depends on what the publicists I work with have to say after I e-mail them and let them know my circumstances.
It makes me sad that this chapter of my life may be undergoing some drastic changes. As readers, you have been wonderful and I love sharing new books with you. I know that the big draw on this blog is the giveaways. Those are the posts that generate comments etc. etc. But I still enjoy knowing you read my reviews whether you comment on them or not. It has been a privilege and I hope you will understand and accept the changes that have to be made.
Thank-you from the bottom of my heart and I will keep you posted!
