I’m Not Dead I Promise: An Apology and a Surprise


So I know I’ve been off the radar lately, and I apologize to my faithful followers for the cricket choir. The excuses for my unexpected hiatus are threefold, and thankfully all positive, if not quite forgivable.

Reprehensible Reason #1: I’ve recently begun working for a publishing firm. Just academic pieces, and no fiction unfortunately, but it’s lovely to keep the lights on (and keep myself well stocked in hair products) while I get that novel written? Which leads me to…

Reprobate Reason #2: When I’m not editing OTHER people’s manuscripts, I’m chipping away at my own at home, excerpts of which hopefully I’ll be able to share with you all soon. But in the meantime…

Downright Naughty Reason #3: I’ve collaborated my love of literature and beauty products to start my own literary perfume line!┬áNovel Scents is a lovely little parfumerie that celebrates literature in homemade, high quality solid perfumes. Each scent is inspired by my favorite heroines, including Jane Eyre, Elizabeth Bennet, and Fitzwilliam Darcy!┬áCheck it out on Etsy HERE.

In the meantime, I’m excited to share more adventures about writing, reading, and hair-ing with you in 2014! Thanks for reading ;)
