See Ya Later, Skeeter

Well, good morning. Tons of stuff going on in my little world and I thought I'd share before I took off for the summer.

As most of you know, we bought a new house. We're closing on it this Friday and then I will begin the frenzy of packing and moving. Hence, Piedmont Writer will be going dark, quite possibly for the remainder of the summer. Between the move, and then the clean and repaint the old house, I've also thrown three weeks at the beach into the mix so...it just seems like it would be wise to call it a day over here.

However, because I've republished my novel, REMEMBERING YOU under the name of Robynne Rand, I decided to start up a blog under that name.




You can find that one here.  The picture is one I found on the Commons. It's a view from the fire tower in Tiverton, where I used to live in Rhode Island. That's Mount Hope Bridge in the background.

Anyway, I post over there on Thursday, just Thursday. It's very quiet, and exceedingly laid back. I think it's my alter ego, you know the part of me that isn't going eight million miles an hour in fourteen different directions. I'd love it if you could take a swing by. I'll be posting until the computer moves from one house to the other (have to rewire the office).

I'm also still posting on my Regency website Anne Gallagher. So if you know anyone who's interested in reading about Regency romance, by all means send them over. I post there only on Sunday.

I'm getting into the S-L-O-W blogger manifesto. Anne R. Allen has finally convinced me that it's okay to relax in the blogosphere. Of course that doesn't help with the promotion and marketing. Because I did so quietly in the beginning, it seems now I need to tweak things a bit, so I've been doing a little bit more of that lately. Coming up with pitches, and blurbs, and press releases is just really time consuming. Not to mention scouring the internet for book reviewers.

If any of you would like to review any of my books, by all means, give me a shout. I'd be happy to send you a copy. shoreroadpublishing at gmail dot com.

Anyway, that's what I'm doing, that's where I am and when. I'm not going to be back at Piedmont until the Monster starts school again.

Have a great summer everyone! I'll miss you.

Thanks everyone. It's going to be crazy nuts for the rest of the summer. Moving, cleaning, building a fence, ripping up carpet, putting down wood floors. I'm exhauted just thinking about it.

Congrats on the new house! Moving can be stressful, but it's so much fun to settle in to a new home and make it 'you'. Have fun in the process :)

Thanks. I will need some luck, and energy, and patience.

I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've just been crazed lately.

My goodness, you're busy! All that and moving house, too. Have a fantastic summer, Anne... we'll miss you!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Have a great summer, Anne. I'm slowing down, too. There's nothing wrong with that.

Wow, you are busy with all your blogs. I tried having two (I shared one with two other bloggers), but it was too much work.

Al said...

Have a great break!

Patti said...

Okay, moving, painting, 3 weeks at the beach. And blogging everywhere. That sounds crazy busy. Hope you can relax somewhere in there. Have a great rest of your summer.
