I've been quiet lately. In between a little traveling stint to Cape Town and finally finishing my second novel, The Other Woman, completing my journalism degree and working myself silly at the art gallery - I really haven't had any time or patience for blogging.
It's a hard thing to keep up on such a regular basis and to be honest I don't know how many of you do it! Recently I've noticed how much I'm drifting away from blogging and getting less and less interested in it. There's just so much else going on... but I do love it. I love connecting with all of you from around the globe. I love sharing things that I've tasted, read, watched or experienced with you. I love reading about the things you've tasted, read, watched or experienced so that maybe one day I can try it out for myself!
Blogging is just a magical thing, really.
I wouldn't say I write to the best of my ability here - but that's not really the point for me. My novels are where I write and edit and polish and am incredibly anal about.... (haha), but blogging is just a hobby for me... a hobby that sometimes will take a backseat.
So I am sorry for the absence.
I doubt that I will ever leave blog-land permanently. I love it too much - but sometimes life really is just a bit too hectic to prioritize blogging.
It's kind of cool to come back after a few weeks and share photographs and stories with you all on what has been going on lately... well, those of you that follow me regularly anyway!
I've come back after a few days much needed break and I see that I have a handful of new followers - so welcome to you all and thank you for joining along Bohemian Muses journey! I look forward to keeping in touch with you all and forming intercontinental friendships.
Since it's Sunday and I just got back from my road-trip up to the city.. and since I'm sitting behind my keyboard sipping on a goblet of Inkspot red wine which is far too tasty.. I thought I'd venture back into blog world again. I've got my gorgeous nephew toddling around my feet, he's just started walking which is too cute for words... and I've got a juicy rump steak on the barbecue. I've got my granny arriving from Scotland in plus / minus one hour and a big family evening ahead.
Life is so good... so busy and filled with wonders and possibilities.
Tomorrow is a huge day for me. My second novel will be released - I am so excited that there are no words worthy enough to describe it!
I've decided against publishing chapters onto my blog mainly because that means I'm giving it away for free. Writing, for me, isn't about the money, it's about the passion - BUT, I do want to sell people books to feel like a legitmate author.
But fear not those of you that are based in NYC, Texas, Aussie-land, Canada, India, Indo, Philippians and Europe (I can on my stats where most of my readers are from!) - I'm going to be releasing the novel in E-Book form soon. I don't know if any of you are familiar with E-Books and Kindles and all that jazz..... I'm not... but I got given some good advice while in Cape Town this past weekend. I can't be naive to technology and how the world is evolving. This is how it is going to explode into something great.
So keep in touch - and I'll link you to the E-Book sometime soon (once I've figured it all out.....)
Until tomorrow! (I'll have to post a photo of my book for ya'll to see!)
