In Which Kellyn Rests

When you read that title, you probably went, “Oh, no! Kellyn’s going on [yet another] hiatus!” You’re probably in a state of near-panic, right? Well, aren’t you? Eesh. I can’t believe it makes no difference to you. But the real question is, Are you really leaving us?

Well, I am and I ain’t.

I will be slowing down and concentrating on things other than blogging for the next several weeks (perhaps even months; I haven’t determined an exact time yet); however, I will be making an effort to post every Monday. Some Mondays I won’t, but I’m going to try to. But Reveries will not be my main focus for this period of time.

Why am I on semi-hiatus? I actually have some pretty good reasons. Continue reading

Announcing the New and PERFECT Blog Schedule + Merry Belated Christmas

As you can see from the title, today we will be announcing not the New and Improved Blog Schedule, but the New and PERFECT Blog Schedule! 😉

But, Kell, you just did this … like, in September. *glares because we don’t give a fluffy pillow about schedules … or about reading blog posts about schedules, for that matter*

I know, I know! But that one wasn’t working for me! It just wasn’t. And what do we do when we’re a perfectionist and whatever it is that we’re using isn’t working for us? That’s right! We throw it away!

WE MEET AGAIN!!!! (somebody tell we you still remember the infamous we?)

On Sprinters, Elections, and NaNo

First, I just want to say I’m amazed by the amount of support I got when publishing The Lady of the Vineyard. Thank you all a million times! I hope I’ll be there for you in the same way if you ever publish (or when you do again).

Okay now … let’s do ’em in random order.

Elections:

election-day-_2

As you may have noticed, there’s a new page on Reveries. This is the page for Round #2 of Blogger Election Day. I urge you to go to that page immediately and vote! More details will be on the page itself. (Yes, I did just link to it three times!)

Now, for this round, I’m only allowed to give ten reasons why you should elect me as president. As before, you’ll never to go to the Blogger Election Day Page and comment the number that you like … like this: “I like 9/10 of the reasons!”

We’ve finally come to the last day of the blog tour! After this, we’ll be getting back to the normal schedule.

Today’s Posts:

An author and character interview (and bonus book spotlight!) by Morgan Dusky (Studies in Character). It’s always so much fun to do anything with Morgan and her characters, and this was no exception! I also finally got some of the Adele-and-Troy-squabbling out of my head, which is good, because I need to move on to other characters, sadly. 😉

Also, Morgan’s birthday was last Saturday, on release day; I totally forgot to mention that in my post! Oh, well.

A book spotlight by Willowy Whisper (http://willowywhisper.com/). Tastefully done! 🙂

A review by J.C. Buchanan (Beyond the Amethyst). I love seeing reviews of my novels … it gives me a happy feeling inside … and this was no exception!

An author interview by Kate Willis (Once Upon an Ordinary). This one was fun! Kate is always pretty awesome. Which, oddly enough, reminds me that I need to write a review of Austenland. 😄

An author and character interview with Allie Taylor (The Depth of My Faith). It hasn’t come out yet (because it’s also a bonus!), but I’ll try to add the link in later if I can. Also, my ‘aspiring author interview’ can be found here. Allie did it with me a little while back. 🙂

Character Studies ~ Family

image

Well, believe it or not, it’s time for another Character Studies!

A quick refresher: Character Studies is a monthly character interview hosted by Morgan Dusky @Studies in Characters. Morgan’s blog has been taken over by her characters, and these eleven are a lot of fun! You should totally check out her (or rather their!) blog.

I’ll be answering the questions for both Part 1 and Part 2.

Today, Miss Selle will be answering the questions. Do you remember her from The Dressmaker’s Secret? Well, if you don’t, she’s the headmistress of Miss Selle’s Boarding School for Girls, which was founded by her mother. She uses the name ‘Selle’ for credit … it’s actually ‘Jones.’ 🙂

So, the questions! This is gonna be great, because she doesn’t really have that great of a family … or any family at tall, besides her sister.

Introducing Riley and the School-Year Schedule

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of schedules for the ‘new year,’ I’d like you to meet someone. 🙂

006

Isn’t he adorable? Yeah, I know that isn’t the best picture … I took it on the way home from picking him up yesterday!

Yes, we did get him a couple days early … and even then, he was going to be really young. He’ll be seven weeks this Thursday, so he’s really a baby, but he’s awesome and coping so well! Dad thinks he’s going to be super smart. 🙂

So … you’ve had your fun; you’ve met Riley. It’s time to get down to that aforementioned ‘nitty-gritty.’

I’m not actually sure what ‘nitty-gritty’ means. But … it must mean something important. And a little silly. *nods*

Introducing Reveries Reviews

Reveries Reviews

As you may have noticed, there have been a lot of reviews on Reveries recently. As you may or may not know, this was not meant to be a reviewing blog!

Sure, a review a week doesn’t hurt. I’m an author, and introducing you to the books of other authors is a lot of fun for me! But other things were meant to be talked about on this blog, too.

Writing, for one thing … and life … and poetry … and … and puppies. WHERE HAVE ALL THE PUPPIES GONE? LONG TIME PASSING! (points for you if you get the reference … and, no, there will be no prizes for the people with the most points …)

So I intend to move most of my reviews to a new blog I’ve created with Blogger, Reveries Reviews. On this blog, I will also be featuring interviews with authors and other bloggers, cover reveals, guest reviews, and more book-related posts.

(Note: Reveries Reviews has switched from Blogger to WordPress!)

If you want you know more about it, let me know in the comments! 🙂
