I Will Get Better

Soooo sleepy.

Yep. I know. I have been slow in responding to your blog comments. I have been absent from other people’s blogs. I stink.

I do have an excuse, though. This is my silly season. Not a day has gone by where I haven’t appeared somewhere to talk about Sarah Gives Thanks. It has been fun – really fun in most cases – but exhausting, too, and I’ve found myself with little time for much else.

But I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

When Thursday arrives, I will give thanks – and this year I have A LOT to be thankful for (i.e.: my tolerant family, my fast-selling book, my new blog friendships).

Then I will eat myself silly, go sleepy, and awake maybe 14 hours later – fully refreshed.

Then I will burrow into my WordPress Reader, catch up on your blogs, and return to writing about writing. Yes, I’ll miss the book tour, but it will be replaced with something that I find to be every bit as personally rewarding.

Have a joyous Thanksgiving everyone! ‘Till soon!

  1. Hey, good to hear from you! Sounds like a great thing to be busy with though!

    When you do get a chance to catch up, you don’t want to miss my post from yesterday because you get to watch a video of me singing, oh yes! Here’s a link to it to save you having to try and retrieve it from your reader later – http://vanessa-chapman.com/2012/11/18/this-year-ive-been-an-exhibit-in-a-gallery-and-so-has-my-patio-furniture/

    (And if you’re reading this Carrie, no, I’m not putting links to my blog on EVERYONE’S posts, just yours and Mike’s…for now).

  2. We will forgive you for promoting your most excellent book. Just read it again and loved it all over again. Go, Sarah!

    Go hibernate and celebrate, and we will catch you on the other side. ; )

  3. Having seen Mike in person at one of his promotional events, I can personally vouch for the excellence and energy of his presentational style! Mike, you deserve the one day break, without a doubt. And yes, I am writing for you, not just surfing the web in my office.

  4. I would love to hear one of your speeches, Mike. Don’t worry about blogging, we’ll all still be here. I’m going to give thanks by buying your book. Take care!

  5. You get bonus points for having an old-school typewriter and a Cat in the Hat on your desk. No wonder you’re tired, it sounds like you’ve been on the go nonstop. Happy Turkey Day, Mike—eat lots of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, and enjoy!!

  6. Been an awesome year, Mike! So glad you’re in high demand, knew you would be…I notice your list doesn’t include shopping after Thanksgiving, hehehe!
    Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for giving us Sarah Gives Thanks!
    namaste 😉

  7. In celebration of all this busyness, which is in such a good cause – may your book continue to sell speedily and abundantly! Thanks for touching in and giving us the chance to send some appreciative energetic vibes your way.

  8. This is a great reason for being absent. I’m so inspired by all this activity surrounding your book! .Here’s to more success Mike! Take your sweet time getting to other blogs.

  9. Just make sure your next best-selling book takes place in an alternate season, so you’re not on back-to-back holiday book tours!

    Gobble, gobble!

    1. I’m hoping I can sell a book that is NOT seasonal. It’ll allow me to space out my appearances and keep me from collapsing every night.

      Have a great Thanksgiving, Cathy! Don’t forget to mix Marshmallow Fluff into the sweet potatoes!

      1. Hmmmmmmmmm November is holiday free…. Well, there’s a local religious holiday tomorrow about the young virgin Mary, it’s called “Esodia”. So you can wish me to that! 🙂

    1. I never need a break from your blog. Just a break in general.

      Sarah did very well, I’m pleased to say. Even the publisher wasn’t prepared for the number of backorders. So I am thankful indeed!

      I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday, Erin!
