I was abducted by aliens

While that is a possible explanation for my lack of 'celebrate' posts over the past few weeks or so, it isn't what happened. I've just been busy. Life gets like that sometimes, and although I feel like the last few weeks passed so quickly they might not have even occurred, alien abduction was not the cause.

It was with great pleasure that I noted, only this morning, that one of our celebrate hosts, Lexa, posted on her blog for the first time in four months. So that's what I'm celebrating this morning. Welcome back Lexa, and all the best with your continued recovery.

I also have a new book out. My fifth novel Love Sick Love, was released on Wednesday, and I have already reached out to some of you to ask for help with promoting it. May I also ask now if any of you would be interested in hosting me with a post about my novel, or an interview? Let me know if you'd like to help.

Finally, this week, just last night in fact, I attended an historic event. The first ever rugby league test match to be played in the Northern Territory. Australia defeated Samoa in the quarter final of the World Cup and I was there to see it. Big smile.

How's your week been? Any 'loss of time' experiences* with aliens or otherwise? 

* no offence intended to Lexa btw

    1. Most of us do have a lot of competition for our time.

    1. Ah life...according to Simple Plan, life is what happens while you're busy making your excuses. Wise words, but perhaps not entirely applicable here.

  3. I do well and them life happens and I'm back to flaking out on the writerly stuff. I'm trying to adopt a more "business" attitude.

    I'd happily give you a shout out for your new release. Love the title!! Shoot me an email (eseckman(at)ymail(dot)com and we'll figure something out. Best of luck!!

    1. I could only take a 'business' attitude to writing if writing was my business, I mean my only business. I can manage it for short bursts when I have a new book out, but other than that I just do it when I can, when I feel like it. Re your offered shout out for LSL, thank you. I'll be in touch.
