Taking a Break

June hasn’t been an easy month, suffice it to say. Processing tragedy after tragedy — from the huge to the personal — takes a psychological toll, and I’ve been scraping the bottom of the spoons barrel to have enough focus for work and my fiction writing.

Consequently, I haven’t been reading much. That isn’t to say that there aren’t a lot of fantastic new books out there to read! I may try to write quick, “here are my first impressions and what I’ve heard about this title” reviews for a few new titles to keep things going, but more in-depth reviews are on hold until I get my head back in the game.

Though, speaking of which, I’ve made significant progress on a fiction project that I’d told myself I just wasn’t ready to write, so there’s that. Ten years of false starts and personal growth may yet get me somewhere.
