Hey everyone--it's been too long since I've posted, and I miss you all! (Sadly, still not better! After typing this up and answering tweets, I'll be off to take a nap. A nap! How sad is that?)

Anyway! I've missed all of you, and I'll be contacting the winner of the last contest very soon and will have another one (hopefully!) this week...

In the meantime, I know it's not anywhere close to my usual, but I've missed doing this, and here are a few links I think are worth checking out:

An interesting blog post about why contracted books may be canceled

Writer Beware on the importance of context when it comes to e-book sales (this post as listed as part one, but I haven't seen a part two yet--I'll try to keep my eyes open for it!)

Lisa Schroeder on why "oh well" needs to be part of ever writer's vocabulary -- honest and inspiring!

Finally, from Writer Unboxed, Why We Write -- "I don’t have all the answers, but I can say this: we write because we see and hear people that aren’t there unless we write them down. Because the fun is there, you just have to look for it sometimes." (LOVE this post!)

Thank you all so much for your notes and good thoughts--they mean the world to me!

So good to hear from you but not so good to hear you're still feeling down and out. Keep your head up, though! We're all rooting for you!
