Anita's Attic: A Fond Farewell

This is a difficult post so please bear with me. I’m writing two series now, the highland warriors and the relic seekers, and I've found that it takes a lot of time. More than I have, in fact. I’m not a fast writer, and in addition to writing deadlines that are looming too close, I have a busy family that I'm not giving enough attention. There are two young kids who are very active in school sports, and two dogs who love to get into mischief. And did I mention that time management is not my forte?

So, I've had to make some difficult decisions. I love this blog, and I love these gals, but I’m going to have to step back so I can devote more time to my family and my readers. I've been throwing together meals, neglecting my house, not taking care of my health, and I’m behind on writing.

I hate goodbyes, but while this will be my last regular post for now, in one sense of the word, it really isn't goodbye. The M&M gals and I share an agent, so we’re publishing family and friends. I’ll still visit Mysteries and Margaritas. I’ll even be guest posting from time to time.

So, thank you Liz, Kari, Cassy, and Barbie for allowing me to be part of M&M. You are the best! And to the followers of the blog, thanks for your support. Happy writing and reading to you all and I'll see you around!

Anita it has been a pleasure blogging with you!! I'm glad you will still pay us visits from time to time.

Best of luck with both of your series and with the continued balance of it all. You will do GREAT!!

We are for sure a publishing family and you know you've got 4 M&M cheerleaders ready and waiting!

Smooches & Hugs and I hope we'll see you at a conference sometime!!

It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to you, Anita, but I really do know the pressure you are under. And I also know that you will never be a stranger here. My sincerest wishes for all the best for you.

We will always be home to you.

Barbie, it's been so great to be with you gals. All of you are wonderful, and I consider you not only blogging buddies, but friends. I will be here close by, also cheering each of you on. I know you all have great things in your future.

Thanks so much, Liz. I already miss not being a regular part of the blog, but I will still be in the sidelines cheering for you and sharing the excitement of your accomplishments, which I know will be many!
