First – I hope everyone had a fantabulous Easter (or Sunday).
Second – Don’t forget this is the last week Amber Quill will be around 😢 Be sure to back up your libraries, and grab whatever books you’ve been pining for!
Third – This is the over-sharing part.
So, I’ve been pretty AWOL online since just after Christmas. Without going into details (I’m sick of living it; I won’t subject you to reading it), I took a pretty hard spiral down the rabbit hole of my anxiety and depression. I had (and still have, really) nothing positive to say, and I very strongly do not want to be *that author*, the one who spends all her posts bemoaning her life. (Which isn’t to say I don’t want to know when my friends are struggling. PLEASE let me know when you need support. It’s a total double standard, I know. But I spent nearly 40 years listening to my mom gnash her teeth and wail over the hell that was her life. I can’t bear the thought of being my mother.)
To sum up – I did not die, nor was I abducted by aliens. (Bummer) I have had some contact with folks on my RL page, and got a wonderful card from Crystal Marie that came at the perfect time.
Huge thanks to those who’ve checked in on me – yes, when I go walkabout there’s usually something wrong 😕
So, I’ll be back posting soon, I hope. In the meantime, here’s Easter Eye Candy!
