Today I sold the book that was originally due on the 1st August.

I think that gives you an idea of how much of a hole I've been in...

NOW I have to try and put my life back in order. Lemme know if you want me to start up the blog again, otherwise it may land on the long, long list of things I'm trimming back in my life ;)

Website should be back up soon. Once I have my comp de-virused.

Congratulations on finishing the book and being allowed to leave the cave!

Personally I really enjoy your blog and as an aspiring romance writer find it really useful. You definitely have my vote for the blog staying well out of reach of your pruning shears...


Anna Adams said...

Congrats on selling your new book! I admire you for digging out!

I've been checking the blog, looking forward to a new post. In fact, I'd welcome a post on how you dug out if you decide to keep it!

Hey Trish

Great to see you back... like Anna, I'd welcome a digging out post!


Melissa said...

Yay on the sale!

I enjoy your blog, but maybe just get to it when you can if you have other stuff going on and are feeling overwhelmed!

Michelle Styles said...


And yes please to starting up the blog again.

Welcome back from the cave. We missed you lots. :-)
From the sound of it there were bats and crawly things galore, so please accept a shiny medal for going deeper and finishing the book.

It pains me to say it, but, while I love your blog most ardently, you and your work-life balance have to come first.

On the other hand, I have always found your Tips for Writers on the website SO useful, and am now in desperate need of advice on how to beef up my first pages, so that would be brilliant.
Hope you are taking some pampering time out for yourself now. :-)

Oh hon....SO pleased it's gone through.

What you do with the blog is up to you...I've just missed YOU! :-) Hope I get to see a bit more of you soonish. :-)

Love D

Hello, you!

You are allowed to unbury the house first and take your horse out for a ride, but after that ....

Hey Miss Trish!!!!!!!!!

Congrats on the sale - yayayayayayayaaaayyy!

And soooo nice to see you poking out your head. My your hair is longer, and you are blinking into the sunshine a great deal, but once you find you feet, and your way back, I'd love to see you here only as sporadically as you desire!


Nicola Marsh said...

You have been sorely missed!!!!

Pop in when you can :)

Welcome back, Trish!

We missed you. Congrats on selling the book.

As far as future blogs, I enjoy what you write, but only do what you can. (Like that really makes sense.)

Write your books first, then blog when you have time. What you do is up to you.

I'm so happy you sold your book! I love reading them. Take time for you first, then share with us.

I have always enjoyed your blog. Please keep it up.

Like Donna, I'VE MISSTED YOU!!!! But it's up to you. However, don't even think for one minute you can dodge or hide in that cave cause we'll find you.

Hugs.....miss you lots!
