Monday Mayhem – Remember me?

Posted on Jun 9, 2014 by Margaret Ethridge   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

I know I’ve been MIA lately. I’m sorry. My life as been in sort of a state of flux lately. I’ve left the company where I’ve worked for the last twelve years and started a new job. I’ve also been battling strep, staph, and a good, old-fashioned sinus headache. So yeah, I’ve been kind of a mess.

But I’m better now.

The decision to change jobs took a huge weight of my shoulders. And even though I’m having to deal with the inherent awkwardness of being the new girl who knows nothing, I’m a much happier person.

So far, 2014 has been all about cutting myself some slack and making necessary changes. To be honest, I’ve been doing a good bit of this:

Other than the release of boxed sets, I don’t really have anything new coming on the writing front. That’s something I hope to remedy in the coming months. Spring Chickens is all mine again. I plan to revamp it a bit and re-release it later in the year. Then, I think I want to make another run at Containment.

Of course, Miss Maggie is seeing all sorts of action – the tramp. It’s all about striking when the iron is hot in this business, and the steamy stuff is hotter than ever right now. There’s a new release from Harlequin just last week (The Last First Date), an upcoming boxed set from TMP (including Seducing Steve!), and a smoking hot story for the born before 1970 crowd (Three Little Words) coming from Kensington/Lyrical.

Sooooo, that’s what’s new with me. Thanks for your support and patience. I hope you know how much I appreciate you!

Tell me, what are the haps by you?

    I can tell your mood has improved and it’s wonderful to see! When you’re happy, I’m happy! πŸ™‚ Best of luck with the new job, the writing, and the upcoming releases!

    School’s almost out for the summer and I’m so ready for a little break. I hope to write more in the coming months and finally finish some projects that have been hanging over my head. My plot bunnies are going stir crazy!

    Wishing you a fantastic week! xoxo

    You have been missed! Glad you’re feeling better. I’ve been through the “quitting a job because it might be killing you” thing, it’s not fun, but it makes you take care of YOU. Don’t worry about the awkwardness, it just proves your interested and capable of learning new things!

    The “haps” with me is caring for a friend while she was dying. Though blissfully short (a month from diagnosis to the end) still a hard time. And right at the end was my 25th wedding anniversary. We still have not celebrated, although we’re mostly just thankful that we’re still here.

    Take care of you my friend and I look forward to hearing whatever life brings you next.
