I haven't been around much on LJ. It's still hard to do as much as I used to, and I had to set some priorities. I haven't forgotten everyone. I wish I was able to participate in picowrimo this year but maybe next year. I might drop by before it ends to say hi to everyone.
I'm recovering nicely, getting more exercise in every day and adjusting to the new diet. That's probably the hardest part :)
The book is going well. Everything is done, the cover was finalized last week and the release date is December 1st! I'm mildly excited :)
