For the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of writing for this blog. I’ve highlighted some of the wonderful books by our authors. The fun in that is both getting to read a wide range of great books as well as pointing to my colleagues and (virtually) yelling about how awesome they are.
And they really, really are.
Not only have I interacted online with these fabulous folks, I’ve also met some in person and even interviewed them for my podcast. It’s been a wild and fun ride.
It’s time for me to move on. This was a mutually agreed-upon parting. I have a new job, and I’m in school as well. Supposed Crimes is doing some new and exciting things, much more interesting than my occasional blog post and social media images.
It wasn’t hard to discuss an end to my time in marketing. We knew it was time, and it feels good to be leaving with our relationship intact and healthy. Times change; people change; and sometimes we all need to move on.
What’s harder is my relationship with my muse.
Between COVID and my new job, writing has taken a back seat. I want to write, but there never seems to be enough time or I don’t have the energy or I’m writing papers for school instead.
Gotta be honest, I miss it.
But you know what? It’ll be there when I’m ready to go back to it. School and parenting teenagers and a stressful job won’t last forever.
For now, I’m content to leave you with the parting wisdom of Bill and Ted: Be excellent to each other.
Happy reading and much love to you all,
