No, I have not disappeared off the face of the earth. It's just finals time at the college I attend, and I've been super busy. I'll be back next week, just in time to gear up for the 2011 WordCount Blogathon (http://michellerafter.com/the-2011-wordcount-blogathon)! I'm excited about this opportunity.
In between studying for my finals, I am sneaking in a few seconds here and there to read a couple of pages from Brave Young Knight, so look for a review of this great book sometime soon!
