Updates From Rainy-Land

Remember that thing when we would talk about topics other than books? Yeah, dull memory for me too. I thought I would give a “general update,” but then I realized that most of it involves books. But! Not all of it. So here goes: I’ve discovered International Delight Caramel and Chocolate coffee creamer. No, that’s not a paid promo. I just love this stuff. A lot. Too much. In May, I’m going to be in Czech, Austria, Hungary, and Poland. And May...

What was your most popular guest post you contributed to another blog last year?

I didn’t guest post a lot last year. I know, bad Rainy. I have already sent out more this month than all of last year combined, though. So how’s that for making sure I’ll burn out quickly this year? I did contribute a few articles, including re-posts, to Book Daily. This one had the most comments. Thirty-three at last count.
