I'm officially in awe of authors who can balance both writing careers and interactive blogs that feature daily interviews, contests, and other goodies for readers. As I'm prepping for the 2013 release of In the Shadow of Blackbirds, as well as writing my next novel and raising my two kids, I'm finding myself getting buried beneath my multiple duties. I need to take a break from this site.
I won't be running any new posts. I'll reemerge again in time for Halloween to say hello (and to share my cover art when that's available), but I'm sorry to say this will be the last calendar year I'll be running Suburban Vampire.
I started the site nearly 5 1/2 years ago when I was trying to sell a vampire novel set in the suburbs. That particular book never found a publishing home, but my lifelong dream of getting one of my books into print came true this past fall when I sold my YA ghost tale to Amulet Books. I'm thrilled beyond words to be bringing this novel into the world through that particular publisher, and I need to devote a larger percentage of my time to this brand-new adventure.
I'll definitely keep the site live so the archives can be perused, and I'll more than likely keep my Upcoming Vampire Movies & Series page up-to-date.
Thank you so much for following me over the years.
June 12, 2012 update: I'll still be blogging over the summer at my writing website, catwinters.com, and this September I'm launching a brand-new website with other authors of YA and middle-grade historical fiction. More info on that project to follow.
