I'm Leaving You

There is no other way to tell you this, and I wish it could be otherwise, but, I’m leaving you. It’s not you, it’s me. I need a break.

Fear not! I’m only going on holidays, and in two short weeks, I will be back – tanned, rejuvenated, and with only minor, repairable damage done to my liver.

While I am in Portugal, I will be handing my blog over to a series of superb guest posters. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but I will say that you are in for a treat.

Until then, you can read my regular column over at IndieReader.com which has just been posted. It’s called The Only Gatekeepers Readers Need.

As the waves lap playfully at my ankles, and I signal for another large drink with a small umbrellas, all these guest posts will be automatically appear in my absence, and at some point my August sales report will pop up.

My internet access will be intermittent, unlike my desire to stay the hell away from it. If you send me something, it could be some time before I respond. I also won’t be around to join in the comments, so if you wanted to start a literary feud with me, now is the perfect time.

I’ll see you in a couple of weeks!

  1. Well have fun! And… what were those lyrics to the song I heard in Zumba yesterday….

    Something about being knee deep in the water, and his only worry was “will the tide reach my chair”…

      1. Dave, your wedding… or another wedding? If you’re slipping off to get married, I want to congratulate you!

        There’s nothing in nature as good for the soul as the seashore. Have a wonderful time.

  2. Your headline worried me! Thank God it’s just a vacation. You’ll be missed, but I hope you get plenty of rest and relaxation. Intermittent Internet might be best. It IS hard to turn it off. Turning off the mind from thoughts of your novels, readers, and blogs, well, that’s another thing entirely. : )

  3. Have the best time ever! And may you come back with your mind filled with 100 short stories to write from inspiration 🙂
