I know. It’s been a long, LONG time since you last heard from me. I’m not even sure if anyone’s still here to read this post. If you are, thanks for not unfollowing two years ago when I suddenly dropped off the face of the earth and left without much of an explanation.
So. You’re probably wondering what I’ve been doing for the past year and a half. And while the answer is far from simple (part of it comes down to the fact that I’ve been raising two awesome boys who are now 4 and 2), it can be boiled down to this:
I’VE BEEN WRITING.
I finally gave writing a serious try, and now, almost four novels (and some 300k words) later, I’m finally getting ready to self-publish my first paranormal romance in January 2019. You can add TRUST THE WOLF to Goodreads now! It doesn’t have a cover yet but the blurb is there.
The reason I’ve been quiet here and on all my social media accounts is that I’ve created a whole new pen name – and all the things that come with it (I even have Facebook now!). Writing and maintaining a presence online takes a surprising amount of time, and though I’m still reading tons of books (duh), blogging had to be pushed aside to make room for what has now become my favorite hobby/work ever.
If you’re still here, reading this, I’d like to invite you over to my website, where you can meet me – Zoe Ashwood – and maybe follow me on your preferred platform, and possibly give my books a try when they’re out in the world. And if you’re a romance reviewer, I’d be happy to send you an ARC if you’d like.
This site has been a wonderful, wonderful place where I met hundreds of interesting people – you were amazing. You made me understand that I wasn’t weird for sometimes preferring books to people, and I’m certain that without being part of the bookish community through my blog, I never would have gone on to write my first novel. So for that, I thank you. Thank you for all the book recommendations, comments, and general kindness. I’ll miss this place, and I hope you’ll say hi over at Zoe’s.
The site is HERE.
Lots of love,
