I’m alive — really, I am

If you’re still visiting my blog, I appreciate it. I’ve been absent for so long that I wouldn’t be surprised if all of you had given up on me. Well, I’m still around. There are a lot of things I want to talk about but the best things I’m not sure I can talk about. So, I’ll be asking my editor how much of the editorial process of my next book I can share with you. All I have to say is that I have the BEST editor in the world.

I can’t guarantee how active I’m going to be on the blog. I have grand plans but I also had them last year nand you can see how that turned out. I am committed to hosting several blog tours, with Stacy Hawkins Adams being the first on Friday of this week, so that will happen.  Some big things happened in my life in the last year and I hope to blog my reflections on them.  They include:

  • The Obama Campaign — I don’t even want to think about the number of hours I devoted to it
  • Getting my book in — Oh, the stories I could tell, if only me editor will allow me
  • Tenure – I’m an academic so tenure is an important part of life
  • My long engagement — Yes, a wedding is in the works
  • Recent travels — I’ve fallen in love with cruising
  • Book club visits —  I know they think I’ve forgotten them, but I haven’t

If you’re still hanging around, please give a shout out so I’ll know you’re here.

I’m back, for good this time.

  1. Hey Angela! I knew you’d resurface when time permitted. Sounds like you’ve been very busy and very blessed.

    Yes, let’s talk Obama campaigning. I too was very active in that. An engagement and a wedding in the works? CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Hope the tenure process has been a positive one for you.

    Of course, writing. I hope your editor will allow you to share because I learn so much from your insights.

    Crusing? Haven’t done one yet but I’m still hoping to make the RSJ 2010 cruise, although I haven’t made a payment in a while.

  2. Hey Angela,

    Glad to see you’re back in action. Can’t wait to hear more details! Congratulations on your engagement and tenure process!

  3. Glad to see you online again. We missed you. Look forward to your post. Maybe try something once a week or once a month, that way the readers know when to stop by.

  4. Hi Angela!

    Glad to see that you are back. Congratulations with everything! You have had a lot going on. Your absence is certainly understandable 🙂

  5. Glad to know all is well. Can’t wait to hear about the book, but really interested in tenure. I’m up next year!!!!

  6. Thanks for the welcome back, ladies! I’m blessed that you all are still checking me out. Stacy’s blog tour will be up tomorrow and then we’ll see how it goes. LaShaunda, I think you’re right. I’m going to have to start with an achievable goal. One week or one month is doable.

    Beronda, I’d definitely going to blog about the tenure process, but it may not be until 4/15! That’s when the letter from the provost is due. Nothing is final until then.

    Patricia, I’m planning to go on the 2010 RSJ cruise, too. I’ve gone on one for the past two years in December. It’s getting to be a habit.

    Veronica, Rosalind and Rhonda, I hope my editor is okay with me spilling the beans. It’s some story, even if it does make me look bad–very bad. 🙂

  7. Hey Angela, I’m glad you’ve had a lot of good things happening for you. I’m so happy to hear that you are still around and well.

    Welcome back and I can’t wait to read what you have to share.

  8. Hi Angela,

    Glad you are back. I knew you would be. You are just a busy lady and that means you get things done.

    I’m looking forward to seeing (hearing) what you have going on.
