Blog Presence Will Be Sporadic for the Forseeable Future

This past week has been pretty damn awful for me. My family got some really terrible news. For the forseeable future, due to the ill health of a family member, our lives are going to be hugely affected.

This means my blog will be too. Reading and blogging just aren't a priority right now. Being with my family is. They need me, and I need them.

I'll still be reading, but not with any resemblance to my normal frequency. I'll review those books, but they are likely to be few and far between. I can't say for definite how long this will be for, but I'd say around six months. I hope you will forgive my blog not being what you're used to. Some things are just a little more important.

For those of you interested, Sex in Teen Lit Month II will still be taking place, but it has been postponed. I don't know exactly when it will be happening again, but I'm hoping for July next year.

On Saturday 28th June, my Mum and I will be taking part in Race for Life. If you feel moved to sponsor us, we would be so grateful. We need to beat that dreadful disease. Thank you.
