|A few months pre-published|
This is the blog post that almost wasn’t. Between complete indecisiveness on my part over the topic, and two weeks of spotty to now no Internet service, I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. (Thank goodness for coffee shops and Wi-Fi!) Being only partially connected these past two weeks reminds me there was once a time when I didn’t know the charms of the World Wide Web. It’s a distant memory, hazy and surreal.
I feel much the same about Lady Scribes. I can barely remember a time when it wasn’t part of my life. Therefore, it’s a bittersweet moment for me announcing the end of such a wonderful time. When we first started the blog, most of us were unpublished authors with high-hopes of realizing our dreams. What a joy it is to say that has come true for all the original members! It is also great to say the newer authors who’ve spent time as a Lady Scribe are busier than ever writing new books and connecting with readers in different ways. It wasn’t easy, but those of us remaining decided it was time to close the blog. What’s Up, Wednesday next week will be our last day.
There is a saying that all good things must end. I’m not sure I agree with that sentiment. The best things I’ve gained from the blog remain long after my days of blogging are done: the wonderful friendships I’ve made with readers and my fellow Lady Scribes, and a cache of good memories. I had a lot of fun looking back through the archives to choose my favorite blog posts for today. I hope you enjoy the walk down memory lane, too.

Of course, none of the ladies are disappearing off the grid. You’ll still see me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinetrest, and Goodreads. And if any of you bloggers would like my characters or me to make a guest appearance on your blog, we would be thrilled with a capital T!!! (Can you tell I spent the last 24 hours with a group of tween girls?) Feel free to contact me through my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, beginning Monday I’ll put out the call for street team members, and I’m so excited about interacting with the team like I have been with our regular Lady Scribe readers. Y’all are the best! If you are interested in joining my street team, you can send me an email, direct message through FB or Twitter, or look for a link to the sign-up sheet on FB and Twitter Monday, June 23rd.
Have you had a time in your life when you were sad to say goodbye but still excited about what the future held?
