Hello USA and Xpresso Tour Unleashed


I'm back and I'm late with my first post since taking a break. This is going to be short and somewhat jet-lagged, but at least I found the keyboard and was able to turn on the computer.




News of the Day:


Double Negative is on Tour, starting today.

Just turned in my first line edits for Sudden Secrets to Evernight Teen. Book due out this month.

Burma is the colonial name for Myanmar, so I'm officially switching to Myanmar since I now know the people prefer it.


I have my A to Z Blogging Challenge theme and just have to write the posts, so hope I can post 2015's Survivor Badge after April.

Great to be back. Will be around to say hi to everyone ASAP!

  2. I KNOW you had a fabulous time, what an incredible place to visit. And now, you're already chomping at the bit to get back into promoting your books and working on another. I don't know how you do it!

  10. Welcome back. And yeah, what to call that country is a pretty sticky situation. The ones in power who destroyed the pro-democracy "rebels" changed it to Myanmar, even though the rest of the world still refers to it as Burma.

    1. I wonder how Obama faired in his meeting with The Lady? We were in Yangon the same day. I didn't see anything that signaled his visit.

    I still call it Burma too, but I'm not a fan of change ;)

  29. Lee,

    Welcome back, and thanks for stopping by my blog upon your return! Yes, I've been busy traveling, too.

    And I may just do the AZ this year. I have a perfect theme, easy-peasy...now to write the posts. The past two years have not worked out for me to participate. Third time's the charm, right?

    Congrats on your book! Let me know further details...I'd be glad to help.

    Take care,
    Mike
