I Love Writing These Posts

It's been over a month since my last blog post, so I'm not even going to PRETEND that I have any fantasies of going back to being a regular blogger. I AM SPONTANEOUS YOU CAN'T STOP ME.

Honestly though, I probably would have let my blogging absence continue, if not for this woman. This woman RIGHT HERE.

See, this is Renee Collins. Renee is one of the first Utah Writer Friends I made, and she is everything you could possibly want in a writer-friend -- spunky and snarky and truthful and supportive and able to say the hard things without crushing your soul. Plus, she writes the most fantastically creative books -- about magic mythological bones and Western worlds and wonderfully sassy girls.

And now, because the world finally realized that Renee Collins is synonymous with AMAZING, this happened:

*muppet flail so hard my arms fall off*

YOU ALL GET TO READ RELIC SOON, GUYS. And I cannot even BEGIN to describe how unbelievably breathtaking this book is. I mean, it's a MAGICAL WESTERN. Let that sink in. MAGICAL. WESTERN.

Renee, thank you for being one of those rare, wonderful people who lights up a room just by giggling. I am so, so thrilled that Maggie gets to tell her story to the world, and I cannot WAIT to publicize this so hard the world shakes. This book is beautiful, and so are you!

Sara, you made me cry. Thanks a lot.

Seriously though, THANK YOU! *huge, overbearing hug* You are so awesome. I'm so very glad that we're friends! Truly! Thank you for the support through highs and lows, for the laughs, and for all the help you've given me. YOU. ROCK.
