*Sweeps away tumbleweeds*
Howdy, all! I know It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I was swallowed by the Blog Slayer – also known as Summer Vacation (yup, it’s summer on my little island.) When I’m not driving the kiddos to piano, violin, drum, futsal or hiphop dance class, the little darlings have me corralled in Jenga blocks and Monopoly plastic hotels. But before my internment in Board Game Land, we did manage to do some travelling.
We ate our way through Europe (Paris, Normandy, Nice, Eze, Monaco, Barcelona, Madrid, Venice, Florence, Naples, and *pant* *pant* Rome!) and showed the kids some of the settings in Before Ever After. (I’ve posted TONS of photos from the trip on Facebook if you’re interested in pasta/pizza/gelato-hopping with me. Ten bonus points if you can recognize the places from the book and a gazillion points to Gryffindor if you can find Max’s house in Herculaneum )
Here are some of the…um…highlights from the trip…
And for dessert…
So you see, I’ve been really, er, busy. If you need me, I’ll be on the stepper.. for the rest of my life. I hope you forgive me for my long absence and accept my pizza peace offering. But if you need a little more convincing, I come bearing FREE BOOKS…
WIN A COPY OF BEFORE EVER AFTER ON GOODREADS!
(Psst…the US TRADE PAPER BACK EDITION of Before Ever After will be released on May 29!)
And if free books still aren’t enough to do the trick, I’m hoping this next offering will win me a full pardon. Try not to laugh too loud.
I present to you…me…in all my Cleopatra splendor for Mega Magazine’s Twenty Most Beautiful edition (the theme was gold and royalty)… *dies*
You can also find me in Town and Country (Philippine edition) this May but I think I’ll keep that photo under wraps. For now. I’ve sacrificed enough dignity for one day.
