Bye, Bye, Baby

It's come and gone. The babies in this collective group have all been born and we've sent them on their way. A few of those books already have little siblings out in the world, and all the proud parents here at Book Pregnant are keeping newborn hours while still trying to make sure that the toddler is getting the attention it needs.

To that end, something's gotta go. In real life that might mean yoga classes or one less night at the local watering hole. In writer's life that means the smaller projects take a dip, the little things that we took on and thought, "Yeah. I can do that. Sure."

All the little things add up. Our personal blogs, Twitter accounts and Facebook pages are taking their toll and a lot of us are currently gestating a thing or two for 2015 and 2016. Yes, our families are filling out and demanding that we pay attention to them.

And we must. So we're somewhat sadly closing down the Book Pregnant blog, although it will remain up. We hope that it can continue to provide guidance to other authors out there waiting to drop their firstborn. We know that it was a wonderful outlet for us as we ventured out on our debut journeys.

Thank you from all of us here at Book Pregnant!
