Taking a Hiatus

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on July 27, 2018

I may be taking a hiatus from this site for the next few months out of necessity. First, I’ve received my blog schedule for Trimmed to Death. This will be a Great Escapes Virtual Book Tour from Sept. 26 – Oct. 5. I am busy writing all the guest posts and interviews for this online tour as well as some other guest spots coming up around my release dates. You can follow my appearances at https://nancyjcohen.com/appearances/

Bouchercon 2018 mystery writers’ conference runs Sept. 6 – 9 in St. Petersburg. This involves more prep time. Also in September, I have a second bridal shower, several family birthdays, my new book release, and the Jewish holidays.

And then there’s the wedding. Recently I accompanied our daughter to the bridal salon where she had a fitting. Her dress is even more beautiful than I remember. We saw her new house, celebrated our son’s birthday, and met our prospective in-laws for a meal. Now we are home and excited about the bridal shower I’m hosting a week from tomorrow. This involves centerpieces, a cake, party favors, coordinating the menu, and having company for the weekend.

Then October is wedding month. After that is the rush toward Thanksgiving, my next book release, and the end of year holidays. Yikes! My heart races at the thought of it all. Meanwhile, our house needs attention, and I haven’t even started on our get-rid-of list.

Am I writing anything new? Not at the moment. Who has time? I’m working on blogs and marketing for these upcoming releases. I hope you’ll help get the word out once I announce the debuts. Save these dates:

August 8 is Hair Brained Large Print edition

Sept. 25 is Trimmed to Death, #15 in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries

Nov. 12 is Writing the Cozy Mystery: Expanded Second Edition

As things get more hectic, I suspect I’ll be lurking more than posting on social media. You may hear from me if something special happens or if I get an idea for a brilliant post, but otherwise things might be sparse here for a while as I’m occupied elsewhere.

And let me not neglect to thank you for your ongoing support, loyalty, and encouragement. It means a great deal to me. Enjoy the rest of summer!

  1. So, what are you doing in your spare time? Hmmm? Happy Blog, Book Release, Jewish Holidays, and Wedding!

  2. What a busy few months you have coming up. See you at bouchercon. It will be my first time.

  3. Enjoy every moment of these next several busy months!

  4. You’re a smart lady to take time “off” where you can. Lovely family events and holidays are positive but stressors nonetheless. This is something you have control over. Waaaytago!

    I tend to take it easy in the hot Summer months. I come alive during the cooler weather.

    • In the hot summer months, I’m inside in the air-conditioning. That’s more conducive to getting work done for me. In the gorgeous winter months, I want to be outside exploring our parks and botanical gardens.
