"I have come BACK from the dead!"

 Okay, so not really the dead...but you get the idea. Because of the whole packing thing, and getting ahead on school assignments - which COMPLETELY backfired thanks to Math - and the apparently wonderful ransoms, I have been released a day early so I can get some things on my blog done before I leave on my very exciting and fun holiday!

 Actually, the only things I need to do on here is thank everyone who sent in ransoms. It wasn't too bad being kidnapped by my own characters, I got TONS of reading done, but it is nice to be back. I did find out that the characters decided I have to read the stories and pick a winner, which is one reason it has been moved to the end of this month. So keep sending stories in! I will read them when I get back and pick a winner! (I've been told the winner is to receive a copy of Abolished Impracticality.) 

 Also, as has likely been assumed, I am going to be enjoying my holiday. So I won't be answering emails unless they are important and I won't be posting. Though when I get back I believe John, Clara, and Sammy will have lots of pictures to share from our trip. 

 When I get back everything will be back to normal around here. I will be answering comments and reading all of your wonderful blogs again. (Part of the whole kidnapping thing was I had limited internet access. And my characters were so busy bickering about ovens and ears none of them remembered to read blogs.)

 I have some character reveals for when I get back too.

 But the biggest thing before I go is I promised to reveal the release date for the second Loyalty book. I've also decided to do the title as well. 

  It would be fun if I was creative and had some fanfare to go with this. But even on my best days I am not overly creative, and my mind has been sucked dry by Math, so this is far from my best day. So the best I can do is to drag it out as long as possible and then do the following.

 The Release Date For Book Two is......

 June 14th!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Surprise? You've probably caught onto my pattern by now. Like I said, not overly creative.)

 Now for the title...............

 There, that was long enough, don't you think?

 Just to be safe.

 The title for the second book in the Loyalty Trilogy is.....

 A Test of Loyalty.


 Okay, so maybe I was locked in that cave too long...

 I shall now be leaving all of you. I have some last minute packing to do and one more book to finish. I shall "see" you all again on April 1st! Have a wonderful Spring Break!
