Taking a short blogging break

So sorry about this, but I'm going to take a short break until Sunday. 

As some of you already know, Etopia offered me a publishing deal which I accepted. What I didn't mention (due to being unsure of the contract terms last week) is that the deal is that I split Doorways in two. 

So. Because this might mean a killer deadline at worst and at best a currently uncertain work schedule, I want to get the ball rolling as soon as possible. As a result, I have a considerable amount of work to do before the end of the week. 

I'll share the arrangements with regards to the Paying Forward Awards as soon as I've confirmed with the prize sponsors. 

Thank you all for your support and understanding! 

Lots of love, 

Mish

Huh? You split "Doorways" in two? But it wasn't that long. Where does the first part end? Trying to think of how that is going to work exactly...LOL.

I guess I'll just have to buy it and see!
