Phew!

Between arriving here in England, my husband going TDY a week and a half later, leaving me to deal with all of the paperwork, inspections and work in general that comes with registering two cars, movers bringing my things, picking my son up at Heathrow, picking our caique up from the breeder, and more, I have not really had time to focus on genealogy.

Also taking precedence is the publication of my dark urban fantasy vampire novella, Dead Wrong (ebook went live on the publisher's site today and is on sale for a nice discount!  It can also be downloaded at Amazon; paperback edition will be available later this week).  Do know that this is not for the faint of heart - there is not much violence, but there is a tiny bit of erotica with strong language.

I actually am working on some urban fantasy books with a genealogical twist, but those will come later.  For now, my life has revolved around settling in to my flat and learning how to live life alone in a new country with my husband in yet another country.  He had been here for 4 months already, and I would have relied upon him to show me around, and act as my navigator as I learned how to drive here.  No such luck.  ;)

Just as I got quite comfortable with being here in England and settled into a routine, including the addition of our new bird and my son, I had to focus on promoting my book.

Oh my goodness, genealogy would be a welcome respite from the constant pace of life right now!  I certainly do have posts in mind.  I will apologize in advance that none of them have any exciting British genealogical information yet, but there is this gorgeous cemetery at this lovely church down the street that I am just "dying" to visit.  Nobody to whom I am related would be buried there, but just to see British gravestones and start getting a feel for how they do things here would be a nice thing to do, don't you think?
