Hello, all. :)

I'm not a new member, per se, but I wanted to say hi and I thought this might be the place! It's been at least two years, maybe three, since I left the forum, and after some conversations with the new admin I decided it was time to come back. I'm so excited--I love this place, and I've really missed it all this time. :)

Before I go on, I want to clear up something--yes, I left before because of some developments in leadership, and I am returning because leadership is changing again, but I have nothing but friendship and respect for Lady Elanor. :) She is a godly woman and I don't blame her for any of the hurt or problems that went down. She was doing her best to do what she felt was right, as was I. And she and I have remained good friends with no hard feelings!

So where was I... oh yes. I've been quite busy since I was here last. I have five books published now and am currently having a sixth edited while I work on a novella to be published this fall, so lots of writing! I also moved to the Dallas area, where I live with two roommates and work as a secretary for a screen distributor. I have a great church, and I'm in a committed relationship with a great guy who I adore. So yeah, tons has changed. :) I can't wait to catch up with y'all, and while I probably won't be on a ton, I look forward to being involved where I can!

It's good to be back. :)

You know this all just part of my grand scheme to keep her books in house, right? Because when I see good writers, I, shall we say, keep them. ;)

JK. I'm so excited about this. I've missed hearing about your bookish developments on here, Gracie!!

Note to any of you new people meeting Miss Pennington for the first time:
Read her stuff. I don't even like westerns and I couldn't put down Never and I devour her Firmament series whenever another part comes out. And she makes her books affordable, too, if you'll embrace E-book.
