To make a long story short, the bit of code that made my book reviews magically appear in your inboxes broke some time ago, and I only just recently (a) figured that out and even more recently (b) figured out how to fix it. I think. I hope. Well, this is where we find out.

I’m mystified as to what’s causing the glitch, and tech support for MailChimp is reduced over Easter weekend so I don’t expect to hear back from them right away. Please bear with me while I investigate.… >> Read more

A great big thank you to the fabulous Vivienne of Thrifted Shift for giving my blog the Liebster Award, which is for blogs with less than 200 followers. In turn I’d like to pass it along to:
