Happy Sunday, Evs and Nevs!
Whew, sliding this post in under the wire after running all over the city today. I wasn’t literally running, but I did go from one end of Manhattan to the other — and back. All during the course of normal errands. (Like I’ve said, Adulting is hard.) Once I got home and sat down on my bed, I knew I wouldn’t get up again tonight.
So, now that I’m all settled in, I have to start by saying that I’m still floored by how sweet and wonderful you guys are. After going MIA last Sunday, I didn’t really think anyone would notice, and then your lovely comments and your worry for me made my entire week. The good news is that Book 3 is in excellent shape, and we’re heading into the homestretch with editing. I hope Soman sleeps for five days straight after everything’s done; he’s definitely earned it!!
As for me, I’m so lucky that my work more or less requires me to be a professional fangirl. I’ve probably said it before but it’s worth saying again: I’m even luckier to be in the Ever Never Army with all of you!
Giving a special shout-out this week to WeasleyLover007, because I could barely hold my feels when Soman came back from his tour with the incredible gifts she made for me. Check ’em out!
A tiny notebook? Earrings?? An adorable chocolate bar-shaped necklace and a Ravenclaw scarf pendant??? (You remembered my House!! ♥) Everything is hand-crafted and beautiful and SO MUCH. Thank you, thank you, thank you for these wonderfully thoughtful presents! I will treasure them always. I can already tell that the notebook is going to be perfect for jotting down my (many) to-do lists.
As I was saying, though, being a fan is actually a huge part of everything I do, from helping Soman judge contests to weighing in on the new website. Which is going to be gorgeous and amazing, by the way. The entire site is getting a major facelift, and we’re adding new things to make it bigger and better. I’ve been doing my best to represent the fans by suggesting and helping our team design new features that we’ll all love. I can’t wait for you to see everything once the new site goes live! As we move further along I’ll be posting little snippets, but here are a few teasers I can offer you:
First and foremost, a new menu bar! Care to take a crack at guessing what the new things are?
Also, obviously you know what the Reader Gallery is, but what do you think will be in the other link featured below??
And of course, coming to a screen (portable or otherwise) near you…
That’s right: EVERNEVER TV. We’re working on the first few episodes right now, and they’re going to be extra-special. But most importantly, they’re going to be so much fun. For you AND for us!
That’s all I can reveal for now, but I’m already excited to hear your theories, what you hope to see, and what you think so far. Until next week, loves! Here’s your song of the day:
