I'm BACK! Sort of...

Not having internet sucks. Seriously. I'm pretty sure I have a problem. My friends live in my computer. When I can't talk to my friends, I sort of have a panic attack. No joke.

Our internet company was supposed to come to our house last week to look at our lines outside and fix them. They called and canceled to this week. I was REALLY happy about that, if you can imagine. Anywho, I think we'll be getting it back today. Hopefully. Please...

So, how is everyone? I swear I've fallen off the face of the blogging world the past 2 weeks. And it sucks. Once we are back online I'll be around to visit you. I miss my friends.

In other news, I had a beta reader get back to me today with feedback on my book. She was SO sweet. I love her. She freaking rocks! And she liked it!! :D :D :D SCORE! I'm still waiting on a few more betas, so I'll start my revisions when I hear from them.

I've been torn between starting three different books. I have to write something while I'm editing another one, but I can't decide which one to write. Gah!! Dystopian, Paranormal, Contemporary fantasy... Hmmm... What to choose?

I finished DIVERGENT by Veronice Roth. LOVED! Read it. Now.

Anyway. How are you guys? Seriously. What's going on? Have I missed any good news, or fun things that have happened? Spill it! :D

I couldn't imagine! I would be in H-E-double hockey sticks without the internet! Welcome back!

And now you get to join in the wait until May for the next Divergent book :)

Does life really exist outside the internet???? jk. You should've come to the RWA conference with us in the mean time. You live in Utah, no? It rocked.

Jessie Humphries said...

Oh...and I vote for contemporary fantasy. I think that is the most marketable right now. Just sayin.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Jessie, I do live in Utah! ;) I couldn't make it to RWA. I'll be at LTUE in February though! :D

Being without the internet is a horror story I don't want to live. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Cynthia Lee said...

Nice to have you back! You haven't missed anything in my corner of the blogosphere.

It's been a good but kinda boring couple of weeks.

Cortney said...

It's funny how much we rely on the internet now! And hooray for Divergent, it's on my TBR! Glad you loved it.

Patti said...

I've heard such great things about Divergent, I totally need to read it.

Mel Fowler said...

You should start a contemporary fantasy, there are a lot of paranormal, and dystopian books right now. Try something different.

Nothing new here, I changed my blog backround, but that's about it :)

oh and I think I might get into twitter...we shall see how much time I have though.

Ruth Josse said...

I've missed you! Not that I've been around much either. My husband has been home a lot lately and I try and not get on the computer too much. And I feel like my life has been taken over by a certain two year old. He's very busy.

So glad you loved Divergent! I did as well.

Meredith said...

Ugh, not having Internet would be so awful! I've got my fingers crossed you can get it fixed today. Good luck with revisions!

Renee Collins said...

Ugh, internet troubles are the WORST. The web is like a lifeline! Hope your problems get fixed soon!

Also . . .this beta reader of yours sounds fantastic! ;)

Angie Cothran said...

Positive beta reads are the BEST! I love that you can bounce from genre to genre like that. That is a sure sign of a creative mind.

Jenny S. Morris said...

Not having the internet would suck! Yay, for you beta like your book.

As for what to write next, I usually listen and see who's talking the loudest in my head. LOL. Or, as I'm going about my daily life, what things I see, that seem to speak to a certian book.

Abby said...

Internet people can be such a pain. Hope they have things up and rolling again for you soon. When you get back on - come over and check out my new contest! Yep - that's whats big in the blogosphere right now. Ok- maybe not, but lets pretend. :)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I have two different small spats of being without my computer in the last few months. It is lonesome.

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

I hate it when my internet is out.

Jolene Perry said...

I think I just filled you in with my email ;D

My phone died for like four hours this morning, and it made me a little nuts until I could get home and charge it up.

Funny.

Sarah Pearson said...

Aww Chantele we miss you too. Hope it all gets sorted soon.

Jennifer Groepl said...

Welcome back! I loved Veronica Roth's Divergent too.

Stephanie McGee said...

Hope you got your internet back! I'm just working away trying to finish my first draft of the current WiP.

Katie Dodge said...

So glad your back! And I'm LOVIN' your book so far. I don't know how you have SO many book ideas at once! You're amazing! :)

Alison Miller said...

Internet issues are horrible! But what a great chance to catch up on reading! Divergent was AWESOME!

Glad you're back. :)

Stacy Henrie said...

Hope your Internet is working again soon! Such a great feeling when a beta reader likes/gets your book - congrats.

Candice said...

I totally get the panic over not having internet. Glad you're back online!

Kasie West said...

Life without internet??? Hmmm, I don't think I can even imagine that. Does life exist without internet? :)

Melissa Sarno said...

Wow, choosing between starting 3 different books? You're lucky you have so many ideas! Good luck with your internet issues.

Brooke R. Busse said...

Go with the contemporary fantasy! That way I'll know it's a real genre...

I recently entered a short story contest. Links on my blog. Otherwise things have been pretty mellow for me Internet/writing wise.
