Halloween in August

Costco is such a tease. I was making my way toward the pastry section and skidded to a halt when I saw a Halloween display. It’s August 3rd!! And they have Halloween decorations! I got excited for a second, thinking it was almost Halloween, but alas, my favorite holiday is still three months away.


Seeing those unseasonal decorations got me thinking about my blog. My poor, neglected blog. I’ve been ignoring it to focus on editing my Young Adult novel, which is almost done (happy dance!). I figured it was time to post something, even if it’s a short one.

Lucky gal that I am, I had a weekend getaway in Vegas in May and got to see the best musical of all time: Zombie Burlesque. That’s right, there’s a musical about zombies. And it’s magical! I posted an article on Zombie Guide Magazine about my killer experience. Here’s the link: http://www.zombie-guide.com/zombie-burlesque/


While I was ignoring my blog, I found the time to answer twenty “Would You Rather” questions for The Next Best Book Blog. It was nice to take a break from writing my novel to answer questions about writing novels. Good clean fun. Here’s a link to the blog post: http://thenextbestbookblog.blogspot.com/2016/06/j-cornell-michels-would-you-rather.html

Happy news: The Walking Dead trailer for season 7 is finally out! The show comes back October 23rd. I can’t frickin wait! I’ve been dying to find out who Negan killed. My guess is Abraham, but who knows. We’ll find out soon enough! Here’s a link to the season 7 trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmUz88zoIg0

In other news, I’m pregnant!! I’m about five months along now, which is another reason I’ve been neglecting my blog. Being pregnant makes you exhausted. During my first trimester, I felt like it was three in the morning all day long. It sucked big time. But things are better now that I’m in my second trimester. Still, this is how I feel most of the time:


That’s all for now. Hopefully it won’t take another six months for me to post again. I’ll definitely write something up for Halloween. I need to think of a costume that will work for a pregnant lady. Wish me luck!
