Oh, I haven’t blogged in so long.

Want to know why?  If you know the David Bowie song, I’ve been going through some “Changes….Ch Ch Changes…”  Not just the new look of my website, which I hope you like.  I’ve gone through some other big transitions.

Over the last few months I’ve made a major shift in my career and my life’s priorities.  I left my job of seventeen years…that’s a really long time, when you think about it.

I’ve decided to focus on four things:

1)    Family:  There is nothing more important.  I want to spend a TON more time with my kids, husband, parent and even in-laws.  Seriously, nothing is more important.

2)     Writing/Publishing:   It’s what I love to do.  My next book (Title TBD very soon) is coming out from Simon & Schuster’s Aladdin M!x in 2013.  And my new totally powerhouse agent, Mandy Hubbard from D4EO Literary Agency, is working with me to pitch my next project.  Not only that, but we are now talking about writing as a career.  YAY!!

3)    My on-line writing program:  I am excited to start an on-line business.  “Your Words on Paper” is a one month program for people who think they want to write a book, and don’t know where to start.  You can learn more about it on my site.  I am recruiting for the pilot right now, so email me cindy@cindycallaghan.com if you’re interested.  The program should launch in the fall.

4)    Animal Welfare:  I’m passionate about pets.  I’ve secured an amazing part-time gig as the Director of Marketing and Public Relations at the Delaware SPCA.  Imagine this:  I go to work and I am greeted (literally “greeted”) by happy dogs, puppies, cats and ktttens.  It’s kinda different than the welcome I would get from Corporate America….lots more wagging!!

I feel really good about this new direction.   So, forgive the radio silence while I’ve been working this out.  And stay tuned, because I should have lots of exciting stuff coming up soon.

Thanks faithful readers, Cindy
