Last week I noticed one of my favorite writers, Karen Ranney, hadn't posted in a couple months. I know in the past she would get busy with her books on deadline and not post for a bit but overall she was pretty consistent with her blog and FB posts so it was odd not seeing her post anything in a while. I even messaged her on FB saying "I hope everything is going well, miss your blog posts!" and didn't hear back from her which was odd (we had exchanged messages about writer-world stuff and she always answered back quickly). I checked her website and it had a front page post from July 28 so I figured all was OK but when I checked Twitter, I saw this post from her publisher and it reported she had died last month! That was quite the shock. So rest in peace Karen Ranney, I loved your books and you will be very much missed in the romance world!

Mystery Solved...Unfortunately :(
I hate it when my bloggy friends disappear. Carla's blog disappeared a while ago and I never did find out why (although the blog is gone, she is mentioned in this article). And while I was saddened by Cheap Chick's last post, I was glad that she did take the time to make a quick post to let everyone know what was happening in her life. And Gil hasn't posted in months so I am wondering what happened to her. I know sometimes people get busy, have significant life changes they need to deal with, or simply get bored of blogging but I always wonder 'where did so and so go???'
