It's been a while, so let's recap.

I'm a writer (occasionally)
I write... and sometimes people enjoy reading what I have written. My short story collection is available to purchase on my website or on Amazon. I am currently in the process of getting it available as an e-book for all you Kindle lovers out there. I am also working on another short story collection (sci fi themed), a novel, and a few different children's books

I'm a copy editor (freelance)
I have a certificate from UC Santa Barbara and I take gigs. I have helped people with newsletters, short stories, websites, and promotional materials. I also do resumes and cover letters. Fees and information can be found on my website.

I'm a Podcaster
My podcast Pages and Popcorn Podcast features me and my co-host talking about movies that are based on books and the original source material. We are both book nerds with English degrees... and we both have a lot of opinions. New episodes drop every other Friday (itunes, spotify, soundcloud, google, etc) and we have a website and a Patreon and a Facebook so you can listen, support us, and stay informed!

I'm a consultant.
I do communications support for a nonprofit, I do social media support for a nonprofit. I do the periodic google/website/email/etc training for seniors.

I'm the Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Central Valley Alliance of Atheists and Skeptics
This is pretty self-explanatory. We have a website. we host events. We are pretty awesome.

I also run a book club, am a mother to a very active and wonderful six-year-old, try to keep up with reading for fun and a few TV shows... and I drink a lot of coffee.

Hi! I'm Kaylia and I need a nap!

January Recap: All The Things!

January was BUSY!

I resigned from a few committees. I accepted a job.

I read 10 books. (Read along with me at Goodreads)

I produced three podcasts. (Listen and subscribe over here at Pages and Popcorn Podcast Website, Facebook, Twitter... Patreon!!!)

And ... I went to Hawaii with my sisters!

This was my first trip with my sisters and one of my one "vacations."

I mean... when I was a kid they called them "vacations" but what they really were was a 17-hour car ride to the middle of Utah to see family. So. No. Not a vacation.

The Maifan-San and I went to Tokyo and England... and they were great trips... but again... not super vacation /relaxing /restful etc sort of things.

This one? This one was relaxing and restful and I read books on the beach! And played in the water! And saw stars! And (begrudgingly) went on a hike! And saw whales! And ate a coconut! And went to a luau!

It was awesome.

There is no way February can top January... but with a visit from my mom scheduled, actually starting that new job, prepping for FogCon, producing even more podcasts, and hitting the one year anniversary of being healthy... well, February won't be half bad!
