We have a lot of wonderful people on the Celebrate the Small Things hop! Each week, I love visiting everyone’s blogs and hearing about their accomplishments and what they’re grateful for!
Naturally, some people don’t always have time to post every week. That’s okay. It’s a blog hop for fun, and I try to keep it that way.
April and May are especially busy because so many participate in the A-Z Challenge daily posts, and you have to be a super-blogger to try to keep another blog hop going during the A-Z. And by May, some people are collapsed on their couches or have unplugged their computer or are hiding in their closets mumbling to themselves. Many need a blogging break.
I like to give bloggers the benefit of the doubt and don’t take anyone’s name off the list until they’ve missed an entire two months of posts.
I began culling the list this week and will continue next week. If a name disappears, it’s just in the interest of efficiency, so people don’t have to click around to blogs that haven't been active in a while and who can’t return comments.
Anyone can get back on the list at anytime—just write to me and ask. :)
Do you think this is fair? Should I wait longer than 2 months?
My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Katie @ TheCyborgMom

SOUL CUTTER by Lexa Cain
The Soul Cutter is hunting again.
Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.
In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan's only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.
When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake. Élan is fighting for her very soul.
