IMPORTANT: Hurricane Irene

Hey, there, Pretty Readers,

We have some very important, non-book related information to talk about today.

For those of you who don't know, we four cousins of Pretty in Fiction are all residents of eastern Ocean County, New Jersey (refer to maps below, Jesse and Taylor live in Toms River, Courtney and I slightly south east).

This means, of course, that all four of us are directly in the projected path of Hurricane Irene (we've actually been getting some of the storm's outer bands for several hours now):

At this time we're not entirely sure what the effects of Irene may be, but the possibilities we are expecting are not good. Lots of flooding, airbourne debris, possible tornadoes, and loss of power for maybe a week (more, or less).

Because we have no way of knowing what exactly will happen, the rest of the staff and I here, at Pretty in Fiction, wanted to let you guys know in advance just in case, for what ever reason, we are unable to get back online and update for some time.

We should be getting the worst of the storm between 7-8am tomorrow, so we will try to keep you posted on our status if we can.

We know we are not the only ones being affected by this storm and so those of you who have already, are already, or will also have to endure Irene, we wish you well, and hope that you and your families stay safe during this time.

Your Pretty in Fiction Staff,
Kira, Jesse, Taylor, and Courtney
