I'm Back. Sort of~



I read all about the different stages of grief, how it is healthy to hold nothing back, etc...but it hasn't made the pain any less potent. Dad is still gone.

I could stay in my room and cry, but I have done enough of that already. So I am slowly emerging from my den and will try to move forward. One step, I am going the end of this month to spend some time with my mother and sister for a few weeks, that should help the transition. The hubs has been a rock for me through this, as he always is.

In the meantime, I have put a lot of things on hold with regard to my writing and I should try and create a forward motion. I realize I have not had a new release since December, and may not for awhile. A few things are bubbling though. I have a pending contract offer on a novel if I agree to the revisions, so more news on that soon. Also, I will be getting the rights back to The Hero Sandwich and am making plans for a re-release with a new pub. It will have a new title and no doubt a new edit. More to come on that.

My Ellora's Cave contract? Nothing new to report. As far as I know, KNIGHT OF CHRISTMAS will be coming out later in the fall, but I have no recent news on edits, cover art, etc.

So I am still in a sort-of holding pattern, but am making a few movements in the right direction.

When a family sickness/tragedy hits, it reveals that all this—writing, social media, and all the annoyances that come with it—mean nothing in the long run. But I am glad I can turn to it now to help keep my mind off the hurt and the sting of loss.

Thanks to all for the kind words of condolences.
