December Update

Hi everybody! Just in case you don’t make it to the end of the post (we all know I’m long-winded ;), I want to start off by wishing you all a very happy holiday season! Thank you so much for all the support and kindness through this past year, all the more so because I’ve been MIA for such a long stretch. Your FB comments, reviews, and emails have meant the world to me and helped keep my spirits up during a rocky time.

And that’s, sadly, what the rest of this post is about. I wish I could say the reason I’ve been so quiet is because I’m plugging away at getting this next book released (although I am definitely doing that as well!), but there’s a little more to it than that.

The short version is that I was diagnosed this fall with an autoimmune disorder. Hopefully now that I know what’s going on, I can figure out what my new “normal” is a little more easily and work with it rather than against it. Unfortunately, it’s taken a lot more time than I thought it would to get to this point, and I’m still finding my feet.

This doesn’t excuse the ghastly delay of “Where Honor Lies,” but I hope it explains it a little. The book is still coming. I honestly thought it would be out months ago.That is how much of a wrench this health stuff has been! Up until about a week ago, I was still convinced it would be ready to go by Christmas. I’ve been quiet online recently because I kept hoping the next thing I’d have to say is “it’s here!” It didn’t happen that way, and believe me, I’m disappointed too!

So, to sum all that up: I am so, so sorry it’s taking so long. As I’ve said before, I don’t let anything leave my hands until I’m absolutely satisfied it’s the best I can offer. This one isn’t quite there yet, but it will be. I will keep you updated.

Thanks again for your patience and support. Have a happy holiday full of books and an amazing New Year!
