A Clearer Explanation

Yes, just about everything I’m writing or supposed to write is late and delayed. The primary reason is my mother’s health. I have no control over her condition or the toll it takes on the entire family, and specifically on my ability to write as much or as effectively.

At the moment, I am finishing my novella for an upcoming anthology. That novella is also late, but I hope to get it to the copy-editor early next week-ish.

That means that Surrender To Ruin has been waiting for another read-thorough after a recent major revision to the first third of the novel. I am pretty sure it’s close to complete, and that after some tidying up, I will be sending that off to copy-edits.

I’m just slower these days, and it’s even more important that I make sure I am mentally refreshed.

So, there you go. That’s why things are slower than normal.

    Don’t stress yourself! Take as much time as it takes; your life has to come first. Your readers are here whenever you finish.

    Take as much time as you need. You have enough stress without adding more. Your readers know the value of your work and are eager to buy your books whenever they appear — and are grateful for them.
