Hi blog visitors, loyal readers, and generally well-appreciated fans! I wanted to let you guys know what's been going on with me. It's only fair, since so many of you have been waiting patiently and offering me such encouragement through emails and comments. The family is finally almost better, the holidays are over and my kid are back to school. I should have plenty of time, right?
Not really. So many projects have been vying for my attention. Beyond that, I've been dealt with a lot of bad news lately. We lost our dog in November, I found out my grandmother has cancer, my sister has some mysterious stomach illness and her house was broken into and now we know Grandma's cancer is a really bad kind and she's refusing treatment.
I have a huge, very complicated family (to say the least) but overall, I'm close to 3 people. My dad, my sister, and my grandma. I haven't seen my grandma in years, but I'm planning a trip down there with my kids next month. Since we live on opposite ends of the country, and the economy has sucked, it's been a long time since I saw her.The thought that will soon be because she's no longer there and I can't even call her every 2 weeks like we do now, really stresses me out. Focusing on doing anything for more than a little bit at a time has been impossible.
I've finished a few projects that were outstanding though, and I'm striving to get my head on straight. You will of course get my flash pieces, but I'm going to attempt to post as much as possible on Adverse Effects until I'm back on track with the story in my head. Please forgive me if the chapters are shorter than usual, though.
I have a few other things planned for my blog this month too with some author features, reviews, and tip blogs! Even more fun ... It's my anniversary month! I'll have been blogging for a year on Sunday! In honor of that, I'll be running a contest this weekend. One person will win a free copy of Pricolici and another will win a $10 Amazon or ARe gift card.
Okay, so another flash piece on Wednesday, and I should be able to update Adverse Effects tomorrow or Thursday at the latest, plus a contest this weekend! Hopefully it will be a good week!
