I had debated on whether this was something I wanted to share publicly or not and I think that it's important to share, as hard as it is to say. For the past three years my darling husband had been fighting cancer. Our daughter has only ever known daddy as sick. He fought against this aggressive disease over and over again as it kept coming back. But it had gotten to the point where it was stronger than any method of treatment. He lost the battle days ago. We all lost with his passing.
I know I don't have many readers, hell, no one may even see this, but in the chance that someone does and wants to know the why for my sudden silence I wanted my intentions known. I'm not walking away from the Uruwashi project, simply delaying it while I take time to grieve. The first draft of book four, White Lies, is nearly finished and I will get back to that last chapter and editing once I can focus again. But it may not see publication in 2015. Then again, it might as I try to break away from the chaos. Writing for me has always been therapeutic and I foresee it helping me again through these terrible times.
As I said in a old post from early last year, I'd hoped to get at least one April title out a year. That may not be a realistic goal now but it is something for me to focus on. Hopefully life won't throw any more darkness my way.
