I've been out of the loop for a while now, even my newsletter has gone fallow for several few months. I'm sure many of my fans have wondered about that. I've been quiet as to all the reasons for these things for the most part. Some of it is I'm trying to do more writing so I have more to offer in 2012, but there have been a whole host of other reasons as well. In 2010 I had to go back to working a day job because my husband lost his job and the unemployment finally ran out. It was just not enough to support two people, couple that with several of my freelance writing clients going under in the bad economy, getting booted from e-how when they decided to start booting writers, and you get the picture pretty quickly. Couple all that with two deaths recently, and my getting another cold, and it seems like sometimes it rains when it pours, and that's the way I've been feeling lately. Going back to a day job was a bit of a shock to my system as well, and while I've adjusted I don't have as much time as I'd like to write and promote. Hopefully, this trend of mine will change in 2012 with more new books, and getting back to having my newsletter be monthly again. I'd even like to have a few free stories for fans! That's the goal anyway.
So, that's what's been up with me and my life. Because I've been feeling overwhelmed with trying to have time to write and still manage my life and my day job I'm working on fitting in small blocks of writing time. Hopefully that will help me to get Doomed to Be Charmed done and available sometime in early 2012. Then I can start tackling the other WIP's in the same fashion. That's the plan anyway.
I still love hearing from readers and if you've read Alien Deceptions, Homecoming, A Gift From Home or any of my other stories, I'd love to hear what you thought. E-mail me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to post a comment.
