I haven’t wanted to write about the things that are stressing me the most recently, as they involve family members. Out of respect for their privacy, I haven’t specified anything, but please understand that, although the issues don’t involve me personally, I am very close with my family. These things affect me more than you would think, and I’m losing sleep and having physical symptoms from stress and anxiety.
I want to focus on promoting my books and planning events. I want to tell everyone to read them and that I hope they love them. But I’m monumentally distracted, and I can’t seem to find the focus to do so. I do want people to like them, and I do have events coming up. I hope that you will join me at one of the book signings or one of the podcasts. Obviously, I’m looking forward to those, even if my family issues are stressful. But meeting readers and potential readers cheers me up immensely. If you have read on of my books, please consider leaving a good review at your point of purchase and/or on Goodreads. I would be very grateful. You cannot imagine how good it feels to hear that someone loved my books.
In the meantime, I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to post. I’ll try to update with book-related news, but the family issues are becoming more involved, and I may not be able to write incisive posts. I apologize that I haven’t been able to write any of the posts I’d actually planned. Trust me, they were more interesting than this one!
In the meantime, please check out my Upcoming Appearances page for my current schedule. I’m also updating my social media when I have new announcements. Thanks for your patience during this difficult time.
