Confession time!

I know people have been wondering and wondering about the release date for THE ONLY REASON.

See, I suck at maintaining a work-life balance. Without quite realizing it, I kept taking on more and more work responsibilities and staying longer hours, in addition to my regular job. I worked 60+ hours every week and didn’t say no too often. I’d get to bed past midnight and then get up at 6:30 AM to start all over again.

It all came to a head last week when I almost broke down in sobs. I had made myself physically sick from working (until then, I didn’t realize that could happen!).

I am now effectively in the process of gradually shedding the “extra” hours and scheduling an actual vacation and clearing my schedule, so I can actually FINISH the book.

I already have a fair chunk of the book done. More than half, actually. I just need TIME to finish it in a few weeks, and then I’ll be able to edit/proofread and get the ball rolling on the ebook cover, book summary, etc. I also want to get my website design up and running.

Please have a little patience with me … I WILL get the book done! β™₯β™₯β™₯

  1. I can’t wait till you release your sequel. I’ve only became a book reader in the last couple of years. Never really had the time raising children and working but have taken time to do it now. I enjoy the quiet time and getting lost within a book and I have to say not too many books get me hooked where I can’t put them down. Your book reason and romance was one of those I couldn’t put down. Thank you for allowing me to get lost within your book.

    1. Oh, that is wonderful to hear, April! I’m so glad that you enjoyed reading my book, despite being so busy with your children. I’m hoping to release the sequel this summer, and I think I definitely will! Thank you again! πŸ™‚

  2. I loved your first book, Reason and Romance, and bought it as soon as I went on fictionpress and found out you took it down. Also, totally sympathize about the work load… πŸ˜› Please don’t make yourself sick because of it!!! Can’t wait until the sequel comes out! Hopefully Adrian and Alex finally admit their love for each other and finally get together. Although the whole stepbrother/sister thing is a problem… Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that you are an amazing writer. All of your characters have their own distinct and intriguing voice, which is really hard for me to achieve when I write. Please keep writing and update us on the release date for The Only Reason!

    1. Emily, thank you for your kind words! I admit, I really got burned out and I finally went on extended vacation, my first one in like five to six years! I’ve officially changed some parts of my job, so I feel like my workload will get better πŸ™‚ As for Alex and Adrian … oh, things are happening. Don’t you worry about that πŸ˜‰ I’ll keep you guys updated!

      1. I wanted to see where you were with the new release. It’s November and anxiously waiting to see what happens next. πŸ™‚
