I wish to apologize to all of you for not keeping my blog active over the last month. And, for that matter, for the sporadic updates over the past several months.
Sometimes life has a way of turning upside down on us, and it can happen to anyone, whether you’re Joe IT in the computer engineering business or a writer struggling to make a dent in the market. And, well, I’m both of those.
I’ve always been hesitant to post personal details about what’s going on in my life, I’m still not used to being a part of the social media world like this. So I hope you all will forgive me for having trouble getting to the point.
My girlfriend and I are parting ways this week, after struggling with our relationship for what feels like a really long time. Those of you who bought my first novel, she’s the one I spoke of in the Acknowledgements and the About the Author sections.
In order to honor her privacy, I will not discuss any of the details. This has been a really difficult time for me. I have never felt so stressed before as I have the past few weeks, and it’s affected every aspect of my life, including writing. I’ve just not had the energy to write in my blog or on my author’s Facebook page.
I will come back, of course, and probably sooner than even I expect. I also still plan for a Fall release of Burning Skies, and considerable headway has been made in that regard. But please continue to be patient with me. I promise, I’ll be back soon.
