Wow, it feels like forever since I made a post and looking at the date of the last one, it just might have been forever.
I’m sorry to do that, but here’s what’s been going on:
1. I’ve been spending more time with family.
Last year at this time, I was working 16 hours a day. Six days a week It was brutal. I got up at 5 and went to bed at 11; worked for almost all of those waking hours except when I was eating or showering. I had hired a college student to help with the kids, clean the house, cook, etc. It was too much. It took a lot out of me and all because I didn’t want my name to be forgotten. I wanted to constantly have a new release so I’d be remembered. Frankly, after running myself ragged and realizing how much I was missing out on with my kids, I vowed this year I wouldn’t do that. I made the promise last December that I’d spend more time this year with my kids, husband and friends and I’ve kept it. Does it mean I took a hit in sales? Absolutely. But you know, money comes and goes, your kids only get older. Then they want nothing to do with you. So, this summer, I cut out a lot of extras: blogging, cut down on social media, etc, in order to be a better mom, wife, and friend.
2. Passions of Gentleman is still in the works.
In January when I first put out Secrets of a Viscount, I’d predicted that Desires would be in May and Passions in November. So far, with my more restricted summer schedule, that looks to be about right.
3. Cover changes.
Change is a funny thing. Some love it, others hate it; some embrace it and others tolerate it. I recently have decided to make a change to some of my covers due to a short list of reasons. This decision was not made easily, but if you’re interested in seeing them before I officially reveal them all here…
I think that’s about it. I do plan to get back onto a more routine schedule of blogging again. I thank you all so much for your support and appreciate your patience during my absence!
