Coming out of hiding–well, only a little!

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!

  1. Like you mentioned, your kids grow so fast and things with them change so quickly…spending time with them is so precious! I am glad you have been able to stick to your guns! 🙂 We will be here, awaiting your next book. Enjoy Autumn!

  2. Yay for you Rose! Making important changes can be difficult but so rewarding. I’m glad for you that you have your priorities straight. Your writing is worth the wait, so your faithful readers will be here when your next book is ready for us.

  3. Oh my on working 16 hours a day. My eyes bugged out when I read it. I don’t blame you at all for slowing down. Hopefully, your books will hit high in the ranks and make up for it.

    Wow on the new covers! They look great. 😀

  4. First of all, family always comes first. And I think you made the right decision. Second, 16 hours a day is too much! I hope now that you’ve cut down, you’ve allowed yourself to have some fun. 🙂
