That, of course, left me staring at the screen wondering how to answer that. I opted for the health front answer: I've had a wicked cold since the end February when I went to my grandson's first birthday. I must have lost my antibodies and I'd forgotten how baby yuck turns into the plague. Seriously folks, this cold has been kicking my butt. I've just started to pull out of it this week. Slowly upward, getting better every day, but not quite there yet.
The second group of questions is about: What are you writing? When are you releasing again?
Well I have 2 books coming out in April(Book 1 & 2 of the Locked & Loaded Series): The Manny and Pistol Whipped. Both books are on preorder sale @ 99cents until release day. Since they are probably not going into KU, you should grab them while on sale.
Then we come to the final group of questions: how are you doing? That relates to the "Oh shoot" section of my response. Ignore it or truthful answer, which way do I go? You all have been with me long enough you know which way I go. Truth. I'm having a rough time of it, really down, finding it hard to rally enough to get into that zone to write. You see, you'll hear this all the time: the Indie writing community is like a dysfunction large family---it's true, it's true--everyone in everyone's shit, with a memory that lasts a century and ground wars, endless Indie wars, for absolutely no reason. And it's left me flat and down and struggling to pick myself up again to start pushing forward and finish this project, The Parker Universe, I started nearly two years ago. I try to keep it out, stay in my "cone of silence" but it bleeds in and just gets me down. Indie Land is overwhelming at times for a modestly older gal like me.
Silly: I know.
I should block it out: I know.
But every once in the while I hit that magic marker where it's too much, I get down and I just need to step back and take a break from everything. That's where I am right now. Taking some mental health days away from Indie Land. Sort of Author Blue flu.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart all of you who sent me notes, I appreciate it and it did more for me than you know. I'm just recovering from the plague I caught from my grandson and feeling overwhelmed by the Indie scene. But I am releasing 2 books in April, possibly 3, but I won't say what book, cuz right now I'm still flat on my feet and trying to do anything, even work on my edited copy, seems too much.
Thank you all for being such marvelous readers and as ever I wish you peace.
