– posted on my Facebook page in June, it’s taken a bit of time to remember to post it here –
Hello. You may have noticed that it’s June and Aspire is not yet out in the world as I promised it would be. I have nothing to offer but my sincere apologies. Aspire isn’t ready, and I cannot put out a book that isn’t yet ready. I should have – as always – been more upfront with you when deadlines were not met.
I truly have no excuses, though I do have reasons. I can’t talk about most of them publicly at this time, but please know I covet your good thoughts and your prayers (if you’re a praying type of person). Life puts a lot of pressures on us at times, and the last few years have definitely been one of those times for me. I thank those of you who have messaged me for your concern. I am okay, my kids are okay, and I am slowly finding my way back to being a teller of stories.
I do not have any new dates – and as my boss at work says, “No one wants to hear about the labor pains, they just want to see the baby.” So someday – hopefully sooner rather than later – I’ll show up with a brand new baby book and you can all assure me that I didn’t even look pregnant (lie if you have to).
I do sincerely appreciate everyone who has read any of my books, and those of you who care about this trilogy especially. Thank you so very much for your support.
