Autumn Update

I will not look back on the summer of 2014 with undiluted pleasure. As mentioned in my blog post Bad & Good (06/09/14), both of my elderly parents suffered multiple medical issues throughout the year. My father passed away on September 17th, which was a shock despite his ongoing health problems. I never expected him to die, thinking most of his issues could be fixed by consistent medical attention. It was not to be.

As their only child, I was left to deal with all formal details and financial matters. It is not a task I'd ever wish on anyone.

As stated before, circumstances have forced me to reevaluate the release schedules for both Bloodlust and Blood & Soul. As it stands at the moment, I've had to push back the estimated book releases to 2015 and 2016, respectively.

I'm currently fighting a relentless chest cold, spending most of my time drinking hot tea and reading rather than writing. I just can't muster the energy or creativity to write at the moment.

My latest reads? Elizabeth of York by Alison Weir and Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett, which is the final part of his Century Trilogy.
Reading keeps my mind occupied. It helps me cope with the recent heavy stress.
